it still seems like it occasionally breaks - upon starting the game selection works fine, but at some point it stops working and doesn’t fix itself until I restart the game
I haven’t gotten any screen recordings of it, but I did get this screenshot from last time it happened
after this point, I was unable to select again until a restart. this was on the beta version (been using that so I can test CI3U and CI5U translations, exporting them once finished), but I’ve had the issue on the stable version too, this instance happened while translating while playing through CI5U, and I’m playing through Proton (perhaps that’s the cause? I’ll see if I can get the same issue running the game natively on Windows)
okay, did some more testing and I think I figured out what’s going on - selection breaks if the player opens the translation menu in the middle of a mission, without pausing it beforehand. It resumes functioning if the player closes it, pauses the mission, then reopens it, but it always breaks if opened during an unpaused mission. Tested it and it happens across both Windows and Linux, and tried on two different computers and it happens on both, so def not a bug on my end or Proton-related
Ugh. Acknowledged, but it strangely only happens in the release build of the game, but not the debug. This is going to be a pain to fix – on the list. As a workaround, pause the game first whenever you need to copy-paste.
