I installed 1.82 recently and experience a crazy problem:
On my scanner, the symbols indicating ships, asteroids etc. sometimes flicker / wobble. All of them. As if my scanner could not decide if they belong to this pixle or the next. Very irritating.
I use the standard HUD and as ambience OXPs only BGS and Zyglos cinematic Sky and Nebula.

Are you using the ECM when this happens?
The ECM now temporarily affects the scanner when used.

This looks like ECM activation. The effect is emulating an EM pulse messing up with your scanner for a few seconds and is deliberate.

Ah. Thanks. Yes, I hit E almost automatically, whenever I kill a target, since most often, a missile is launched shortly before a ship dies. I'll see, if this happenes only when I use the ECM, if it's a new feature, the answer is most probably "yes".

Edit: Yes. Confirmed.

NPCs using their ECM cause it too.
