  1. Mod Version: 0.2.1.9.1 Controllers Used: Irrelevant Description of Issue: If you press shift + tab to open the Steam overlay while the in-game chat is open, the game pauses (as if you pressed the pause/F1 key, not ESC). When this happens, the game becomes unresponsive to any and all input. You are unable to close the chat, nor un-pause the game, and must ALT+F4. How to reproduce: Open the in-game chat with `Y`, while stationary. Then press Shift+Tab to open the Steam overlay. Upon closing the Steam overlay, the issue will be present. Screenshots / Videos: Not necessary, however I can go and produce them if the description does not suffice.
  2. Is it me or is their reduced traction and agility/control since the update? My truck keeps wanting to slide or fall over. My buddy is having the same issue too

      hauling the doubles while having this issue?  The heavier trailers could make you seem less stable at high speeds

      I know it is frustrating but you gotta have one thing in mind, Sala: Even if there is one or more IGAs online, they are most likely busy answering to literally hundreds of in-game reports that were sent before yours. It wouldn't be so bad if over 90% of the players on EU2 didn't choose to ONLY drive back and forth between Calais and Duisburg all day. It's as if ETS2's map is extremely tiny and that is the only area available to play on. Absurdly hypocritical when later on, these same people complain that ATS's map is small.

      I just assumed that since there were well over 200 people stuck behind these two players for over an hour, that it would have been noticed by the IGA's. I haven't seen a pile up as hectic as that since europoort days. Like I understand completely and sympathise with the IGA's there's a lot to deal with, but with the vast amount of people that were stuck behind these guys, I just thought it would have been noticed.

      That's just the thing. Unless one is passing by or is alerted personally, the only way they can know what is going on is through the reports.

  4. 4 days, and my reports still haven't even been seen. I wouldn't have minded so much if it wasn't for the fact that the actions are without a doubt perma-ban worthy

      Hello @Sala296,

       

      I advise you to read the following article that answers all your questions:
      The link :

       Also know that administrators have a lot of work to do and a lot of report to deal with. Therefore, be patient.


      Cordially,

  5. Something tells me we need more admins. Two reports have sat untouched for like 3/4 days, they used to get seen within a day max.

      @Dylann /!\ Yeah, I think that would be a good idea actually. I would personally volunteer for that any day. I have so much free time and it's hard finding something to do with it haha

       

      @FirestarteR93 Tbh, I haven't looked into how many admins there are, nor how active they are, and tbh I don't actually know which class of admins cover the reports. Either way, I guess you're right, whether there are enough admins or not, it's not much good if they don't do anything (that's not me accusing admins of not doing anything, just saying IF they don't then it's pointless)

      ^Everyone with admin  permissions (All Devs, PMs, CMs, all Media, Support and FM leaders and ofcourse, all IGAs ) is able to complete reports.

       

      Also, btw: Support and Forum Mods also have access to appeals and reports for translation purposes

      It surprises me that the reports aren't handled quicker if that's the case tbh. I mean personally I would love to sit and go through them. It always amuses me to see the abysmal conduct that is shown in game. I'm hoping at some point I'll get a chance to become an admin. I love this community, as much as I am a lurker haha, and it would be awesome to give back aye

      Haha, Just popped to mind your the moderation lead, literally sounds like I just made a proposal to you to become admin. Oops :/

  6. Anyone wanna jump on for a quick convoy?

     

  7. So I just got intentionally rammed by two Skoda drivers. They were gone before I got a chance to see their names let alone /pinfo them. In sony vegas I can now see in the DVR what their usernames were, however cannot trace them anywhere. Not on the forums, nor on http://helper.mp/

    Any ideas?

      It's funny, because I tried that but to no avail. Anyways, the reports up now. Hopefully they get the perma ban they deserve. Thanks for the help :)

      Sorry to hear Sala.

       

      If I'm on later I'll try and catch you for a drive at some point.

  9.  There is something seriously wrong with the new report system. I've made a good 10-15 reports, and EVERY one of them has been rejected. The things they're being reported for would have them banned should I screen record and put it on the website. What is going on? This is ridiculous, the new system was meant to help us report, not evade reporting....

    1. Zelcrum

      The admins decide what is a good report and what not.

    2. Artical DAN

      Artical DAN

      Being rammed into isnt a good report?

      Reckless driving?

      Hacking?

       

      Only one report out of the dozens I've made went through and the guy was just lagging from high ping

      Cars overtaking @ 200KMH and causing massive pile ups and glitches on duisburg-calais? People ramming into you from jumping a red light? People BREAKING THE RULES? What good are rules if you don't enforce them? This really needs sorting team

  10. Ok so I updated the client for ETS2, and now my graphics and framerate have turned to complete and utter ****

    Any help? YouTube link coming in a few mins

      Oh my... I have no idea, try re-installing the whole MP?

      In some situations, frame stutter happens at ATS too. Probably a fix will come.

      I gave it a restart and it worked as expected afterwards. Not sure what this is, but hopefully a dev can have a look, certain circumstances might lead this to happen more frequently.

  11.  Okay, So I just got kicked (first ever kick/ban in-game), and I'm not sure what I have done wrong. The admin that kicked me just put "!" as the reason. I want to know what I've done wrong so I don't do it in future. Happened like a minute ago in Rotterdam bus station.

      When the server is really busy sometimes admins type in the wrong number since it's so busy and they are lots of reports and incidents happening at the same time.  Mistakes happen as everyone's human.  It is only a kick so you just need to reconnect :)

    3. ZuLynx

      ZuLynx

      I think it's surely a mistake too. The admin tried to type the kick command and fail. That happens, don't worries ^_^

      I know it's no biggy, but in case I did so something wrong, I don't want to do it again

  12. Press enter to login in-game

    As others have said, it really isn't a big deal, but it's just a little touch. A couple lines of code for added convenience. Every little bit helps
  13. Press enter to login in-game

    I know it isn't a big deal, but other games I play have this feature so it just feels natural. Also the cursor is first rendered in the far corner. I get it, it's no biggy, but it's no more than 2/3 lines of code that the dev could chuck in before he grabs a coffee
