Hello!

Do you currently have the joystick configuration or the keyboard configuration activated? You can check at options-->controls-->change control style, or something like that. There will be a "Default" and "Keyboard_only" options. Default is the joystick option.

Hi Chessking,

I have the default layout enabled. And I want to play with a joystick. The problem is that the game doesn't register any keyboard input.

Wait! Maybe I play on a notebook with a second keyboard. The game had also a problem when I had a gamepad and a joystick connected. Maybe that is what gives the game hiccups.

Let me try this real quick.

-Edit-

No same problem. -.-

Well I managed to run it on my old desktop PC without this problem.
Still mysterious.

Well, I have one more suggestion. On your notebook, make sure you are running the game in compatibility mode for xp or vista. It may be working on your desktop because it is the game's native operating system.

FOUND IT!

I had Synergy running, a program that lets me share the mouse and keyboard of my laptop with other Computers in my network. (It basically makes it, so that you can change between Computers like you would change between monitors)
And that seems to intercept my keyboard commands and stops them from registering in the game.

Thanks for the help!
