      Default Question on mouse movement during gameplay

      I haven't bought the game yet and was wondering about the mouse movement. Does the game trap your mouse within the game window in windowed mode, or can you simply move the mouse cursor outside the game window without using alt-tab?

      You must alt-tab to use your mouse on the desktop. I'm pretty sure that goes for most windowed games.

      Thanks for teh fast reply.
      I don't know about most. Most of the games I own allows the free mouse movement which is handy since I have two screens. This allows me to do web searches, forum help or even have multiple games running at the same time. My computer can actually run five instances of Anarchy Online at the same, time which is handy.

      you cannot multitask with it anyway, once you click away from the game and it has input focus taken off it it stops until it is active and has focus again.

      The best that can be done is that if you have a second monitor, using x3 in fullscreen on one monitor leaves the other free for looking at, if not browsing and interacting with. I found it useful when i was learning a little scripting to have the manual on one screen and the game with the script i'm writing on the other
