When I am in the map screen, the mouse acts up. Most notably when I select a new destination for my squad, the cursor will not go all the way to the western edge of the map. It only goes to about the east side of san mona (column 5). So the on;y way I could get to these far western locations would be to go block by block manually. Can anybody tell me how to fix this? Thanks

do you play in windowed or fullscreen mode? try switching mode (via ini editor) and see if problem still occurs.

Thank you!! That appears to work when I switched from full screen to windowed. Is there any way to reposition the window? It pops up in a strange place on my screen and I would like to be able to reposition it.

It should pop up in upper left corner of your desktop.
Anyway, the window should be movable like any window, so either grab upper window frame with mouse or use the keyboard to move windows 8as described in your Windows' version help, F1)

Thank you for your responses. I was able to attach the mouse to the window, even the the cursor disappeared. I just had to fund the sweet spot Smile The problem is that in 1024x768 the window goes off of the screen at the bottom,and I can't resize it to fit the screen. In 800x600 the window is VERY small. I really appreciate you taking to time to answer these n00b questions Very Happy

So your monitor's resolution is in height less than 786 (probably 1280x720)?

Possible solutions:
1. live with the small 800x600 windowed version;
2. use 800x600 in Full Screen and have your video driver scale it to fit (and live with the distortion);
3. use newer, unstable versions of 1.13 that allow for most wide screen resolutions in window mode (and live with the possible bugs and being beta tester);

Pick your poison! Razz

PROBLEM SOLVED!

I was having similar problems with other games and found a forum post that suggested I do the following:

1) right click on the game shortcut (in this case the ini editor launcher)
2) select the compatibility tab.
3) select the box that says "disable display scaling on high DPI settings".
4) Click "Apply"

Any time my screen does not match the game this seems to fix it. I am using an HDTV, and this setting works wonders for these types of problems with ANY game.

Again, this is for users of HDTV's.
