Please disable click-to-drag resizing windows
« on: February 27, 2017, 04:17:26 PM »
First off, I'm very excited to see the game progressing, and can't wait to play the final polished version.

I would like to make a small suggestion for the game in windowed mode. It's fantastic that you support both full screen and windowed modes. Some modern games by allegedly AAA developers don't support windowed gaming.

However, some Arcen titles have quirk I find annoying. If I click accidentally at the window borders, it will do the default operating system thing and start to resize the window. This tends to to hitch my system for a little bit. It would be great if you could disable drag-to-resize like you do in Tidalis or A Valley without Wind.

Thanks for your consideration.

Thanks!

* Updated the game to no longer allow for drag-resizing the window, since that can wind up really confusing things when you're trying to click near the edge of a window.

I actually like being able to drag/resize my windows, since I have multiple monitors that are different sizes, and "large" on one monitor is "too small" on the other. And the easiest thing to do is drag/resize. However, I'm open to this as long as there's another easy way to accomplish the same thing.

Does dragging it to the top of your screen work like it does with Windows? In Windows, if you drag a window to the top of your screen it maximizes it on that monitor.

We always have settings for letting you change the size of your windows, since we also have multiple monitors with various resolutions.  Right now those aren't exposed in the GUI all that well, but they are there under the hood in the settings files.
