Unreal 2 Jump Stopped Working

Hey,

My son called me yesterday for advice saying the space bar jump function stopped working.  He's in the map called Hell, where the problem first occurred.  The jump function worked up to that point.

He loaded a save where the jump worked, and the jump function works prior to loading Hell.  He checked the Options and the Space bar is set to jump.  Also, the Advance Properties has the Space bar set to jump, as does the .ini file.  I had him check all of them to make sure.

He's using Windows 10 with 16GB RAM, and a Radion R9-380 video card with latest drivers on a new computer, Intel i7 processor.

Other then the jump function not working only in Hell, the game is working properly.  Anyone have any ideas about what could be causing this issue and how to rectify it?

Fred

Looks like this jump problem is a mystery, judging from the lack of responses.  I searched the Internet looking for clues, or just any information, that could shed some light on this issue.  Nothing!  I did find some posts where people had jump problems in Unreal Editor, but nothing from folks just playing the game as users.

I have no idea what the problem is.  Maybe it will correct itself.  I've had mysterious problems appear and then disappear to never be seen again.  We'll see.

Try a reinstall? Make sure U2.ini isn't read only when changing stuff in there too

I'll certainly consider advising son to perform a reinstall.  I'll want him to try another go at playing the game to see whether the problem persists.  He has a job taking president, and these things take time to work through.  Yeah, the .ini file isn't set to read only.

As soon as I got Win10 my Unreal2 stopped working, along with ut2004.

Try compatibility with Win7 on your main exe... or change the renderer if you can. Like, to OpenGL maybe. Old D3D apps often error out due to "device lost" on 10 unless treated with compat or switched to something else.

Sometimes a key can get assigned to more than one function.

He should go into setup and make sure the spacebar is only on jump.

I use the spacebar for alt-fire and A for jumping.

I think I managed to fix the jump and some other problems that son had while playing Unreal 2 in Windows 10.  I had him set the compatibility mode to Windows 8, and the game works better with that setting.  At least, so far.

I have no idea why the game would work better with that Windows 8 mode, but what the heck.  I like it when it works.  When I first installed Win10, the free upgrade install process removed Unreal 2, saying it was not compatible with Win10.  Even so, I reinstalled it.  It seems to work well with the compatibility mode set to Win8.
