Well, you can change your keyboard layout to Dvorak while playing.

It would be nice to have a program that randomize your keyboard layout from a huge list of layouts after every keystroke. I would pay for such a program.

Or turn on --comptrn, which is loads of fun anyway. I love to watch the computer EA Ermor fighting ineffectively against the computer Niefelheim, and occasionally intervening to smash an army or something.

In SP you could just turn off the program while it's resolving the turn.

I didn't read all of this thread: Don't shoot me if this solution has already been mentioned.

Here is a little script called 'dom' that re-maps the keyboard 'e' to 'r' (so you have two 'r' keys) and makes the 'end' key an 'e'. (It's harder to accidentally hit it there.) When dom3 quits, the script re-maps the original key-bindings. Unfortunately, this mapping, when in use is system wide. (ie. have fun trying to IM when playing ;-) ) This is for Linux.

Code:
#!/bin/bash

xmodmap -e "keycode  26 = 0x0072"    # make e --> r
xmodmap -e "keycode 103 = 0x0065"    # make end --> e
dom3                                 # you might need the full path
xmodmap -e "keycode  26 = 0x0065"    # make e --> e 
xmodmap -e "keycode 103 = 0xff57"    # make end --> end

Every system, linux or windows or mac, has various ways to reprogram a key. The trick is to do it on the script (or shortcut or icon) that takes you into Dom3, then have it change it back on the way out.

As for the linux system-wide thing, I dont think its system wide if you create a seperate user for playing Dom3.

Actually, for me that has been the only reason I ever accidentally End Turn. My computer is set to Dvorak by default, but I usually use QWERTY for Dominions--and if I hit 'D' for "province Defence", immediately after starting a game and before switchiing to QWERTY, the key 'D' is 'E' in Dvorak and it ends my turn. Much frantic process-killing ensues, to try to stop Dom3 before it finishes turn computation and saves the files to disk. Fortunately Dom3 often takes several minutes to process on my machine so I'm usually okay.

However, this is one of the main reasons I have taken to automatically backing up my files every turn via the --postexec command. The other reason is so that I can figure out what magic sites were in province X that I just lost.
