Shortcut Keys

Postby lockdown643 » Tue Apr 20, 2010 4:41 am

I am having problems with adjusting my game speed settings. When I push "minus" on my keyboard, the box pops up to show the game speed is 0.5. But I cannot increase that game speed. I have a laptop that doesnt have a Num pad and I think thats part of the problem because I have to hit "Shift" and "Equal/Plus" button to give it the command of the plus sign, but it does not increase the game speed. How can I increase my game speed or change the keyboard shortcut. I have the Enhanced Edition also if that makes a difference.

After continuing to do some research, that's what I discovered but it still does not increase the game speed. Is it some how capped at 0.5? Can I change the hot key to test it or something?

By default, the game speed can be set anywhere from 0.5 to 2.5 in increments of 0.5.

I'm not sure why you can't increase above 0.5. That's very unusual. Are you using a non-US keyboard or a computer that thinks you're using one? That could cause a keystroke problem, I suppose.

It is also possible that you may have a bad install. You can try uninstalling and reinstalling the game, if everything else fails.

I think I read about the problem before, that the + doesn't work on laptops...

Found this thread here:

Old Forum Thread

Thank you for telling me about the old forum thread! That is a good temporary solution to the problem. In the Cotn.ini file changing "Fullscreen 1" to be "Fullscreen 0" put the game in windowed mode and allows me to use the onscreen keyboard and it allows me to speed it up now! :D If anyone else can find out a permanent fix that would be great. Otherwise this temporary fix works pretty well for me. Thanks!
