Next Window feature randomly skips client windows

Is there anything setup wrong that results in the "Next Window" feature just randomly jumping 2, 3, 8 windows forward? These numbers are not specific. It skips randomly.

It would be great if pressing Ctrl+N would advance the focus to the very next game client, every time.

Thanks.

First, I would try switching to a Hotkey that doesn't use a modifier. If that doesn't change anything, then, with the Character Set running, open up the Inner Space Console (right-click tray icon > console > click on it to bring it to the front) and type "sessions" (without the quotes) to see how many sessions are running.

I changed the hotkey to NumberPad_9. The "Next Window" function continued to be erratic skipping. It doesn't seem to matter which keys are chosen for the hotkey to the "Next Window" function.

The console reads that there are 19 sessions running. There are actually 18 character clients running. The leftover session is likely the permanent home slot reserved for Slot 1?

Other than that, what else could be causing the random skipping of the "Next Window" feature?

What is the other process in the list? That sounds like the problem here. Given that information, I can issue a fix and/or provide a workaround

No

Attached are 2 screenies of the Inner Space Console showing the 18 character clients and the remaining 19th session.

Re: Next Window feature randomly skips client windows

It is erratically skipping client windows again. The sessions command confirms that there are only 18 sessions running, one for each character client window.

One other odd behavior that I haven't mentioned yet is that sometimes, the main Slot 1 window will be minimized when I press the "Next Window" hotkey. All other thumbnails will still be in the correct positions. Where the Slot 1 window used to be, now I can see the underlying desktop and background windows.
