The mouse is not working.

Recommended Posts

Naseem Srour

I made a new user in my windows. I started to play GTA San Andreas, but the mouse isn't moving, I mean I can't look around, I can't aim with the mouse or shoot. I always play SA with the configuration is mouse + keys .. Why now the mouse isn't moving? I tried to play with the configuration is joypad, but it's so hard for me and for my little brother(He plays San Andreas alot). So I turned back the configuration to mouse + keys ,but still the same; the mouse isn't moving. Sometimes I when have this problem, I pause the game and resume it, and the mouse is working now. But this time when I made a new user the mouse won't even let me just look around. I have the same problem with Vice City. I checked if the mouse cabel is inserted in the box(I mean plugged in), and yes it is. If someone know how to fix this problem, please tell me.

Does the mouse work on the pause menu; i.e. does the cursor move around when you move the mouse? For me, the mouse fairly regularly stops tracking in the game, but if I pause it and move the mouse around in the menu and then go back into the game it usually fixes it and the mouse behaves normally again.

I have the same problem. I play with a laptop and a USB mouse. Sometimes if i exit to the menu and then go back into the game the mouse doesn't work. Can be a little frastrating...i remember doing the "Vertical Bird" mission the first time and i had exited to the menu to take a look at the map just prior to the action to return with no mouse action. It took me ages before i realised that my mouse wasn't working...and i mean ages ages...something like 20-30 minutes of flying around not being able to fire.

 

Just exit the menu and renter the game a few times and it should fix it (unless you have a different problem to me)

Exactly, I have the same problem too. But I don't encounter it quite often. Entering and exiting the pause menu gets rid of it.

Yes, I just can move the mouse, but I can't choose any option.

No.

 

I tried to enter and exit the menu few times, but it doesn't work.

Sometimes, I have the same problem. What you have to do is go to the "pause" menu, and then move the mouse around franticly for a while. After that the mouse should work again, at least when I have the problem. smile.gif

Yeah, I do that, but it doesn't always work. But if I pause the game again (after it works), it will not work again.

Please help, how can I make the mouse work fine ?

 

EDIT : I did a system restore, to an earlier time before I make the new user. It worked biggrin.gif . Thanks to me tounge2.gif .

I think it's with the USB mouse only. It think you can use a USB to PS/2 converter to get rid of this problem, but I ain't sure coz I haven't tried it yet.

if your mouse has stopped during the gameplay just pause and resume ..

check if your mouse is functioning now if not repeat this step 2-3 times it will.

cause even i had the same problem .. happy gameplay

I used to have the problem where it just stops working until you pause and resume. But also, at least on Vista, it tends to cause the game to crash sometimes as well. I searched online and I found something that works.

 

On XP and Vista, run San Andreas in compatibility mode for Windows 98/ME. Unfortunately, this changes where the game stores your game saves and user tracks.

 

So, to fix that you would have to run San Andreas, make a new game and play it until you can save it, and then save the file. After that, you exit San Andreas, and copy your saves and user tracks and move them to the new location. You'll have to search for it. On Vista it's C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\

Sorry to bump this.

 

To the new location? To which location might that be? I don't know where San Andreas is storing up the files for the Windows 98/ME Compatibility mode. I have the same problem here, and already played the game a bit.

The new location is clearly mentioned in the last line of the post that you quoted.

This -> C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\GTA San Andreas User Files

Aye, it's in the same directory, but for some reason it did not show: I had to use "search" To find the saved game file and it's location from the Windows 98/ME Compatibility.

 

I got it now, Cheers for showing it to me. icon14.gif
