Greetings abandonia-people. My problem is that the controls in two DOS games (One Must Fall 2097 and Sango Fighter) do not work correctly. When I use the arrows to navigate menus, it's also like I hit "Enter" at the same time. I hit "down" to go to "Tournament Play" and it selects the currently selected item on the menu.

In game play, I try to move backward, but the character kicks or punches instead. I have checked the current controls being used in the game (through much difficulty, I assure you), and I find nothing that could constitute this problem.

This same problem occurs, as stated, in two different DOS based games. I think it must be software incompatability issues. If anyone has a solution, I would be very thankful to hear it.

Please e-mail the answer or any suggestions to my email address, someEmail@gmail.com, instead of posting it on this forum.

Thanks again.

Did you try running the game(s) in DOSBox?

I remember when i installed Dos 7.10 it said something about regional settings that go with my keyboard.Maybe you messed with those settings.Anyway since i'm not very sure, i suggest you reinstall dos, and get it over with.

Maybe it's a stupid question... Have you setted correctly the controls in the games? Do the controls don't work only with these two games or with other games too?
