I'm having another problem. I use a hp laptop to play Spartan Strike, and the keyboard doesn't work to run the game. I can't move my character, pause the game or do anything with my keyboard until I close the game.

Please help!
Lo que hice yo hice es conectar otro teclado y ya funciona, el teclado de la laptop y el que conectamos, tambiem podemos conectar nuestro control de xbox.

A mi igual me paso no se cual sea el problema.
I too was having this issue, but have a workaround. My computer's main keyboard is a PS/2 variety. Once I plugged in my USB Logitech K400, it worked fine. I don't think it has to be wireless, but there is something with PS/2 keyboards not working.
Use USB KEYBOARD
For me to play it on PC i had to plug in my wired 360 controller.
Bump, similar issue here. Windows Store Version of the game. The game does not detect my Keyboard and Mouse, I have to use the Touch Screen on my laptop to play. Keyboard and Mouse works everywhere else than Spartan Strike.

I found a way to make the game detect my mouse by deactivating the touch screen on my laptop, but the game still doesn't detect my keyboard.
I have the same problem, my keyboard (PS / 2 standard keyboard) does not work in the game. Windows 10 Desktop Pro
Yup same for me. On two laptops upgraded to Windows 10, no keyboard input, only mouse.
Dell XPS 17 and a Lenovo.
Works on Windows 8.1 xps12.
Same issue here. Lenovo T520i running windows 10. I also can't figure out how to change the movement keys from WASD to the up, down, left and right arrow buttons since I'm left handed.
maybe is your pc!

que pasa con este juego
Hi guys.

I think I may have stumbled across something which made the keyboard and mouse work for me. I have a MSI g72 dominator laptop only a month old. I upgraded from windows 8 to windows 10. Purchased spartan strike from steam. Everyone with laptops seem to be having issues with the keyboard with this game, with a large portion of them with laptops and windows 10. So I searched and found this article http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/older-programs-compatible-version-windows its about making older programs compatible with windows 10. So step by step this is what I did:

1. Searched in windows for Run programs made for previous versions of Windows (the location for this is in your control panel.
2. Once opened then I clicked next and selected STEAM from the list of programs that you can select and then clicked next.
3. Then I selected use try recommended settings.
4. Once those settings had been applied I closed STEAM and then clicked test program. (You cant go any further unless you test the program, which you need to do because the solution I found comes later.) (Still again after the test no luck with spartan strike.)
5. So next window I click No, try again using different settings.
6. What problems did you experience I clicked the top box The program worked in earlier versions of Windows but won't install or run now. Then click next.
7. Which version of Windows did this program work on before? I selected Windows 8, then clicked next.
8. Of course like before test the program and see if the keyboard or mouse works.
9. Of course for me it still didn't work so I clicked so I clicked next and then, No, try again using different settings.
10 This time I clicked the bottom box, I can't see my problem listed. And then next window I clicked windows 8 and then next.
11.Then it asks what display problems do you experience? I clicked again the bottom box, I can't see my problem listed and then next.
12. Again test the program, and holy -Yoink- omfg it worked, I've never known a windows troubleshooter to do so much magic work but fk me there's always first time.
13. Then I saved the settings, blazed 1 and enjoyed the game :) . happy days and I hope it works for you all.

I am having the same issue, and would like Microsoft to resolve the issue.
I have the same issue.

Im in a Sony Vaio Laptop, the game dnt recognice my keyboard.

I just bought the game, it would be nice if i can play it.
any update to this?
This game won't work me. Anyone else.FK
Is anyone having trouble with this program signing in? I have played the program for more than a month and now suddenly it won't sign in. I have the sign in issue now for more than 1 week. It tells me to sign in on the Xbox Web site, which I do, but to no avail. Other Microsoft games on my laptop Solitaire etc. sign in with the same log-in automatically. This program does not give you away to manually sign in. I have uninstalled and reinstalled without success. Help!!
It is now signing in again. I don't know why, but I am playing again.... :)
OK, I only paid $5 for the game for my windows 10, and the keyboard wont work at all. ALL of my peripherals are USB, and I can't get any movement from the keyboard at all, nothing works. Not gonna b***h about $5, but it is pretty misleading for this game to be sold for windows, and I have to jump through a dozen hoops for it to work. I am not gonna change my mouse or keyboard for something that works ONLY for this game. Sorry Microsoft, but you have lost me forever after ripping me off!
UPDATE: Possible solution! After fighting with this for a few days it seems to be working again for me. I believe what did it is a complete wipe/uninstall of Splashtop. If you have at any point had Splashtop installed on your computer, uninstall it and run this tool from the splashtop support forums:

CleanUpInstallerSRC.zip

I vaguely remember a few years ago running into a similar strange compatibility problem with Splashtop existing on a system. Please let us know if this fix works!
