Esc key opens console window

★★★ Novice

Anyone else had the issue where the esc key acts as the tilde key and opens the console window?

@2Leg1tx2Qu1t Can you try repairing the game via the Origin library and seeing if this continues?

@EA_Illium Ive spoken to support, they said they think it's some sort of bug. They have no answers or fixes for this issue. Other than to report it and hope it gets fixed.

@2Leg1tx2Qu1t Good to hear we found a cause, the check did switching out the keyboard stop the issues? If so what type of keyboard was causing the issue?

The fact they cannot fix such a small issue that effects people trying to change keybinds, I now can't use a jet because of this issue, you're telling me they can make a complicated game in 2023 without fixing an issue where you press a button and a console shows up? It's pretty pathetic but I shouldn't expect different from EA.

It's probably not that they can't fix the issue, but that it's a very rare problem that they might not have been aware of while this game was still being supported with patches.
