My aim keeps moving down

Postby Marscaleb » Fri May 12, 2017 4:55 am

I am having a peculiar (but also intermittant) problem. Every now and then when I'm playing UT, my aim is constantly pulling down. If I leave the mouse alone for a few seconds I will be looking at my feet.
I have no idea what is causing this. I have several computers with UT installed on it, but none of them are doing this. I've tried using a different mouse, but it still does it. It's a laptop and so it has a built-in touchpad, but I can't find any settings from the touchpad that are doing anything weird. Also, I don't have problems with the mouse cursor in the UI moving down, just the player aim. I also don't have this problem in other FPS games. And to make matters worse, it doesn't always do it. Some time it works just fine.

Has anyone had problems with this? What could be causing it, and how do I fix it?

Check the gamepad settings in the ini

make it deadzone true but not the UV or vertical one (have to look sorry)

I've heard about this couple of times and still don't know what caused it. I also had this issue as well but I don't know how I fixed it.

1 thing that came to mind was... is your screen saver is turned on?

My other thoughts are the Windows updates that are causing it...

Edit: Oh wow... let me know if Red_Fist's post work.

I checked all my ini files but couldn't find the word "gamepad" in any of them. I'm really not sure what to look for; I'd need some more information.

Check in unrealtournament.ini. It's in there.

Had a similar issue YEARS ago except it was the opposite - I'd look straight up to the sky.
It drove me mad!

I recall it was an issue/settings with the renderer I was using - don't recall if it was D3D or OpenGl.

What are you using? Maybe post the settings of it here?

That sounds absurd but I'll give it a try.

Only problem is I will never know if it is fixed or not unless it happens again, as it wasn't exactly happening every time.
