Right after leaving the docks you have to chop away vegetation. Although I press the right keyboard key (asdw or arrow) according to the icon appearing, I only get red crosses and hence I'm stuck. The same principle did work in the very first scene of the game.
I see no apparent slowdown/lag of the game.
I've tried without effect:
-Lowering the display settings to 1024x768 with all low/off
-Plug in a regular PS2 connected keyboard instead of a USB one
Some system specs:
AMD Phenom X6 1090T processor
AMD Radeon 6700 Series video card
ASUS Sabretooth motherboard
Suggestions to solve this are highly appreciated.
