Keyboard not working in Wonderland Adventures?

Post by jacksonsamouse » Tue Jun 09, 2020 3:07 pm

I've been wanting to replay the first adventures game, but for some reason it isn't registering my inputs. The settings say "Mouse/Keyboard", so it isn't that. The keyboard works just fine in the other 2 adventures games.

I have no idea what the cause of this bug is, but if I remember correctly, it can be fixed by navigating to:
C:\Users\YourNameHere\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Wonderland Adventures
and then deleting the file named "global.wdf". I believe that this file contains all of the game's settings for the Options menu.
After that, simply relaunch the game and change the setting back to Mouse/Keyboard again.


If you cannot find the file, it may also be located in the directory where you installed the game, or possibly somewhere in:
C:\Users\YourNameHere\AppData\Local\Midnight Synergy\

I would suggest you to first follow jdl's suggestion above.
If it doesn't work, check problem #5 here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=27741

Well, it worked for a bit. I uninstalled the game and reinstalled it, that fixed it. But when I started the game a second time everything was back to how it was before i uninstalled. Even my old saves were back. Very strange.

Have you installed to Program Files folder?
As I said, follow jdl's suggestion and if it doesn't work, follow mine.

Good to know it fixed for you. I think I should update my troubleshooting topic with that VirtualStore problem jdl mentioned...

Good luck replaying the game. This was the game that introduced me to Wonderland, and along with Secret Worlds gives me the most nostalgia.
