:question: DESCRIBE THE ISSUE IN DETAIL (below). Limit to ONE issue per thread.

I have 2 screens in a 1X1 format, They are stacked/ on top of each other. If you move the mouse to the top of the screen the curser will go out of the window onto the top screen task bar. When you click it can cause you to end up on some random program or the start menu. The task bar on the top screen is in the Locked Area for the game. I have the game in full screen mode and clamp mouse to window enabled.

Bump, Has a dev replicated this issue or do you need anymore info ?

Hey there! I should be able to pass this along if it is still an issue. Before I do so, can you clarify whether you’ve checked the “Clamp Mouse to Window” options (under Game Options) and whether that helps your experience? If it still does not, I’ll be sure to get this passed along to the team for review! =)

Thanks for the report!

@GMEvangelos That option works for me, but I need to disable it and then re-enable it every time I restart the game.

Sorry for the delay !

Yes I have that enabled since beta. It is locked but to the game + the top task bar . If you click on the task bar or a icon you are then out of the game window and free to move a out on the too screen.

@GMEvangelos Are you able to provide an update for this ? Little but annoying as I reported this back in the beta stages via the feedback forms.

I If you need logs / more videos etc let me know.

what i do is click alt + tab without changing of window, just press alt + tab and realese it and it will be locked
so i can press window key botton to visit websites or discord while playing, and then back to the game clikcing on the game, and then just i press alt tab and release alt tab and then mouse is locked on age game

Thanks but that doesn’t work, did you watch the video ? The game window is the screen + the task bar on the top window. You are locked in game unless you click on the task bar. issue with this is if you go for idle vill and miss you end up shutting down your pc.


Any update with clamping mouse to the window ?

@GMEvangelos Update on this ? Rather awful support here as I reported this in the beta feedback and the official forms
