Movement

Post by Ginevra » October 7th, 2018, 5:27 pm

I have BT4 (obviously) and the game loads fine and all . . .but. . . .I can only go forward, backward and left and right. Cannot turn for ANY reason. Am I missing something or is this a bug? Trying to navigate the marketplace backward is gawdawful. Help, please? Any legit responses are welcome.

Do you have a bog-standard mouse, or some esoteric device? Because that's how you're supposed to turn, and I assume your mouse works fine elsewhere else I don't see how you managed to run the game :p

I have a Logitech Trackman mouse. It's nothing super special nor out of the ordinary. I have tried to use mouse look. The wheel does exactly what it's supposed to outside the game . . . just not in it. I've tried everything I can possibly think of to rectify the issue and have had no luck at all.

sounds weird, cause the mouse is what you use to 'turn' in the game. At least until legacy mode is released, where I asume there will be a key available for 'turn right' and 'turn left'.

That's a trackball mouse, isn't it? Something like this maybe: https://www.amazon.fr/Logitech-Trackman ... B001DQY9AW

I'm not familiar with how these work so I can't really help, but obviously something in the game engine doesn't like them. If I were you I'd open a ticket with inxile support letting them know your hardware problems (I don't think they've tested the game with a trackball device so they probably don't know there's an issue).

In the meantime if you have a spare "regular" mouse and can use it the game should work.
