Legacy GM Break Out style game bat follow mouse.x issue


hello Guys,
After a long break from gamemaker I am back and very rusty and will be thankful for any help I can get.

I am currently working on a basic breakout style game that is 768px wide and 1024px high, I have set the bat to follow the mouse.x which seems to work ok until the mouse moves off the screen / game room then it has to wait until the mouse gets back to the x position of the bat to move again. This is really annoying and I have tried various things to fix the issue but nothing works.

Any help would be much appreciated.


It's a coding issue, we'd have to see your code to help. Also, best to post stuff like this in the programming forum so it gets more views.



Edit: just noticed the date on this post.

It's a good question though and all such games should include this line for the reason you mentioned.
