Android: Must drag cursor

ScummVM: Android-arm ed638bac (11/27/2017)
Device: Tablet Tf201
OS: Android 4.1.1

In the android version of scummvm, where you clicked on the screen was where the cursor click would register. In this latest buildbot if you tap anywhere on the screen then the cursor click will register where the cursor was last on the screen. So if the user wants to click on the left side of the screen they must drag the cursor to the left side and then click.

I am not sure which version I prefer.

For playing myst I would prefer the old behavior since I can just click on the left side of the screen to turn left instead of first dragging the hand cursor to the left.

But on games like "I have no mouth" where it is very easy to miss click and the user is often chaining together 2 clicks in a row (pick up the item and then use it) it would actually be more useful to have the current behavior since a click is not registered until the user is ready.

Thanks for your report! This is an intentional feature but is buried in a bad UI hack. Take a look at the wiki on Android for more information. I certainly plan on addressing this unintuitive default behaviour in the future as I work on Android, but it is not a defect that it is doing what it is doing.
