How Do I Make My Cursor Wraparound Like In Games Like PacMan On My Acer Chromebook 14 CB3-431? 1 Recommended Answer 6 Replies 6 Upvotes

I just got a new Acer Chromebook 14 CB3-431 and I installed Minecraft on it with the Linux Beta feature. The problem is that, instead of acting like a competent machine where something like Windows would let me continue moving my mouse to move my character in 360 degrees of motion, it acts like my mouse is outside the game at the same time as I'm playing it, so when it hits the borders of the screen, it doesn't let me continue unless I go into a menu, move my mouse to the opposite side of the screen, and then move in the game again. This is frustrating and not how any system is supposed to interact with a game. I understand that a chromebook is not specifically designed for gaming, but it let me install Minecraft without needing to mess with the terminal or anything, so it should at least have some basic quality-of-life features. What I need to know is how I can make it so my cursor either just doesn't interact with the borders when playing so it works like it should, or so it acts like the wraparound style of games like PacMan where the cursor going on the left-most side of the screen will eventually get teleported to the right-most side and the top-most would go to the bottom-most.

You have asked this in a Google forum.  Not sure why, but it appears that nothing there is associated with Google.

Well, I enabled it and restarted the chromebook since it said so, but the mouse still gets stopped by the borders of the screen when turning in the game as well as everywhere else. It seems like it didn't change anything.

with flags three things happen

a) you use one and forget that you activated

b) along comes the next update and your flag breaks something else but you say was working fine until i updated

c) the developers trash your flag the next update so no flag no fix
