Ctrl-click mode stuck

Bug? In windows, in windowed mode, the ctrl-click mode will get stay on if I click outside of the window into a different application (I suppose only while holding ctrl).

When I return to TCD, it's still in the ctr-click mode even though I've released ctrl. It's resolved by tapping ctrl again, but this isn't very intuitive. It was extremely confusing the first time it happened. Plus I'm pretty sure I've seen cases where tapping control won't change it. Sorry if this is a duplicate; I've been out of the loop for a while....

Re: Ctrl-click mode stuck

Sounds more like a windows issue than the game issue. I remember a similar thing with a different game but was actually able to be used as an exploit.

Re: Ctrl-click mode stuck

Perhaps, but seems like it's something that could be handled here regardless (e.g. detecting when mouse leaves window and turning it off).

Re: Ctrl-click mode stuck

If it gets stuck and pressing 'ctrl' doesn't work try pressing 'alt' instead as this also toggles the eye-dropper and in my experience gets stuck when you 'alt-tab' in and out.

Arggg!  Yeah, I beat my head against this one way back when with Josh... I thought I figured it out, but I guess not.

Will take another look.

Re: Ctrl-click mode stuck

I can confirm that there is an issue with the ctrl key when alt-tabbing in windowed mode.

Re: Ctrl-click mode stuck

I found that the alt key also also triggers the ctrl-click mode.  Hope that helps. smile
