Has this title fixed the '=' laptop key shortcut not speeding up the game?

Title asks it all. Was a really good game back in the day and I wish I still had my copy. But when they patched it they screwed up the '=' key shortcut for laptop users and made the game unplayable as a consequence. So it was uninstalled and, stupid me, I lost the copy I had.

Would buy it again if they fixed that issue.

Figured a fix...

Kinda involved but here it is.

1. Get a keyboard with a numpad or a usb numpad.
2. Own a mouse that allows setting of keystroke assignments to mouse buttons, like setpoint for Logitech mice.
3. Hook them both into the laptop having the issue.
4. When setting the keystroke for the mouse USE the numpad control for '+'.
5. Unhook all the extra stuff.
6. Make sure to leave the mouse software that let you set the keystroke assignment running.
7. Start CotN.
8. Enjoy not having the issue anymore.

Still kinda annoyed that this is still a problem they never fixed but for now I will just let the lapping waves of the Nile whisper to me an wash the stress away.
