Hey all,

Just got a 2nd monitor and I'd like for my mouse to not go to the second monitor while AoT is launched, but that isn't the case. I'm wondering if anyone else has a solution or also has this issue...

I have tried using Dual Monitor Tools and having a hotkey to lock the cursor to the current screen. That works while I'm on my desktop, but when AoT launches the cursor is able to span both screens then.

I do play in windowed mode, but unchecking that box in AoT options changed nothing.

Any advice?

Thanks!

I have my 2nd monitor setup diagonally from my main monitor, this reduces the chance of the cursor going to the other screen.

Well that's a ghetto solution right there :D

Actually, DMT should do this just fine. Which OS are you on?

Dude imo Dual Monitor Tools sux even more than Atlantean and Norse combined in 1.05 patch :P

I tried it and dropped it because it was doing the same thing you said.

Then I found something else: Cursor Lock

I am able to play AOT ( in windowed mode ) with 2 screens by using the " STRICT MODE" of this tool.
You need to make a hotkey for disabling the Lock though, other wise your trapped in 1 monitor unless you shut off the App.
