Update 8.0 Win 10 Avatar keeps running after releasing the arrow/w key

Recommended Posts

In this version, as in past versions, my avatar continues to run even after I have released the forward arrow / W key. It eventually stops but not before plummeting down into a cave to my death. I am able to steer the avatar in a different direction but unable to stop it.

If you press-and-hold W to go forward

Then press-and-hold Alt

Then release W

Then release Alt

This makes you walk forward until you press W again to stop

Try using ESCape to get the controls menu.  Then hit it again to exit.  

My avatar sometimes starts to slowly spin and that trick clears the sticky mode.

Running under Win-10 also has the title-bar and task-bar activate - bug in Astroneer.  If you move the mouse-pointer into either and then release a held button, Astroneer is not informed.  And when you move the cursor back in the client (Astroneer) area, Astroneer thinks the button is still pressed - bug in MS-Windows.  Assuming you are lucky enough to not do some MS-Windows action - like minimizing, launching another program, exititing, etc.
