Fallout 3 Discussion
Googling shows that there are people with this issue in two or three other games as well.
If you have a remote device for media control, disabling that drive seems to free up the tilde key. If you do not have a remote media device, there seems to be no reliable fix.. at least, not that I have found.
I have this same problem (Vista, regular keyboard, no remote media driver) and have not been able to resolve the issue.
I had xp media before for oblivion which all I had to do is unplug the controller but this is a vista 64 and well you can see the problem.
So if we vista users try using console its impossible?! This is a vista compatable game for christ sakes.
depending on your screen res you may not see the text it is in the bottom left corner.
lower your screen res and see if it helps it did for me
I've tried various resolutions both widescreen and 'regular', but it changes nothing.
It's clearly not affected all Vista users, but it's still very much affecting some Vista users. A quick google will give you page after page of hits about this issue for various games.
There's various things people have done to resolve this; however, no one resolution works for everyone.
I honestly have no clue what the underlying root cause of this is... but it seems to be tied to Vista and/or XP Media Edition.
But if anyone has a suggestion for a fix, I'm all ears. I'd love to get the console to function.
