My first thoughts start with heat build up, then physical controls, failing computer components (loose connectors), lastly corrupted OS or game files.


Do other programs also exhibit strange behavior?

Is the problem intermittant or only occur after the equipment warms up?

What are your internal temperatures (a comprehensive utility here if you don't have one already https://www.cpuid.com/downloads/hwmonitor/hwmonitor_1.35.exe)

Is the equipment cooling adequate? (fans and internals clean?)

When did the problem start?

How did the problem start? (gradually or abruptly)

What game controls? joystick/mouse-keyboard? How connected (wireless? USB? other?)

What hardware are you using? pc or laptop

Problem solving is usually easier when you have lots of information to begin with.

Go into your control assignments and see what's assigned to the view movement commands. Assuming it's a hat switch on a joystick, then go into joystick calibration where it shows all of the buttons and watch the hat button icons. If they keep blinking, then your joystick is telling your computer that the hat switch is being used when it isn't.


First step in that case is to take the handle apart, blow out the dust, and if you can get to it, spray some contact cleaner on the switch (the actual switch, not the hat covering).
