I have a question,
Are you planning the Android mouse cursor hiding option?
Android 7.0 supported this function natively,and two developer succesfully solved in latest,and beta release.
(ScummVM latest , and beta Uae4arm amiga emulator)
I tested both versions,and working perfect on my phone,and on my tablet.
(On my Nvidia ShieldTV does not work correctly,maybe the missing touch screen /or drivers?
After the clicking,the pointer jumps over 1-2cm the clicking position.)

Thank you for information, I somehow missed this information, and works mouse on Android 7 exactly like on pc? Or only black cursor can be hidden. Will try explain. There are two issues with physical mouse on android :
1. Black cursor could not be hidden
2. That how android sends mouse coordinates. On desktop pc if you move cursor to border of screen and you still move mouse, then system still sends new and new coordinates. You dont have any problem with physical mouse. But android stops sending new cootdinates if you reach border with black cursor. This means that mouse cursor wont move anymore to the side where black cursor reached border.
Currently mDosbox uses Android Api 21 (android 5.1). To get higher (to android 7.0) must be fixed issues with new storage policies introduced in android 6.0. It must be done, but I was not hurry, because newer android version dont offer nothing interesting – only problems.
But if android fixed problems with physical mouse then there is good reason to go higher. But only “hiding” feature is not so hot reason, second point is interesting
EDIT : Ok I found it
They change image to transparent. People did it on rooted phones. Unfortunately seems they still didn’t fix functionality how android sends coordinates 🙁6. August 2017 at 17:36 #4759
thanks for the detailed reply.
I’m not a developer,just an average retro gamer from 1977 🙂
I like the old Dos,Amiga,C64 games, and thats why I’m happy with the new features on my favorite apps.
(Tested on Oneplus3 – Android 7.1.1 ScummVM – point and click adventure games, Uae4arm – Cannon Fodder,Dune2,Ishar,Eye of the Beholder etc. and working fine the new mouse option)
Anno I have purchased the Dosbox Turbo, but no more updates, and planning to buy the Magic Dosbox.
I just thought about asking this function, before buying the Magic Dosbox.
I think it’s a lot better than Dosbox Turbo : simple config,more function,and better MT32 midi emulation.

Thank you. Is not possible compare magic dosbox with dosbox turbo, both goes on own way. But if hiding cursor is the main future what you need, then I am sorry, but it can be done after I solve new storage permissions introduced in android 6, no sooner. Then it will be easy.14.

Thanks for the latest update!
The mouse hiding option working great on Nvidia Shield TV,and Oneplus 3.
Both devices have oreo update.
Now the emulator is perfect for the point & click adventure games,and RTS games 🙂16. July 2018 at 7:14 #6131

A2dpService ( com.android.bluetooth )
Maybe this is – driver for mouse and keyboard.5. August 2018 at 7:38 #6154
No, everything was implemented. Now we only will fix bugs, because Android is inconsistent and works differently on various devices. First updates were released in v6719. October 2019 at 20:04 #7360
i downloaded Uae4arm can anyone tell me where the option is to turn mouse curser off plz ??20. October 2019 at 1:57 #7361Al exKeymaster
Uae4arm…? Yoi sure you’re in the right forum? ?20. October 2019 at 2:06 #7362
idk what im doing tbh ? So how do i hide the mouse curser or how do i get rid of the boundaries?20. October 2019 at 12:34 #7363Al exKeymaster
That’s the point – I don’t know about Uae4arm. In Magic Dosbox, press back button ingame => Adjust Screen => Navigation Bar => Hide. Save profile, so the settings stick.20. October 2019 at 20:16 #7364
i said i wanted to get rid of the mouse curser or the boundaries how us adjusting the screen gonna help me do that?
