When a user has dual monitors, a browser window does not open up centered on their screen, it opens in a position depending on which monitor dreamseeker is running on and which monitor is set to your main monitor.
If your left monitor is your main monitor...
When you have dreamseeker running on your left monitor, the window will open centered on your right monitor.
When you have dreamseeker running on your right monitor, the window will open just off screen to the right of your right monitor and you have to drag the edge to get it back on screen.
If your right monitor is your main monitor...
When dreamseeker is running on your right monitor, the window opens centered on the left monitor.
When dreamseeker is running on your left monitor, the window opens just offscreen to the left of your left monitor and you have to drag it back.
Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
Have dual monitors
Open a browser window
Code Snippet (if applicable) to Reproduce Problem:
usr << browse(HTML_VAR,"window=vars;size=600x700;border=0;can_close=1;can_resize=1;can_minimize=1;titlebar=1")
Expecting the window to open centered on the screen, or at least in the same position as where the previous window closed.
Window opens on the wrong monitor or off screen of the monitor as described above. If you close the window, it opens in exactly the same spot it opened the first time.
It only happens with browser windows. a skin window seems to function just fine.
Does the problem occur:
Every time? Or how often?
In other games?
Dont have access to code in other games.
In other user accounts?
Every user I've spoken with that has dual monitors has this same issue. Users with single monitors report that the window opens centered on their screen without issue.
On other computers?
Only have 1 computer to test on, but it happens on other user's computers as well.
When does the problem NOT occur?
Only doesn't occur when a user has a single monitor.
Did the problem NOT occur in any earlier versions? If so, what was the last version that worked? (Visit http://www.byond.com/download/build to download old versions for testing.)
Unsure of when it started, I do remember this not being an issue before. But it wasn't something I noticed initially, then another player reported it and I began testing it some more. It was happening in 511 though and isnt something new to 512.
Click and drag the edge of the window to expand it a little then drag it back onto the screen.
