QuoteI'm having a very strange and annoying issue with the Name Input Processing screen when attempting to name characters that renders the name screen relatively unuseable. What's happening is that when the name entry screen pops up, the game won't allow me to select certain letters and it will just skip over them. In addition, when I'm on any letter that I can actually get to, when I hit over, instead of going to the next letter, it skips to its lowercase counterpart and I have to hit over again to get to the next letter. So I'm basically only able to select about a quarter of the alphabet and thus can't even name my hero. I don't know if this is a common issue or not but I did some searching around the forums and read the FAQ before posting this topic. Does anyone know of any kind of fix, patch, or script I can use to fix this? I'm doing this project as a collaboration with my friend and it's kinda stopped me dead in my tracks after getting a lot of different things set up. : /I'll add this now in case this is the source of the problem: I am running Blizzard's ABS and Stormtronics-CMS. I don't think the ABS has anything to do with it as I've used scripts provided in its help file to disable it completely before the event starts.Please, if anyone knows of a way around this problem I would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you.

If not, you can immediately rule out a problem with the editor. 2) Have you tried removing the above mentioned scripts and tested it?3) Are you using any other scripts? If so, you need to list them all, and in the same order that they are in the editor.4) Is this the only time that you get this weird bug? For example, when navigating menus, does the cursor sometimes move twice, or require two presses just to get it to move?

I am an unsure what would cause it do that, but I would pick on the face graphic script first. I would first start with mirroring script and face graphic scripts. Simply comment them out one at a time and see if the problem persists. They shouldn't cause any crashes by being removed, nor would it be hard. Also, Blizz's scripts have been tried and tested by countless people without any problem like this because. He goes out of the way to maintain compatibility, while I know as a fact that the author of mirroring script did not. I don't know the exact reason without testing it myself, but I have a hunch that it is one/both of the first scripts causing the problem.
