Work-around for iPad/Bluetooth keyboard going away (BG:EE and IWD/HOW)
This applies to both Baldur’s Gate and Ice Wind Dale on iPad/iOS. If you use a Bluetooth keyboard, you may run into an issue where the keyboard stops working in the game after a while. The game is working fine otherwise and the keyboard works fine in other apps, but not in BG/IWD. And once it gets into this state, restarting the game, disconnecting/reconnecting the keyboard won’t help.
Hopefully we can get a fix for this at some in the future, but fortunately, I have found a work-around: if you get into this state, go to a character sheet, select Customize and then edit the characters biography. In the text window, the keyboard should start working again. Once you do this, you should be able to return the game and shortcuts will once again work too.
