input errors render the game near-unplayable

Postby geuchemain » Sat Jul 21, 2018 7:38 pm

I have been experiencing a number of inconsistent errors for a while now. For some time, there would be a bug where if i would alt+tab back into the program, it would input next weapon, i would start jumping nonstop and firing. this would end if i simply paused the game immediately after tabbing in, so it wasn't too inconvenient. Then, i would have menu errors: i would try to select a savegame but it would always default back to the first listed save within a second. sometimes, it would automatically select whatever i was hovered over, and when i entered the game i would be constantly scrolling through weapons, being unplayable. that then stopped, but now i have problems where i cannot quicksave due to the menu being cancelled out immediately and it switches between walking and running without use of the cl_run command. i have tried updating the game and messing with the norawinput setting but none of these things have helped. i would like to be able to play doom and this is making it quite difficult.

This sounds like a problem with whatever your input device is, or something that manages your keyboard layout. What are your computer specs, including your operating system and model of keyboard/mouse?

uhh im on windows 10, my keyboard is a microsoft wireless comfort keyboard 5000 model number 1394, my mouse is a dell usb MS116t. i have never had these type of errors with any other game

i should point out that my doom install directory is ooooold. i mean, as old as this computer (2 years) so not that old but i dont know. might be relevant. that said i have updated when applicable

What version of GZDoom? Are the batteries in your keyboard fresh?

You could also try disabling controller support. I've had issues before with problematic joystick drivers messing around with inputs in GZDoom.

version 3.4.1, batteries fresh

the controller support bugging out sounds like its probably correct. thanks
