TheOriginalAbe posted a topic in Bug Reports, CrashesFirst, thank you for reading this post and i'll try to be as concise as possible. I play on the steam version of this game on pc. My main control system is a wired xbox 360 controller. i have 3 that all work with all my other games and work with astroneer to an extent. I have noticed that occasionally my player will stop being allowed to move forward during normal gameplay (i haven't discovered any particular event that triggers this). My player can still move side to side. If i back off of the left stick and then reapply he will gain the ability to move forward again but only for a short while. I love this game so much that when i play i simply tap the stick forward and then let off and so on to get to that next resource but its cumbersome and takes some of the enjoyment out. If you have any questions for me regarding this bug please let me know. I havent been able to find anything online about other people suffering from this issue which worries me slightly. Hope its resolved in future updates. Thank you devs for being so active and making such a beautiful wallpaper generator
Gonna give some advice that worked for me and maybe will help you all too. I play on steam on pc. Most games when launched for the first time will ask for permission to get through the firewall. Astroneer didnt for me and when trying to join a friends game it didnt let me join and gave me all kinds of confusing issues. So i went into windows firewall and changed the settings. After that, VOILA all is well. So maybe give that a go and if it works dont forget to come back and let the rest of the community as well as future readers know that is the solution.
