Consoles closes

Added by Lammert almost 3 years ago

Upgraded to 2.75

I open console with `
As soon as I press a key, the console closes again.
There is no way I can type stuff in console

It works on my side - we can type text and use it.

but why not use "^" as before - the "`" makes some problems on German keyboards as it is a very special key and the console open or not - we must try it often.

SDL changed significantly the way the console key works, but that isn’t new with 2.75.

There is a patch (see #937), but it came out too late to be included in the last release. It has also some caveat when '^' is on the original console key location (like German keyboards), so I am not sure if that would be actually useful to you.

Great - thanks for this info - our map developer was looking for such way to use it for making our own maps

RE: Consoles closes - Added by Lammert almost 3 years ago

Thnx for the answers.

After reading this, I found out that:

I open console with ` (button next to 1)
Then I have to press shift+6 (makes ^)
Then I can type in console
Then I press shift+6 again
Then I press ` again

If I don’t do shift+6 after I am done, then the console opens with a press on a random key.

Very strange...

FYI there are bindings for "toggleconsole" in the config:

bind ` "toggleconsole"
bind ~ "toggleconsole"

Thnx for the answer, but it didnt fix my problem.
The problem I described still remains

Also I noticed some other binds disappeared
On the numpad there are some binds missing.

As far as I can see you did do an upgrade. What happens with a fresh/clean install? Give us some more info about your system ....

RE: Consoles closes - Added by Lammert almost 3 years ago

Fresh install gives same problem.
I am using Win7

What more info you need about the system?

PS: at our community someone else reported loss of binds on numpad too. Our configs are good

What is your keyboard layout? ... qwerty ?

We fixed a bug related to numpad recently. If this issue happens only when numlock is enabled, then the issue is already fixed in master.

Binds don’t seem to work at all, with our without numpad enabled
