View Full Version : @ Key problems for valid email

07-03-2009, 09:25 AM
cant seem to type my email in because my @ key doesnt seem to want to work. I have tried altering the layout to US and UK but no luck. For some reason I can get !,$, % to work but have problems with numbers 2 and 3 with shift held down to get " and . The same goes for ' when I use shift with that to get the @ key. This is frustrating me as I would like to play multiplayer. Further note I have tried to type in word and notepads and pasting using ctrl + v but no luck.

Never had this issue before, ever!!

Why we should have to do this is beyond me, however for those few stuck with not being able to use there @ key I found a solution that worked for me and may work for you.

Change your keyboard settings to GERMAN(Austria). This is done by going to Control panel>Regional and language options>Keyboards and langauges tab ( change keyboard tab ) ADD then scroll down to German(Austria) press the + and tick the German box. Then set it as your default.

In game when it asks you for email simply hold down ALT GR + Q for the @ sign

NOTE- I didnt change back to enter my serial key and kept keyboard as German. Following changes are Z and Y have swapped places. To use 1-0 numbers HOLD SHIFT and ( - ) key doesnt work next to delete so use your numpads.

Now enjoy multiplayer or my new problem server time out issue. The joy!!!!
