[Bug?]Desktop Unavailability After Long Play Time


I have a very big issue to post about. I'll be playing 8-Bit Deathmatch for a while, then I need to go do something or I just fall asleep (like just earlier). When I try to exit the game, I can't click anything on my desktop! the taskbar works for a little while, but then it's disabled too. Basically the mouse still works but it isn't able to interact with anything on the screen at all. So I have to use the keyboard to open Task Manager and restart explorer.exe, which also does not work. After waiting a long time, suddenly the mouse is interactable again! This has happened every time I leave the game on for about an hour unattended (AFK)*. I have no idea why it does that, but I don't know if its really a game bug. Either way, it's a little odd. It probably doesn't even happen to other people...

*This is how you cause the issue to happen, but make sure you don't have anything else running that you need to click on at that time.

I know that the mouse doesn't appear at all if you don't open the in-game menu...
But, I'm not sure if that is indeed your issue. Sounds like a problem.

In any case, you can just quit the game whenever you want to, since it autosaves progress.
I guess the simplest solution is simply to just...not leave the game unattended. If the mouse does indeed return after some time, then it's thankfully not critical, at the very least.

I have this issue too, but when it happens I just press ctrl+alt+del (which opens the Security Options) and I click "cancel" until it works. Have you tried that?

I think it's an issue with Zandropnum, this is something I've run into.

You can fix it by opening the console or the menu and then right clicking somewhere outside the game's window.
