Description Ant P. 2013-08-04 04:07:22 CDT
When I have the game window touching (or overlapping) the edge of the screen, moving the mouse far enough in that direction stops it dead. Fullscreen mode works fine, and a 1 pixel gap or window border is enough to prevent it happening.

I'm not sure if this can be worked around in Odamex itself; exactly the same thing is happening in UT2004 also so it's either a bug in SDL or my window manager.

I'll submit it here anyway for reference, just in case someone else ends up having the same problem.

Very old bug - probably fixed with SDL2. Haven't heard anything about it. Closing as fixed.
