Hi folks,

ich have the problem when I start wine from wahcade, only the mouse works. Keyboard inputs are not detected. Works fine when starting wine without wahcade. What could be the issue here?

Does nobody have this Problem? How do you start the games?

Please see my reply here. Perhaps not a solution but i haven't tried a game which required keyboard input through wine.

What is an example?

Harvey's new Eyes, the whole deponia series, etc. Space doesn't work, Escape doesn't work so the game has to be shut down from somewhere else, not fine :(

I have the same problem, and other one with wine and the fullscreen, but i think that is wine's and the current game problem, not a wahcade problem.....can be?

Example. with commandos2, i launch the game correctly but if i move the mouse out of the screen limit, the image "goes" out and i see all black, if i move the cursor to the up-left again, i see the game again. Then, when start playing and i open the options screen, the image is correctly "blocked". But this "error" not do always and equal with all the games.


PD: Sorry for my english

Octtoman does this address your issue?

I would say the wine "fullscreen" is another resolution than the native fullscreen. And so the mouse can scroll.

2solutions: Either change the one resolution so that they match(better) or let wine create a virtual workspace(setting in wine cfg)

Hi, i don't saw your message, sorry.

It's complicated, i canĀ“t set manually the wine resolution beacuse i did my wahcade in portable mode, i can run at different resolutions, all the other systems (mame, nes, master system, dosbox, etc run streched perfectly, but the "wine games", some run well, but others run with this resolution and/or keyboard problem.

Thank you both for answering!
