0005439: ctrl U stalls the game when too many numbers are put into it
wile i was runnin a macro that involved moving my guy back and forth i hit ctrl u, i thought it would maybe stop the macro from playing but instead it filled it with "64646464646" and the game stalled.
ctrl u
type lots of numbers
wait for the game to respond again :D
i guess i should go look up what keys do instead of findin it out myself xD

Reminder sent to: Baughn

This might be expected behavior, but it'd be helpful if you weighed in.

I think we probably want an upper limit here, yes, as well as some way to stop a macro from playing. Any way. In practice, hitting any key whatsoever should probably do it; I can't see any reason to let you mix them.

Probably related to 0005366

i tryed hitin random other keys like moving a different direction/waiting a turn/opening my inventory and whatnot, yea i think it might be related to 0005366 as well but its also its own problem, i'm sure if you just hit too many numbers wile its open it will stall the game anyways.

theres also a slight problem with timing on macros for adventure mode, setting a macro to walk 10 spaces north and 10 spaces south get you about 5 spaces north and then 1 space south, tho i guess that might be due to my guy's speed being at 439.

actually no i forgot i had set ctrl u to do the macro 10 times, with just one normal play i got 2 spaces north and didn't move south at all.

Let's limit this to 99 repeats max.
