Weird Scrolling Bug - Any ideas?

  • #1, by nick-lSunday, 20. December 2020, 21:05 3 weeks ago
    Hi community,

    A bug was reported today for my first game (Yet Another Hero Story) that really confuses the hell out of me. The game has been published for more than a year and has been already played by a large number of players but this is the very first time that such a bug is reported. FYI the game has been rebuilt with VS version 5.1.4

    The bug has to do with the game automatically scrolling in scenes longer than 1920px long. The player is accessing the screen and then without any reason the game simply starts to scroll losing the hero focus. 

    The player's monitor  is a standard 1080 monitor and the game is running on Windows 10. Tried both "Auto" and "Desktop" in config.ini but nothing changed.  Unfortunately, I don't have any more info or ideas. The game runs well in all three of my windows testing machines.

    Anyone experienced something similar in the past? Is there a chance that this is a driver issue?

    After dozens and dozens of tries, the bug also occurred to me in a build that was created in 5.1.5 , so certainly this is both a 5.1.5 and 5.1.4 issue.

    The problem is that it seems to be completely random. Also it will not stop no matter if you leave the scene and return. You have to load a previous save file in order for it to stop.

    Anyone experienced something similar?

    Hi, I have a similar problem. When the character enters one of my screens (which is also longer than 1920px), then it is scrolled once to the right (the entry point of the character is on the left), then it is scrolled back again. That's it. It almost calms me down that this seems to be a bug. I almost went crazy looking for a mistake caused by myself. :-)

    Are you on the Discord too? I'll post the problem there. They usually respond faster there.

    Good to know, I am not alone in this. No unfortunately I am not on Discord but maybe I should create an account.

    Is this completely random for you too?

    I only have the problem on one screen. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't. I couldn't figure out if there was any pattern. It seems very random to me.

    @nick-l:

    It doesn't seem to be entirely random after all.
    I have two exits on my scene. One on the right and one on the left. If I leave the scene on the right and enter it again on the left (my scenes make a kind of circular route), then for whatever reason the scene scrolls through to the right and back again. btw. it doesn't happen the other way around. Strange...

    Yes the behaviour is always the same when the problem starts. It is that I can't figure out how it starts.

    In one of my scenes, it does exactly what you describe.

    In another one, it never returns back to the hero.
