mouse problem help
HI Loaded the game successfully but my mouse will not work consistently. When I move the mouse cursor it goes only so far and darts back to the corner of the screen. Tried reinstalling the game but to no avail. Even replaced the batteries in the wireless mouse.Any ideas would be appreciated - can't play the game otherwise. Thanks

Hej forcurr,
you can check whether the DPI size on your computer is set to 100% (96 DPI).
If you are using Windows 7 or 8, to check the DPI settings please right-click anywhere on your desktop and select "Personalize". In the following window you find "See also --> Display" in the bottom left corner. There you can check whether all setting are set to 100% (Standard).
If you are using Windows XP, right-click on an empty area on your desktop and then choose "Properties" --> "Settings" --> "Advanced".

Hope that will do!

I got the exact same problem, but I won't start changing desktop settings, since I am using a 4 K screen and I need it to be set at 180% ... any other solutions? When I played the GOG version only hours ago, there was no problem like this. Switched to steam to get german audio...

Anyone know a solution to this that does not require setting DPI back to 100%? I also have a 4k monitor so switching DPI not very practical.

Ok, I have found something that fixed it for me:
Go to the install directory, right mouse click satinav.exe > properties > compatibility > TICK "disable display scling on high DPI settings"
All good now.
