My work colleague has just bought BF2 , he has a Microsoft 5000 mouse,his problem is that when ever he starts the game the mouse just looks up. No amount of settings change this. Up shot is he cant play the game.
He has tried inverting the settings, downloaded a patch to rectify this behavior , nothing worked for him.
I said i would ask on here to see if any of you have experienced this behavior and what the fix was.
His graphics card is gtx 240.

odd, I know BF2 added support for the novint falcon gaming peripheral. I wonder if somehow it is receiving a fake input and causing the aiming problem. Maybe he can edit the controls for the novint and the problem will go away.

This is a known bug... To fix it follow these steps:

1. Locate documents\Battlefield 2\Profiles, and in that dir. you will find folders named Default 0001 0002 och 0003 etc if you have several logins. To find which one is yours existing then open each folder and open profile with notepad to see the username.

2. The fix itself is done by replacing the controlls.con in your current profile folder with the controlls.con from another profile folder...


Hope it helped.


Edit, if it didn't work.. Try to delete the profile(s) folder(s) and BF2 will create a new profile, this is done inside bf2 with the login manager once youre in the game.
