Letters and Numbers Not Working in Game

Recommended Posts

I just logged in after the servers came up to dance around Liberty.  Then, I realized that the tequilla window was up, so I hit alt+tab to minimize it.  Then I clicked back in the game and suddenly my letters and numbers stopped working properly.


They work fine in the game chat and in the character creation but that's it.  I can move with the arrow keys and use skills with the mouse, but my letters and numbers just don't work to move me or use skills. W,A,S,D do nothing.  1-0 do nothing.


Here's what I've done so far:

Reset keybinding

Save default settings, load from the default settings file

Logged out of the game and closed tequilla

Cleared the cache and temp files on my computer

Created a new character

Validated game files with the tequilla client a great many times


OS: Windows 10

KB: Logitech G510


Update: If I hold ALT, the keys start working for a bit but then I get stuck running in one direction and nothing will cancel/change it.


Am I just missing something or did I somehow corrupt my game?

Do you have any sort of custom gaming KB layout active?

No, there is nothing custom about from my KB that's active.  I've also switched out my main KB with a regular plain USB KB and the issue persists. 


If I delete the game directory and download a fresh copy, everything works just fine.  I've been playing for the past few days after a fresh install, and suddenly the issue happened again (no alt-tabbing this time).


I'm thinking this is some kind of bug with the current client or something.  Are there any logs I can submit?

No idea, but I had a huge problem with alt+tab a few days ago.  It simply would not tab out.

So I did the ol' ctrl+alt+delete to open the taskmanager. 


When it came back to my desktop, the tab for CoH was a big blank black box of nuthin'.  I couldn't even close it with the tab, had to close it through the taskmanager.


Then, just to be safe, I rebooted the computer.  Everything seemed fine after that, was even able to use alt+tab with success.
