Native mouselock for GameMaker. Perfect for games with screen-space mouse aiming - no more need to worry about the game not restricting the mouse position quickly enough and user clicking outside the window - with this extension the mouse cannot escape the specified region, as it uses OS-level functionality to confine it.

Included functions:

  • display_mouse_lock(x, y, width, height)
  • display_mouse_unlock()
  • display_mouse_bounds() : Returns the current mouse bounds as an array.

Package contents:

  • The extension itself.
  • Sample project (shown on the GIF).
  • C++ source code.
