Hey all,

If I added a feature to speed up normal game play (similar to speeding up replays) what key would you want to speed up game play and what key would you want to slow down game play?

So, for example, pressing the up arrow on your keyboard would speed up game play from normal speed to 2x.... pressing the up arrow again would speed it up further to 3x, etc. You could also press the down arrow to go slower.

Up and down arrows make the most sense, but they might not be the best keys as they aren't close to the other hotkeys you use.

I thought I'd ask the community for their input and preference before I possibly implement this feature. :)

Which + and - keys? The ones on the numberblock? I have no numberblock.

what is with y and x (on a qwerty-keyboard this are z and x)?

And what about the option to set the speed to 0.5? It might be easier to juggle those rockets than.

I can only set it to even numbers (ie. 1x, 2x, 3x etc).

Ya, any keys on the keyboard would work. So far I like the , and . keys the most as they are the same keys with < and > on them.
