Keyboard issues: AltGr

Post by tweetygwee » 29 Oct 2008 12:42

I use Alt Gr for jump in custom levels, but ever since I got a new PC with Vista, the key acts as ctrl as well, so Lara will grab or shoot! The other Alt is normal, but I find it awkward to use when playing. Thinking it might be the keyboard, I tried another one but it has the same issue. This is very annoying and I'd appreciate any help.

Thanks :)

I always use "Left" Alt, but I've tried AltGr key with my laptop and you are right : it's just as though you were pressing both Alt and Ctrl keys simultaneously. In fact, it's kinda normal since Alt Gr is supposed to combine these two keys.

A solution (not the ideal one I admit) : Jump action is more reactive than Shooting. Therefore, you can press smoothly on the key to jump without shooting. It worked for me.

A better solution : Download this software to remap your Alt Gr key.

Remap your Alt Gr key to Left Alt key, reboot your computer, and it might work.

Good luck !
