Anyone else? I have tested shift+Z in wordpad and it is active in windows. Did a patch change/remove it?

Thanks
Jim

    It is a bug with the game's timer handling code

    The way to fix it is to open up the windows powershell, or console and enter:

    "shutdown /s /t 0"

    which reboots your computer, and resets the system timer and gets you going again

    Press F12, Settings, Hotkeys, near end of list you can find those keys. Maybe you have press the combination for changing the keyboard layout ;)

    A new bug! Only thing that increases daily...

    Send a ticket! Why does it sound like a troll advice while it should be normal to have an answer in like a week from them?!!

    Actually this bug has been around since the combat assist (bot) was introduced. It only shows up after 2^31 milliseconds (approximately 25 days) of the computer being constantly on. It also got exacerbated with Windows 7/8/10 which will often cache the system timer counter and re-apply it upon reloading, so often a system restart won't fix it, as Windows just starts counting the millisecond counter from where it left off before the reboot.

    The "shutdown /s /t 0" command forcibly sets the system millisecond timer to 0 upon rebooting, which buys you another ~25 days of trouble free botting until FW pukes again.

    The "shutdown /s /t 0" command


    So where is the difference to a normal shutdown via the normal ways ? How can i get actual cache and his content ?
    I want take a look on it ;)
