Xp Gold Edition
Posted 23 November 2006 - 10:15 AM
I’ve installed the XP-Version of good old UFO. The game starts probably, using either one of the exe-Files.
But if I start a new game it's impossible to enter a base name. There is only a (very) fast flushing cursor, but no reaction the any keyboard input. (Neither letters nor Enter/ESC..).
Same problem if I load a saved game.
The game WORKS PROBABLY if I start Windows in "save mode". Of course the sound doesn’t work then.
I tried the game on another PC. There no problem occurs.
How can I use the game on my PC?
(WIN XP HOME)
Thanks for any help

What sort of keyboard are you using? I have this very same problem as well on my slightly older PC, but UFO CE works fine on my XP machine.
edit: Just to clarify, I'm wondering if your keyboard is either serial, ps/2 or USB. I don't think this should be the cause of the problem, but it doesn't hurt to cover all the bases.

I can try to plug in a normal Keyboard. Maybe this works...
But why does it work in safe mode?
I will now try differnt Keyboard drivers.

It's a problem with: IXPLORE.EXE
If I close the process the game runs probably.
Maybe anybody knows the reason?
Do you really have IXPLORE.EXE or is it IEXPLORE.EXE?
if you have IXPLORE.EXE This is an undesirable program.
