Co-op can't select gestures
Tried to play Portal 2 co-op today, but I couldn't get past the gesture part. Pressing Q brings up the menu, but moving the mouse only moves my viewpoint, as if I didn't have Q held down. Can anyone tell me what might be wrong?

Out of interest do you have some kind of joypad / controller plugged in by any chance?

I was getting the exact same thing as you describe - when I unplugged the controller, the mouse would then allow me to select some gestures.

One way to tell for sure is to hold down the Q button, and then move the directional stick on the controller to see if it does anything.

Got it. I tried unplugging the controller before launching the game ( before I'd unplugged it while the game was running) and I closed Better DS3. One of those worked, not sure which.

I have this problem, but I don't have a controller.

I had the same issue and for me I think it was related to the fact that I have 3 monitors. I disabled the extra 2 monitors in the Windows 10 settings, then started up the game, and it worked correctly. After that, I enabled the other 2 monitors, started up the game again, and it still worked after that too.
