This very problem is related to the Alt-Tab.

Steps to reproduce the bug:

- Open the console
- Hit Alt and Tab or your Windows key
- Go back to the game

By then you will notice the presence of the mouse cursor on the screen.

Now if you start scrolling your mouse wheel, either the client will crash or random and strange letters / sentences will appear in the console.



There may be a solution to the problem: allow the user to scroll the console, therefore the bug will be turned into a cool feature.

PS: it also applies if you pause the game.

The cursor appeared for me, but the game didn't crash nor did I get any strange messages.

I do remember this from back in the day, but didn't happen to me for a long while. Guess this will take several people with different setups to fully rule this out.

I think this got fixed with the reworking of the DirectX/Direct3D code.

Hi!

Oh this is indeed an old (ex)bug I think, because it's been a while since I last encountered it.

A late thanks wouldn't hurt anyway so thanks. Smile
