Mouse locked in left turn

Post by arkascha » Sat Sep 16, 2017 9:50 am

I used to play some bzflag some months ago, now wanted to pick up again but I experience a strange issue which makes playing impossible:

When doing nothing my tank drives in a close left circle. The mouse is recognized (and works perfect outside BZFlag), shots are fired, but the sterring is locked to far left. I can navigate ok using the keyboard, but that is too slow, obviously.
Deleting the settings folder does not change anything.

I fail to understand what is going on and cannot find similar reports on the internet.
Anyone got a hint for me? Anyone experienced something similar?

Thanks!

What version of BZFlag are you using? What OS? and what version of SDL?
Here's my personal website and my open source projects are available on GitHub; I work on a lot of cool things.

I tried different versions of bzflag, but typically 2.4.8.
The issue exists on a GNU/Linux system, Ubuntu-17.04@x86-64, different kernels.
I actually had two SDL libraries installed, 1.2 and 2.0. I removed 2.0 and rechecked, unormtunately no change. BZFlag is linked against 1.2.
