Summary0003011: [antipodes] Issue with using mouse as flight controller
DescriptionOkay, so, 2 months back chief mentioned a scaling issue over IRC with mouse controls, and I was able to confirm the behavior. I haven't given it much attention until about now, which appears to be still in place.

I did a quick test against r10276, and everything seems alright for --windowed mode, but on fullscreen mode the mouse appears to be not only scaled down, but also seems to hit the corners of a screen and won't allow further turning in that direction. Menu UI appears to be fine.

It looks like, for some reason, relative mouse mode is not enabled for fullscreen mode. I uploaded a patch which resolves this issue.

Ok, the mouse clamping seems to have been resolved in 3011.patch, but the scaling vs. resolution is still present.

Zacam has mentioned over IRC that FSO retains control of the system cursor when windowed and paused, unlike with trunk which releases it.

We've worked out a plan to try and make a LUA script to output the mouse deltas vs. player orientation deltas to a file. That way we can test what trunk does and compare it to what AP does, across the various resolutions.

Related, I made a poll to see if further action should be made to combat the scaling/ramping vs. resolution. http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=86996.0
