Vertical mouse sensitivity too high

Mr. Fusion 2 months ago in Controls • updated by Tyler Owen (Lead Developer) 2 months ago 6

I think the control rework caused mouse sensitivity to treat horizontal and vertical movement at a 1:1 ratio, which means that when horizontal is "conveniently fast", vertical becomes extremely twitchy, the smallest movement sending it to 90 deg up/down.


Previously it felt just right, so trying to reproduce a similar ratio or behaviour should work better.


On a related note, mouse look/control as a whole feels a lot different than before, but I can't quite tell in what way. Maybe as if turning was done in small but fixed amounts and input specifies how many of such discrete jumps are performed...? There also appears to be a loss of precision for small movements, while large/fast movements are capped at a certain rate, so essentailly working the opposite of how it should: slow movement should be smoother and fast should be more coarse.


Actually, I think it's mouse smoothing/dampening working in reverse. Small movements are amplified and large movements are attenuated. The faster the mouse moves across the same distance, the smaller the resulting turn rate becomes.

Under review

I feel like I noticed this also, but couldn't quite put a finger on what was wrong. I'll definitely look into the difference between the x and y axis for mouse input.

I may have been editing the OP just before you responded... Adding the remark about mouse acceleration in reverse as the possible cause.

I found the issue and it should be fixed for the next update. Thanks.

Mouse behaviour in 0.61 indeed feels close to what it was before, vertical may be even a bit too low now.


However, the effect range of the mouse sensitivity slider has become huge. Setting above the first 10% or so of the slider results in extreme mouse sensitivity, with a few millimiteres of mouse movement resulting in several 360 spins at 50%.

I've tried to make the sensitivity range more useful now, but it may require you to review your settings after the next update.

Yeah, I noticed the sensitivity extremes after I put out the fix. I'll try to revise it for the public release.
