Hi there.

Make sure you've patched UT2004 to the latest version. And also the latest Alien Swarm patch.

After you've patched, make sure to delete AlienSwarm.ini from your UT2004\AlienSwarm\System directory.

I've noticed sometimes the mouse is stiky in the selection menu, but works ok in game. Try shaking the mouse!

Please check your AlienSwarm.ini (found in "\UT2004\AlienSwarm\System\").

The following lines should be present and not unassigned.
Code:
MouseY=Count bYAxis | Axis aMouseY Speed=2.0
MouseX=Count bXAxis | Axis aMouseX Speed=2.0
(Most editors have a search function that you can open by pressing ctrl+f, if not, look under the [Engine.Input] section.)

Silly question and I dunno if this would even be a problem, but... did you run UT2004 before installing Swarm?

Did you check your AlienSwarm.ini file if the parameters above have the subsequent values?

If the values exist or if you had to add them and it still doesn't work, here's how to properly install Alien Swarm in your case;
  1. First start by uninstall Alien Swarm and Unreal Tournament 2004, make sure that the game directory is deleted after the two games are uninstalled so that no files are left behind.
  2. Install UT2004.
  3. Patch it to the latest version.
  4. Run it once and play an instant game of deathmatch or something similar.
  5. Install Alien Swarm 1.3.
  6. Run that and check if it works now.

If you don't want to re-install. Could you at least check if the mouse works properly in UT2004?

So the keys work in UT2004, but not in Alien Swarm. Have you got any other mods installed? Do the keys work in that?

just ran into the same issue while trying to revive the good old alien swarm again.

solution (without reinstalling everything) was to set the engine.input section in the alien as mentioned before. after that, start alienswarm.exe and go to settings -> reset -> set everything as desired. quit to save the settings and then restart.

=> all controls should work now
