I have tested it on the real thing.

Another error has surfaced that not happens on XEP.

When opening the Left and Right menus and slowly displacing the pointer to down, about at the middle of the list of options, the pointer disappears and returns randomly  at the margins but on  the same row.

Some bits of the menu options are also drawn there where the pointer appears.

The middle menu is not affected by this error.

This error doesn't make the game unplayable, as if the pointer is moved faster, the menu options can sometimes be selected.

If I can I will drop a video but it can be seen using the keyboard.

Please forget my last commentary... My mouse was making weird things.

The program works the same on a real EP!


Edit: the error as returned, only with my old EP, on my unopened issue 6 EP it works perfect.

My old EP has some problems.....

We need more beta testers.

My old issue 4 EP makes again the error, even with the keyboard, but on my unopened issue 6 EP the program works perfect.

My old EP is very, very used, I don't know what can happen to it.

The other mouse programs work on it.

You need Zozo as beta tester.

I could not reproduce this error on EP128emu with keyboard, I changed vertical movement from 4 to 1, this grants the slow movement.

I'm now away on vacation, I can test it two weeks later.
(With XEP:  mouse total random moving)

Have nice vacation :)
I hope it is a mouse driver bug :D , it is interesting, I use the same code as in SPEmu, and main parts are the same as in Swap, and mouse moves at Gflorez, you have a Random movement, and when I last tested mouse moved continously up in CM2000, and bit randomly very slowly (or no movement) in Swap.

With my issue 6 EP I have found a little error that may be the cause of the bigger error on my old EP. It only happens with mouse control.

If I click on the menus and slide the pointer without clicking over the revealed list, suddenly the  menu closes. The pointer remains in the same position.

On the old EP is the same, but also with keyboard, the pointer vanish and appears near the border on the same row. Parts of the menu list are redrawn there like garbage.

I have observed a slight delay in the music while over the menu.

Remains the cursor in the same position, and the cursor does not move anymore?

No, I mean, with the new EP (from now on I will name my issue 6 one as this), I click on a menu word and the menu list reveals itself.

Then, once slowly sliding the pointer over the list, the menu disappears but  the pointer remains still working as normal.

On the old EP the error reaction is worse, the menu and pointer disappear but resurface on the same row at the borders, some bits of the menu are drawn like garbage there..

I still had no time to do the video. Perhaps a little later.

Then on issue 6 ep the mouse movement is ok, the menu disappears when the cursor leaves it.
I did not check yet , i just thinking (i did not turn on my pc), and this pointer jumping error what your old ep produce should not occur, the mouse is read in the interrupt, and screen addree is calculated also there and stored, so interrupt is disabled, and it seems cursor position goes to bad, what normally can not occur.

Exactly.

Now I have observed what is the problem (on my healthy EP). When you click a menu word, you only can slide the pointer on an area as wide as the title word, but the menu list is wider than that area.

Try to put the pointer on a menu option and then move the control to the left or right. You will see that the list disappears with the pointer still over the menu list.

Of course this is not your fault.

I think that the solution can be to enlarge the menu click area.

On my old EP.... here you have a video of its estrange behaviour:

Thank you very much the video.
Hm, it is very interesting, it seems it seems something is corrupted when you press fire, and therefore the action is not performed, just the cursor is redrawn with the saved background. Is it an EP128 or EP64?
