Okay, I’m just about to give up. Some suggested the SVN snapshot might
offer a fix for this however, after trying my best to compile from svn I
give up! I had to install MSYS, ActivePerl (I assume this will work) and
then autoconf is complaining about Autom4te/C4che.pm. This is
ridiculous! I just want to display a fullscreen SDL app with the mouse
pointer suppressed and get accurate mouse click coordinates. Is SDL not
ready for prime time yet? I don’t mean this as an insult but this seems
like a fundamental problem that is making me wonder what I am doing
wrong over and over again.
sigh Does someone already have the latest SVN snapshot of 1.2 SDL for
win32? I’d like the developer libs and sdl.dll all ready to go (no
compile). I’ve spent half a day on this and there’s no guarantee that
"upgrading" will even fix this. My apologies, in advance, if this is
rubbing anyone the wrong way. I’m just getting VERY frustrated.
I really would like to use SDL, but the support for it seems rather
lacking. If I was trying to do something fancy with OpenGL I could
understand the slow response. But trying to get a suppressed mouse to
register clicks correctly?
One last wave of asking for help and then I give up. I’ll have to use
direct win32 calls and scrap SDL as not being mature enough (which is
what my customer is interpreting what I am telling him about the snafu).
Would updating my ticket in bugzilla get a quicker response? Is there
another official response path that I can go? I’m willing to put in as
much effort as I can to assist but I’m not sure how to get assistance.
Other than the ticket assigned to someone on the same day I posted it
(8/23), nothing has happened to the ticket since I first put it in.------------------------

Why are you calling SDL_ShowCursor hiding and showing in
your main loop ?
So that I can see where the mouse cursor is at so I know where I am
clicking. Otherwise, in fullscreen mode, how am I going to know where I
am clicking if I dont cycle it like that (if there’s a better way,
please let me know)?
Please checkout also the latest SDL SVN version.
sigh I tried that and followed the instruction at:
I installed MSYS but when I go into the SDL directory and try to issue
./configure I get an error “sh: ./configure no such file or directory”.
There is no configure script in the 1.2 SVN checked out tree that I
