[3.5.1 Raspbian] mouse buttons sometimes unresponsive

Postby Csonicgo » Fri Aug 31, 2018 11:30 pm

If I use the mouse to rotate the player left for a while, then try to fire, it will not register. if I move a little to the right, I can fire the weapon. It's very frustrating in MAP10 where turning to the left in a circle is common. I will alt-tab when this happens and notice the mouse cursor is hugging the left of the screen.

This is, in part, a problem with Raspbian's default settings. For some reason, it does something to window borders that makes it so that GZDoom won't recognize mouse input when the mouse is touching the sides of the window. You have to tweak the window manager's configuration to disable this stupid "feature".
That said, GZDoom should also be locking the mouse to the center of the window, so that part is GZDoom's fault.

Well. what is that config setting? Would have been nice to know, because I can't find anything about it.
