Re: Selection Issues on PS4

★★★ Newbie

I just downloaded the Sims 4 onto my new PS4, and I'm having this crazy cursor issue to the extreme. Every single menu I'm on, it skips from the top of the icons to the bottom, and doesn't let me choose anything in-between. Happens in Create a Sim, the main menu-every menu. I've put cursor speed at 50%, makes no difference. It briefly highlights the middle icons/options, but quickly bypasses them and goes straight from top to bottom and bottom to top of the screen. I've read all the controls, exited out of the game, but this glitch still happens. 


I thought I was doing something wrong, but I'm being so careful about barely even touching the arrow keys, and they still fly across the screen and bypass 70% of the icons!!

Please help Standard smile I don't know what to do....

I get this issue too in build and buy mode. Sometimes switching being live & build helps. Sorry can't be much help but just thought I'd let you know it happens to other people - the problem isn't you!

I have to say I have been playing for quite a while and this is still happening to me! Is there a solution to this awfulness?

Re: [NEEDS INPUT] [PS4] Scrolling too fast randomly

@crinrict  This still happens, though it seems like they tried to fix it with the last patch. The cursor stops responding and kind of freezes. Before the latest patch 1.20, the cursor would then zoom all over uncontrollably. Now when the cursor freezes and stops responding, you have to close the window you are trying to select something in to get it to respond again. This happens fairly frequently. Sometimes, the cursor still zooms all over but I have found it to be a much more rare occurrence with 1.20 but the freezing and no responding cursor has taken its place as the constant and the fast scrolling is more rare.

@PoptartJuniper I also noticed that if you leave the cursor alone for about 5 minutes it fixes itself.
