Issues controlling the view

Postby xcvb » Sun Apr 22, 2018 7:09 pm

On wayland I always had the issue that it is hard to control the view because it jumps between floor and ceiling but since FG 2018.1.1 I have a similar issue in X11 too. Now from time to time the view jumps to a random direction instead of moving just a bit. Does anyone else has this issue or knows what to do?

on initial ready, it sounds like you have some view controller that is buggy or worn out (think of a worn out joystick that has jumpy spots in it)... what are you using to move your view?
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."
