How to get the Tilde Key for Fallout 3 Console Working (Again!)
Without which you cannot access the console in Fallout 3 (or Oblivion and Morrowind)
It drove me crazy because whenever I test my mods I must use the tilde key for the console a lot.
In fact without the tilde key for the console modding with GECK would be a nightmare for me.
Finally I found out why it doesn't work.
Microsoft's Vista has a device driver loaded called:
Microsoft eHome Infrared Transceiver
It prevents the tilde key working in Fallout 3 and Oblivion and Morrowind.
This is what you do:
For me it is the MOST annoying part of Vista when playing Oblivion, Morrowind, Fallout3 or any program or game that uses the tilde ~ key that this driver disables. It will re-install itself after every reboot. Which is really annoying - I followed a few Google links that told me how to remove MICROSOFT eHOME INFRARED TRANSCEIVER permanantly by messing with the registry and other areas of Vista but it seems to still re-install on next boot.
So, I have a shortcut to the system folder in my game shortcuts folder and go through the un-install routine every time I want to play the game.
