<img src=“http://www.rpgclassics.com/staff/tenchimaru/td.gif”> Just ignore that FF:CC comment, and you’ve got a pretty good idea of what I’m doing right now. Argh. When I destroyed my mousepad, I also kinda blew up my keyboard. Not really a problem, since keyboards are like 2 bucks a piece. However, for some reason, every keyboard I hook up to this comp doesn’t work correctly now. Everything is fine, except that if I hold down a button (arrow keys, backspace, thiiiiiiiissssss) it goes really, really, really slow. Of course this is a bitch to type with, so I turn to you guys. Anyone think they know what happened? I guess something could have shorted inside the computer, but everything else seems perfectly fine, and no soda touched the case. Well, not any more than 2 drops at least. Solutions would also rock, since otherwise I have to send in my comp for repairs, and I really can’t afford that right now.

Hey, at least you didn’t nerve-gas your hard drive like I did. >_>;

Well, that sucks. I mean, I don’t have a Gamecube and would probably have never played the game, but it still looked interesting.

Wow, about a week before my 16th birthday!

Hilarious how many people didn’t actually read the thread ALREADY. :slight_smile:

And it’s still on for December in Europe, har

Maybe it’s just a configuration problem. Try a few minor tweaks like turning off filter keys and other things on the keyboard config in control panel.

<img src=“http://www.rpgclassics.com/staff/tenchimaru/td.gif”> I seriously doubt that it’s a software problem, considering the fact that everything worked fine until I dumped a gallon of soda over my keyboard.

You got other ones, so they shouldn’t all be having hardware problems unless you’re big into the Murphy Law.

Are the ones you’ve tried Plug & Play ones?

Short in the keyboard may have caused some damage to the plug if it spread enough.

<img src=“http://www.rpgclassics.com/staff/tenchimaru/td.gif”> I figure it’s a hardware problem with the computer itself, not the keyboards. And yes, they are.

Well, there’s two things you could do to check if it’s hard or soft. Try the keyboard you got now in some other computer; check the autoexec.bat for any instructions concerning the keyboard. If the thing works in other machine and there’s nothing in autoexec, then I’ll bet the plug’s really gone.

And keep liquid things far from your computer. You never know when accidents like the one you had will happen.

edit: if You’re using XP, there’s a virtual keyboard somewhere. It’s a program that shows a keyboard in the screen and you type with your mouse. Might help you if you have a fast hand. I use it sometimes.

Major Spills on the Keyboard
When coffee or drinks with sugar in them spill on the keyboard, they create a sticky mess. The best solution to stay up and running is to simply replace the keyboard. You can try to save the keyboard by thoroughly rinsing it in running water, such as a bathroom shower. Make sure the keyboard dries thoroughly before you use it. Let it dry for two days on its own, or less if you set it out in the sun or in front of a fan.

…and I doth quote from mine own PC textbook. I kid you not. =P

It’s doomed to be delayed in Europe too. Europe getting a game before the USA is unspeakable.

Try to obtain a usb keyboard to see if that has the same problems, it could be the ps/2 port.

I would care but A) FFCC looks awful and B) Even if you get it first we in NA might get a better version. Like how Europe got FFX international.

Try a USB Keyboard - could be a hosed PS/2 Port as said above =)

Told you, guess what has been delayed to 5th of March.

Feh, I don’t have a Gamecube, so I needen’t worry about FFCC.

And TD, from the sound of it, it’s a hardware problem. I don’t do well with those, but get that keyboard fixed, or suffer my unending wrath. lightning flashes

Try installing the newest relevant drivers. Not going to do any harm, at least.
