Diablo® III

Continuous movement/mouse button hold bug

The mechanic to continuously move has stopped working for me. When you click on an area of the map and hold down the mouse button, your character is suppose to continuously run in the direction of your mouse cursor until you let go of the mouse button. Mine no longer does this, so I'm having to click around a billion times for continuous movement. AND, skills that you can "hold down" or continuously use by holding down the mouse button do not *continuously* work either.

I've replaced my mouse, closed all other programs, turned off my second monitor, changed the video settings in the game, none of it solved my problem. I've tried everything, and holding down the mouse button seems to work in other programs as it should. For example, I can hold down the mouse button and drag to select items on my desktop, which is the same basic mechanic.

*Important*: When I minimize and then maximize D3, holding down the mouse button to continuously move works for until I use a single skill or fire a single arrow, then goes back to not working.

PLEASE FIX THIS, it's making my hand literally hurt after a few hours of play.

- Always breaks after using ANY skill, even firing a single arrow (upon minimize -> maximize to get it working temporarily)

Hi ManHor,

By any chance do you have software called Synergy installed? If so, you might try stopping the Synergy server service.

I have had movement key/mouse issues in various games all due to the Synergy server service.

Hope this helps,
