Comments on DOM event portability revisited


Try adding a style rule like body {overflow:hidden;} to prevent the scrolling. It works for me om Chrome, anyway.

Hmm, maybe I’ll try and see what comes out. Didn’t bother me anyway. And are you saying the cursor keys work on Chrome? I’ve just received a compatibility report to the contrary. 🙂

Fun, and works in Iceweasel 3.5.19 (unbranded Firefox from Debian) as well.

The tiny scrolling on arrows is, so far, not problematic (though I suspect it may become so at some point). I don’t know how difficult it is to actually implement in JS (possibly trivial, possibly a lot harder than I think), but adding the ability for players to configure which keys they were using might make azerty and pyfgcrl players whine a little less.

Of course, the easy workaround is just to put the game on a page by itself. But that would be cheating. *grin*

Yes, in an iframe. I did that for Marocco. It’s convenient in many ways, but it just seems inelegant.
