Select arrow moving on its own when quicksaving

Postby zvx333 » Fri Apr 29, 2022 4:50 pm

Hi everyone, first of all sorry if this is the wrong sub, I don't know where else to write this.

I am experiencing a weird behavior when quicksaving. I made my own mod based on Brutal Doom and Dox Personalized Addon and I am testing the mod now for bugs or issues.

When hitting the quicksave key, sometimes the selection arrow (Yes/No) moves on it's own, it does not happen all the time, just every now and then

I think this has something to do with my mod, as I have never experienced this issue with any other mods, but maybe I'm wrong and somebody else has seen this already and it's a GZDoom issue...

Here's a video showing the issue at the end (1:14)

Needless to say, I'm not pressing any keys, nor I have a background app doing that

Does anybody know what could be causing this issue?

Using GZDoom 4.7.1

Thanks in advance :D

Do you have a gamepad controller plugged in? Check if the stick is not being nudged just a bit by something.

Hi wildweasel, thank you for your quick answer

I have a gamepad connected but I don't think that's the issue. In fact, I have just disconnected the gamepad, launched the game, and the issue still happens.

This time, it happened just before selecting the quicksave slot, like this:

Quicksave key -> Select quicksave slot -> Do nothing -> Quicksave key again -> issue

Well, I've confirmed it's a GZDoom bug, has nothing to do with my mod

Another video here with Vanilla Ultimate Doom:

It happens if you quickly press [Direction arrow + Enter] to select a save slot

Then the next time you press the quicksave key, it's like the arrow key is hold down, altough it is not

If the selector moves on its own ir normally is the mouse doing micro-movements. If that happens with your mouse you cannot use the regular mouse mode for operating the menu but have to use touchscreen-like.

I have seen that happen with several of the mice I owned over the years.

Hi Graf, thanks for your answer

It's already set to "touchscreen-like"

Here's another video:

That looks like it somehow misses the "key up" event.

Indeed, it seems like that, as if the key is still held down
