my keys were not correct. for some reason the add xp and add coins buttons were switched. i didn't use the key customizer and when i got to the main menu, hit F1 and started a game it said game not found. although pressing F1 again after the game started it worked fine.
Thanks for getting to it so quickly. I tend to buy my PC games depending on if y'all have nice packages to modify the game. Gives it more replay-ability, thus increasing a games value. Glad I am a member I may just buy this game
