Gang:

I finally got me-self a larger PC with LOTSA memory, so after I downloaded a HUGE Il2 Sturmovik mod, I turned to FSO. I got the KNOSSOS and everything remotely interesting was downloaded; on top of that it seems that everything works...except for one thing:

The CHEATS! Sure when I type out the codeword: www.freespace2.com it says 'cheats activated' but when I tried to use a cheat, (K to kill; shift I to make a targeted ship invincible; W and shift W to give us all full weapons loads etc) nothing seemed to work.
Has the been a change or does the cheat not work with the  Knossos device?

TIA

You need to press ^ while pressing K etc like you have to while entering the code.

Actually, it's the key with the ` and ~ that is probably at the top left of your keyboard.

So 'apostrophe' and 'random squiggle' AND press the Kill, Invincible, Unlimited Ammo buttons?

No. Just the key to the left of '1' at the top left of your keyboard. The tilde key.

Then combine that with a K, I, shift-I, whatever.

e: by 'no' I mean that 'apostrophe' and 'random squiggle' are not two different keys you need to press. Just one.

The one in blue.
If you don't have Knossos, you need it.

“There was a button," Holden said. "I pushed it."
"Jesus Christ. That really is how you go through life, isn't it?”

 
Yeah, you need that blue key combined with the cheat codes. Think of how would it work if you didn't have to use that additional button. For example, the K key is usually binded for targeting turrets and W is one of your shield controls. You would be killing a ship every time you target a turret :P.

I was supposed to make a short presentation about basics of optical fibers and here I am, listening to Eurobeat while reading about quantum cryptography.

 
Actually, Nick figured out which button to use...

BUENO! I figured that was the one, but thanks for confirming. Lets see how they work out!
