Cannot move several times by pressing arrow key

In the classic versions of ADOM, if I hold for example the right arrow, my character keeps moving right (and attacking whatever is there) while I keep the key present.

In the latest NotEye version, this is also the case if I press a number key (e.g. 6 for right).

However, if I use the arrow keys, the character only moves once, when I release the key. This is not very comfortable.

Edit: This is an issue for me too. Dis regard my other post. I am stupid.

Sorry Al

Hmm, strange. But do you have a numpad? I mean the arrow keys that are not in the numpad. The ones that just have up, down, left and right arrow. (I was playing on a laptop)

So yea. I checked again. The numpad on the keyboard works for holding down but the arrow keys do not.

I checked this on my laptop, also with Win7 64 bit - the numpad works fine, while the arrow keys result in only one move, upon key release.

Did this bug get missed?

E.g - large room or vault with weak monsters, you have to tap the arrow keys hundreds of times. Its definitely an issue for people that don't have numpads.

Should be fixed for r58. Although I think that a real fix here should be to add some kind of a repeat command, so you are not killed by a powerful monster coming from the other side.
