Hi everyone,

just fixed the rubberband crashes. They were due to anchor1 and anchor2 being uninitialized. This was the case in Enigma 1.21 as well, but no bug in this respect was ever reported for 1.21.

Hi everyone,

Sidney and I did some more tests, and it turns out that the mouse event problem is caused by a feature of VirtualBox, called "mouse integration". It is used to combine the desktop of the host and of VirtualBox to a single desktop, and obviously confuses SDL2. It can be turned off. Without mouse integration, Enigma works fine. We therefore think that no further action is necessary on our side, except maybe somewhere a note that virtualization and mouse integration might break the game.

Another bug has been reported by Georg: Rubberbands cause Enigma to crash, but only on Windows 10, not on Linux, and not even on Wine. Diagnosis is ongoing. If someone can hand me a backtrace, this would be great! (Example in case: Just load Ariadne. Enigma will crash and shut down without error messages or relevant log entries. Wires are not affected.)

I wrote a first draft of a manual relative mouse mode, in branch "alternative-mouse-input-1.3". You find the new button in the options menu,

Could you check if the "slow"-mode at least works for you? Thank you in advance.

"Slow" mode works to some degree. In that mode, I have some control over the mouse, but it is is finicky to an unusable degree. I find it hard to describe exactly what it is doing. Sometimes it seems as if I move the mouse down, the ball moves up, I move the mouse up, the ball moves up, I move the mouse right, the ball moves right, I move the mouse left the ball moves right. But it isn't that clear-cut, if I move the mouse quickly, down, for example, the ball might move down. Mostly it seems like the ball responds erratically to the mouse movement. I can get the mouse outside of the Enigma window, in which case I get mouse events showing again in the log, this time with numbers in the minus to plus 300 range.

With all that, if I set the mouse speed to anything higher than 1, the mouse moves too quickly and erratically for me to do anything at all with it.
