Mouse/looking not working on macOS

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I just bought the game and installed it on macOS. In the main menu mouse clicks are not always registering. But more important, when I start a game the mouse only works when a dialog is open. But otherwise no mouse movement will have any effect on looking in any direction. In other words, I can only walk using WSDA, but no turning by mouse.

  • if I'm not in in full screen mode the macOS dock will appear on top of the game window.
  • if I'm in full screen mode then nothing happens when I move the mouse.

I do notice that both left and right clicks are working and also the scroll wheel is working, just not the moving (looking).

My setup:

  • iMac (Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, 2017)
  • macOS Mojave v10.14.6
  • Vintage Story v1.10.12
  • I also (manually) tried mono version v5.16.0 and v6.0.0 (latest) all with the same outcome.

Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.

Cheers,

Richard70nl

Hm, there's one thing we could try. In Version 1.8 I've fixed a lot of issues on mac os. You could try version 1.7, version 1.8 and version 1.9 of the game and see if the bug persists. Then at least we would know its caused by something I did recently.

You can get past versions on the game account manager

Hi Tyron,

Sorry that it took so long but I think (for now) I found the issue. I'm not using the Magic Mouse of Apple but a Logitech Trackball. It took me a while to find my mouse but the game works fine with the mouse, not the trackball. Sorry I can't be much of help, the mouses of Apple are seriously flawed in my perspective hence the trackball. This is the first app that does not work with it.

Is the mouse algorithm something you wrote yourself or is it part of a library you use?

Cheers,

Richard

Oh, glad to hear that you got it resolved. No the mouse input system is not written by me, its handled by a third party library called OpenTK, which however had not so great MacOS support, I spent *a lot* of time fixing even worse mac os related bugs in that library. These changes have been added to version 3.1 of OpenTK. But yes, still more issues to resolve.

I'm sorry that I probably won't play it with the Magic Mouse, it's to awkward for me. Still I will keep an eye on this. I love what you did so far so keep it up. Feel free to drop me a line if you need some Mac/Apple testing to be done.
