(Solved) Cursor off-set/not working in fullscreen

Post by NightThastus » 25 Jan 2017, 00:22

OpenMW: 0.41
OS: Windows 10 Home 64-bit
Screen: 144Hz, 2560x1440

I installed Morrowind fresh via Steam. (And ran it once just for setup)

I then ran the OpenMW installer executable. I found the Morrowind.esm file. I installed OpenMW.

I then ran the OpenMW Launcher, set my preferences, and then launched the game.

If I'm not in full-screen, everything works fine.

If I am in fullscreen, my cursor isn't where it appears to be. So if I'm hovering over a button I can't actually click it, I need to hover over quite a ways down and to the right. The main menu buttons don't even seem to work, I just know that the options menu works this way.

Thanks for any help!

There is a known issue with display scaling in Windows 10 messing up the game window. Try this:
I found that checking the box for "disable scaling on high dpi displays" in the compatibility tab in the file properties menu for the launcher shortcut will make the game display normally
