Hi

A few years ago I asked about a mysterious console that appeared when I started the BBO app. Nobody seemed to know what it was

Now it's there for BBO and Funbridge apps

Who knows what it is. A bit of debug code or something more sinister

Possum

PS come to think of it, does anyone else ever feel there is more in the BBO web client than just scripts and stuff. It has a creepy feel too, as if someone is in there. Sorry for being someone who feels and senses stuff that may not be there. But if you wanted to spy on some or maybe all the world's most powerful people....

If there was someone in there, surely he would know to only show me tournaments I am authorized to play :)

What do you mean by a "console"?

If seen BBO pop up plenty of additional windows, but it feels as if ou are referencing something different.
Any chance that you could provide a screen shot?

Do you mean the little yellow box that reminds you how much money you have left in your account so that you can top it up if you need to?

Most likely isn't related to BBO, but something to do with your device itself. A screenshot would definitely help.

Apropos of nothing - I can't help wondering why an Australian

I will try. It's like a little debug network activity monitor thingy that pops at the bottom of the apps for a fraction of second when starting up. I managed to get one a few years ago and sent it to Diana I think. I managed to get rid of it but now it's back


If its ephemeral, then your best best is probably going to be to use some kind of video capture to grab your enter screen and then launch the app...

Well, I can say confidently that it doesn't appear for me, so there's definitely *something* different about your setup; it could well be innocuous rather than malicious. But there's no way to dig further without more specific details - if you can't figure out an image, even some exact text (word-for-word, as much as possible) rather than a generic 'network, memory details' may well be sufficient to debug with.

I don't know how to insert an image except via my web sites.

https://imgur.com/upload then paste the resulting link.

This is a feature of 'OPPO Game Space' - specifically the Hyper Boost aspect - which is built specifically into OPPO phones and not others in order to optimise running games.
