I got the same issue, would be helpful to add a bind key option in controls.

Good changes, especially the server mode dedicated servers.

I still want you to make the 240 degree strike aiming system similar to M&B where you can click before flicking as this would make it far easier to aim attacks where you want them to go. For me this is the most important change to the game you guys can make at the moment.

Don't know if it's a bug but the game takes ages to open. From clicking Mordhau icon on my desktop to seeing the Unreal Engine 4 logo can take up to a minute.

Keybinds for choosing the items in the menu can also be set in options now.

WHERE?!
I've been scrolling through the bloody settings for God knows how long and I can't find these darn options.

For everyone having troubles opening up the console, do this:

  1. Go to <unit>:\SteamLibrary\SteamApps\common\Mordhau\Engine\Config\ and open the BaseInput.ini file.
  2. Locate this line:

+ConsoleKeys=Tilde

  1. Change "Tilde" to a different key, for example "J" (or any key which does nothing in-game), and save the file.

  2. Restart Mordhau. Console should open up when pressing J.

I'm still having a lot of issues with the directional attack system.

Here's a video of me trying to get a LMB standard strike / right to left swing to demonstrate my problem:

I have Strike bound to Left Click. Wheel Up bound to Stab. Wheel Down to Overhead. My sensitivity is 0.5, my DPI is 1200. I enabled "Invert X axis".

  • I'm literally killing myself and respawning with the crosshair "centered" at default height (I'm not even moving my mouse after I spawn).

  • I just left click without moving the mouse at all and it does an overhead for some reason.

  • I move down the cursor 5 cm and without any dragging I get a lower strike. Okay, I guess?

  • Moving the crosshair 2 cm up, click (no dragging), and then I get a left to right swing, hooray!

  • I move the cursor 3 cm to the left, no change in height, no dragging (or very very minimal), left click. Boom, an overhead.

  • I move the cursor another 2 cm to the left, no change in height, left click. A left to right strike.

I don't know if any of this is intended, but it just feels like I have no control of what I'm doing. Much less when I'm in combat and I move my mouse a lot more. And that's just the regular LMB strike. I bound a left strike to Thumb mouse 1 and Lower left strike to Thumb mouse 2 and it will randomly do inverted attacks as well.

I even reset my Controls to default and it still happens.

I'll do a directional overhead once. Kill myself, respawn, press LMB with no change in position and I get an overhead. I will move the cursor a few cm to different directions, stay absolutely still, LMB and I get attacks from nonsensical directions.

They won't jump from any height, even if they survive. Like the walkways along the walls in Camp.

That does look weird. Have you tried with different mice?

Did you have the same issues in Alpha 2 & 1?

Yup, almost identical results with a different mouse. The one I regularly use is a Logitech G402. I disabled its software just in case and I still get the same results. Tried a different USB port, having nothing else on the USBs, unplugging my keyboard.

Not sure what else I could try to get rid of this issue. No wonder combat felt random, lol.

I didn't try testing it without moving it like in the video, which makes the issue to be really obvious, but yes, I used to LMB and I'd see an overhead out of nowhere mid combat or an alt strike while not looking in that direction.

I could do some more indepth testing but I don't know if there's any debug command to show the appropriate info.
