Interaction with the world - "e" not working (SOLVED)

Many players on different servers cant use “e” when interacting with npcs / loot / resources.

If you experience this issue here how to fix it:

  • Close the game.
  • Delete the “savedata” folder in %appdata%/AGS/New World/ (copy that string in File Explorer) - Or C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\AGS\New World (replace UserName in the path)
  • Log back in and play with default key binding.
  • See if it fixes the issue.
  • (My folder was at …\AppData\Roaming\AGS\New World)

Things that dont work:

  • Relogin
  • Close the game and login
  • Check integrity of steam
  • Changing keybinds
  • Unequip and equip tools
  • Get killed and respawn

Apologies for my english.


Indeed.Changing keybinds doesn’t work either.


Same problem, now trying reconnect, 450+ in queue, good start


think I got this at the tutorial then. Nice. I’m stuck at Captain Aldous Thorpe the dude that teaches u how to equip stuff and eat.


Now it seems queue is stuck. 30 min at the same position

Occurred during relocation of starting area unable to accept quests, gather or mine, not replicated as friend performed similar journey both DC at server maintenance he can continue I am stuck.

I found out that e works for building your campfire, but if you try to access the camp or rest (“t”) also does not work

Same here and according to chat a lot more are impacted. Relogging did not help.

What u were doing before the server restarded?
Have u been disconected while on a interaction? I was mining some stone and i belive thats why, as if the server belive we are still using the e and thats why we cant interact

also T doenst work for me either
i was middle in a fight at disconnecting

i belive its better to choose another server at this point. This bug affects just some of us and does not seem to be a priority. You will lose less time making a new char and w8ting the queue

Same problem here
Styx EU
Can’t use all interface actions like map/char/journal.
Happens after the server maintenance
Not tried a relog, because of the 7000 queue :confused:

I had that issue with “Enter”, I couldn’t open the chat without hitting esc and clicking the window after maintenance / crashing.

I was able to resolve the issue just hitting ALT once.
ALT apparently randomly gets stuck to a key, some guy was having trouble walking because it was using ALT input constantly after login.

Let me know if it helps.

Got 1k people ahead, ill give feedback once i get in

Same problem. E was not working. I restarted the game. Then E was working but impossible tu use my weapons…

So I disconnected again and then Im 1920 for 1 hour in queue of Bakhu server.

WTF ???

I tried every possible combination. Nothing works

Have you tried @Asuna solution?

yes, nothing works

is their a reload ui command like in wow?
I also can’t switch weapons with drag and drop.
But I can double click the items to equip them
