Mousebox works only partially

Post by Yrogirg » Thu Jun 16, 2011 11:38 am

Sometimes when I start bzflag mouse controls allow only to move forward or to turn left. Backwords moving and right turning don't work. I have to restart bzflag, sometimes several times to make them working again.

64 bit ubuntu, bzflag 2.0.16 and 2.3

Check to see if you have a "set geometry" line in your configuration file. If you do, remove it and see if it works better.

I have the exact same problem with Ubuntu. When I toggle windowed/fullscreen by hitting f1 twice the problem goes away. Not sure what causes it.

There was none so I've added. I'm not sure, but it seems the problem is gone.

No, I was gonna say if it was there to remove it.

I understood, but it was never in my config. I added it two days ago and since then there has been no occurrence of that bug. Dunno if it actually helped.
