Bug? Map zoom issue

Not sure if this is a bug or i'm hitting a button somehow, but sometimes my mouse scroll up and down on my map changes from being zoom in and out to backing in and out of the levels/layers of the map.

i have to restart to get it to go back.


  • I haven't seen it before and its happening to me now. Cant find a setting to enable / disable mouse wheel zooming. If it isn't a bug, its a bad feature.

    Never had this, are you using any third party mouse driver which might be reinstalled?

  • using basic logitec mouse software.

    seems more like a game issue than a mouse issue though. i have no toggles or shift+click set or anything. restarting the game sets it back.

  • It is a game issue, you aren't losing your mind. It's been more of an issue recently

  • Oh good, it's not just me.

    I had it happen once, I can't recall what I did to fix it.

    i had that problem too, but using ALT+TAB to get to this forum to check on the problem fixed it for me.

    That is so weird. I did the exact same thing, came across this message, Alt-Tabbed back in and it was working perfectly.

    Probably your Alt key is virtually stuck in held down state (whyever that's the case), as you use it to scroll between layers together with the mouse wheel. Naturally pressing it again would solve it, e. g. like doing Alt+Tab.

  • I found a temporary solution, alt-tabbing seems to fix it.

  • I have had this issue happen to me many times daily for the past year, spamming both shift keys for a couple seconds fixes it every time. It is infuriating to the point where i have had to take a break several times.

  • To anyone who thinks they have this "Issue" you just pressed tab in the map screen on accident somewhere. Go into the map and press tab, problem solved.
