Stuck on menu screen, game not recognizing any input
Hello,

I FINALLY got to installing this gem after a busy holiday season, and I'm having an issue where the game loads, gets to the main menu, the music is pumping, and....no input method registers. I am unable to select any main menu options, there is no cursor displayed, and neither the usb keyboard nor the xbox360 wired usb controller I am attempting to use will register at all.

I am running:
Win 7 x64
Core i5
8GB RAM
ATI 4650 Video Card

I should also note that I am not seeing any of the aforementioned DirectX errors. The only error I ever see happens when I attempt to Alt-Ctrl-Delete out of the game. windows 7 tells me that the game has stopped working and shuts down.

I've waited 10 years to play some permutation of this project. I take no issue with waiting a tad more. Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Joe

are your drivers up to date? try drivereasy.com to check if they are.
also, are you connected via a KVM? (a switch that lets you work with 2 computers with one set of controllers and 1 screen)
lastly gave you tried reinstalling the game?

Hello,

Thanks for the prompt replay.
I've re-installed the game 4-5 times now and I'm not using a KVM switch.

I'll definitely check the driver issue when I get home from work, thanks.

Gak! That sucks! We've never encountered that issue before so I don't know what I could possibly suggest as a fix. If you just can't get it running past the menu screen shoot me a private message and I'll make sure you get your money back in full Smile

Undertaker666, thank you for helping out!

No problem, also you might want to install the latest dx redist anyway. it might be a missing dll for the keyboard or mouse.

RE: Stuck on menu screen, game not recognizing any input
I realize this is probably pretty obvious, so I apologize for asking, but the simplest things are often easiest to overlook. When you say you have no cursor, you mean that you have no mouse cursor, correct? Right now, PWX's menus can only be navigated by mouse.
Feel like a treasure game on a rainy day.

Thanks for all the replies.

Gaijin, no mouse cursor. Installed the DirectX deal and I'm still having issues.

Dave, I appreciate the offer but, as you know, I've been around and interested in this project for many years, and I'm here to ride it out.
I have no doubt this will get sorted out in no time.

Yeah, this issue is bugging the hell out of me and I'd love to investigate it until we can solve it. So you see no mouse cursor on the menu screen OR do you see it but can't move it?
