# 1 Ship Steering Stuck
11-01-2012, 06:55 AM
I've noticed a few times over the past week or so that when I have been in instances, especially if I have to respawn, that the steering on my ship gets stuck. I can speed up or slow down, but if I attempt to change the way my ship is facing I either fail outright, or end up flying around in circles.

It did make for some impressive kamikaze moments, like ploughing into the side of a Tactical Cube in Infected, where I got stuck until it destroyed me, losing a chuck of its own health in the process, but I would have preferred to keep my distance.

At first I thought it may be caused by my ship taking injuries, but this happens even if I have healed any injures my ship may have picked up.

I also considered that it may be my keyboard being a pain, but it seems to work everywhere else, and this is pretty random when it occurs.

Anyone have any ideas what is causing this? Or even, has anyone else experienced anything like this before?

It happened to me a lot in STFs, thought my keyboard/mouse were going bad.

Thank God for that, I'm not cracking up, lol.

I'm not 100% sure of it happening outside of STFs, but certainly that is where it is most noticeable.

So, anyone have any ideas on how we can resolve this?

Target an enemy then hit 'esc' to untarget them. Usually fixxes the problem for me.

The fix for me is to double click somewhere on my screen that isn't a UI piece and then I can steer again. What I mean by that is, somehow, interface loses focus and so I force focus back on the interface by double clicking on some portion of the screen that is not the HUD (space background) and it fixes it.
my new saying is "cryptic made me do it" in lieu of the the "devil"
