I bought GSB through Steam about 12 months ago, played it for a little while and then got distracted by other things and uninstalled it. On a whim I purchased the Swarm DLC today and reinstalled GSB (through Steam), the game loads, the few ship designs I saved are still there (so obviously Steam’s idea of an uninstall is not that thorough it seems) but the problem I have having is that the keyboard is completely unresponsive. Totally.
The mouse works fine, the sound is great, and I can play the first mission no worries, but anywhere where I can type something in (like saving a ship design) the game refuses to see the keyboard and just acts like there isn’t one attached (which is to say, does nothing). The keyboard is working fine, if I press Ctrl-Esc whilst in game I get back into Windows no problem, just no response from GSB.
And that is weird because when I first installed it it DID work fine. I have just tried it in windowed mode, with the same results, Alt-Tab works, pressing the window key brings up the start menu etc, but GSB responses to nothing.
Any ideas? I apologise if this has been answered, I did look through the common problems sticky, and did a few searches for the word keyboard, but came up with nothing.
Windows 7 x64
GSB reports a v1.62 in the top right corner windowed mode
ATI 5850, Cataylst drivers 13.1
Logitech Setpoint 6.51 (latest - just checked that).
Any help would be most appreciated.
