Non-English Keyboards


Recommended Posts

We made some improvements that allow German, French, Italian and Spanish (European) keyboards to be recognized in the game keymapper. If you have any problems with those characters in the keymapper or chat on XP or Vista, please try the following:

This information is also on the wiki:



Go to Control Panel-> Regional and Language Options -> Languages -> Details -> Advanced

Check the box for Compatibility Configuration.

This allows all programs to use the full keyboard and should display the special characters for your selected language.


Vista has different options and appears to handle non-English keyboards well. It simply uses whatever is selected as your Default Input Language. That is set at:

Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options -> Keyboards and Languages -> Change Keyboards

This tells Vista to use whatever keyboard you have selected for the selected language.

We have a plan to integrate support for more keyboards and languages in future versions.
