Hello everyone.

I've had some problems with Guild Wars crashing when it as released and just recently resolved the issue by updating and re-installing my graphical cards.

The game seems to be running smoothly and I haven't encountered any problems, except for the fact that when I try to use symbols in the ingame chat ( ", ', (, :, ?, etc) the whole game freezes up.This disturbs me a lot, because I do want to roleplay around at some point and be able to talk to english speaking people freely without having to talk like a total idiot.

Does anyone know what's going on or how to fix this?

I remember there being chat problems during the betas, but not now. You could have a corrupted .dat file, it wouldn't hurt to try the -repair command line first.

Other than that, do you have any weird keyboard shortcut set in Windows?

-repair command line? Please, explain. xD

And I don't have any shortcuts that I know of. I've never set any if I recall correctly.

From a topic in the official forums under tech support:
The issue you reported may be due to the use of more than one keyboard type in Windows. To resolve this, please try the following:
1. Click the “Start” button and select “Control Panel.”
2. Click “Clock, Language, and Region”
3. Click “Change keyboards or other input methods”
4. Click the “Keyboards and Languages” tab and select ’Change Keyboards."
5. Remove any non-use keyboards from the “General” tab and use only an “English (United States) keyboard service.”
Once done, try running Guild Wars 2 again

Worked for me when I had same kinda problems. :)
