#8306 closed patch

Grabbing the mouse cursor (incomplete)

Reported by: eriktorbjorn Owned by: Kirben
Priority: normal Component: Graphics

Game: Full Throttle

Description

With the action scenes in Full Throttle starting to come alive, perhaps it would be useful if ScummVM could be made to restrict the mouse cursor within the game window, without having to force the user to switch to fullscreen mode.

The way I would use such a feature, as a player, would be that when an action sequence started I would use a hotkey to turn the grabbing on, and when the action sequence had finished I would release it. Of course, it could be made automatic, but if so I think it should be an option. I don't think we should force it onto the player.

The actual grabbing is trivial to achieve with the SDL backend. In fact, it used to be a standard feature in the games Loki Software ported to Linux. The patch implements the backend changes, but does not add a hotkey or config option for it.
