Moving the mouse makes the game extremely laggy?
I can hardly play the demo of the game. Everytime I move the mouse it is extremely laggy and drops the game down to like 2 FPS while I'm moving the mouse. It also takes like 10 seconds for the mouse to actually update to where I moved it. This is happening on the Steam and the non Steam demo of the game. Does anybody know how to fix this? The game looks so awesome but I cannot play it :(

Another slowdown case.. But yours seems much worse than others. For now, there's no known solution. Perhaps we should contact the devs.

Hopefully this problem will be fixed once the full game is out. I'll buy it once I hear it's fixed.

Lol, I thought I was the only one either, I couldn't find anybody that had this problem. Glad to see that others are having this problem as well so hopefully it will be fixed faster.

Pretty sure it's a problem with your computer, works fine for me.

I don't see what could be wrong with it, I have a pretty decent computer.

I think its a bug rather than your computer... I had the same problem but randomly it works perfectly again. Hopefully nonof us will continue with this prob.

All of you experiencing slow down, could you perhaps tell us more about your computer?
CPU?
GPU?
RAM?

Type of mouse, whether any mouse-related software is installed, custom cursors in use, interesting remote control malware installed, you know, relevant details.

I have a wireless logitech mouse with included software with a default cursor, if sometimes will bug up when I'm using it, but it won't actually slow the frame rate of the game...

I had the game playing with Windows Task Manager up, and found that while it's running fine it is using less memory than when it's glitching up. (the difference is around 100,000 K)

Perhaps it's your computer, my computer has slighty lower specs (6 GB RAM, AMD A8, AMD Radeon HD 6620G) And it runs just fine.

Mine has ridiculously low specs-
1.83 intel duo core, 4gigs ram, integrated graphics (laptop!) and I suffer no slowdown. So I very much doubt it's related to how powerful the system is, exactly...
Hopefully the devs'll figure it out for you guys.

I'm having the same problem on an alienware laptop (m17x R4) using a razer naga.
Didn't have any problems playing the demo.
2 things I noticed

1) The lag is worse the more I move the mouse. It's barely noticable if I move the mouse slowly. The game basicly hangs if I move it around like crazy.
2) The task manager shows the game running at roughly 10% cpu. When I move the mouse a little it goes to 11%, If I move it like crazy it goes to 15%.

Edit : Some more info
Using my laptop's touchpad as mouse pointer seems to work just fine. Even when both the mouse and touchpad are enabled, using the touchpad is fine, but as soon as I move the mouse it's laggy again.

I'm having similar issues. When I played the demo over and over agani I never had any problems.

But now, when I play the full game it starts out just fine. But then just slows down. more and more. Until its just silly-billy slow and unplayable.

Makes me sad :(
