Bug? Key Combinations with activated NUMLOCK not working

Postby indyjones » 2019-5-16 @ 21:53

Hi together,

Recently I've wanted to play the old classic games Prince of Persia 1 and 2 and Runen with the current version of DosBox.
First I was pretty confused. The games were unplayable, somehow the controls didn't work correctly.

In the end I found the problem: Key Combinations (left+up, or shit+up etc.) are only working when NUMLOCK is OFF.

I'm not sure, if this a bug or somehow related to my hardware/system (Razor Keyboard on Win 10).
But I want to share this information, in case it is useful to the developers or any user.

Welcome to the forum.

That's very strange, I never encountered such an issue, and I couldn't reproduce it just now on my Win10 setup. Must be something to do with your keyboard indeed. Can you try a different keyboard?
