Help! My gun is jammed!
« on: July 19, 2004, 10:08:29 am »

Unfortunately I have aproblem that downloading the bug fixer does not help; the ordinary fire buetton does not work. I  looked at that script that runs "in the background" (the one that tells you which music file is being played) but it doesn't mention anything if I hit a key, whether the special attack key (which still works) or the regular attack key is pressed.

As a result, it's really hard to win with ships like the Mycon, seeing how it can't fire.

I'm running Windows 98 and have already confirmed that my keyboard distinguishes from the left and right shift buttons.

Does anyone else have this problem?

Well the only thing I can think of  is resetting your keys imput to the game. To do that go to keys.cfg and open it with notepad  - Then change the keys around........

BTW the location of Keys is under application data for windows XP - I am not sure if it is same for windows 98.

I don't know why this doesn't work. Unfortunately, there's not much I can do to find out from here.
Changing the keys is a work-around. To complement FalconMWC's reply: on Windows 98, the file is usually
C:\Windows\Application Data\uqm\keys.conf
or
C:\Windows\Profiles\YourName\Application Data\uqm\keys.conf
if you have setup Windows for multiple users.

You guys are the best!

I don't know why I had to change the keys, but right now I don't really care. It worked. I'm going to change fire to insert and home to special (or maybe home and page up) since it's still pretty convenient.

Thanks again!
