|0003766||AI War||[All Projects] Bug - UI||Aug 22, 2011 4:27 pm||Jan 25, 2012 1:39 pm|
|Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0003766: Chat issues in multiplayer|
|Description||When playing multiplayer, I would constantly hit enter to chat, start typing and about 85% of the time the chat window would "lose" focus (kinda like an instant messenger would do if you somehow clicked on the desktop while in the middle of typing) and i would have to click on it to continue typing (pretty annoying!).|
This is on a PC, Windows 7 64 bitties.

|I've noticed this happening, too. Same OS, same version, though I think I've seen it in some previous (5.0+) versions too.|

|Same in the one game I played, and partner was complaining about the same thing.|

|Had/have this happen to me as I play games with others. It can be quite a bother if you type fast only to find half of what you put down didn't seem to register.|

I can confirm this is still happening in 5.020. A buddy and I both were playing tonight and we both experienced this same issue.
Chat seems to lose focus when other parts of the UI update, including when previous chat messages disappear after they have displayed for their regular amount of time.
Even though this doesn't cause the game to crash, I'd call this a major problem since it seriously affects communication in multiplayer games.
More info about my setup: Windows 7, 64-bit. Full screen, 1920x1200. Steam version.

Can also confirm that me and all my co-op partners are having this issue. Chat window keeps losing focus. We've learned to rely on ventrilo instead.
No idea what the root cause appears to be though. Will try to find a common symptom.

XP, 32-bit, windowed here, Steam version.
Deozaan's observation works here -- chat loses focus whenever the message list updates.
I'm also getting a strange issue where the text box is only partially highlighted sometimes -- typing puts text in the box, but the text is a duller white, and doesn't automatically scroll when the text is too long and extends to the right.
This bug seems to happen sporadically but does persist past saving and loading. It seems to only happen in planet view and not galactic view.
The bug only happens with particular camera positions, but is otherwise repeatable -- when you reach a particular region of camera zoom and position, the text box starts acting weirdly, but when you move away either by zooming in/out or moving around, the text box acts normally again. Returning to the old camera position makes the bug happen again.
