Running Ubuntu 18.04 and Wine 5.0.2.
In the debug console the cursor doesn't show in the correct position.
In the image the cursor is actually at the end of the line of text but shows a few characters back.
Anyone got any idea why this is happening? It is quite distracting!

Location: On the other side of the screen.

 I’ve run into it before, it’s a font issue. The game advances the cursor by specific amount based on how many characters have been typed (based on the assumption that the font required is monospace), but if you don’t have the necessary font, it doesn’t line up correctly. I don’t remember which font you need, but I’ll update once I sort it out.

EDIT: Found it: Lucida Console.

Of all the things I’ve lost in life, I miss my mind the least. (I’m having a lot more fun without it!)

Thank you. Working fine now. Took a while, as with everything Ubuntu!
