    Dead Bug Link randomly moving in one direction uncontrollably

    I'm not sure if this is Windows 10 specific or not, but I have come across a big game breaking problem in which Link sometimes starts moving in one direction uncontrollably, even when I'm not pressing the direction he gets stuck in, and I can't seem to get it to stop; it just seems to stop on its own. Has anybody else been experiencing this problem?

    Are you on a laptop? On Linux, I've had issues where it treats the built-in accelerometer as a joystick for some bizarre reason. That is, tilting the laptop will cause link to move.

    No, I'm using a desktop computer with Windows 10. And for the record, I usually use the keyboard to play, and I've been having this problem when using the keyboard. I've also had this problem when using a controller to play.

    Are water tiles, or 'Big Link' at any way involved when this occurs?

    Are the directions of movement diagonal, or orthogonal?

    I was playing the 5th quest by bigjoe when I was having this problem, so in this case:
    1. No, neither water tiles nor Big Link are involved.
    2. It's orthogonal.

    Has this happened on multiple occasions? Just to clarify, is your keyboard wired, or wireless?

    I had not run into this on Win 10, with a keyboard, or with a USB pad, and I'm at a loss to explain what could cause it in that situation. I don't know what software you have running in the background, or what other processes are happening, but if this occurs again, post a screenshot of task manager, and if it ever occurs thereafter, do it again, and perhaps we can find a common thread. 5th Quest is not doing anything scripted, AFAIR, that could ever do this, and I have not encountered it, at all; other than diagonal movement issues that have been rectified.

    If the same bug is affecting you, then the next release may cure it. Otherwise, this is going to be another fun one.

    Yes it has; I'm using a wired USB keyboard. By the way, what operating system are you running ZC on?

    Windows XP, 7, and 10; and Ubuntu 10.04; for the purpose of testing, and ZC development.

    I have experienced joypad ghosting, on some hardware, which was a USB host controller issue, from what I could tell. The USB interrupts, were what I suspected.

    By any chance, are you using Dell hardware?

    Also make sure your hardware drivers are up to date.

    Yes, my keyboard and my computer mouse are from Dell.

    I tried updating my drivers, but I don't think there were any updates available for any of them.
