Ok let's say I'm playing a game that's not in fullscreen for reasons like recording and for some reason Windows makes that game, not the active window I've lost good speedruns to this issue and this happens when I'm not recording as well

I am using Windows 10 64-bit

Depending upon your capture program then you can tell it to capture one specific window and nothing else. Alternatively I have not gone there for a while but you can have one application always have focus, I have not had to do it outside of actual code/terminal/kiosk stuff which is different but I did see it as a feature in a mouse jail program (programs designed for multiple screens where you want to keep the mouse from wandering in there) once.

Otherwise there are any number of things that can pull focus. I would have to look into your machine to see what goes. IM clients, updates and email notifications are usually good suspects here.

Do you have a touchscreen? I had a curious case the other day with a subtly broken one that randomly made the cursor dance all over the shop and click on things.

Yeah I have a touchscreen but It's working just fine and if the touchscreen was the issue it would minimize the window which it doesn't and it just happened when I had my mouse cursor on the game and it still happened I have Discord closed when I record so that's not the issue

  • Jayro @ Jayro:
    Eventhough the New 3DS XL is more powerful, I still feel like the DS Lite was a more polished system. It's a real shame that it never got an XL variant keeping the GBA slot. You'd have to go on AliExpress and buy an ML shell to give a DS phat the unofficial "DS Lite" treatment, and that's the best we'll ever get I'm afraid.

    The phat model had amazingly loud speakers tho.

    @Jayro, I don't see whats so special about the DS ML, its just a DS lite in a phat shell. At least the phat model had louder speakers, whereas the lite has a much better screen.

    They probably said "Hey, why not we combine the two together and make a 'new' DS to sell".
  • Veho @ Veho:
    It's a DS Lite in a slightly bigger DS Lite shell.

  • Veho @ Veho:
    It's not a Nintendo / iQue official product, it's a 3rd party custom.

    Nothing special about it other than it's more comfortable than the Lite
