A few annoying problems.

Post by DonDon » Tue Jan 23, 2007 4:41 pm

I recently found BZFlag, and i love it.

Although i have a few problems.

When i open the windowed version, my tank always drifts the the left, despite me not pressing anything.

And when on the full screen version i cannot press back and right together.

Now, my best guess would be a rubbish keyboard/mouse, so i am just asking to see if anything can be resolved.

Thanks.

Do you have a joystick or gamepad plugged in? I've seen drift from miscalibrated joysticks before, and the constant change of input can cause other problems.

Nope, just a mouse and a keyboard. i thought at first that it maybe my mouse moving slightly, so i unplugged it and it still happened.

On a side note, my mouse is reversed in window mode, any fix to this?

Thats is odd....even with a joystick how is it possible for your tank to strafe? That seems a bit of of sorts.

They didn't say it strafed. It just drifts to the left (turns slightly).

It can't be the joystick if the settings say 'mouse controls' Try re-installing it and if it happens again you know it is a problem with either your comp or keyboard and not BZ
