Crazy camera and unstoppable auto-run

Since a few weeks I have been experiencing an issue and I wanted to know if it was known...

90% of times when I fall to my death and I spawn back to a medcenter my camera is going to rotate non-stop and/or my character is going to run non-stop too. I haven't found anything that really helps other than sticking my character in a corner till it stops by itself.

The issue is becoming really annoying because it also happens when I am being transported to a different area, for instance the past/future portals in Dread Palace or the last boss from TFB which leaves me almost useless for as long as the game wants to play with me.

Am I alone experiencing this? And is there anything to do in order to prevent/fix it? Thanks!

Doesn't hurt to run a repair as a first step

If you have the letters ST on the lower left launcher after login, close the launcher, goto the game folders and delete the folder called BitRaider , also in the game folders is a file called DiskCacheArena also delete this file.

If no letters ST then the repair is on the launcher (lower left cog), still delete the DiskCacheArena file.

Well no luck, deleting the cache file and repairing didn't help. My character movements have still a high chance to be altered when I fall and die or when I am transported to a different location: I am turning on myself and/or I keep running.

I am alone? Any advice please?

It happens to me, specifically after a fall-death, too. I have found a single right click restores normal camera movement and a single press of the direction key it has me running in. If I'm autorunning forward, only a single hit of the W key will stop the movement. S key if it spawned me running backwards.

I have only encountered this after a falling death and cannot recall the last time I slipped off a cliff and didn't spawn taking off in some direction with right-click steering of the camera locked in.

I've had this happen after a wipe res. I can get the spinning to stop but either have to do a UI reload (Ctrl-U twice) or relog to stop running to the northeast permanently. It seemed to happen a lot on The Arcanum.

When that happens I usually spam directional keys and left + right click but it rarely helps.

I'll give a try to the UI reset - thanks - though it might be tricky in the middle of an op...

This happened to me after a fall, going for the +10 endurance.on makeb

workaround: find a wall to run into & double tap or triple tap W usually does it for me.
