Author Topic: weird mouse movement bug in editor when using touchpad  (Read 873 times)

hey guys,

sorry if this is not the right place...i wasn't sure where to post this.

to reproduce this bug:

- on windows 10 open AGS on a laptop (i'm using the surface pro 4) with a touchpad and then open any script
- move the mouse cursor over the open script windows using a touchpad

result:

- while moving, the mouse cursor keeps changing back and forth from the "edit text" icon to an arrow icon really quickly
- as a result of this the mouse cursor lags heavily

any idea how i can avoid this?

cheers
daniel

I did the same observation a while ago. I'm using Windows 7 and AGS 3.4.0.
It's not very "clean" but it does not cause any lag or speed issue by my side...

I reported that same observation as a bug (http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forums/index.php?issue=832.0) a few weeks ago. Since then I only use the mouse for scripting in AGS
CW told me it has to do with the software scintilla they used for the scripting part.

You mean you only see this with a trackpad/mousepad ?
I see this always, with a mouse or with a touchpad... So I'd tend to say it has nothing to do with the input device, but with the mouse cursor display (static image is the "edit" cursor, moving image is the arrow / whereas the image should always be an "edit" cursor inside a text window).

Daniel, does the lag happens with another input device ?

For me, the mouse cursor changes back and forth no matter what input I use.
The difference is that the trackpad lags when that happens, sometimes recording input with a few seconds delay. And with my corded logitech mouse, it doesn't affect performance but the icon switching is still there.
I actually noticed this too but never reported it since it's not a deal-breaking issue but it would be nice if it got fixed.

now that you mention it, you're right...the cursor keeps changing with a mouse as well but there is not lag like there is with the touchpad.

i really hope this can be fixed. i started using a mouse on my tablet now to avoid the issue but i'd really like to avoid having to drag a mouse with me all the time. after all the idea of a tablet like the surface is mobility;P

Try disabling "Enhance pointer precision" in Windows10 settings and see if that helps.

No, that doesn't fix it.
