I'm running Mac OS 10.12.6 and the game runs but the keyboard does not work in the game. So you cannot rename characters, do a quicksave or respond to dialog elements by hitting the numbers. The game will have to played as though it was the tablet version clicking everything. 


Yes I have tried launching it with the terminal and the same problem arises, keyboard is non functional. 


I also tend to rely on the keyboard since in many situations placing your party or characters precisely can require the arrow keys as the space you want to select is pretty much impossible to select.

And don't answer 'arrows' because there haven't been arrows since Exile. Which leaves thrown weapons as the outlier missile weapon which can run out (and are bloody heavy in Av4). So either give us arrows again or make the bows available or cut it out. I miss arrows of light for eg. 


Yes, I've been playing these for a LOOONG time.

For future reference, please don't spam a bunch of short comments that could have easily been combined into one post. Also, the place for a "general complaint" is it's own thread, not a string of off-topic comments in the FAQ/guide thread.

Thank you, be nice to the fluffy turtles, and have a pleasant day.
