I'm having a strange problem with a game using Linux Dosbox. Using v0.74
The game in question is Word Rescue and Word Rescue Plus (both use same engine).
When I press the left or right arrow keys, the character moves left or right. However there are points in the game when the character just stops, like hitting an invisible wall. If I release the arrow key and press it again, the character continues moving.
It happens at the same points on the level. Almost. Sometimes it's this way or that by a few pixels.
I found out what's triggering it:
Keep pressing right key.
While pressing right key, press up to jump.
Release up when you start landing.
Right key was pressed all the time.
After a sec or so the character stops.
Release right key, press it again, the character starts moving again.
That's why it was happening "at the same points on the level". It was happening right after points where you had to jump)
The weird thing is, it only happens fullscreen.
It doesn't happen on Windows, neither windowed nor full screen.
It happens on Linux in full screen, but not when windowed.
I tried output overlay and open gl.
It happens if I set fullresolution to original, desktop or a fixed resolution like 1600x1200.
Any ideas on what could be causing this?
