Hey all,

I'm having a problem with the game recognising my directional keys and keypad - it just says unknown key. - the keypad works fine with other games and in windows.

I can play the game with 789uojkl, but it's highly annoying.

Any idea how i can fix the problems with the numerical keys?

Many thanks,
Cap

Are you sure you have Num Lock on?
Right, now you killed me. Happy?

So is this in Windows? You said "in other games and in windows" so I assume not?

Yes, in windows sorry, i meant to say that these keys work fine in every other app etc.

I don't know if it's a problem with the key binding or what.

Here is a tip for you from the days I used the Laptop

ASSUMING this is windows (though I am sure others have similar as well)

Go to accessories

Go to Accessability

Go to On-Screen Keyboard

There you go

I use this on my laptop to fill in the quite essential diagonals (since it doesn't have a num pad) though it could help you with your button problems

Still no dice with nlk on or off - So i guess this means that for some reason my version of the game has not got the keys bound correctly -
I downloaded the windows zip version from here: http://www.attnam.com/downloads.php?id=1&sid=58a324a... a few days ago.

Curiouser and curiouser....
