Default A Nightmare on Elm Street "Escape Button Problem"

Hi,

I have just joined your community and I am need of help right at the start.
The problem is I am running "A Nightmare on Elm Street" using dosbox and everything works perfectly well except the "Escape" Button. Without the escape button I cannot open up the menu, nor can I save my game. I have tried to use different keyboard settings such as "keyb uk" but still everything is ok except the "Esc" button. Would anyone try to run this game and help me to open up to menu so that I could save games.

Any help is appreciated

Thanks

With Ctrl+F1 you can start the keymapper and map single keys.

You download the archive. You extract the archive. You drag'n'drop the DREAM.EXE onto your DOSBox shortcut. You choose a graphics mode. You press 4. You choose whether to play with mouse. You begin a new game. You search and find Freddy's house. You are in the house. You press Escape.

No, I was just asking how to make the escape button work because I am pretty sure that it normally doesn't

Does your Escape key work anywhere else?

I only played till I was in the house, so I could try to open the menu with Escape.
