Essentially, if I tilt my computer left I get a C#, and if I tilt it towards me I get a D#.

I'm on a laptop, which has some kind of accelerometer in it (to help protect the hdd i think or something), which seems to interfere with MilkyTracker. It's perhaps related to the switch to SDL 2 in version 1.0.0, seeing as this bug does not happen on 0.90.86.

Further testing leads me to find that tilting away from myself registers as K, left as L, towards myself as Ø and away from myself as Æ.

Seems like some weird issue with SDL 2...

Do other SDL2 applications exhibit similar problems? If it's not an issue with SDL2, I can imagine that Milky is truncating some key scancodes somewhere and they end up as regular keyboard codes...

Happens in ProTracker-win, as well as some application somebody made for me to test the keytilt.

So did you file a bug with SDL2 yet? At this point you definitely should. I doubt there is anything MilkyTracker can do, apart from upgrading to a bugfixed SDL2 once it's released.

I haven't gotten around to it yet, but I've been meaning to. Have had some more important things to take care of first.
