started around Jan or Feb, it's only a problem if i don't check before match (going into testing grounds to make sure it is working or not), . . the fix, is just running the repair tool.

there is not a consistent time, like so many matches, before it just stops, there could be, but I'm not counting how many matches I play after the fix. happens .

very inconvenient, when I first log in and go into a match and can only use number pad to go forward

Simply noting the other post you had made (googled it) but you never responded to that thread. For others visiting this thread, OP had previously noted it was happening with a total of 3 games at the time, and he had to run the Repair tool to fix the issue.


Quote

Which Windows?
View Update History to see if Windows updated Keyboard software/driver
Brand/model Keyboard
Specific software installed for keyboard?
Uninstall and reinstall newest keyboard drivers.
Input language set to US-English

By default Windows 10 is setup to download/install drivers /shudders...

Also, do you play in Full Screen or a Windowed mode? Multiple key presses may be causing game to temp lose focus or multiple key presses (or a previous key press not being released) causing system to not recognize the individual key stroke but as part of a multi-key /combination key stroke.

Also tilt keyboard and smack/clear any possible debris that might be residing under the key.


Hitting a combination of keys that changes input language, then MWO (or the other games) does not recognise W key as W key. The OP of the thread below was able to replicate it in the Training/Proving grounds.
