Hi, when I am in the BF3 spawn window my mouse pointer shows up and moves around but will not click on anything. I have tried with two mice, same problem. Rebooting use to fix the issue, now it does not fix it. I tried the support chat line and they are useless!

Has anyone else had this problem with BF3 for the PC?

How do I resolve it?

Thank you,

TK

Do you mean during the spawn window? I get this sometimes, try hitting "enter".

Hi, yes during the spawn window. I can use the enter key select the spawn point, but I need the mouse to select the type of soldier I want to use, engineer, assault, etc. The problem is definitely with the software not at my end. I am using a new computer with Windows 7. My mouse works fine in all other applications I own.

Anyone know what is wrong?

Thank you,

TK

is there something open behind your game window that has it's attention..................i know when sometimes i'm playing a game and something pops up from the desktop it's got the mouses attention, you still see the mouse and it moves but it's for the window behind it......

Make sure there is nothing like that in the background

Hi, I rebooted and ensured everything was closed down and then started BF3, the same problem occurs! In addition, the spawning window boxes are slightly smaller when I have this mouse clicking problem!! Very strange!

Yeah, right now the game is not playable for me! I am going to try downloading the software again and trying again. If it is still an issue, I will buy COD3 and switch to that game. I am shocked that with all the patches that have come out for BF3, they did not fix this critical bug!!

Crazy!!!

Does this happen everytime?

what I do is either hit escape which make the mouse wake up then I press resume and it will work in the selection window or I just use the arrow key to select the spawn point and press enter the mouse usually work the next time around.

Hi, I am in the process of re-downloading the software, it is very slow. So what I am hearing is "right-clicking" the mouse is the correct command? I believe I tried this and it did not work, but I will try again. The mouse works fine when the game is playing, the weapons shoot, etc, so I am not sure, what the issue is with the software, it should be an easy fix, so why hasn't it been identified and fixed?

What the heck is going on here?

Cordially,

TK

to the poster...I have had the same problem...happens maybe about every other round or ever few rounds...it is annoying but I get by.....basically for me I can still scroll up or down with the arrow keys so choose which spot to spawn at, but I cant change the class I am using...so sometimes I get stuck as a recon for an entire round and get killed...but I play through it...and it always fixes itself after a few minutes, or at worst, by the start of the next round

This bug is absolutely infuriating (granted it's not the only one), Dice too busy using their aimbots / pandering to noobs with new balance patches to actually fix it (also like the other bugs).

It's reproducable on every PC I've ever seen the game on so.. Y'know.. Playtest your games maybe?

Wow! I thought it happens to me only. I worked around it by using arrows keys to navigate (squad) and hit "ENTER" for deploy.

But I noticed this issue only recently... may be bug came along with B2K patch
