Pressing X and 2 while holding shift doesn't do anything?



  • I’ve seen other people using voice commands while running, but I can’t do it, nor can I switch to my secondary while running. Frankly, not being able to scream for help or laugh while running is ruining the game for me. :P
    Edit: Holding shift and w*



  • Most older keyboards won’t register more than 3 key presses at the same time. Could this be the case with your keyboard?



  • It’s just a “USB Multimedia Keyboard” that came with my Dell XPS 8300 that I got in November of 2011. So, I wouldn’t say it’s old, unless you mean an older model? It says the Driver Date for the keyboard is 6/21/2006 if that helps at all? I really don’t know…



  • It’s weird though because I can press c while running, and do the battlecry, and I can press z for those voice commands(except for 2), but I can’t use x or 2. It’s really strange.



  • Did you conclude that it is not the “max number of key presses at once” issue as suggested by PedroFromHell? It’s not only limited to older hardware, it’s really a ‘feature’ of cheap hardware :)

    Is there any software running in the background that may intercept that as a hotkey shortcut for something?



  • @ReMixx:

    I would say no because of my last post, but…then again, considering the keyboard came with the computer, it probably is cheap.

    Not that I know of.

    So, I guess it’s a keyboard issue and not a game issue then? :(

    Let’s just make sure that I understand this correctly.

    While holding shift (sprinting), you CANNOT bring up the X voice over menu.

    While holding shift (sprinting), you CAN bring up the Z voice over menu.

    While holding shift (sprinting), you CANNOT hit the “2” key after bringing up the Z voice over menu.

    That’s how I am interpreting it. Correct?



  • That’s correct. I also can’t bring out my secondary while running, but C(the battlecry while running) works too.



  • @Ranulf:

    That’s correct. I also can’t bring out my secondary while running, but C(the battlecry while running) works too.

    So these DON’T work:

    • Shift + W + X

    • Shift + W + 2

    And these DO work:

    • Shift + W + Z

    • Shift + W + C

    • Shift + W + 1

    Hmmm let’s just reset all keybinds back to default (video settings will be reset too) by deleting the Chivalry directory in Documents\My Games.



  • I did that, but it still didn’t make the keys work while running.



  • @Ranulf:

    I did that, but it still didn’t make the keys work while running.

    Any way to borrow another keyboard to test it?



  • It would be older than the one I’m currently using.

    Give it a try for kicks and giggles.
