I haven’t gotten this 100% reproduceable because there’s a bit of timing to it, but I do have a lead on this.
It’s not related to menus as I am able to do this with alt+tabbing too.
I believe it has to do with taking context away from the game while you are mid-tool use.
- Swing your hammer by holding down the mouse button.
- Switch context by alt+tabbing or hitting a menu key. (may need to be mid animation)
- Release the mouse button while the menu is up.
- Hold down the mouse button again and press the key to close the menu.
edit: it may simply be doable by holding down the tool use button before exiting a menu.
Your other hand will now be auto attacking like a possessed fiend.
I have a very confusing mouse button setup on account of being left handed and using a left handed mouse. But others have reported this enough that I’m confident it’s not related to my button setup. Still, if someone could reproduce using those steps it would help to verify the problem.
My bug finders fee is the 33 durability I’ve lost on my light source + auto harvest chisel while testing this
