Running the CD retail version of Doom 3, patched to 1.3 with Reshade version 4.3 on Windows 10. Mouse won't move into the Reshade window. Keyboard shortcuts don't work either. Game mouse pointer moves around in the background, while Windows mouse pointer appears locked in the middle of the screen. Any possible solutions or workarounds?

Does this happen when ingame or in the Game Menue?
Try going to the Game Menue First (esc) and then open reshade.

I also have this in some Games and entering an static screen (main menue, esc, menue, etc) does unlock the Mouse so to say..

Theres also an option in Reshade but im not shure if this will change anything with "those" games..

No, it doesn't work regardless if I press Home in game or in the menu. Doom 3 has some kind of custom mouse cursor, when I bring up Reshade I can see the Windows mouse pointer in the middle of the screen, which doesn't move. Doom's mouse pointer moves but behind the Reshade window.

EDIT: After pressing CTRL+TAB, keyboard shortcuts now work. Mouse doesn't work with Reshade in this game, but at least I can configure Reshade now.

Open the console in-game. Then you should access to clickys.

Open the console in-game, then alt + Enter Window mode, In quake 4 it works like this.
