Keyboard problem with euo

Postby Shino » Sat Jan 20, 2018 9:12 pm

I have this problem (only when playing euo)

its like i would have some virtual sticky keys only on euo, when i move around and press ctrl to attack or shift to use some skill and then release ctrl or shift key to move again, without releasing arrowkeys it just continues to stand still and tries to attack like i would still have ctrl/shift held down.

i have tried everything i can come up with, enabled and disabled sticky keys from windows settings over and over again. tried to download new drivers for my keyboard.

and this problem is with both of my computers when i have windows 10 installed.

Disabled num lock?
Sounds like lag though. How's your internet connection?

You could try running EUO in compability mode for earlier versions of windows. Try the other compability settings too.

I had this problem previously, and others as well when it comes to shortcuts. I think several people reported similar problems around the windows 10 update. I never found a way around it.

that's normal and has been like that for ages. just after you cast your special or spell or whatever you're doing, release keys and just keep going HAM

it shouldn't happen tho, and it doesn't happen for me (win 7)

you should be able to walk up to a rat, be blocked by it, keep holding down the dir key the whole time, tap (and release) ctrl, and after a split sec the rat dies and you keep walking - your arrow key was depressed the whole time

(the num lock thing afaik only affects shift+arrows under certain circumstances)


try this (a mod I put in euo some time ago for someone)

close euo
edit client.cfg, paste this line
Code: Select all
old_ctrl_func=1

save
start euo
report back

nogo with the code, still same.

and this never happened to me with windows 7 just like you mentioned. only on windows 10

the reason this is a huge problem for me is because my EUO laptop with windows 7 broke some time ago :(

(and yeah, i had only euo installed on that laptop and used it only to play euo)

I attempted this too without any luck. The way the CTRL key sticks for me isnt as big of a deal as the other problems. I can't remember off the top of my head what all the issues I had were, but I know that:
In the inventory when I do alt enter to remove all, it instead filters to jewelry.
no buttons seem to allow me to switch between skill panels.
one or more of the Ctrl shift alt combos don't work as shortcuts for fkeys.

I'll play around more when I have time, but I remember it being bad enough it was a huge inconvenience to play

There are a few ways to turn off the Windows 10 sticky keys thing:

Settings -> Ease of Access -> Keyboard -> Sticky Keys (several options that can be turned off)

More alternate solutions here:

For me the sticky keys are disabled. Things in game still don't work like they should. Even keys that aren't related to stickies.

its not sticky keys, they work differently, you need to press the button again to release it, this just somehow jams it untill i release all keys and dont even need to touch ctrl or shift after that again

GOOD NEWS :aus:

I was easily able to replicate the sticky ctrl on a win10 laptop!
which meant I had a go at fixing it - tiny change and it seems to work for me.

try this and report back
only works on NG server
