HUD of available options disappears, doesn't allow moves

Postby mrt1212 » 20 March 2012, 05:28

I was playing a game a few minutes ago where everything was going fine and then bam, my HUD disappeared and I was unable to make any moves with my players. Dialogue menus didn't show up (for rerolls etc) Is this a known error?

I have heard of it happening before. Don't remember if there was suspicions about some keyboard command causing it, though.

Did you press any keys or anything (like, was chatting), or using keyboard shortcuts?

Press ALT+W or ALT+Z, it's used to hide the GUI.

I was Alt-Tabbing in and out of the game while chatting with someone on Steam.

It is entirely probably that I hit Alt-Z by accident while doing this. The weirdest part though was I couldn't move any of my players after hiding the HUD - I tried to pick up a halfling to toss him but every time I clicked on the Treeman the little "throw teammate" icon didn't appear and I was unable to select anyone else on the pitch, or at least I don't think I was able to (I clicked on my other treeman, and one or two halflings.)

Alt-W on a normal keyboard and ALT-Z on an AZERTY one, or is it the other way around?

But good to know. :)

Z on a normal keyboard and W on qwerty :P

Now that I think about it, the chatbox was open when I hit Alt-Z, as that would explain why I couldn't move my players.

Ha, happened to me as well. I was sure it was some sort of bug, but good to know that it is as simple as hitting Alt + W
