I've played on beatthegeek for a long time and I just got a new computer. Now when I try and play, the Hot Keys will not work during gameplay! I have to click on the towers in order to put them on the map (every time), cannot pause, cannot send the next wave early, etc... Is there something I need to "allow" or turn on or unlock on my computer for them to work? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Ya that's very weird. In over a decade i've never heard of anyone having that problem. The game watches to see what characters you press on your computer and does different things based on each key. It seems for some reason your keyboard isn't sending keystrokes to the game.

A few things to try :

1.) I'm sure you tried this, but, make sure you click on the game itself (to give it focus) and see if the keys work then

2.) Make sure you have the latest flash player. Maybe your new computer has an older version installed by default.

3.) Try a few different browsers. Try playing on Chrome, IE and Firefox... maybe one of your browsers is blocking keystrokes in flash.

4.) find another flash game on the web that requires you to use the keyboard... does that game work?

I dunno... i'm kinda lost. Like i said, never seen that before.

Let me know if you have any luck
