Problems turning avatar with cursor

Postby hhhenry » Mon Dec 07, 2020 6:16 pm

The avatar turns back - both the new one and the old one. Also, i started a new avatar and the Christmas hat is available for the old avatar but not the new one.
I checked for the problem on other shards and nope. Turning with arrow keys is no problem.
To clarify, that's turning the avatar while moving.

Sounds like that annoying mouse bug Microsoft introduced in Windows a while ago. Try installing this fix. If you already have it installed, try removing it, and see if it fixes the issue.
(It could also be that MS finally fixed the bug, which means either Gehn or my fix "overcorrects" the bug, which actually reintroduces it... Yeah it's messy :x )


EDIT: this is wrong. Instead, make sure that you DON'T have the file "ModDLL/Win10MouseFix.dll" in your Gehn Shard folder. If for some reason it exists, delete it.

Please don’t install 3rd party code into the Gehn Shard. This issue was fixed in the Gehn client years ago and is unchanged by Windows 10 20H2.

Don't you mean "don't" ?

Ah, my bad, I completely forgot that this commit ensures Gehn's fix works for all new versions. Nevermind. I updated my previous post.

That file is not there and, to my knowledge, never was.

The last report we had of this issue was fixed by a reinstall of the game. I’m not sure what exactly that did, but there you go... viewtopic.php?p=74839#p74839

Do you happen to have multiple monitors?

yes, I do. So I know Win10 does not play nice with dual monitors.
I shut off the second monitor, unplugged it. Checked Display settings for multiple monitors, restarted and the problem remains, unchanged.

So, I uninstalled. Reinstalled on my E drive.

Now, I have worse problems
Both in the launcher and the explorer, the display is much wider than my screen to the right. Circles are ovals. I can't reach the quit and graphics controls. And my cursor works turns to the left but will not turn at all to the right.

HELP!!
