  1. Thank you!

    For those that didn’t manage to get to the directory to access the Input.ini do the following:

    1) Press windows hotkey, type %appdata% and press ENTER

    2) On the directory on the top windows explorer search bar it should be C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming on the directory, click in the APPDATA one to access it

    3) Now go inside Local, then Packages, PrivateDivision.TheOuterWorldsWindows10_hv3d7yfbgr2rp, Local Cache, Local, Indiana, Saved, Config, WindowsNoEditor

    4) Now access the Input.ini and add the line,

    [Engine.PlayerInput]

    bEnableMouseSmoothing=false

    Now press ctrl + s to save it, that’s it.

  2. For bEnableMouseSmoothing to actually work it has to be under [/Script/Engine.InputSettings] section not [Engine.PlayerInput]:

    [/Script/Engine.InputSettings]
    bEnableMouseSmoothing=False
