First of all thank you for making a console with Quake mode - I've been looking for one ever since Quake first came out and never found one that was usable. When Powershell came out and offered support for custom hosts it seemed like a perfect opportunity to make a Quake mode console. Again I couldn't find one made by anyone else so I'd resigned myself to having to do it. Now that you've done it I won't have to :D

As far as I'm concerned, with PoshConsole the only real problem in Quake mode is that you have to use Win+OemTilde rather than just OemTilde on it's own like in Quake. I realise that you can't do that with the hotkey API's, but I know it is possible using a low-level keyboard hook.

Actually I don't think there's anything preventing you from doing that now, did you try it? It's just not very useful -- especially since the OemTilde ` character is the escape character in PowerShell...

Yeah I tried that, it didn't work

I forgot that character was used in Powershell, guess that idea's out the window
