mouse problem

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Yesterday I installed ef2000 reloaded to my laptop: asus x45a, win7/64.

However, the mouse always freezes after I finish playing a mission.

If I press Ctrl-F10, the cursor changes to the smaller one,

but it still freezes.

The mouse works in the beginning when I starts the game,

but after finishing a mission, it always freezes.

Do you know what is wrong here?

Please advise.

Are you using a USB mouse, or just the laptop's mousepad?

I have no idea what's going wrong, but that may be good to know.....

I can't reproduce this. :(

Have you tried autolock=false in the dosbox config file?

If you alt-tab out of the game, and back again, is it still locked?

Hi mikew,

I have just tried alt-tab, then click on the game again to get back in.

And the mouse works again.

Only now the window is not fullscreen, but I can alt-enter,

so it works as a workaround and no need to restart windows like before.

Thanks for letting me know. :thumbsup:

I really appreciate it very much. :beer:

I can't guarantee that fullscreen mode (alt-enter) will work properly.

For EF2000 Reloaded, a fullscreen is better realised by using a window set to the size of your monitor. So, while it may look like fullscreen, it's really a window.

This way, we have more control over the 3dfx scaling.

thanks mikew.

however, the screen resolution of my laptop is 1366x768.

and it is not on the list.

so how do you set it up in dosbox if I want to play with fullscreen=no ?

please advise.

Where you've stored the launcher, there should be a directory called 'config'.
In which, there is a text file called called 'dosbox_res.cfg' where you can add 1366x768.

I'll add 1366x768 to dosbox_res.cfg for the next version.

Note that you can also manually add "1366x768" in the resolution combo box (it's not an enforced list).

Hi mikew & Home Fries,

i have added 1366x768 to 'dosbox_res.cfg'.

It really works.

Thanks for the tip.

Hi mikew,

after further obsevation,

it seems that running ef2000 in non fullscreen mode, actually fixes the mouse problem,

my mouse never freezes anymore.

thanks for letting me know. :thumbsup:
