Mouse scrolling up/down is glitchy

p20 with NotEye here, running on Windows 7 64-bit, 1920x1200 resolution. If I move the mouse cursor to the left or right edge of the screen, the view scrolls left or right smoothly. But if I move it to the upper or lower edge, it just scrolls a little bit (and in a non-smooth way) and stops.

The "scrolling area" starts right below the message area (on the top) and it stops right before the stats area (at the bottom). So you are moving the mouse too far into areas that prevent scrolling.

I think we can/should improve this.

Oh, I see. Knowing that, it works fine. But yes, I think it's worth improving because I don't think it's very intuitive right now. Maybe highlight the border of the scrolling area or draw some kind of arrows where the mouse is over that border?

I'm not sure if the current implementation has technical reasons, we need to ask Zeno. But it's not very intuitive, I agree.

Note that you can also use the minimap to jump to a specific map location.

is there a reason the scroll zone isn't the window border?

The scrolling areas have been improved.
