Hello. I got a problem with Directinput. All the keydowns, info about mouse xy movement are working fine. But there is one huge problem i cant fix:

When i focus game window the mouse is ALWAYS placed in the center of game window. When i unfocus window (lets say pressing start button) the mouse is relocated to the point where i last placed it before focusing game window. And again, if i select the game it will again put cursor in the middle, and so on.

Other issue with focus/unfocus. when game is in background my UpdateScene function is constantly receiving info from last state. So if i unfocus the game while holding right button and moving the mouse, then for entire time in backgroudn the game is receiving this input, to the moment i focus window again.

This is sooo annoying, what can i do about it?
