Hard to get out of FOW mode

Post by Lordippon » Thu May 28, 2009 12:30 pm

I have just started playing around with BRPGv1_4fWin

And when I turn on the FOW and start revealing areas, I can not get out of that mode again. The cursor stays green even after I close the FOW window.
And just stays in reveal mode. This is very irritating.

Is this a bug or is it me doing something wrong?

Check your Preferences panel. Make sure that the "When FoW panel is closed" checkbox is checked in the third Preferences screen.

Otherwise, there should be a "Cursor Mode" command in the BG button's popup menu. "Select" is what you want to revert to the standard cursor. You can also use the hotkey for this, which is [Control-1] on Windows, and [Command-1] on Macs.

If you somehow switch edit boxes, it doesn't close out FoW. Such as selecting to edit a unit while doing FoW, or hitting to bring up the Unit list. Hitting OK on edit unit ends FoW, but cancelling out of the menu's does not end FoW editing.

EDIT: If you click close on FoW, it doesn't end FoW. Only if you use the hotkey [F]
