Cursor jumps when clicking after Alt+Tab in fullscreen mode (minor issue)

Recommended Posts

Reproduction steps:

1. Run the game in fullscreen mode

2. Alt+Tab to another window

3. Alt+Tab back to Broken Age

4. Press any mouse button


The cursor jumps to another location and the game reacts as if the click had occured at that location.

Additional information:

* After step 3, the cursor can be moved freely and the game seems to register the location of the cursor correctly (cursor icon changes when hovering over room exit etc.)

* The cursor jumps as soon as you press the button (you don't have to release it first).

* As far as I've seen, the behavior is deterministic in the sense that moving the cursor to a specific location before step 4 always makes it jump to the same location.

* If you repeat the steps 2.-4. over and over again without moving the mouse, you eventually reach a fixed point (the cursor does not jump from that location.) However, moving to one such fixed point manually and clicking will still trigger the jumping.

* The behavior is independent of the chosen fullscreen resolution. I could reproduce it at five different resolutions, including the native resolution of my primary display.

* Changing the Letterbox Mode has no effect.

* The issue also sometimes occurs when changing the fullscreen resolution in-game. There doesn't seem to be a clear pattern when this happens, but it's only in about 2 out of 5 cases.
