ive just made a program which can affect the behaviour of the mouse pointer as it is moved. is there any way of making this program run in the background so the mouse effects can be used while working in windows? at the moment it runs in a graphics screen using movemouse.

thanks
neil

For moving the mouse outside the window, you could use api_SetCursorPos.
This command is decared in these .decls:

You can use movemouse without the graphics mode. I did that for my pong screen saver.
