Mouse/Trackball cursor/issues when launching from AM
« on: July 09, 2021, 01:28:26 PM »
Running 2.6.1 on a Pi4.

I noticed whenever I play any MAME core that there is a black "X" cursor that the trackball moves about the screen instead of being recognized by MAME. Note that this does not happen when I launch from Emulation Station, only Attract Mode.

Relevant cfg info:

general
   language             en
   exit_command         
   exit_message         
   default_font         FreeSans
   font_path            /usr/share/fonts/;$HOME/.fonts/
   screen_saver_timeout 600
   displays_menu_exit   no
   hide_brackets        no
   startup_mode         displays_menu
   confirm_favourites   yes
   confirm_exit         yes
   mouse_threshold      10
   joystick_threshold   75
   window_mode          fullscreen
   filter_wrap_mode     default
   track_usage          no
   multiple_monitors    no
   smooth_images        yes
   selection_max_step   128
   selection_speed_ms   40
   move_mouse_on_launch yes
   scrape_snaps         yes
   scrape_marquees      yes
   scrape_flyers        yes
   scrape_wheels        yes
   scrape_fanart        no
   scrape_videos        no
   scrape_overview      yes
   thegamesdb_key       
   power_saving         no
   video_decoder        software
   menu_prompt          Displays Menu
   menu_layout          cosmo-mainmenu
   image_cache_mbytes   100


Anyone got any ideas?

maybe "non-blocking-mode" works. Here
AM Version : 2.6.1
Input : Mad Catz Brawlstick; Mouse; Keyboard; Xbox360 Wireless
Cabinet : Yes
OS : Windows10 Pro
System : Dell Precision T3500 ; Intel X5650 ; 12GB RAM

Unfortunately Non-Blocking-Mode-Wait 1-5 and/or Res-Fix did not correct the situation.

Thanks for your response
