What happens when the bug occurs? The cheat panel disappears but the screen's still dark. You can't click anything.
What do you expect to see? I expect the darkness to go away and to have the ability to click again.

Marked as Solution for Visibility. This is still an open issue.


 

 

Moved this thread back to bugs

 

All you need to do is enter the cheat, then press ESC to get out of cheat mode and then shift-click should work as normal.

Hi @iiOmq_ItzJess 

 

moving this to tech as it appears to be a mod issue.

 

Are you using any UI mods ? Like cheat extension ? That one needs updating maybe others do to.

@iiOmq_ItzJess CC or another rmod can also be at fault. You put that you're using that.

Could you try moving your mods folder to the desktop and deleting the localthumbcache file.

@QueenOfMyshuno Merged your thread. Please try without mods.

All fixed, thank you.

I did have to delete some big mods (like mods from Sacrificial and KawaiiStacie), but I didn't use them again.

Yet again, thank you.

Command Console Bug

★★★★ Novice

Whenever I try to use the command console it freezes up and says "Unable to execute command." I can turn off the command console but can't interact with the game at all and I'll have a blackish/grey overlay on everything.  I tried disabling my mods already and ran it without mods and the problem still persists. 

 

The only way I can exit the game is via Task Manager. 

 

Anyone that knows how to fix this or has a similar problem let me know!

Cannot close out of cheats menu

★★★★ Novice

This is a new bug I have not had before. When I go to close the cheat menu, ctrl+alt+c, the cheat bar goes away but the screen stays in the cheat menu mode. Meaning I cannot click on anything. And no buttons are registering. I tried pressing Esc with the cursor still in the cheat bar when I re-launched the game, same thing. I tried typing in exit in the cheat bar when I re-laucned the game, and again nothing.

 

Again I cannot do anything, the cheat bar goes away and im stuck. I have to ctrl+alt+delete to exit the game.

 

Any suggestions? 

 

I just had an update this morning, and this just started happening.

Press ctrl-shift-c again to close the cheat console. You can also press escape.
