Subnautica - Keyboard Not Working

Keyboard suddenly doesn't work?

So, I believe Subnautica is not a supported program but recently its actually been working relatively perfectly. If I alt-tab a few too many times it messes up but thats easily avoided by just not alt-tabbing while in game.

As of yesterday, however, keyboard input has stopped working. The mouse is present and functioning and my keyboard works outside of the game with no issues but in game, nothing. I can't even exit the game properly once in a save because I can't open the exit menu. (I also tried a new game just in case my old save was messed up somehow.)

I'm running it through Steam in a 2.3-staging drive with steam overlay and such turned off, if that makes any difference (don't see why it would though, the game worked fine the day before yesterday and I've not changed anything).

To further clarify, I've actually just realised that its all of Steam that is not recognizing my keyboard input. A cursory search for that issue said to go into the wine's graphics options and uncheck the box allowing window manager control and that's solved the issue. No idea still why it suddenly became a problem though.

Funny you say that because I just made a script for this game last night. It creates 64-bit wineprefix since I'm not sure if Subnautica is 64bit only. The only thing I found necessary to instal is vcrun2013. No --force-d3dx9 in steam setting either. And no keyboard/mouse problems (even after alt-tabing).

This guide is oriented more towards using the wine installed in your system rather than using the one provided by POL. Also a lot of steps there are unnecesseary such as installing corefonts. Just write winetricks steam and every dependency (including disabling steam overlay) will be automaticly installed. Also try to use more stable versions of wine.
