    I use the Eye Tracker 4C and have recently discovered that the Warp on Mouse Move (when pointing the mouse cursor) only works if I have a window open in the foreground on my monitor. If I have a blank screen with the exception of the desktop icons, is this normal behaviour for the mouse warp on move function, if I warp only on pointing the mouse. The warp on key press function does work no matter what.

    I have found the cause of the problem. It appears to be Nvidia GeForce Experience causing the problem. If you switch Shadowplay off in Nvidia GeForce Experience, the Warp on Mouse Move function works irrespective of whether or not an application is open in windowed mode on the desktop.

    Tobii developers please take note.

    Please mark as solved for the problem encountered.

    Hi @leclightning58, thanks for your post.. Indeed we are aware of this issue with the GeForce Experience software. In fact, Mouse Warp will generally not work in a full-screen application by design, but as you pointed out, the Experience SW can also cause interference.

    In any event, I will add your comments to the development team for consideration to see if we can include a workaround in our own Software. Best Wishes.

    hi. Was this problem ever resolved? Mouse warp on mouse movement doesn’t work in xcom2 [full-screen].
    Any work around?

    Hi @stalledtime thanks for your query. I am afraid that for the time being, the only workaround solution we can recommend is that you run your game in maximised windowed mode. To improve this solution, you can remove the window title bar to make it essentially fullscreen.

    This can be accomplished through a variety of means but the simplest would be to use AutoHotKey and an appropriate script.
    Further links and info on this @ https://hackerspace.kinja.com/removing-the-windows-title-bar-with-autohotkey-1015709275

    Please do let us know how you get on and apologies for any inconvenience. Best Wishes.

    hi. I am aware of that solution but running xcom2 in windowed mode makes the game run really slow, even though Xcom doesn’t require too much resources!
    I’m sure it’s an easy fix if tobii try to fix it.
    Thank you

    Sorry to hear that, unfortunately, this is the only workaround we can suggest for the time being, but I will pass along your comments to the development team for further consideration.
