I have checked above on 2 setups - Workbench 3.X on Amiga Forever 9 and AmiKit XE. I have ensured Direct3D is enabled (tried both 9 and 11) in each configuration. Subsequently, I have tried screen dragging with softsprite enabled and also disabled (rebooted after each change); however, softsprite had no effect on below -

Workbench 3.X: Once I drag the screen and move the mouse up, the cursor is visible on the upper screen (i.e. Workbench) and works just fine. However, the cursor becomes invisible once I move the mouse down to the lower screen (i.e. ChaosPro).

AmiKit XE: Once I drag the screen and move the mouse up, the cursor still moves inside the lower screen (i.e. ChaosPro). However, the actual mouse movements and clicks happen on the upper screen (i.e. Workbench). In other words, I can blindly navigate on the Workbench while the cursor continues to move in ChaosPro screen.

Edit: Attached a configuration file, a crash log, and relevant screenshots from Workbench 3.X -
  • AF9_cursor_problem: Screen dragging is broken as described above with this configuration.
  • AF9_crash: As soon as I drag the screen, WinUAE crashes with window Select Arabuusimiehet.WinUAE.

I do not wish to hijack the P96 thread if this is no longer related to P96 - please advise if it needs to be moved to the WinUAE section.
