Boss Fights!

Post by Bort » Sun Oct 17, 2021 2:04 am

Hey folks! I've recently taken on a couple of the bosses on The Island and thought I'd share my experience with them. I dont expect anyone to watch through all of these, but the first one is probably the most interesting, as I panic after making a mistake, hah. Also the volume is a little loud on the first two, before I sorted out an input volume issue...

I miss playing ARK. But I can't seem to figure out why my mouse and on screen point is so far out of sync.

Hmmm. Do you use that "Geforce Now" service? I think that's what Flash uses, and I recently dabbled with it. I found that on some days when my latency is higher there would be a delay in mouse movements. Other than that, I could only recommend setting your graphcis settings to minimum just to troubleshoot if it's a performance problem.

My pointer is almost 1/2 of an inch away from what I try to click on. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the game, mouse drivers and everything. And that's the only game it happens to.

This post suggests 2 fixes:
1) alt tab out of the game, then alt tab back in (temporary fix)
2) disable steam overlay

Another thread suggested the cause may be from a mismatch in resolution between the game and your native desktop resolution.
