OpenGL Mouse Capturing


When OpenGL runs in say a FPS game, the FPS captures the mouse and forces it to go to the center. This part is fine, but when you hit escape, for instance, and it goes into a menu screen, some games force the mouse to stay within the confines of the window, even when it's in windowed mode. Is there any way to disable this feature? I have wine set up to do what I want exactly, but some native Linux games will still do this.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

I realize this thread is from 2009 but I have the precise same question: how to uncapture the mouse from windowed OpenGL applications that capture the mouse?

Thanks.

Edit: failing a solution for releasing the mouse, is there at least a way to move the window on the screen?
