I was clicking around on my 2nd monitor, clicked somewhere in the Boundless client in my primary screen to get back into the game, then exited the inventory soon after clicking to get back into the game. Auto-hitting starts.
@lucadeltodecso Is there any way to interrupt or cancel the actions or inputs on client side to keep this from happening after exiting menu? Client seems to think the left mouse button is held down.
Happens to me a lot after finishing a stack of blocks, then refilling it with shift+clicking the blocks in inventory then closing it. It starts right away placing blocks like i am holding the mouse button.
I hear you, happened to me in the Guild Hall like 2 days ago… blink bomb + range augment.
And this happened while i was refilling gleam into my inventory using shift+click.
I have a spotty connection and have come to the conclusion that this occurs when game input is interrupted or state changed such that the game receives a “mousedown” command but misses the corresponding “mouseup”.
Most often noticed after a dialog change or sometimes entering a world from sanctum, where it’s not obvious that the mouse is locked in a mousedown state.
IDK how to address it without a change to the way auto-using a tool works, so just adding my observation here.
Not a real solution but a quick mouse click usually resets it. After applying one more hit to whatever you’re accidentally destroying ofc …
I would suggest instead sending a mouseup or some other state release along with the command to close the menu or on entry from sanctum, etc… It would add minimal traffic/bandwidth and I’m not aware of a situation where I’d want to come in from sanctum or need to exit a menu ‘already swinging’, though I’m sure someone can come up with one.
Unequip/reequip is giving me spasms just remembering what it’s like having 6 quirks equipped
In the end this seems more like a shortcoming in the underlying protocol than a bug in the client. This fix would probably be very transparent though and cause minimal overhead, while addressing most cases. It wouldn’t help with all of them, though:
Glad this isn’t an issue on ps4 anymore. Thought they fixed this bug a long time ago. Also I always put my tools away now after I accidentally destroyed part of my base. Heck I’ve but my controller down before and the button got pressed(hair triggers). So it just seems easier to me to have my loot stick(wayfarer with revive aug) and grapple in hand when I’m doing anything that doesn’t involve using bombs or hammers etc. or just have the tools away.
