    Forward!

    Hey guys, I'm encountering a strange problem. I'm using 'w' to move, and it keeps making me run forward after pressing 'w' without me pressing it any longer. It is extremely constant, and in order to stand still I have to hold 's', until it randomly gives up and decides to stop walking forward, and then I walk backward a couple steps. Can someone help me?

    try hitting your numlock key...that's the default for autorun on/off...it may be set to on. also look at your keymapping in the options panel and see if anything else is using the "w" key....in fact the autorun on/off might be bound to "w" as well...change it if you see that.

    Hitting 'S' should stop your forward movement no matter how 'W' is mapped or whether you've hit the autorun. This sounds more like it might be a keyboard issue. I've had keys stick in the past and cause some strange effects.

    Next time it happens, try a quick, sharp tap on 'W' to see if it unsticks. If that works and you stop, cleaning the keyboard may resolve the issue, depending on what kind of keyboard it is.

    my laptop is brand new, and there's nothing sticky on my keyboard. I've tried hitting 'w' quickly again even before this thread but it hasn't worked. It's really getting annoying, and I'm thinking maybe it could be a Win7 compatibility issue or something? I'm not even doing anything special like talking on Ventrilo while playing, I'm just in the game with no other programs opened (essential ones exempt), and it still has the same problem.
