Cursor Problems

So I installed Warcraft III on my Ubuntu 13.10 with PlayOnLinux and Wine. My monitor is 1366x768. The game settings doesn't have that option, so I played with 1024x768. In this resolution, the cursor keeps getting out of the game. Is there anyway to disable the mouse from getting off the game? It's really annoying.

Thanks! :D

Did you try this option?

Configure > Select your game > Configure Wine > Tab Graphics > check Automatically capture the mouse in full-screen windows.

And if i were you i would change the desktop size to the game size.


P.S. I'm quite new to this software. So don't be suprised when its not the right suggestion to solve this. :-)

Also make sure you are using a virtual desktop
  1. PlayOnLinux
  2. Configure
  3. Wine Tab
  4. Wine Configuration
  5. Graphics Tab
  6. Check "Use Virtual Desktop"
  7. Resolution:  1366x768
Now you should be able to see that available resolution in game
