Thread: Can't figure out how to unbind mouse from window

    Default Can't figure out how to unbind mouse from window

    So I normally play games in a window, and I ran into a problem when trying to do so with this game: the game binds the cursor to the window, and there is no option to unbind it. Among other things, this means it is not actually possible for me to move the window to a different part of the screen.

    Is there any way to actually change this?

    As far as I know it's only possible to move the game window if you have the the following setting in the [video] section of the CFG file, if the window is borderless you can't move it. You also need to 'tab out' to 'unbind' the mouse.

    windowed = 1
    borderless_window = 0

    Well, that lets me move the window at least.

    Still have to fiddle around with my computer's weird alt-tabbing to actually respond to messages and stuff, but general consensus thus far seems to be "unbinding the mouse from the window is physically impossible and shame on you for trying" so I guess this is the best I'm gonna get.

    I have come to prefer having the window borderless and at the size of my screen (1920*1080) as that makes it more stable when alt tabbing. As long as I have one other program running, eg e-mail app, it's fairly simple to alt+tab - but then that's how it works with most other games.
    No other ('full screen') programs, no alt+tab switching.

    I'll give that a try I guess.

    Sorry if my other post was a bit rude, by the way -- I'd spent hours trying to get this to work yesterday, and I was getting a bit frustrated. I do genuinely appreciate your help.
