#312 closed bug (fixed)

Quake2 has awfully dodgy mouse input

Reported by: johndrinkwater Owned by: korli
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: - General Version:
Keywords: Cc: diver
Blocked By: Blocking:
Has a Patch: no Platform: All

Description (last modified by korli)

Like wading through treacle..

In all seriousness, it feels like a lot of mouse moved events are being trashed. A slight nudge of the mouse, and you can be looking up, or over your shoulder, etc.. whereas at other times, it is smooth and controlled.

How can this be tested ?

comment:2 by johndrinkwater, 14 years ago

Sounds like the developers want free Quake2 discs :)

erm, maybe there are some SDL test apps I can find.. otherwise, running Quake2 would be the other bet.

comment:3 by myob, 14 years ago

Quake II isn't SDL, so that might not be the easiest thing to test with ;)

The WAD files for the demo should be extractable from , and the R5 binaries are available on BeBits (

Mouse input also lags when moving around in the 3dMix mixer interface.

Could this be related?

I commented out the code in BView::GetMouse() that looks for messages in the Looper's message queue, so it instead always gets mouse data from the app_server. This fixed the mouse lag in 3dMix.

this code: /*

if (checkMessageQueue) {





Maybe someone with Q2 on haiku could test this and see what happens.

No, sorry i was wrong. This is a different issue and should be in a new bug.

BTW, it seems the Q2 input issues also affects keyboard.

R5 binaries seem unavailable on Bebits. Could someone add another download link ? Thanks.

I tried to run Quake2 but it seems to lock the OS. Is it working for anyone ?

Could this be fixed with recent stippi mouse fixes?

comment:10 by digitalteufel, 11 years ago

I've been testing Quake2 recently and this bug seems to have been fixed.

Ok, thanks for testing!
