Problems with my "looking" in game.
As of today -it would seem that I am unable to use my mouse to look around - but am able to use the arrow keys. This is very troublesome! I have exited and reconnected the game and it has "fixed" the issue - but it seems that is not even a set fix because ive had the problem for the last hour or so and it doesn't matter how many time I exit and reenter the game - I still can't use my mouse to look around! Please help =P

You wouldn't happen to have a controller or joystick etc. plugged in? This issue has come up countless of times on account of this.

No, I'm not that dense.. I checked everything on my end. It's awkward because if i hit ESC ingame, I can move my mouse in the menus - just not to "view" things ingame. It's weird because it's not all the time - only sometimes it happens and not sure what makes it go away but sometimes I login and its fine - othertimes i have to use the arrow keys or just not play for awhile till the problem goes away. No controllers ever get plugged into my machine - I have motionjoy installed but it's been awhile since I've played anything with the ps3 controllers. I could try uninstalling that if you think it's causing issues in the background?

I have run into this problem before. Since matchmaking has not been implemented yet, they have applied this "ninja" fix for the time being. If you start owning people too hard, the game will start to bug out in order to give the other players a chance. Sometimes this is in the form of ghost problems with your mouse; sometimes it will result in your character randomly abandoning ship. Just click on the "Progress" tab in the top left of the screen to see if you are doing too well for the game. If you experience this problem a lot, never fear there are a few handy solutions. 1) Go outside 2) Indulge yourself in another form of cocaine for about an hour 3) Fly a Spire. Hope this helps.

Could be the same issue as here:,504.0.html

They apparently had the issue specifically when either Steam tabbing or alt-tabbing. Next time you get the issue, you can try alt-enter to switch between fullscreen and windowed, which seemingly fixes a lot of bugs in this game ^ ^.

But yeah, the motionjoy could be an issue, I'm not too sure about it though. But if it isn't to big of an issue, it could be worth trying to uninstall.

If that doesn't work you can try e-mailing "" with the issue. Since this is quite common there might be something else that I'm currently forgetting. Attach your client log to the mail as well (To find it:

Got Motionjoy too, though it's never running. No problems with looking around or w/e.

Actually alt+enter seems to fix it - I think you are right with the steam/alt tab thing by the way.

Well good to hear that alt-enter works, (at least as a temporary fix)
