Gaming :: Middle / Right Mouse Button Click Moves FOV In Far Cry 3
Dec 23, 2013
When I play Far Cry 3 and try to aim or throw explosives, my field of view/crosshair to the left and down. Holding shift and clicking makes the crosshair move less... I tried installing the latest driver for my mouse, my graphics card but nothing changed.
I am having a strange problem on Windows 8 as of late. Just in the middle of work the mouse pointer freezes in its tracks and there is nothing doing, but to restart. And then all goes on well as if nothing' happened. Today, I had the same problem, but this time the the mouse seems to revive after a minute so and after a while it again freezes up.
I looked it up in the Event Manager and find a constant error which seems to have been going on for sometime. The error is always Event ID: 16385
I wonder if the error has anything to do with the mouse freezing up the works or is it unrelated. The mouse battery is fully charged and the drivers are are the latest (according to Microsoft) and the manufacturer says this is only version, therefore neither of these can be the problem.

In 8.1 if I right-click the start-button to get up the new "simplified gray start menu" there are options like "Programs and Features", "Device Manager", "Command Prompt" etc. When I click on these they no longer launch, nothing happens.
right clicking on the browser back button doesn't achieve anything - I'm really used to it popping down a list of the previous pages so I can hop back for example to the search engine results list page which I had about four pages ago etc.
This started happening just recently & I think it was after a Windows update.
Every time I want to copy or move a file using the select location link, the copy/move window that opens is always below the task bar (or below the screen if I have task bar set to auto hide). In either case I cannot click the move or copy button before first moving the window up. It may seem like a small thing but I do this operation a lot & it is very annoying having to do that extra step.
Mouse click to invoke Metro UI If you have a mouse with programmable buttons: The Windows Key is 'ctrl-esc' I have a Logitech mouse with programmable buttons. In the Logitech button settings you can program any button to go to the Metro UI:
1.) Go to your mouse settings; 2.) Choose a button; 3.) Select 'Keystroke Assignment; 4.) in the resulting 'Specify Keystroke' - Keystroke window: 5.) Simultaneously press Ctrl and Esc. 6.) Note: In the Logitech example, you cannot use your keyboard key-by-key to enter ctrl+esc. You must simultaneously press the control and escape key in the above window. [Hold down ctrl and esc] Worked for me.
Explanation:Windows 8 dumped me into the old W7 desktop when I exited an application -- even if I started the application in Metro UI. Then I had to go back to keyboard to press Windows key. Now I have a mouse button to get me back to Metro UI. Editorial comment - DWJ: I think Windows 8 should default to the Metro UI upon exit from any application. After many months of objecting to Windows 8, I now like it -- but I do not like the extra key press on the Windows Key [on the keyboard] to get me back to Metro UI -- where I started. If Microsoft wants me to use the Metro UI, then Microsoft should dump me into the Metro UI whenever I exit any app.
I'm having a problem with getting the mouse wheel button to work correctly in 8.1
I've switched to left handed use to alleviate shoulder pain.
Before this I had the mouse and keyboard center installed. I use a cheap USB keyboard and a microsoft USB optical wheel mouse. Configured for the right hand, everything works correctly. The right button is the normal select, the right is context and I configured the wheel button to double click.
When I switch to left hand I lose the wheel button double click. The select / context buttons are properly working, but when I click the wheel it appears to be the same as a context button click. I thought maybe the settings got messed up when I switched the buttons so I tried setting the wheel button to another function (open charms in this case). That works. Switched the wheel button back to double click and it goes back to open context menu.
I uninstalled and re-installed the mouse and keyboard center. That made no difference. Seems like a bug here.
On, this is on a new (mid-april) HP laptop so there is a touchpad that I almost never use because I generally have the mouse, keyboard, and external monitor attached with the lid closed.
Mouse works in game to look, shoot etc, but in the HUD/Setup options it doesn't, cant use it to change settings, or click on anything, its just dead. I can see the pointer, move the pointer, but that's it.
