    Hi, if I don't have a numpad, is there another way to select the character?

    hello dears thanks for sharing such old lovely game
    you can cast magic via pressing enter + Left shift in case of individual player .
    Have a great day .

    Which key for the magic special? Seriously, the worst thing about this game are the controls - I'm not even sure you can cast the magical spell, I think I already ran through the entire keyboard and nothing works.

    Hello John, to confirm the selection of a character, you have to press key [5] on the numpad.

    How do you select a character once you've made it past the mode selection screen? Which key do you press to confirm your selection?
