Loss of control of character.

I am not sure if this is a Mac bug or PC & Mac but while playing my Templar my movement controls stop working. It happens randomly on interaction with mobs or even picking a quest up. Even though it stops the use of movement keys W,A,S,D, I can use all other keys. This started happening 2 days back and most time results in my character dying due to no control of it.
Even in dungeons when grouped, you get a quest at the start of the dungeons and if Im running while someone picks it up, my character will keep running and I can no longer stop it from running.
Most times doing a reload fixes it but today I lost control 3 times within 2 minutes and the 3rd time I could not get control back, so had to completely log out and back in.

    There was an issue with getting stuck in quest giver dialogue or crafting table though it was fixed a while back. Try using /reloadui command in the chat window next time to see if it fixes it.

    Don't think it is Mac specific.

    Although I didn't actually write /reloadui I did say "Most times doing a reload fixes it" which is doing that.
    I know they fixed the bug where you got stuck at the quest giver or more often the professions table from playing beta. But the problem is neither of those bugs. Its more like the keyboard stops working but only with the movement keys.
    With the lost of control while in a group thing, when someone picks up a quest the quest dialogue window comes up while I'm running. This disconnects the keyboard movement functions, so releasing the "W" key will still make my character carry on running, even after Ive closed the quest dialogue window. Which leaves me directing my character into a wall while I type "/reloadui"

    The quest/control bug is a bit annoying but the other control bug where I loose complete control of my character while just fighting mobs or anything is game (W,A,S,D stops working) is much more annoying.

    But as you said, it probably is not just a Mac problem. But I do know there is no by pass apple keyboard functions with in the game so a lot of keys cannot be used or do not even work. All the F1-F12 keys cannot be used and theres quite a few others which just bug out. But this is off subject and is just a side rant / something that annoys me.

    This is a known bug. It happens to me. From what I read, I believe it happens on the PC as well.

    Hopefully we get some info on this soon.

    this has been an issue for me for about a month i have a mid range pc it's nothing special but it's run the game pretty well. A possible quick fix is pressing ESC once or twice.

    Separate issues are being unable to use skills in combat at random intervals and not being able to weapon swap this is particularly amusing because the it displays a message saying cant swap weapons now .

    i'll be running in one direction ill go to turn or stop and just keep going, for me i then get continuous beeping. It's seems to get worse in high intensity situations . I thought i'd fixed it but went in auriels bow EU and it was horrible combine that with the truly awful lag and it was totally unplayable.

    a similar example that shows what happens is in this video:



    Here a is collection of different forum posts from a variety of sources with the same issue:

    Part of the issue is to do with sticky keys and filter keys which are in the ease of access centre in windows 7. So go in and turn everything off personally i disabled the registry edit value for ease of access to stop it working.

    Here are others posts that contain related information and some potential fixes:

    A response from zenimax would be greatly appreciated. It would seem to indicate that the issue is client side as it persists on pc and mac. I thought it was just me until i saw this post.

    If anybody has any extra information that adds to the above plz post it. I love playing this game and i want to help zenimax to fix it. I have attached my dixdiag to this post

    Seems a known issue for both clients. I do suggest making a new thread on this in the Customer Support section as it's more likely to get some response there than here as it is a general issue.
