God mode does not work (Windows 7 x64)

Post by brujitaki »

Hello friends of Arohk!

It's my first post here and I hope somebody can help me to solve the problem. So, my pc has windows 7 x64 and I installed today the Order of the flame and the patch 445 as well. Everything worked perfect and I was so excited that I would play again after so many years this lovely game. But.... there is a problem with the god mode.. I can't enable it. I have followed all the steps (I hold down "shift" when starting Drakan and when loads the Riot Engine Options I check developers mode etc.), but when the game starts and I press the backslash key (\) nothing happens... I am not enable to talk, like I never pressed the \. In the past (when I had windows xp) I could enable god mode. Why not now??

So, does anyone have an idea how to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance,
Marina

P.S.: Sorry for my bad English.. I hope I made you understand what I want. :roll:

Hi there, try the # key or ` as it may be different on some language keyboards.

Hi, thanks a lot for your answer.
Unfortunately, nothing happens with the keys ` and #. I have tried almost everything. I don't have any idea why it doesn't work..... My keyboard is english. Thanks again.

Just checked on my English keyboard the console command prompt key is ` (above tab)

Did you change the controls to something other than the default?

Thank you so much for your answer.. I have tried this key as well (`), but nothing happens again. To be honest I have tried a lot possible keys, but nothing works.. I didn't change the controls, because I wanted to be sure that everything would be in order.. But the same again..... I don't have any idea what is going on.. I have played this game many times in the past and I had used developers mode, because the game can be a little bit hard with a lot of enemies.. Now, with Windows 7 I can't.. I hope we can find a solution.. Thank you very much..

Is English the only layout you have installed? This may sound silly to ask, but I once had three of them at a time (Ru/En-Ir/De), so I had to switch the layout in game to make the chat actually work. Maybe you had English as a default layout on XP, and now it moved to a secondary language, meaning you have to alt+shift / ctrl+shift first =)
