Issue description
On both of the latest versions of Arx Libertatis (I haven't tried any previous versions) I can't even progress past the main menu because the cursor is insanely sensitive. I've tried altering the mouse sensitivity both from the cfg.ini file (because I can't select the in-game options) and from the control panel, but neither option changes it at all.

I have the Steam version of Arx Fatalis and Windows 8.1 Pro 64xbit.
Steps to reproduce this issue
Nothing entered.

  1. "latest versions of Arx Libertatis" - just to be sure, that's 1.1.2, right?
  2. What kind of device are you using for mouse input? I've noticed problems under VirtualBox which afaik simulates an absolute pointer input device (like a touch screen). I haven't been able to reproduce any problems with relative pointer devices (aka actual mice).
  3. Does this happen with both fullscreen and windowed mode? You can toggle between them using Alt+Enter.
  4. Does this build change anything: (edit: latest development snapshots now also use SDL2) (run arx.exe - you might need to copy the files to you existing arx install)

Hello, this is the OP.

1 Yes, version 1.2.2 "Rhaa Movis". 2 I have a "Logitech B110 Optical USB Mouse". 3 It happens in fullscreen mode, but switching to windowed mode appears to fix it. Thanks! 4 That build works perfectly, even in fullscreen mode! Thanks!
