I have a french keyboard also, and it works !!!
Actually, when the game initialises, it can not detect the 1,2,3... keys
of cours, since they are &é"... But if you go in the options and
customize all that, it works fine.
I am actually trying to use this trick in legacy doom, which makes a
direct access via X to the keyboard, and which can't make any
distinction between the 2 key and... the left arrow !!!
