Hello, I just signed up here just to purchase and download this game. :) Unfortunately I'm encountering control problems and it's not the kind listed in the ReadMe.
Basically the game starts perfectly fine, but then I'm stuck in the main menu when I want to select to start a new game. The arrow keys don't work at all, the only key which actually does something is, for some reason, the 'alt' key which lets me select the different options, acting like an 'up' key, but there's no way to confirm anything. Besides the 'alt' key, only the keys for resizing the window work (and they do as intended, meaning no strange key remapping there), as is F12. But none of the keys listed in the manual do anything and when I pressed every other letter and number to see if some odd remapping was going on, I found no other key doing anything, either. The game otherwise seems to run normally, music and everything is there.
Thing I checked:
- Followed the troubleshooting problems in the ReadMe despite my problem being a bit different. I restarted my computer = no change. I unplugged every USB device and restarted again (I have no controller of any kind, but a mouse since I'm using a laptop) = no change. I then also disabled my WLAN and restarted again. Again, no luck.
- I changed my language setting of the keyboard back to German (I'm from Germany and had changed it to English because of the y/z switch of the keyboard). Nothing.
- I tested all my other RPG maker games to see if they have the same issues, which would clearly indicate a hardware problem on my end. But they all work fine. I'm not sure with which RPG maker version they were made, though; I think this is the first RPG Maker 2003 game I own.
Things which might be important: My laptop uses Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit, my graphic card (is it called that in English? I'm sorry, since I'm not a native speaker I really struggle sometimes) is called ATI Mobility Radeon HD 565v. The game is unzipped into a folder on my desktop, but moving it to a different location didn't help. I also tried deleting and unzipping it again, but that also didn't change a thing.
I also noticed that, compared to the Let's Play I watched, the screens in the beginning of the game (the two logos which appear before the main menu appears) disappear for me at a much faster rate, I see each only for a split second.
Any help would be really appreciated! I decided to buy this game after seeing the beginning of a Let's Play on Youtube and it looked so amazing that I decided to buy and experience it myself instead of just watching a Let's Play. So I really hope this problem can be resolved!
