Debug Feature
« on: 02:05 PM - 04/05/16 »
Is there a debug feature builtin to SandhawC?

I ask because every once in a while, SC decided it just wants to pull the controller a certain direction and makes the pause/break button not stop sending input to XIM Manager. The only way I can successfully get control back is alt+tab and make sure sandhawc has focus on my desktop.

For some reason, it seems like somehow the program that has focus is not SC and things just go crazy after a while.

I'm hoping I can help debug this on my computer with some debug mode? Are other people seeing this at all?

How high CPU usage is on your pc while using SC ?
SC uses low level hooks, so it doesn't need to be on the foreground to work. However foreground applications get slightly higher CPU priority, which could explain why it works better on you when it has focus.
You can try setting the CPU priority to higher manually with the Task manager.

CPU usage wasn't particularly high. I had maybe 10 Chrome tabs open, but nothing really running in any of them  - just static web pages, no videos or anything.

I will try to give SC a higher priority and see if that helps.
