View Full Version : Mouse Clip on Dual Monitors
22nd Sep 04, 9:12 AM
The mouse does not clip to the region of the fullscreen window if there is a monitor to its left that is in negative desktop space. I tried putting both monitors in positive space and it seemed to clip fine. If I have my primary monitor on the right and a secondary on the left the mouse will move out of the primary monitor into the secondary during game play making scrolling to the left very challenging :)
The demo seemed to have clipped the mouse just fine.

Got the same problem! Since Homeworld 2 my mouse always disappears, too!
In the windowed modus of Dawn of War, the problem is gone.
I use the Logitech MouseWare driver: 9.79 with the nVidia driver 61.77 for my GeForce FX 5900XT. But I hade the same problem with my old Geforce 4 Ti 4600 with Homeworld. Both monitors got the same resolution.
The funny thing is that like PhatChap the demo worked fine!
Please post some ideas becourse you can't play the game without a right edge!!! :banghead:

This bug requires me to completely disable multiple monitors because the game is unplayable with out an edge. I really hope this bug gets fixed because it's really annoying to have to disable a monitor just to play a game. :(

When I was playing IC (which DoW is based on) I simply moved my second monitor so it was kitty corner to the first one, that way only the upper right corner would be where the mouse could exit from.
Kinda like that.

Thanks UberJumper, that's a better solution than disabling the entire monitor. I will at least not loose the positions of my desktop icons. Alternatively I can run it in a window. It would still be great if this were fixed :)
I've been complaining about some bugs recently but I just want to say that Dawn of War kicks ass ;) I haven't been this excited over a game for a long time. (and I never heard of the warhammer universe until this game). Great job!

I agree it'd be great if it was fixed, I plan on setting up a second monitor again when I move to my new house.
