Windows 7: Window Mode - Clicks Off

05 Apr 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64x
Window Mode - Clicks Off

I use window mode to get better fps, since I need as much fps I can get.
Anyways, When I move my mouse fast. I see my cursor slightly, and it if I click while moving my mouse (in a fast motion) it clicks off the game, on to the desktop or if programs are running beside the game.

So then I have to click back on the game, and ususally by that time. I'm dead. Since it only happens when I move my mouse fast.

The games I know that it happens to is:
Team Fortress 2
Left 4 Dead
Counter Strike: Source

But I don't think it would be any different for any other game running in window mode.

So ya, is there a fix so it doesn't click off the game when moving the mouse fast and clicking? You don't even have to move it that fast too.

Unfortunately, I doubt it - the whole point of Windowed-mode versus full screen is that in Window mode you *do* get to retain interactivity with your underlying OS - and in FS you do not.

What you are asking for is the features and functionality of FS mode in Windowed-mode - and for that you'll need to talk to the game developers about it, in case they have some command-line options that you can use or something.
