Is your Tilde key functioning? ie it could be a dirty or stuck switch.

To test the key, open a Word document and try typing the Tilde. If it shows on the screen then your keyboard is OK, if not then the key is dirty or stuck and you will probably need a new keyboard.

If the key is working, then . . . . I dunno.

    I search the '' Perfect MMORPG''what is?

    Definition: MMORPG is an acronym for Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game. These are role-playing games where thousands of gamers play online in a virtual and persistent environment on the Internet.
    Usage: If you have a natural tan, you probably aren't a hardcore MMORPG player.

    A Massively-Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game. An online game that is very similar to windows 95 with ICQ and a fantasy background. Double-click everywhere to kill an endless stream of monsters in a fantasy world and gain new powers. Do this for hours on end while chatting with someone named "Drizzt23" or "MikethePike" about where in Korea or France or Alabama you live and what was on TV last night. Contrary to the name, these games do not feature role-playing, so don't worry. Perfect for people who are too slow for Counter-Strike, and with no friends or imagination for role-playing. A: "Caleb played 34 hours of Lineage 2 this weekend!"
    B: "Wow, how many levels did he gain?"
    A: "That was amazing, he gained 4 levels!! Unfortunately, he got a cramp in his mouse-finger and had to quit."
    B: "Awesome, he's a true role-player!"

    Describe your how to change right handed in cs Problem

    Usually the default is the right hand. But either way, you need to bring up the console which can be accessed by pressing the tilde key(~) and if its not on you will need to go to Options>Keyboard>Advanced and turn it on. Once you press the tilde key and the console is open type this, lefthand 1, to switch to left hand or, lefthand 0, to switch to right hand.

    Gateway Keyboard kb-0532, tilde key does not work in fallout 3

    If it is not working only in specific games, then the issue is most likely with the game itself, or some settings therein. Your keyboard does not require a driver for the key to work. The generic drivers that come built-in with Vista should make any keyboard to work. A keyboard driver is only needed to program the hot keys and play/volume etc. functions.

    Try the tilde key in Notepad or MS Word. If it works there, then the issue is with the game. You will have to refer to the game manual to find out how to program the key.

    If, however, the key does not work in Notepad / Word either, then your keyboard is most likely defective. Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

    P.S. – I would greatly appreciate a FixYa! rating if the solution I provided fixed or helped you resolve your problem.

    Thank you for using FIXYA!
