How do I move the actual mouse?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Wed Jun 25, 2014 2:09 pm

I'm making a game where something is following the mouse and you can pause whenever you like by pressing ESC.
During the pause you can move your mouse.
When you unpause the thing following the mouse instantly moves to the mouse.
I want to be able to put the actual mouse on the previous spot where it has been paused.
So you can't "cheat" during the pause of the game.

Hope my issue has been made clear and any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.

You have to find a way around this problem. For example, when you unpause the game make a flashing circle with text above "move cursor here to continue" ...or some thing like that. hope that helps

or if you want to really confuse players just hide system cursor and replace it with sprite... and randomly move it around xD

@EpicPixel 's workaround is just perfect! You should go with it, since controlling the actual pointer is not an option.
