Righty-o a friend is having a problem with 2142.
Load up game fine, get to first spawn screen fine, first kit selection screen sweet as, sort out kit etc: Hit the done button to spawn and the keyboard, mouse stop working won't even let you escape back to the kit or leave game!!!
Generic keyboard MX-518 mouse.

Has tried reinstall a few times even gone into the reg and deleted all the 2142 stuff their with no luck.

Any Ideas would be much appreciated, love you long time.
Short of reinstall windows I don't know.

is this internet only games? Whats his OS ?
Does CTRL ALT Del bring up option for task manager ?
Doesnt sound like OS...sounds like a keyboard conflict to me..suggest try somoene else's hardware first before doing anything else ( maybe he is playing with an english keyboard ( like me) but has the keyboard typeset to US or NZ

Check that the key assignments from the controls menu in-game are not somehow set to blanks.  Hit the default option to reset all keys to something as the key assignment file may have got corrupted.

Reinstalling the game may not fix this if it stores data about your key setup for your log in elsewhere.

If it were a USB issue the OS would also suffer.

I can not see it being a USB issue.. if it's only effected in game..

I'd do what M3RRiK has suggested as they do store the key commands in a separate controls file and those files have been know to corrupt..

tip:
make backups of those files just in case of corruption..

If it was a hardware fault it would be constant and not isolated to a single piece of gaming software -- it has to be the game. When the game is uninstalled/reinstalled the config files that sit under the "My Documents" folder are not removed.

I had to restore the 2142 folder under there in the past to fix "strange" stuff.

I hate PB as well as I had to add the exe file for PB A & B in my firewall global allowable's as it would not let PB talky to the server, so PB said no gamey on the sever.
So yeah I hate my firewall, PB and the Romans. I wish EA had a deal going with Steam. For as far as I'm aware VAC has only been broken once by hackers.

Ted. ;D

And whats wrong with the Romans I ask? pax romana is only the basis of western society....and any decent language starts with Latin.

did have somthing similer once it was caused by not having 2142 as the main focus

try running the game in windowd mode

ohter than that uninstall the game making sure the game folder is gone and reinstall

:-* ta for all input- after uninstalling(more than once) i fnally did the regedit thing.
seems there's lots of sneaky 2142 folders hidden away in there.
all working, panic over.
now all i need is time to play the damn game.

woah !! , this problem just happened to me ....

i traced it back to this process

PID: 1224 ( 780) C:\WINDOWS\ATKKBService.exe

its someothing to do with ASUS gamer app, so if you are using a ASUS vid card and this happens, try killing this process and it should fix it ..

back to the titan ;D
