cursor disappears in full screen mode
« on: March 10, 2018, 02:07:23 pm »

I notice that if I use the 1920x1080 full screen mode, the cursor disappears (which makes it very hard to navigate the menu.)
 
For most of what I do, I'm content to TAB from button to button until the one I need is the active element. And I can edit eng.cfg to restore a screen resolution that gets my mouse cursor back. But the thought occurred to me that there might be a way to keep the cursor in full screen (or at least maybe toggle it on and off so it's out of the way when I screen capture a scene for video. )

Since recording in 1920x1080 is highly desirable for video making (it avoids the glitches introduced by stretching the video to match the rest of the scenes) I'm very interested in learning how to keep my mouse cursor if it is possible.

You mean it does not appear when there's a UI window shown? Multimonitor setup?

as a matter  of fact, I am using 2 monitors. But Outerra can't be dragged to the other monitor. I have Outerra installed on 2 different computers, and the cursor disappears on both of them when I enter full screen mode. (Both computers use 2 monitors)

Would it not work the same if I only used one monitor?

So you are not referring to a normal FPS mode, right? Fullscreen mode means the mouse becomes exclusive and is not shown since the mouse now controls the camera and no longer becomes limited by screen edges, unless there's an UI shown that needs interaction.

I tested it and mouse cursor still shows in fullscreen mode when menu is on. Might be a driver problem?
