View Full Version : Buggy console and a bandaid for it.

I have several server guys who complain that their console will not show "status" of the server. I have seen this myself two or three times. Tonight it happened again and I was determined to figure a way around it without re-booting the game.

Symptoms: Console is mostly blank, except for the bottom right corner where some static text is placed by the console. Console works properly, but you get NO display updates on screen. It just remains blank.

Bandaid: Typing this in the console will fix it:
\clear

Maybe its a memory/buffer deal where it just gets stuck... don't know. But that has worked for the last two of my guys to get that, and myself.

So will hitting Ctrl+End. You're at the top of the buffer. Just scroll down to the bottom, or Ctrl+End to it.

Thanks! This will save me many restarts of the game, my bandaid for all that breaks. :)
