Pygame.mouse.set_pos() doesn't set the mouse position Pygame repl

I’m trying to lock the cursor position to the center of the screen in pygame, but when i go over to run it, it doesn’t lock, it does hide the cursor, but it doesn’t move it to the center. Which messes up the relative position.

pygame.mouse.set_pos((DISPLAYSURF.get_width() / 2,DISPLAYSURF.get_height() / 2))
mouserel = (pygame.mouse.get_rel())
mousex = mouserel[0]
mousey = mouserel[1]

I put this code in a loop, it would probably work in normal pygame, but it doesn’t on replit.

It is not possible to set the pos of a mouse over a Repl because the Repl is not running locally!
It is not moving your mouse, but would move the Repl VM’s mouse if anything.

This is because a Repl is streaming Outputs and sending them over the net!

Sorry, but I hope this helps!


It moves the repls mouse, but can’t they change the position of the mouse to the vm mouse when the output window gains focus?

He’s talking about the VM’s mouse.

Yeah, unfortunately, you can’t move the actual mouse to the VM cursor position.
