Chat bug

Post by NobleWizard » Fri Oct 19, 2018 9:23 pm

So I entered my first multiplayer task just now and I when I sent a message the frequency wouldn't go away. So after spending about 20 minutes trying to start the task, I concluded that the bug was preventing me from starting. Trying to look up how to sort out the issue on my phone while trying to stay up is a bit of a handful.

Is there a fix or, was it pilot error on my part?

So looking at the flight log, it seems I couldn't start the task because I was too high as I had the wrong altimeter setting QFE and not QNH. I have now unassigned a key to chat to prevent any future possible incidents. However, it is still a problem that needs addressing.

Something is stealing focus and giving it back, but that's enough to mess up the chat function. I've nearly given up on using chat because of that.

You could run this app to help find out what is stealing focus:

If you find something, please post it.

I had previously found that the nVidia GeForce Experience is a focus stealer. I also found a DNS utility I have, when it would decide to check if it needs updating, would steal focus if the underlying service wasn't running.

I've just given up on using chat and unassigned it to make sure I don't accidentaly use it.
