Win: mouse pointer/cursor is frozen in other windows
« on: November 17, 2009, 11:24:06 pm »
OS: Win XP SP2
Game version: r26960dev
Motherboard: Asus M2N-E SLI
CPU: AMD
Screen resolution: 1024x768
Video: Radeon HD 2400  
Video driver version: 8.591.0.0 (from Control Panel data)
Mouse: A4 Tech OP-35-D
Mouse driver: IWheelWorks 7.XX (6.0.60 in Control Panel data)

When the game is running, something keeps the mouse pointer in the windows except game window in the upper left corner of the screen. After exiting the game mouse functionality is restored.

This wasn't observed before, when I played summer dev versions.

Can anybody confirm?

Don't you have joystick or gamepad attached?
Sometimes they send data when they shouldn't do. Moving it a bit usually solves the issue or you can disable joysticks in options/input menu or by starting the game with +set in_joystick 0 parameters. Disabling joysticks helped someone recently had problem with other super input device too. Hmm.. was it a keyboard or a mouse, maybe touchpad? I can't remember.

I can confirm, but only for fullscreen.
When tabbing out of fullscreen the mouse was tied to the upper left corner of the monitor. Pretty hard to shut it down without a mouse ;)

Oh, yes. I play in fullscreen mode.
