#1103 closed defect

Mouse pointer behaviour bug renders the game unplayable

Reported by: SF/marconelly Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Engine: Sky
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Beneath a Steel Sky


* ScummVM version:

ScummVM 0.5.0 (Aug 2 2003 02:52:38)

* Bug details:

As soon as the game starts, it shows the Virgin title screen, then it automatically skips all the intro, and starts the game in the regular starting room. Mouse pointer, however, is being automatically pulled towards the lower right corner of the screen. This happens in both full screen and windowed mode, and basically renders the game unplayable as it's impossible to move the mouse. It also renders the Windows mouse unusable (when you alt-tab back to windows, pointer is stuck at the mentioned position on the screen) The only way to return the pointer to the normal behaviour is to exit from the SCUMMVM by pressing ALT+X.

Same mouse moving problem happens with all the supported games, however BASS has extra problem of automatically skipping the intro.

* Language of game:


* Version of game:

CD version and Floppy version, downloaded from ScummVM website.

* Platform and compiler:

Windows XP w/ SP1 (version 5.1.2600).

* Save game:


* Last working version:

Do you have a joystick connected to your system? If so, try removing it, and see if that helps.

Max i got the problem with the mouse again, too. But you apear to be right it's the joystick driver in Linux and Windows. (Seems to have been ported 1:1 :-D) Removing the joystick helps in most cases. And for the skipping intro, perhaps scummvm thinks the button on the joystick which means Esc is pressed.

True, it was the attached joystick that was making all the problems. Now that I've removed it, SCUMMVM and BASS both work perfectly.
