Summary0001509: Target box and lead indicator dissapear when using mouse, stay when using a joystick.

On the other hand everything works fine with a joystick.

=> only when shooting while moving with mouse...

There is nothing wrong here, it just selected a different target. The mouse buttons share a config slot with the joystick HAT, so this is almost certainly just a control config problem. Go to the control config screen (F2, "Control Config" on bottom-right) and make sure that you don't have any conflicts. You'll want to double check that no HAT control is assigned targeting functions.

Jeah, I assigned target functions to the hat. worked fine for me, but then I will change it to something else, thx for helping me ;)
Never read anything abount the cfg conflict between hat and mouse...


taylor (administrator)

It's a little known problem, took me a while to figure it out too when I had the same issue the first time. I'm rewriting the code to get rid of this, so that none of the config is shared, but that new code isn't going to show up until sometime next year. For now the only option is just to reassign the config to get rid of the conflict.
