Hi, thanks to all who helped me last time. I upgraded my v. 1.0 TM to 1.6 using the patch and then found that my mouse and keyboard don't work properly with it anymore. Has this problem arisen before?

I have a Logitech MX700 mouse and wireless keyboard.

Ive not seen this problem myself yet... is the mouse working ok in the menu environment, or is it in the game itself ?

The mouse and even the keyboard work fine in the menu environment. In the game, the mouse works correctly, but the keyboard doesn't work well at all. Also, when i start a game and my tank spawns, it's stuck in a perpetual left turn. I need to try and find a normal ps2 keyboard to try and troubleshoot this a bit.

Any thoughts/ideas are most welcome. :-)


Just for reference, the mouse and keyboard i have are detailed here.

do you have a joystick/gamepad installed as well?

No, i don't have a joystick or gamepad. This keyboard and mouse worked absolutely fine just yesterday with the old TM v1.0. I just tried the game again with a PS2 style keyboard and mouse, and it worked... although it did lockup on me after playing for awhile. Not sure what this means.

Have had the same problem(s) several times in the past - each time I had to either reinstall the hardware from withing control panel and reboot and/or do a completely new install of TM. Good Luck. JT

You shouldn't have to. It's probably just a quirk...

Thanks, 666. If i decide to join one of your servers, i'll probably be called Chimaera, since i only made this name because the bb wouldn't let me login, heh.

Also, i've been meaning to play this for a couple years now, so judging from the screenshots, i think i'll be doing a bit of practising first. ;-)
