Mouse has a dead zone! was created by kaltern
Firstly... DAMN happy this is finally out - it is extraordinary to play WC in a FS engine... love it love it love it!

Now... my problem - I have a Logitech G9x mouse, and for some reason within the game, the mouse seems to have a deadzone, where the mouse just won't move unless I move it at speed. Accurate movements are just not possible right now.

Any ideas??

What do you mean exactly by a mouse deadzone ?

In fact there is a deadzone. When the mouse pointer is near the HUD center, the ship won't move. We need it to easily stop the ship movement.
When you move the mouse pointer from the center, the ship turning speed is proportional to the pointer position : the far it is from the center, the faster your ship will turn around.
I find the mouse very precise and, from my point of view, event more efficient than the joystick.

So, is it the way your mouse react ?

I apologise for the poor description - it isn't the easiest to explain I suppose lol

What I mean is, even in menus etc, the mouse simply will not budge unless I move it at a faster speed. If I move it slowly, it will not move at all. It is only in this game, and I have tried various mouse driver options to no avail.

Does that help?

Adjust the deadzone in the menu. That should help.

First thing I tried :) IT's odd, I can't figure out why it would do it.

Umm ok, it is now working lovely... perhaps I needed to restart the game after adjusting the deadzone.. I dunno.

Anyway, thanks for helping... I'm off to blast some Kilrathi :D

I have this problem too. In windowed mode it does not happen. Fullscreen mode it does.

Mouse pointer will not move in Fullscreen mode unless I move the mouse fast but it still seems inaccurate. This is in menus which is about as far as I've made it most of the time due to troubleshooting.

Yes, I have a joystick or two but navigating the menus with a mouse does not work properly on fullscreen mode. I have a Logitech G500.

I played with the deadzone to no avail. Kind of a strange problem no? Works fine in windowed mode but I can't get the right resolution to be big enough without some part of the window getting chopped off vertically.
