    When I load up Far Cry 6, once I get to a screen that shows the mouse cursor/reticle, it drifts quickly to the upper left corner of the screen. I can hit down on the dpad of my controller and the reticle moves to the next menu item down, but immediately drifts to the upper left again. I can only access the first and second menu items because of the drift. I have managed to start a new game, but once I get past the first cut scene, the mouse continues to drift to the upper left and the game is entirely unplayable like this.

    I have tested with numerous modern games without encountering this issue (Deathloop, Back4Blood, Red Dead Redemption 2, even Far Cry 5). Far Cry 6 is the only game that seems to have this particular issue. I did run into a similar issue where controls were unresponsive in certain directions (left and up) running Mortal Kombat 11 and turning Direct Input off in the config file resolved that. I've looked in %UserProfile%\Documents\My Games\Far Cry 6\ for a config file to modify, but the config files that are there are empty. I'm running at standard 4k resolution (3840x2160) with AMD Ryzen 7 5900X, Nvidia 3080, 32GB memory and I've experienced the issue with no controller, an xbox elite controller, and a ps5 dualsense controller. Has anyone else seen this issue and solved it?



  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    @tunafreedolfin Turns out the issue was due to having a joystick plugged in. Once I unplugged the joystick, the automatic movement seems to have stopped and the game seems playable now. Hopefully this helps others who see this issue.
