Title: Fatal error: error initializing mouse
Post by: janichbumbelby on February 01, 2014, 04:52:18 PM
On opening the game, an error message (in the thread title) appears. The game does not launch.

I'm on one of those tablet-style laptops with touchscreen.
windows 8
intel core i3-4010y cpu @ 1.3 ghz 1.3 ghz
4gig ram

I've been in touch with Andy Hull about it. We're both at a loss, and I haven't been able to find examples of anyone else having this problem. Any ideas?

I'm guessing the touchscreen part is what's doing it, one way or another

is it a laptop with a touchpad mouse or do you just use the screen?

have you tried plugging a usb mouse in and then launching the game?

It's both. The keyboard is a 'docking station' so when it's detached you only use the touchscreen.

I don't have a USB mouse.

I think it's incompatible hardware.

The game wasn't made for PCs with touchscreens in mind, so it gets confused like that.

It's a bug, not a feature. :P

(And by PC, I mean anything that can run on a x86 or a 64x system like Spelunky, even if it's a tablet or a hybrid PC.)
