I got an email from Logius alerting me to an error that can occur while attempting to enter cheats into Medieval 2: Total War. For users with Windows XP Media Center Edition who make use of the remote control device, the console can become inaccessible. In order to re-enable access, they must disconnect their remote control receiver (at either end). Many thanks to
Logius for passing that information on.
