Can't type.

Postby Nate5709 » Sat Nov 18, 2006 12:42 am

Okay...this is really bad, especially in Diplomacy. Whenever I switch out of Defcon with alt-tab or double esc, I am unable to type in the chat box in Defcon. I have no clue what is going on and I'm not sure if this is a problem with all Defcon games or just the steam version, which is what I have. Please help. :(

okay, correction.

It sometimes doesn't type when I esc-esc, but ONLY sometime.

When I alt-tab, it still works.

When I ctrl-alt-del it ALWAYS doesn't work after i close the task manager.

And yes, I tried clicking on the chat box twice.

Its a known problem. Figure out which method works for you and just stick with it. Failing that, switching out then back in a few times usually fixes the problem. Annoying yes but atleast it can be avoided.
