Installed PP but cannot type anything to log in Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Hey Guys,

So i decided to download PP again after being off it for years. Ive tried downloading it through steam and directly from the website. I have tried this on both my Mac Book Pro 2012 running OS Sierra Version 10.12.6 as well as my Microsoft Surface Pro. Installation works fine, however when i go to log in or create my pirate i come to the same issue on both devices in all versions. It won't let me type anything. When i try and type every time i hit a key it makes a 'thump' noise and thats it. I can't play if i can't log in :( Im not sure what my issue is. Id really like to play on my mac. If there is more details you need to help me please let me know. Im open to any ideas :)

Cheers

Do you have an international keyboard enabled - for typing in other languages on your computers? Make sure if you do, it's toggled to English when trying to create a pirate.

Good thinking, however did not fix my issue :( I tried ensuring it was on English to no avail. I also tried getting rid of my other languages besides english but to no avail.

Could it be that the characters are invisible? At some point in early access my sentences didn't show up as I typed them, but as soon as I hit enter, the sentence appeared in game. So just try to log in after inserting password and username even if the letters don't appear. Tho it is not a fix, it might still you get past the log in screen.

Good luck!
