Mystery Problem w/Debug Mode & Ctrl+Space

Recommended Posts

For some reason, I can no longer open the in-game console in BG2 with Ctrl+Space. When I try it, nothing happens. Debug Mode is properly enabled in the .ini file and when I Ctrl+Y someone, they die. (Sorry Viconia.)

The last time I used the console it was working just fine. That was maybe 2 weeks ago. The only thing that I had changed in the mean time was adding another keyboard language layout to the OS and to rule that out as a problem I reset the keyboard layout to its default setting (English US only) just a few minutes ago, but I still can't use Ctrl+Space.

I have no idea what the problem is. ☹️

Assuming something has automagically broken itself beyond repair, is it possible to change the console opening command to something else? Like BG1's Ctrl+Tab?

The problem is that Windows is now using CTRL+SPACE to swap languages.  However, you can rebind or unbind this key sequence.  I think in the latest version of Windows 10, it's located under Settings -> Devices -> Typing -> Advanced Keyboard Settings -> Language Bar Options -> Advanced Key Settings.

I'd forgotten to mention I'm using Linux but you were right, somewhere along the process of adding the second layout the system, with all the stealth it could muster, bound the Ctrl+Space combo to switch to the previous layout.

 

Thanks. 🙂
