In the new update how do i use my keyboard, i can still exit the game by pressing esc and then Y or N but the visuals still say Y and B and so i can't get past the menu as it asks me to press A ._. so it's basically always launching in controller mode or whatever

Hi there:

I just have to ask a few basic questions first:

• can you give me your system specs?
• at the time, did you have a controller plugged in?
• at the time, did you have any keymapping software installed (for remapping keys, or apps like JoyKey for mapping controllers to keyboard strokes)?

In the meantime, here are the keyboard controls (these are also available in the game's manual):

Left and right arrows: move left and right
Up arrow: look up
Y key: choose "Yes"
N key" choose "No"
Right arrow (when in a text screen): speed up text
Down arrow (text screen): continue
ESC: quite game
F4: toggle full-screen/windowed modes

Intel dual core i3 2.4 / 2.4 GHz 4gb RAM 64 bit Windows 7 ATI Mobility Radeon 5470 512 mb Graphics Card, i had my USB wifi antenna (from the back of the old 360) plugged in to my laptop so i get a better connection to my wifi (i assure you it works) i have MotionInJoy installed but it wasn't running at the time, and the only thing i could plug my xbox controller into my laptop with was the plug and play, which only provides power, so there was no way my xbox controller could have been connected to my laptop

Rebump.

The game is not recognizing my gamepad (an old Logitech Rumblepad 2.) So I tried using the keyboard and it wouldn't recognize it either, I had to alt-tab out of it and kill it with the process manager.

Foxhack: The game so far only "officially" supports Xbox 360 controllers; do you have one of those on hand to try?

If not, please let me know the following:
- Do you have any keymapping software installed (JoyToKey, etc.)?
- If you close Home, unplug your gamepad, and then launch Home, do the keyboard controls work?
- when you try to play the game with the gamepad plugged in, are the on-screen button prompts for a controller or for keyboard? You'll see "Press [green A]" or "Press Space," depending
- lastly, what OS are you using, and have you updated your drivers?



Eat S***t:

Please make sure all joysticks are totally unplugged from anything connected to your PC to try. My questions to Foxhack apply here too, specifically:
- If you close Home, unplug your gamepad, and then launch Home, do the keyboard controls work?

Thanks, guys,
B.

Gah, I thought you were telling me to ... eat stuff. :P

Okay, to answer your questions:

"- Do you have any keymapping software installed (JoyToKey, etc.)?"

No. Well, yes, but it doesn't load automatically, I only open it so I can use the gamepad with very old games.

"- when you try to play the game with the gamepad plugged in, are the on-screen button prompts for a controller or for keyboard? You'll see "Press [green A]" or "Press Space," depending"

It tells me to press A.

"- lastly, what OS are you using, and have you updated your drivers?"

Windows 7 Home Premium, and I have the newest drivers.

Regarding the question I didn't answer - I just received an update to the game, so I tried running it again. This time the controller WAS recognized and pressing buttons worked. Of course since this isn't a GFW pad, none of the buttons were labeled correctly so I just had to guess.

But it seems to work now.
