Hi, sometimes, when I use my LEFT mouse button to look around (the one that does NOT CAUSE the character to turn with the camera) when I release the mouse button, the character turns to face the direction the camera was looking in, this is very irritating.

Help appreciated, cheers.

No, this is not my problem, my problem is that i can look around fine, but when i release the mouse, the character will turn around to face the same way i was looking, it STARTS randomly, but it is very consistent in the way it works

I have been having the same problem off and on since game release. The way the camera works is all screwy. Normally the camera will reset back behind me when I release the mouse button, but sometimes it glitches, and from that point on, when I release the mouse button it turns me into the direction I was looking.

Very annoying, mostly because it is so inconsistent. Can't get used to it being one way or the other.

Another VERY annoying thing I've noticed as a tank, the right mouse button can now be used to select a target. This is very bad as a tank, with huge things all up in my face, and I try to move the camera around to get a look at what's going on, I end up losing my target, and end up targeting a party member, or something else. VERY annoying.

SWTOR, please fix this.

I sometimes need to rely on my camera, but not actually diving in that direction.

It seems to initiate on my gunslinger, and stays account wide until I restart the game. Do you know how hard it is to restart the game? I have to go into Task Manager and force quit the process.

This bug is such a pain. Please acknowledge it, administration, and fix it in this next patch. I never want to see it again.

This glitch is still there, and seems to show up on my gunslinger. Then it stays account-wide.
