I've had this same issue since the start. With me it is moving backwards and to the right. I use my mouse left handed, so I use for movement the I, K, L, and J keys. My side mouse button is assigned to the CNTRL key using logitech setpoint. This getting stuck moving (usually backwards) has gotten me killed a lot while questing. I can only imagine how bad it must be in PVP or flashpoints.

I just did some experimenting trying to duplicate it out of combat. One thing I noticed is that the keys that get "stuck" are ones where if I push the CTRL button first and then they key nothing happens. If I push CTRL and then my forward button (the I key), I move forward. If I push CTRL and then the back button (the K) nothing happens, i have to use the K before hitting CTRL. Same with the L button which I use to strafe right, and which occasionally gets stuck. If I hit the K key to move back and then hit the Ctrl Button for a count of more than "one-one thousand" I am stuck moving backwards. However hitting the back button again (without CTRL held down) stops it. Not having the CTRL button pushed down and pushing the "stuck" key is how I can get the "autorun" to stop.

I think I'm just going to remap my mouse button to the ATL key instead of the CTRL key. As another problem this is causing me (only because i'm left handed) is that I like to use U with a modifier key for a nice accessible keybind and in the game that is set to taking away the UI screen, so that happens accidentally sometimes to me as well. the only reason I've not just remapped my keys yet is that the mouse keys for me are set in Logitech and if I change the ctrl to alt I'll have to go to my other games and reset every keybinding that uses ctrl.



Edit: I just tried duplicating this problem using the CTRL buttons on the keyboard rather than the mouse button that I have assigned to CTRL. It does not happen when using the CTRL button on the keyboard. I do not know what this means. I'm getting ready to make my mouse button the ALT rather than CTRL but now am a little worried that it won't fix it, that it is something about this particular mouse button.

I had it happen to a friend of mine. Dying in game also seems to reset it as when you respawn, it sets your movement state back to nil. So you should be able to suicide on the enemy or type /stuck (which kills you in a WZ).

Used to happen to me in PVE as well. BY default autorun is mapped to a mouse button as a secondary if you have a 4 button mouse. Remove the autorun key binding for the mouse button and it stops happening. For some reason the game gets wierd with mouse button interaction.

This happens to me and I agree with the other posters that it seems to be caused by the ctrl key.

The workaround I have found to work is that whenever this happens to me, I spam ctrl-w, which seems to shut the automatic run off.

I do not know if my having "forward" bound to both 'W' and 'CTRL-W' has something to do with it though.

Confirmed!!! Removing the secondary binding for autorun (which was set to mouse button 4) solved the problem for me. Thanks Githander.

So I finally gave in and rebound my mouse button from control to shift, and have not had the problem... As coming from WOW, I am used to having 60+ keybindings, (using alt, control, and shift plus X key), which causes me some pain, as now I have eliminated my shift plus X keybinds (without the mouse button).

As far as I can tell, swtor doesn't seem to demand as many keybinds (I am only lvl 26). But the best resolution to the problem is just to remove control as a modifier to your mouse.

I get the same problem... usually in pvp warzones... usually once per game, sometimes more.

It has NOTHING to do with my ctrl, alt, or shift key... I don't have them bound to anything. I went through EVERY keybinding in preferences and removed EVERYTHING that wasn't movment or a quicklot button (i.e. 1, 2, 3... no key modifer).

Still happens.

I can't find a way to reproduce it at will, however.

And, get this... sometimes, when it happens, pressing w will strafe move me sideways... and I lose my mouse cursor.

Mashing every button on my mouse and movement keys fixes it every time... eventually... but, it's still ridiculously common.

I am using a nostromo gamepad to move and such, but I've never had a problem like this in any other game before. And opening the chat windows does not spam w as if the key is stuck.

I've never had a problem getting stuck going backwards, however... Probably because I don't backpedal much. It may be linked to the other animation bugs (i.e. Bounty Hunter's Unload, when the animation keeps playing in a loop). Maybe run forward is stuck playing in a loop. Then again, maybe not.

I'm going to try remapping my keys to TURN left, etc... the default... instead of "strafe". Dunno... out of ideas at this point.

Just wanted to chime in and say I'm also getting the same bug.

I have not been able to replicate the bug using some of the methods described in this thread (ctrl+Direction moving) and like others it happens to me mainly in warzones. Changing zones or re-logging is the only way I have been able to fix it.

i found that unbinding autorun seemed to fix the problem, if that helps at all.
