Windows 10 Mouse/cursor zig zags can't move in a straight line.

Print Post Print Post  
A few friends and I decided to install this game again and started playing. We all have windows 10 which I don't know if it is the issue because it used to work fine on windows 7.

When we try and aim and move the cursor in a straight line our aim zig zags which makes it quite frustrating to play.

we used avp2_avp2ph_aio file to install the game.

We have tried running the game in windowed mode also trying disabling hardware cursor and the issue still persists.

Has anyone found a fix for this?

Try adjusting the DPI or polling rate?

Tried following the fixes for that issue on that post. But the fix doesn't work with Windows 10 :/

Also tried changing the polling rate to 125 and then I tried the DPI to 125 which made the game even more unplayable for me.

What type of mouse is it? (if it's a razor series) these are known to have some major issues with the game (it's becoming more recent now) (Could also be down to a Windows 10) but i have installed AVP2 AIO on my windows 10 laptop and have no known mouse issues (it's a usb one)



Have you tried swapping the mouse? have a spare? - As Kenny suggested, reduce the Rate to 125 and reboot the computer perhaps?


Also look for driver updates (if your mouse is a gaming one)

I have a Corsair and Logitech mouse both with fully updateds drivers. Ive tested the game with both with and without drivers. Ive tried changing dpi and polling rate then restarting the pc that doesnt work either. What I might try is install the game from my original disks instead. because earlier on the day i had the game installed from the disks then i uninstalled and installed ur version then the issue started happening. Maybe somehow somthing corrupted when installing.

It's worth a shot, but the AIO is a direct rip from the official CD's. (nothing is corrupt or missing)


I've installed the AIO on multiple machines not a single problem at all.

Good Luck

Game is old, it can happen and it's still going on to this very day.

Of course.

Top of the line gaming mouse might cause issues... but a shitty standard USB mouse would be fine.... kinda ironic.
