Is there a way to turn off screen edge mouse scroll?

Post by TokyoDan »

When my mouse is at an edge of the battlefield map it cause the map to scroll. Is there a way to turn that off so that I can either use the WSAD keys or a mouse-button-down drag?

WASD does not work, as A is used for Ranged attack and S for Strategic move order mode. There is currently no rebinding.

There is also no mouse-down-drag option for moving the map. Edgescroll and Arrow Keys are the only ways to scroll the main view.

I wish it didn't scroll after I leave the app. I'm new to this app, so maybe I'm missing something. But now when I leave the app to read the manual or do something else, the map keeps scrolling and scrolling.

Seems like I've had other apps that as soon as I click on another window and make it the active window then the scrolling stops.

No way to disable edge scroll.
However, if you Alt+Tab out of the game, mouse movements should no longer be registered.

My prefered display mode for all games is "bordless window Fullscreen":
- when you tab out, the game will no longer receive input
- unlike normal Fullscreen, there is no transition period as the Desktop or game reaquires sole access to the GPU - both are just part of the Windowing System, like Firefox and Libre Office.

Edgescroll and Arrow Keys are the only ways to scroll the main view.
Though not "scrolling" per se, Minimap [F8] is also an option.
