I just downloaded and installed the free and legal GTA2 on my vista laptop without problem. When I start the game and see the main menu, however, I can't click on anything! I can go up and down with the arrows and quit by pressing ESC, but that's all... it's impossible to select play, options or exit.
I have absolutely no clue what to do or what's causing this. I hate that.
I hope you guys can pass me some sweet knowledge on this! Thanks!
Also tried to run it as an administrator. Didn't help.
I've played GTA2 before on a vista pc, and had no problems back then.
And my ENTER is as healthy as an ENTER can be... the strange thing is I can use ENTER to skip the intro movie etc but when I'm in the main menu it doesn't do anything anymore. I can still use the arrows and ESC, and the music is playing, so the game didn't freeze or something. Weird.
The GTA2 menu just writes registry keys, so it could be replaced easily enough. I could make a simple launcher if you need it.
There are two enter keys on normal keyboards but they send different scancodes and the one to the right of the numeric keypad won't work with GTA2. I think your enter key is sending the wrong scancode and might need to be remapped.
You could try using KeyTweak to remap the scancode.
28 = Normal enter key 57372 = Numeric keypad enter key

I don't think that's the problem either... in KeyTweak my ENTER-key is applied to ENTER, but it still doesn't work properly. And when I change the controls in GTA Manager, the new 'ENTER-button' doesn't work either, so I don't think anything needs to be remapped.
What did you say about a simple launcher you could create?
@Wojtek, I can't work out from this thread how you fixed it... Please can you - or anyone else! - let me know? I tried downloading the launcher mentioned, but (Win7) tells me "MSCOMCTL.OCX" is missing.
I used to play GTA 1 constantly but never got GTA2, and it's so frustrating to be so close to playing it, and yet so far
