hows things? i try and run quake 4 and these days it starts off grand but as soon as the menu appears it goes from fullscreen to a maximized window and the focus goes away from it i.e. the mouse won't work in it anymore. I can alt-tab into it again and for a split second it will go to fullscreen and I can use the mouse but as soon as I stop moving the mouse it goes back to a window again. anyone know whats up with this? I remember something in Q2 called _windowed_mouse. dunno if its whats wrong but is there something similar in Q4? I'm using ubuntu hardy 64bit. like i said it worked grand yesterday.
Well I sorted a workaround for it. The resolution for both the desktop and Quake were the same 1024x768 so I changed the res of quake to 800x600 and it works perfectly just in case anyone has the same problem!
