Numeric keys on keyboard don't work.

Post by aleph1 » Tue Aug 11, 2009 2:32 am

Whenever I try to perform an action that requires selecting a member from my party (talk for example) the keyboard keys move me. I am using an official Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad, and the same holds true if I use the number keys on the top of the keyboard or the keypad.

Please help! I haven't played Ultima III since I was a pre-teen and I am hoping to get my fix!

"Who will Transact-" for me is answerable with the numbers at the top of the keyboard, the numeric keyboard, or clicking on a character with the mouse. I initiated the transactions by both clicking on characters and by using the T key, with three different models of external Apple keyboards, and two different MacBook keyboards.

The above tests were on 10.5.8, though I haven't heard of anything like this on previous systems either. Could you let us know your OS X version, processor type (Intel vs. PPC), and version of Ultima III?
