First hello everyone.I have a problem in game.I have read how to speed up game speed and there are 2 possible ways by using Page up/Page down and if you are using laptop that do not have those buttons you have to hold Fn button and Up/Down arrows to control speed.None of these work for me.I have tried every single button and yet nothing happens.If someone please can help me i will be thankful.

Fn + up/down arrows is common page up/down button in many laptops. I guess that you have another type of keyboard in your laptop.

To solve the problem I can see several ways:

  • Find page up/down function keys on your keyboard (with function button pressed). If you can't maybe Internet knows? Please let us know which laptop you have - we will help you.
  • If your laptop has numeric keyboard (usually on the right of keyboard, or fn+ p ... ] ... < ... / buttons) you can try scroll lock mode and those keys (there is page up/down on 9 and 3).
  • Use external keyboard with page up/down keys.
  • Also you can try to send page up/down key signal by pressing another shortcut and configuring operating system somehow (for experts only?).
  • Hmm... instead of configuring operating system you can write a program which will catch every single button pressed and translate if needed to page up/down on your choice.

The last two points are half jokes, so don't worry about it face-smile.png . If you will fail with previous ones, let us know which laptop you have and we will try to help you.

You can also play the game by using a joystick or key. Here you will find the specific key for proper movement of the players.
