I've installed BF2 with CrossOver, and so far it's working. Now I like to play online but I can't login with my e-mail because of the "@"

Does anyone know how to type the "@"? Can't find it...

How do you normally type "@" and what happens when you try that? – jtbandes Mar 21 '12 at 18:19
Does it prevent you from typing it in, or what? – sudo rm -rf Mar 21 '12 at 18:21
On Mac I normaly type ALT+L but nothing happened so I tried @ on Windows -> nothing – wabepper Mar 21 '12 at 18:29

It usually depends on your keyboard. It's ⇧ Shift+2 on US keyboards, and I suspect you might have to use that in Crossover as well.

Also keep in mind that Crossover has the ability to configure your modifier keys, so you might want to try some other modifiers with L if that's what you normally do.

Thanks that worked. ALT+L don't work because I'm form Germany ;) – wabepper Mar 21 '12 at 18:41
