Hiding the mouse pointer

I don't have a clue. I don't use ePSXe anymore personally.

What do you use (Retroarch?)?

Are you able to get the resolution and graphics looking good like ePSXe? I'd be interest in knowing what your video settings are for it with what you use.

I just use RA with a shader. Video is an extremely subjective matter and what I like you may not care for. I play all of my games in 16:9 wide screen which I know many people hate so if that isn't your preference from the bat that would eliminate my settings.

I know this is dated, but being a new user to LaunchBox I had this exact issue. I solved it by allowing the Esc key to perform two functions. First press of Esc will move the mouse out of view. Second press will exit the emulator. It is not ideal as the mouse will need to be manually moved by the first press of Esc, but there is no need for additional software.

1st) click on Tools then Manage Emulators.


2nd) Double click on Demul.


3rd) Select the AutoHotkey Script Tab. 


4th) Replace the Default Script with the following:

; Press Esc to move mouse and close emulator



if ( n = 1 ) ;First press of Esc moves mouse


    MouseMove, 2000, 2000, 0 ;increase the first two values if the pointer is still visible on your display




else if ( n=2 ) ;Second press of Esc closes emulator


    Process, Close, {{{StartupEXE}}}


5th) Click on Ok.


Give the script a test run and if you have any issues you can click on Reset to Default Script.


I hope this helps.
