In eve.

I have three separate clients, ESC does not work in any of them. Key is working fine, i can ctrl+shift+esc from inside the game and i get the task manager normally.

What gives?

lol Renan, way to go Big smile

Jeez well, only item of interest I can think of is - What is your keyboard code set to ? Ie, English, English US, Spanish etc?
My Keyboard is stock-standard US English and my International setting is English-UK.
All I can come up with, sorry O_O

Cheers.

Its set to PT-BR but it was working fine before this morning.

Also, i know that there is a shortcut that changes keyboard layout for the client.. think its ctrl+somearrowkey. I know that because i have stumbled upon it several times in the past and made my "รง" key give ";". But afaik keyboard layout does not affect modifier keys.

Ctrl+I and Ctrl+B work as normal (italic, bold) but Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V no longer work. I can press "enter" to chat on the chat windows, but i cannot press "enter" to login after entering password.

One more thing to try - disable Voice if you have it enabled and restart your client(s)

Failing which, check out the discussion here :- http://www.eveonline.com/ingameboard.asp?a=topic&threadID=1456529

when in doubt, reboot.

if it doesn't work, reformat.

if it doesn't work, bash computer open with a sledgehammer.
