I am not able to reproduce this with the svn version of TDM. It may (accidently) have been fixed already.

I can confirm this one.

Holding the "G" key (spyglass key) down causes a flickering effect.

This feature is designed to be toggled,though, and not for press and hold, or did I miss something?

Still, some player may accidentally hold the key down I suppose.

Pretty low priority.

Even with the desire to fix this, we'd have to make spyglass part of the native
command code instead of using the "inventory_use" system (not an easy task).

Suspended until someone motivated steps forward.

I have tested this again with 2.07 and the weird thing is that using the "inventory_use" key does not give the flickering, only the dedicated "spyglass" key. Maybe this can help in solving this...

Please post your Darkmod.cfg and which keys you are using to invoke the spyglass in each scenario.

Unless you are saying that you are provoking "inventory_use spyglass" from the console?

If that's the case, it's an invalid replication since the issue is that holding the key down keeps invoking that console call over and over again.

I have the spyglass bound to G and I uploaded my config.
