Why is the keyboard symbol to the right of the screen glowing/highlighted in white? OR How do I enter my name in the high score for X (it's not taking input from my keyboard)?
The virtual keyboard is used on games that would have used keyboard specific actions on their original hardware i.e entering name on a scoreboard.
If a game uses the virtual keyboard this will be indicated by a keyboard graphic to the top right hand side of the screen.
This can be activated by:
- Pressing Tab on the keyboard (Keyboard symbol will highlight in white indicating that you can now enter text using your hardware keyboard.
- Pressing in the right analogue stick on the gamepad (Keyboard symbol will highlight in white and a visual representation of the Virtual Keyboard will appear on-screen. You can navigate the keys with the left analogue stick or directional pad on the gamepad to enter letters).
- Touching/clicking the virtual keyboard symbol to the right of the screen (Keyboard symbol will highlight in white and a visual representation of the Virtual Keyboard will appear on-screen. You can input letters by touching/clicking the appropriate letter).
Please note: not all games use all the keys on the virtual keyboard. The keys available to that game will be displayed on the keyboard.
