Hey All,

When I go to save my game, after I type in my name and hit enter, nothing happens. My cursor just blinks and I can keep typing. How in the world do I get the computer to accept my enter command.

I am running XP with SP2.

What version of the game are you using? Collectors edition or one of the dos editions? The other question I have is, which enter key are you using? The main enter key or the numeric pad enter key?

In the collectors edition, the numeric keypad enter key no longer works for anything but toggling the Geoscape overlays for some very odd reason.

CTRL-M seems to work in my DOS version.

Is your version of windows and keyboard layout US-English? If not you may have some mapping problems.

I figured as much. Dosbox has some ability to remap keys for this reason, I think. I don't have details since, I don't use anything gut EN-US layout. You might just try all the CTRL keys (A-Z) and see if one works. :)
