Hotkey Command+Q on Mac

Post by schube »

CTRL+Q and ALT+Q are important Hotkeys in OpenRA.
Unfortunately, COMMAND+Q exits OpenRA immediately, because COMMAND+Q is the system wide "Quit application" hotkey on Mac.

So it happend to me several times, that I wanted to execute CTRL/ALT+Q, but instead used COMMAND+Q by mistake.

Could you guys please add an additional confirmation box ("Do you really want to quit?") so the user can click "cancel".

Thank you!

PS: I love OpenRA, thank you so much for it!

This is really a problem and as the numbers 1+2 are right above the Q i managed to close the game down many times because of this, I presume a lot of people aren't on Macs
