I’m not sure whether this is a bug or not.
I play on PC. My mouse behaviour in NMS has always been a bit erratic. Sometimes I have to press the mouse button several times before the game responds. Sometimes I press the mouse button once, but the game sees a double click (so it will, for instance, move me two sections ahead in menus, instead of one). It was a little irritating, but nothing I couldn’t live with.
However, with the ability to travel by Portal, it’s become a real problem.
Entering a Portal address requires using the mouse to enter a sequence of 16 glyphs. There is no provision for backspace - if you make a mistake, you have to start again.
Because of the peculiar behaviour of my mouse, somewhere along the 16 glyph string, usually several times, my mouse click will produce a double glyph, instead of one. I can’t correct it. I have to go back, and start again.
And it happens again, and again, and again… It’s virtually impossible for me to enter a correct Portal addreess.
Things I’ve Tried:
It’s definitely not my mouse. I’ve tried 5 (five) different mice, three of them brand new, straight out of the box. They all work fine on other computers. They all work fine on this computer, except when playing NMS. They all display the same problems when playing NMS.
I’ve tried updating my Windows mouse drivers. I also tried rolling back to earlier versions. It didn’t make any difference.
I’ve tried altering the double-click speed within the Windows mouse driver. Interestingly, it made no difference at all within NMS. It looks like NMS isn’t actually using the Windows mouse driver, but one of its own.
I’ve tried updating my motherboard drivers (on the basis that it could be due to USB settings) - no improvement.
