keyboard problems with v0.7.0-369


Recommended Posts




Trying to play bg1:totsc with v0.7.0-369 on windows 7x64, and none of the character keys on the keyboard work when trying to input a character name, which has the unfortunate effect of stopping me from starting a new game


Whenever the game enters a text entry field, an error shows in the log:


[sDL 1.2 Driver/WARNING]: SDL 1.2 doesn't support a software keyboard


Keyboard entry however works fine in 0.6.6 (but neither of the sound plugins are included)


cfg file with all commented lines stripped:


GameName=Baldur's Gate
AudioDriver = openal
GUIEnhancements = 0
GamePath=C:\games (x86)\Black Isle\Baldur's Gate
CD1=C:\games (x86)\Black Isle\Baldur's Gate
CD2=C:\games (x86)\Black Isle\Baldur's Gate
CD3=C:\games (x86)\Black Isle\Baldur's Gate
CD4=C:\games (x86)\Black Isle\Baldur's Gate
CD5=C:\games (x86)\Black Isle\Baldur's Gate
CD6=C:\games (x86)\Black Isle\Baldur's Gate


The final option UseSoftKeyboard appears to have no effect

And if a press ctrl+space when at a text entry field, the entry marker duplicates itself to the top left of the screen


The only mods that I can currently remember installing are the widescreen mod for 1024*768



Script/log window for 0.7.0-369 doesn't have coloured text, while 0.6.6 does, the coloured text makes it alot easier to read.

Not sure if this was a conscious choice on your part, or my pc just being its usual broken self

I'm not sure if this helps, but these are all the lines that end up in the log whenever i click the "name" button in the char creation screen, after turning UseSoftKeyboard to 0.

The bottom line is the only Error that i have seen after a quick look through the log.

as to the log:


The one on the left is 0.7.0, the one on the right is 0.6.6

text entry appers to work now (build 374)

however, the text in the field looks several pixels too low: (sorry the cursor isn't too well defined, had to save as jpg to keep size down...)



and my console still isn't coloured


Thanks for fixing the text entry though
