[PC] full screen and games that can't accept input in background

Post by gimxaddict » Sun Jul 22, 2018 4:56 am

Many games cannot take input when not in foreground, and in GIMX case where PC is the destination platform and the user will be using a keyboard, the "RawInput" window must be in foreground, so those games can't take any input.

And even for games that accept input in background, fullscreen is not possible as the "RawInput" must be in focus.

Is there some regular way to overcome this?

As far as I know there's Windows limitation about capturing mouse input in background but as always, there should be some tricky way to do that.

Unfortunately @Matlo is on holidays so for now you have to use other PC.

I'll try to add this in a future release.

This should be fixed in GIMX 7.8: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2704
Feedback is very welcome!
