No.

Or have window to lock mouse inside?
My window often moves if mouse is out of it, it's very inconvenient in a battle.


Yes, it's possible, i found a solution. If it works correctly without problems with WCS, i upload this tool here and write a short step-by-step instruction. Stand by.

Here we go, WCS Mouse Trap instructions:

Simply start WCS_Mouse-Trap.exe, that's it. The tool works in full automatic mode and searching automatically for the WCS window. If you tab from WCS to another window, the mouse trap will automatically disabled and if you switch back to the WCS window the mouse trap will automatically enabled.

It have a little systray context menu with the following features:

Enable/disable: This means you can enable/disable the mouse trap manually at any time. If disabled, the automatic mode is also disabled. You can also use Ctrl+Alt+F9.

Exit: No explanation needed i think. ;) You can also use Ctrl+Alt+F10.

Tested with Win XP/32 and Win 7/64.

Please give feedback.

Sorry for late answer.
I played some time on other computer with no problem. after that I transfer Volition dir back.
And now I can play fullscreen. But only to the moment I press Esc, never mind where. After that same crash. Now I think maybe it is something with dialog window with tips on startup. Seems like I disabled it. But Esc menu cases same problem (in fullscreen).
Does that spot some light to you on where to look for solution?
And your tool works - mouse captured! )

Maybe yes. With this info i try to find the problem. It seems now, that the dialogue window itself is the problem.

Ok forget it, my changes causes big problems.

I spent some time the last 2 days for investigate this issue and what i found are only bad news! It seems that there are massive problems with FSO games and Intel graphics. The Diaspora team wrote under requirements:

"(Integrated INTEL graphics will not work)"

WCS Requirements updated:

Sorry, i wished i can give you better news but i can't. :shock:

FSO has a command line option to disable shaders, -no_glsl that usually helps with intel integrated cards. Although the WCS launcher doesn't allow you to specify command line options, it might still work if you manually input the command through a shortcut to wcsaga.exe (or launching the game using the command terminal itslef).

I can't confirm this right now, I'm not on a Windows rig.

And the problem is only with dialogs in fullscreen.. actually 1 dialog for Esc key, for quit and restart.. One can play without using Esc, but strange thing that nothing can be done to workaround this.
