  • Problem Description

    Either while previewing with Chrome or Node-Webkit, when you release the Left Mouse Button and then the Right Mouse Button very quickly, the mouse pointer flickers, displaying the normal mouse pointer instead of what it was set to previously.

    Attach a Capx

    No Capx.

    Steps to Reproduce Bug: In Chrome or Node-Webkit either Preview or Exported

    • Step 1: Left-click and hold
    • Step 2: Right-click and hold
    • Step 3: Release left click then right click quickly.

    Observed Result

    Mouse pointer flickers and changes back to normal pointer. (If an "every tick" event changes it to what it should normally be.

    If no such event is present then the pointer just sits there as a normal pointer and changes back only when moved.

    Expected Result

    It should always stick to what it's been defined to be, which is either a sprite, an animated sprite or invisible.

  • I don't see this behavior in node-webkit using one of my own .capx, but then your instructions are not exactly full or clear.

    It would help if you have a ,capx that shows this behavior, I think.

  • I don't think there is a need for a specific .capx.

    Just set a custom mouse pointer with a sprite.

    Then in Node-Webkit or Chrome: Hold down both mouse buttons, then quickly release both Left button first and Right button after.

    The mouse pointer changes back to the normal one.

    Ashley Could you tell if this is an actual bug and if it can be fixed? Like with a temporary solution while waiting for the official fix?

  • Closing, please follow the guidelines and attach a .capx.

  • Here is a simple .capx I made and with which I can recreate the issue. Ashley


    Once again, here's how to do it:

    Hold down both mouse buttons, then release Left button first and Right button after.

    I'm surprised nobody mentioned it before.

  • It doesn't happen in Firefox, and we set the cursor style for the whole game, so I think this is a Chrome bug. Sorry, nothing we can do, you might want to report it to Google.

  • Ooops. I opened a new post like you asked, I saw afterward it went to "closed bugs".
