Mouse Leaves Window with Dual Monitors[message #323501] Wed, 31 July 2013 00:00 Go to next message

Essentially, if you have the game in fullscreen with dual monitors, then you'll be able to move your mouse past the game and into the other monitor, which makes scrolling the view that way a huge pain, and where a click will minimize the game.

Strangely enough, this only happens in the tactical mode and not the map/laptop mode. Also happens to 1.13.

Straiccatella seems to fix this, but I'm not sure if I want to run that because it doesn't seem to play the movies and unit running speed is very slow.

Has anyone had any issues with this? Is there a way to lock the cursor to the game window without doing windowed mode?

For vanilla JA2, I'm not aware of a way to fix it, though there should be quite a few programs that lock mouse to a specific portion of the screen or the active window.
For 1.13, pressing Ctrl-z or Ctrl-Y should lock the cursor to the window, at least for the tactical map, to facilitate scrolling (as well as keep the mouse ingame). Pressing it again releases the mouse.
Not sure if that is included in 4870 (Stable), but it should be included in the unstable versions. Pressing Ctrl-Z while in the laptop screen should also toggle the mouse capturing, so you can move your mouse outside the laptop, though it's only useful if you do want to click somewhere else.

Ctrl-z or Y doesn't seem to work (using Unstable 1.13.5521) however I noticed Alt+Tabbing out and back in seems to do the trick. Unfortunately, if I open the map screen then go back to the tactical view it's unlocked again.

I'll look into external programs.
