[Solved] Game won't detect any keys
Everytime I start a game my character won't move, I tried changing the key bindings but the only keys that work are the Tab, shift, ctrl, alt, and the arrows. I don't know what to do, I tried running the game in compatibility mode with windows 7 and it only works the first time I press a key but then it stops, tried compatibility mode with windows xp and it won't detect the keys too. Could somebody help me?
(Windows 8 64 bit, 4gb of ram, gtx 760, intel 4770k)

I got it to work, it turned down to be because of zemana anti-logger, how Ironic... if any of you have a similar problem, check which programs are running in the background, I'll leave the Thread so all of you can see how to fix it. Enjoy the game!

I have the same problem and I cant seem to fix it. I dont have any programs or anything in the background running. There are a bunch of backgroung processes running that I have no idea what they mean. Please, any help would be appreciated, this is really frickin frustrating

Go to safe mode and check if the game works, if it does then maybe one of those processes are making a conflict with how the game detects the keystrokes. also check your antivirus do you happen to use F-Secure? because some people had the same problem because of the antivirus and F-Secure is the one that caused them the most trouble, not only with SS but with some other applications.

If you've got the big bucks i.e. $00.59 you can get the version (serious sam the first encounter [non hd]); that one is usually more compatible than steam's version: it is listed as compatible with Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8). If both you and cannot get it to work you can get your money back per their 30 day money back guarantee. It is on sale for 90% off for the next 44 minutes for a grand total of U.S. $ 00.59.
