[Bug] French AZERTY keyboard on laptop : no numbers !
« on: October 24, 2014, 04:24:44 PM »
Hello !

Found an annoying bug.

I'm using a French AZERTY keyboard on my French laptop.
No keypad, so numbers are only available above letters.

On French keyboards, they can only be entered by pressing "Shift" Key.

In fact :
- without shift key : &"'(-_
- with shift key : 1234567890

Understanding ?

Ok, now in "Unbound", you need to enter a code with a number (will not spoil but linked to a phone call to a boy).
And guess what : I can never enter the number needed !
So I'm stuck :( and can't continue.

I'm using Steam so... maybe one day will be able to try with a normal keyboard on another computer through cloud saves but... that's annoying :(

Any idea to bypass this bad trick ?

Thanks a lot :)
Merci beaucoup ;)

Temporarily set your keyboard to QWERTY in your system preferences, I would say.

It does not work for me, on Linux with French system, even if I put a QWERTY layout. I tried to restart a new game, but I'm stucked on azerty, I've tested it on the phone book right at the beginning of the game.

Does it mean I need to reinstall the game with qwerty activated ? It does not make any sense to me...

Note : I'm playing with a real keyboard connected to my laptop, and none of the nums are working (neither the numpad and the numline in the main keyboards)

Above screen, near the clock, you have a clock a little "white square" with "Fr" or "En" to change keyboard language.
Just choose the "En (Anglais US)", then launch the game : it will be with QWERTY keyboard :)
It worked for me like this.

Hi all! Sorry for the delay in responding. I've been ensconced in VO recording for the last two weeks. It seems you managed to get help from elsewhere, so thanks!

No problem :)

Also, it occurs in the following episode, when you need to enter an e-mail password with numbers : need to change layout to english, then launch the game and enter password...

Hi! I'm stuck with this horrible issue as well! I'm playing convergence now and need to enter an emailadress and password. I can fix entering the numbers by changing my keyboard to qwerty. However, for the life of me I can't find out to produce an @ symbol for the e-mail. Please help?

Change your keyboard layout to "English" then launch the game.

Change your keyboard layout to "English" then launch the game.

It's not working. Numbers work as they should but to get the "@" you need to use the shift+2 short cut on a qwerty keyboard. Unfortunately, the shift key does not seem to work. shift+2 only result in a "2". No matter what keyboard setting is used.

I'm totally stuck. :-(

Ok. Answering to myself in case it could help someone else.

So I'm actually playing the gog linux version of the Blackwell games and they all seem to have the same problem i.e the "shift" "ctrl" and "alt" keys won't work.

So here's what I did to be able to play the games and continue my adventure :

1- I installed the gog windows version of the games using WINE (to find out I could not use my saves.)

2- I compiled the AGS engine on my system using this link : https://github.com/adventuregamestudio/ags/blob/master/debian/README.md

3- I then ran the game with it using the windows versions I had installed with WINE and I was able to use my saves and continue my adventure. All keys are functional even with a French AZERTY keyboard layout.
