Problem with moving camera with keys or mouse

On my wife's laptop, when she tries to move the camera view either by using the arrow keys or by putting the mouse cursor near the edge of the screen, the camera moves almost instantly all the way to the edge of the map in that direction. Changing sensitivity settings don't seem to make a difference.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

She uses Windows XP in case that helps you solve this issue.

You mean does she hold the arrow keys? Well, usually she just uses the mouse, but I've tested it with the keys and it bears the same results. You have to "hold" them for the camera to continue moving or else the camera stops moving. However, that's when it's working properly. Now if you press any of the arrow keys the camera almost instantly goes all the way in the at direction until it reaches the end of the map.

SOMETIMES... if you just barely tap an arrow key, you can get it to sorta "inch" over in the direction you want, but it'll usually still go to far. It's as if the camera panning movement speed is increased exponentially for some reason.

Also, this doesn't always happen... sometimes, it works normally. I hate to be so vague, but it is what it is... and I wanted to know if there was anybody out there who ever experienced a similar issue and found a solution.

Can I see the map, could be the maps problem.
It's not the map. It doesn't matter what map, and last time i saw her have this problem she was playing campaign mode, too. This problem has also occurred with both an older and updated version of the game. It must be the laptop somehow...

  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I evacuated for it just incase since I live in La Porte pretty much right on the water (in Houston area). Didn't see anything. It's a good thing for me anyways.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's too bad that Blizzard messed up so terribly with Reforged.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Still has a 0.6 user metacritic score.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    (Out of 10)
  • Varine Varine:
    I haven't even tried it yet because everyone said it sucked. How do you get .6 out of ten?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am waiting for Dwarf Fortress to come out on Steam then I am on it.
  • Accname Accname:
    I play Dwarf Fortress from time to time.
  • Accname Accname:
    Its Okay.
  • Accname Accname:
    But the performance is sub-par. Does not seem to be well optimized.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is the Steam version coming with a graphical overlay or is it using the ASCII graphics still?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Steam version has the graphical overlay.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Steam Version has graphics, a new interface and will be integrated in the steam mod stuff
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I didn't think WC3 Reforged was that bad. It pretty much did what it stated (to me at least), but then again I can care less about reforged campaigns and all that. I just care about gameplay.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think people were hoping for a resurgence in mod support. I have little interest in the actual game tbh
  • Varine Varine:
    Plus I know they added that Dota precedent clause where Blizzard can steal your shit which isn't cool.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They sold Reforged to the community as primarily a huge graphical uplift with high res textures and redone cinematics.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They even showed one of the redone cinematics at Blizzcon and that very cinematic wasn't even in the released game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    So I think folks were angry about that.
