Weird. I feel it's problem with Windows CMD, not woth PixivUtil, but not sure.
I have my pass in the cleartext in config.ini...

What should I do then? I don't feel comfortable with storing my password in plain text.

I also don't think it's a problem of cmd, because I could input my password just fine in the command shell without echoing it in previous versions of PixivUtil.

This is the limitation from win_unicode_console package. It is used to enable unicode (shows the japanese chars) in windows CMD.

And as @brodycas3 said, the password entered here will not stored to config.ini (only the cookie value).

Off course you can manually edit the config.ini if you want to store it (in cleartext) and saved it somewhere safe.

I see... Is the win_unicode_console package a new addition? I don't remember having this issue in previous versions.

Anyways, I'll bear with it. Better than storing a password in cleartext, at least for me.

Thanks everybody!
