need to change after further looking in

now happens all the time

looking down with mouse now moves you left.

eg: looking down 10 degrees moves you left 10 degrees etc.

holding alt doesnt affect or cause it but it doesnt stop it. title should be "looking down looks left"

Hello ScrewYouThatsWhy and thank you for the report.
By "mouse now moves you left", do you mean that the character moves and steps towards left or that the camera moves to the left (so looking down would result in looking down left?)? Do you have a possibility to test this with a different mouse? And have you tried to delete the contents of your C:\Users\*username*\Documents\DayZ folder to see if it has any effect on the issue?

ok I mean it turns my character to the left.

Further info:

  • when I look X degrees down I will also turn X degrees to the left (so the same amount)
  • if I ADS, when I look X degrees down I will turn about 5X degrees to the left (eg: 5x as fast)
  • yes it happens on multiple mice (I originally thought it was my Logitech Gaming Software mouse but it happens on every mouse I have at home)
  • I deleted dayz.cfg to no effect, however, as suggested here VVV, deleting the DayZProfile.062 file solved the issue.

it is now fixed for me and I am unable to replicate it for you any more unfortunately. I tested it a lot and the above is all accurate and hopefully useful. If asked Qs I may recall more info but cannot replicate.
