UPDATE: I bought the game in Epic Store and the problem is not there! So it most likely has to do with Windows Store, and Windows Store running all games like a Windows App and not allowing you to change that (run as normal .exe). The Windows App overlay seem to cause the problem with the game UI when using downsampling. That isn’t a problem with the game bought in Epic Store.
Hello, I have a problem that is game breaking.
I am playing Phoenix Point on Win10 through Windows Store. I am playing it at 4K resolution downscaled to 1080p and I suspect that this has thrown of the mouse control.
How? When I hoover the mouse cursor over UI buttons (both in-game and in the main menu), some buttons get activated but other do not react on the presence of the mouse cursor hoovering above it. So I can’t for example exit the game (I have to tab out or ALT+F4), I can’t scroll down with the slider on graphics options. And on the tutorial I can’t heal my teammate because I can’t click on the healing device in the abilities bar. So I am stuck progressing in past the tutorial.
I can’t change back the resolution either because of the same problem. So I am somewhat stuck in this situation. Windows Store locks the installation folder behind a heavily protected folder so I can’t access the game files and reset any ini files from there. Is there any way to solve this?
Perhaps a hint to solving it can be a pecualiar behaviour I have noticed; when I move the mouse cursor to the center top or center bottom of the screen a blue thin bar pops-up (I suspect this is something Windows App related). If I click it, it has brings up the windows activity bar (the one at the bottom of the screen with system time etc.).
Here’s a image of the blue thin bar: https://imgur.com/a/aRr0dn5
