  • Mouse-look not working in game

    I just reinstalled FarCry after a long while of not playing it. I dled and installed the cumulative v1.4 patch, created my n52 profile, and booted the game.

    Everything was fine, and I adjusted video, audio, etc.

    Then I hopped into the game, and this is when it happened: I had no mouse-look. Mouse worked fine in all the menus and such, but when I got into the game, there was no mouse-look. I looked in the options to make sure there was no free-look-toggle deactivated, but there wasn't. Nothing on logitech's website (I have an LX7 Cordless Optical mouse) OR on Ubi's site about this problem.

    I tried using the mouse with my reciever plugged into my PS/2 port next, and rebooted my machine and started up FarCry again. Again, no mouse-look response, while the mouse worked perfectly elsewhere.

    I tried unplugging my n52 and seeing how that worked, and same response.

    Now, last time I played FarCry, I was using an older Logitech cordless, and it worked fine. I also had my n52 then as well and the two interacted just fine.

    So, I'm wondering what is up with this mouse? What can I do to get the mouse-look enabled in-game.

    It should be noted that the mouse works just fine in-game for all my other games.

    Have you tried looking at the FileFront's FarCry forum section for additional help? I can't say I've tried FarCry after switch over to my Logi G7...so I can't tell you if I would also experience a similiar problem.

      I looked a little bit. Filefront doesn't exactly have the easiest-to-search forums.

        Hmm...you have a point there :p

        Let me try it out this weekend and see if I get the same problem. Have you tried looking into the .ini (or whatever extension those files are)...the one that saves your keybinds and such and checking to see if free mouse didn't save correctly (or whatever it is for mouse aiming)?

          it automatically uses the mouse for aiming. that's the thing. though they DID add support for game pads/joysticks, and I KNOW it detects the n52 as a gamepad. the thing that's wierd is that even when I disconnect the n52, it still doesn't let the mouse be used for mouse-look.

          I'm going to check the .ini files anyway to see what I can find (I know about how to edit those a bit).


          Edit: Just looked for the .ini files and couldn't except for something called rc. Anyway, they didn't have anything I was looking for, and I also found out that it DID recognize the mouse, b/c I found these lines in log.txt

            Hmm, that's weird. Is your DirectX the latest? Sometimes older games have DX installers that don't check for newer versions and overwrite the newer version with the older one. That could be a cause for no mouse function in ingame play.

            Have you adjusted mouse sensitivity ingame? It could be that it somehow set it itself all the way down.

              yup and yup. when FarCry came out, it was still 9.0b. I have 9.0c installed.

              I also turned sensitivity all the way up. Nadda. No movement of the view what-so-ever.

                Hmm, give me till like Thursday, I'll try out FryCry after I get back from classes on Thursday.

                In the meantime, try a different USB port on the back of your system. Sometimes it could be some IRQ conflict with that particular USB port.
