Mouse camera movement only works half...

Postby kappagurka » Mon Jul 11, 2016 4:06 pm

I installed 1.8.0 myth 2 with the fallen levels v2 and the textures pack.
I started myth2.exe and the game works fine on my personal desktop computer.
On my laptop I have the same installation, but for some vague reason there is a problem with the mouse camera movement...
When the game starts, i move my mouse on the upper part of my screen and left side of my screen, the camera moves to both directions. But when i move my mouse to the lower part or the right side of my screen the camera refuses to move.
Together with this mouse problem i seem to have no mini map at all....
Pressing the shortcutkey TAB does not bring it up either.

P.S.: i disabled the touchpad but that did not solve the problem.

By running myth II old.exe i did get the camera controls back but it ofcourse reverts the game back to 1.7.1...

Thanks for answering in short notice guys. I have managed to fix my problem.
The drivers are updated and the laptop could run the game on the old version fine. But just in case i installed everything that was touchpad and mouse related fresh on my laptop from the factory site. Thanks again for reminding that it is always a good idea to update drivers Godzfire. But too bad it did not change anything for me. Then later i changed my DPI scaling settings like Melekor suggested. I did that by following these procedures that was on the official microsoft helpsite:
You can specify the scaling to use for text and UI elements by following these steps:

1. In Control Panel, click Appearance And Personalization.

2.Under the Display heading, click Make Text And Other Items Larger Or Smaller.

3.The default scaling options allow you to choose a 100-percent scale (the default), a 125-percent scale, or a 150-percent scale. To use one of these scaling options, make a selection, and then click Apply.

My settings were for some reason at 125 percent. This fixed my problem. Thanks a bunch!! Admin can close this thread now.

Go to your laptop maker's website and make sure all of your hardware drivers are up to date, especially your graphics card. Also check for BIOS updates.

Sounds like the DPI scaling issue making the game window larger than your monitor, which we fixed in 1.8.1

-run in full screen mode
-disable DPI scaling for myth or for the entire system
-use 1.8.1
