Hi, I tried what the guy said in a previous post (pasted post below this) what to do to fix the the ~ key, but I couldn't find the ITECIR Infrared Driver interfering in my device manager. I have no idea what vista I am using , let me know where to look and then I'll let you know which one, and I have never had such a stubborn game to cheat with. I have also tried hacking it, to my basic knowledge, but so far nothing. Any help would be appreciated, Would really like to cheat with this game already. Thanks

[EDIT] Also, does is it the resolution of the game that you change or the resolution of your desktop that you change? My resolution in game is 1280x800 (desktop is also the same). Then with the device manager I found a Micrsoft eHome Infrared Transceiver, I don't think it is the device I need to uninstall,but any thoughts about it? Thanks again

I did some snooping around on the net, and I found a fix to get the console to appear for Vista users.


Apparently, Vista comes with drivers for an IR receiver. These drivers, even if you don't have a remote, interfere with the console somehow.

This post was taken from the NotebookReviews forum.


It's the ITECIR Infrared Driver interfering. You have to uninstall the driver in order to use the console in games. It's in the device manager under Human Interface Devices.


I just tried it out and the console appeared.

Ya, pretty much uninstall anything that has anything to do with IR devices. Hopefully it will solve your problem.

What is IR? Infrared?

[Edit] The only thing that has an IR in it, for my device manager under Human interface device, is ENE CIR receiver. Any thoughts about this one?

It's not only for vista sir. Xp is quiet the same!
Maybe the next update will fix it! It, and the major game crashes!

Yes, IR stands for Infrared. That is your IR device's diver, uninstalling/disabling it should hopefully solve your problem.

For any of you still having this problem, This has also been confirmed as a solution, heck, it even worked for me!


If you use the Microsoft eHome remote/receiver (official media centre remote and USB receiver) you'll notice under your device manager you have a new device named Microsoft eHome MCIR 109 Keyboard; this is the cause of the tilde key not working. It also affects your plus, minus, parenthesis, hash, @, and slash keys remapping them to different functions. (some are even weird Kanji characters)

Solution is as follows and will not affect the functionality of your Media Centre remote:

1. Go into Device Manager -> Keyboards.

2. Right-click "Microsoft eHome MCIR 109 Keyboard", choose "Update Driver" ("Update Driver Software" on Vista).

3. Choose "Browse my computer for software" (XP users tell it not to install automatically and say you'll specify the location, then when it asks you where you would like it to search for drivers choose the option to choose from a list) then "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer".

4. Make sure "show compatible hardware" is checked, then select "HID-compliant device" and click next. Click any remaining "OK" or "Finish" buttons after Windows has installed the driver.
