Description

When the mouse-x axis is used to turn the player, pressing Alt+Tab when in-game to switch between applications will disable mouse turning completely on return.

My guess is that the state of the virtual Alt key is being changed inadvertently; it is possible to fix the problem by bringing down the console and using Alt+C (console clear).

History

#1 Updated by danij about 13 years ago

This appears to be a long standing issue as it is present in a build 1.8.6 I made yesterday. When I replace the DirectX input with Windows Messages the problem should disappear anyway.

#2 Updated by skyjake over 10 years ago

Should be fixed?

#3 Updated by danij over 10 years ago

No this still occurs. I've been thinking it could be our own alt_is_down state that is going out of sync. I'll see if there is anything I can do.

#4 Updated by skyjake over 10 years ago

Will be affected by the "qapp-based" changes. I think I'll add an event that tells the engine when focus is lost so that it can reset/expire modifier key states.

#5 Updated by skyjake over 10 years ago

Needs some more testing on a native Windows system.

#6 Updated by skyjake about 10 years ago

Mostly fixed for 1.9.8.
