Ok, so I have this problem where sometimes when I scroll the mousewheel down to get my ammo box, it scrolls up and gives me a pistol, and visa versa. I was using a grenade launcher and wanted to switch to bullets to shoot down a guy, but instead ended up throwing a box of ammo at him... I have checked that the controls are right, and for the most part it will work, just at the most inconveniant times it will switch around, help ? thanks in advance

TL;DR: Mousewheel sometimes switches controls and will scroll up when I scroll down. Have checked controls and they are fine

I end up throwing med packs at enemies. I've been told I'm quite generous :)

Yeah. I end up rocketing my own tank a lot instead of repairing.

This is why I prefer to use the number keys

LOL I've done that a couple of times too.

But yeah, use number keys, or if you have a multi-button mouse, bind them to that.

Its so annoying. I've started to use the number keys more now. I've noticed I get my pistol out faster when I use number keys too.

Same, switches faster and less chance of trying to hit enemies with a med pack.

What is your mouse. Sounds like you have your mousewheel set to the fast scrolling mode. On the g500 for example there is a button on the mouse you press to get the normal scroll back.

Same problem here. I find it happens more when i am sprinting and change weapons.

When i was playing the Beta, my mouse wheel was always inverted.

I hope they fix this, i am tired of throwing med packs at enemies.

I've had the same issue, i've noticed it always happens to me when im holding down shift and sprinting.

never does it backwards if I'm not sprinting, that's just me though.

It definitely happens only when shift is held down

irritating and has gotten me killed many times

nothing like rounding a corner, trying to switch from GL to AR, and ending up face to face with an enemy with just an ammo box in your hands

Q= Secondary weapon
W= Primary weapon
Mouse6= Gadget
Mouse8= Spec Weapon

Direct selection > scrolling

EDAF are my movement keys. WSAD has always felt too cramped for my long fingers.

Never heard that combo used. I was a arrow key player for the LONGEST time.

HA!

Back in the Wolf 3D and Doom days it was Arrow keys for movement, left-Ctrl to fire and space to open doors. That was it :D

change the scrolling speed within windows and then u can scroll a bit slower even though your scrollin fast on the wheel ...hope that helps :cool:

I use the numpad, and I've used all the accessible keys already for other things :(

I have always used Mouse1 to walk and Mouse2 to shoot, mouse5 to reload. ASD as left, right and backwards.

And thanks for all the help from everybody and it is nice to see that I am not the only person with this problem :S

I have always used ESDF as opposed to WASD. Gives you more keys to bind to important things like direct weapon selection.

This seems to happen to me especially when I am engineer. I'll say fire a rocket at something and scroll up to go previous weapon and get my Krinkov out but it will instead take the input as 'next weapon' and get out my repair tool.

Yea this happens to me every no and then, that is why I too prefer to use the number keys, and when I get a new wireless mouse I'll assign the extra buttons to pistol and rifle. Everything else I'll just use the wheel.

With the power of thought.

lol, that was hilarious.

I have an MX-518 mouse and the game won't bind any actions on mousewheel up/down.
Is there any solution to this problem?
