Alien Arena is an open sourced game that combines a sci-fi atmosphere with the tournament style deathmatch of Q3A and UT2k4. Major graphical features such as GLSL per-pixel lighting, ragdoll physics, light blooms, real time lights and shadows, textured particles, shaders, and reflective water, create a colorful and immersive deathmatch atmosphere. The game also includes mutators, adjustable effects, bot skill settings, and fully configurable deathmatch, team deathmatch, CTF, All Out Assault, Team Core Assault, Cattle Prod, and Deathball games. The game features original artwork, with a dark, sinister atmosphere combined with an off-the-wall campiness, and trippy, techno type music. There are currently over 60 maps, loaded with weapons(each having an alternate firing mode) and powerups. Alien Arena has fast, smooth gameplay, & players can play online against one another or against the bots. Please post all support issues in the forums for the game.

Upon starting the game, which is in windowed mode by default, I can use the mouse to select menu items, but after starting a single player game, it seemed not to accept any input from the mouse. I eventually discovered I could use the keyboard to look up, down, turn, and fire, but playing the game this way is impossible.

I saw on another forum that someone else had the same problem, and it was suggested they start the game in full screen mode. I did this, but all that happened was that I could no longer use the mouse to select menu items and had to use the keyboard for everything. I also tried toggling the "Windowed Mouse" option under video options, but that didn't seem to do anything.

It's a standard USB connected mouse. I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.