I tried and have managed to run RCT1 almost flawless in compatibility mode (Windows 98/ME and run as administrator). The one thing that bothers me, is that after playing RCT, every window I click on becomes de-activated, except for the window you click on first (after the game closed). Whatever you click on outside that window doesn't do anything, even the taskbar. You can however navigate with no problem in that specific window.
Alt-tabbing to another window does work: it activates the window, but as soon as you click in that window, it becomes de-activated again. It sounds pretty odd, and I think it also is. It bothers me a lot because the only way it seems to go away is after logging back in. I've looked around in the taskmanager, but whatever I did there didn't solve anything. It also hasn't anything to do with the hardware, as both the external mouse and the touchpad (I'm on a laptop) have the exact same issue.
Can't move the cursor off the active screen to the top, right or bottom. But when I move the cursor to the left side, it goes forever.
I often do a split screen e.g. to look at two panels concurrently, you can go to the option between minimize & maximize (does this mode have a name???), move the panel to the right and you get a half-screen on the right. Do the same with another screen, move it to the left, and you again get a half-screen. Dunno what this feature is called, but it exists in Win7 & Windows 8, great for doing copy-and-paste from one to another.
Problem is, when I drag to the left, it goes off into space.
was in the process of installing 8.1 on my home pc when the power shut off in my house. Of course this would happen. I upgraded from Vista using the digital upgrade thing early last year, and since I have no physical cd/flash drive available, is it possible to reinstall windows 8 prior to the loading screen?
When i try to start it up it and get an error with bad_system_config_info so something got corrupt when my power went out. It goes through trying to repair it then suggests I system restore however it just gets stuck at the Windows 8 loading screen for 20 minutes now. I don't have anything on the pc i can't do without, i Just want to reinstall it/boot into a safe mode so I could reinstall windows that way.
I customized my power plan (High Performance) so that the monitor sleeps after 5 minutes of inactivity. However, the monitor doesn't actually sleep. The LCD's colors turn to black, instead of the panel/back-light turning off. The mouse cursor also stays idle in the center of the screen.
In the advanced power options, I've made sure sleep happens after 5 minutes, and "Adaptive Brightness" is off.
I just purchased a laptop with Windows 8 installed on it. I have one problem. I know if you hit one of the corners of the screen the right toolbar becomes activated and is displayed. My problem is that it tends to be displayed when I move the cursor in the middle of the screen. When it is displayed I have to deactivate it in order to continue what I was doing. I do not mind the toolbar if it is not so sensitive.
I have a new Dell Inspiron 15r as of this Christmas, running Windows 8. I ran the upgrade to 8.1 but I still have a problem with my cursor wanting to "hover click" on links or browser tabs, as well as being stuck in the down position, when I'm not even pressing on the touchpad left button. I end up selecting an entire region of stuff while moving the cursor across the screen.
I can't figure out what to change or configure in Control Panel, or is it in the Dell Touchpad configuration utility?
In Control Panel/Ease of Access Center/Make Your Mouse Easier To Use I have unchecked "Activate a Window by hovering over it with a mouse." Still happens.
I am having some problems with 3 years old PC. Only while playing games (Civ 5 - Heroes & Generals - Rise of nations) I suffer from freeze/crashes, PC doesn't show a BSOD, the mouse pointer works normally it doesn't freeze (until I try to alt+tab or alt+ctrl+del), and from my speakers I can hear looping sounds.
The only thing I can do is a hard reboot. I try reinstalling windows, and the problem still exists.My BIOS, drivers* and OS are update, I perform a memtest for 6 hours and show no errors, I can run prime95 + kombustor and everything is fine, no temps problems, GPU never go over 68c and CPU at 58c, and no crashes.
DSIM commands show no errors neither.
*I tried latest NVIDIA drivers, and old ones, im actually using 334.89 version, and the problem persist.
It's been happening for awhile now since windows 7 through to windows 8 and i'm not sure why but it usually happens when i play games even with lowest settings, whenever it freezes it makes me have to force shut down manually.
