Laggy/unusuable mouse on Steam version of Anomaly-workaround

Postby Sofox » Mon Feb 11, 2013 12:44 pm

I recently got Anomaly on steam, but every time I started it up, regardless of whether it was fullscreen or windowed, the mouse would be incredibly laggy. I'd move the cursor over menu items but they wouldn't be hilighted. Then menu items I didn't have the cursor over would get momentarily hilighted, then I'd try to click on a button but it wouldn't work. Sometimes I could get it to respond by holding the cursor over the button and clicking multiple times and eventually it might respond.
I managed to get through two menus doing this, but when I reached my first tactical point, I couldn't change one of the route markers and was ready to give up.

Thankfully, I figured out a workaround. Since I hadn't heard of these problems before Steam, I assumed that was part of the problem and so disabled the Steam game overlay in the options menu of the Steam client. After that, Anomoly worked perfectly.
