Issue description
Windows 10 OS, radeonHD4600, Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q8300

After installing the game then the update then Libertatis(1.1.2(most actual update)), the game started normally and all seemed well until the menu appeared. When I moved the mouse even 1/16th of an inch the mouse cursor move all the way across the monitor and not necessarily in the direction I was moving the mouse. The cursor was impossible to control and I was unable to position it over any of the menu items. The cursor would just go off the edge of the screen, and leave trails, with the slightest movement of the mouse. That's as far as I got. I had to open task manager in order to exit the game. Made right click on Icon, choosed compatibility, disabled dpi scaling, doesnt glitch as much but every few seconds and only on fullscreen.

The game is a cd version from a magazine that I bought too many years ago that worked well on windows xp or 98... can't remember.
Steps to reproduce this issue
Install game, install update, install Libertatis, start game and wait for menu to appear, try to use mouse.

Yes same as well for me, if you play it in windowed mode (Alt-Enter) it goes away but thats kind of unncaeptable and the problem seems to have existed since 2015, would love for it to be fixed.

This bug hasn't ever been fixed. Disabling "DPI Scaling" via Compatibility doesn't fix it for me either. Very frustrating to have to play this in a window.
