Mouse cursor only covers 2/3 of game screen

    Hi,

    Windows 10. I have the game running and can start a new game. The problem is that my mouse cursor hits an invisible barrier about 2/3 to the right and down.

    For example, in the video options screen I can't click 'apply' because my mouse won't go that far.

    This is the first I have seen a problem like this. The game is running in 800x600. I have turned scaling on and off. I even changed the resolution of the monitor outside of the game.

    I tried playing in windowed mode but the resolution is all messed up and it flickers and crashes.

    Thanks

Yuck. Two thoughts....

    First, have you adjusted graphics settings for both mm9.exe and lithtech.exe? I'm hoping you haven't because this sounds the most plausible explanation...

    ... and the easiest to address. My other thought is that it might be a problem with your drivers, and that would be unpleasant to track down and fix.

Graphics settings?

    Hmmm, not sure what you mean by adjusted graphics settings.

    I had to change the screen/bit depth to 32 to get it to work at all.

    I am using compatibility mode xp sp3, 1.3a, and Mok's cshell. Oh I also downloaded a fullscreen fix file which made it playable.

    I think those are all the changes I made.

    Please let me know if there are other things I can try.

OK. So when you applied compatibility mode...

    lithtech.exe is the graphics engine. Come of the Lithtech 2 games incorporated that with the game engine in a single executable file. NWC did not, so you need to apply settings to both.

    Yes, I did. XP sp3.

    I normally just open the game from Lithtech. The mm9 launcher works and yields the same mouse issue.

    Run as administrator is checked as well for both.

I'm out of easy suggestions, then....

    Something in the control chain is out of sorts. It could be the drivers. It might be some new hardware twist that Mok didn't code for. It might be a deficiency in that screen fix. Or something beyond my imaging.

    If/when you get it figured out, please share it here. Thanks.

Fixed it (sort of)

    Thanks for the help.

    I uninstalled the 'fullscreen fix' then played around with making it windowed again.

    It doesn't seem to crash anymore when windowed (at least I can get to character creation). I must have changed something for the better between now and when I first tried.

    I do need to lower the resolution on my monitor first or it ends up being tiny but at least it works.

    It's too bad the fullscreen fix is no good for me.

New mouse problem
11/22/2016, 11:48:27

    So I got it to play in windowed mode. Only problem is that I am defaulting to staring at the floor. With effort, and dropping the mouse sensitivity down I can look straight ahead and move around with the arrow keys. As soon as I touch the mouse again though I look straight down at the floor again.
