Was wondering if there is a way to stop camera movement when my mouse is at the screen edges. It happens quite often when accessing the toolbar. Can anyone help?

If I'm understanding the question correctly that's what the game refers to as HITS play (camera stays with selected unit). Try the custom difficulty setting and see if that fits your needs.

I'm learning this game playing on "Normal" difficulty. When moving the cursor to a screen edge e.g. top screen edge, this moves the camera straight forward. I was just wondering if I can disable this feature?

This can't be disabled that I know of. I've never heard of this concern and I've never had issues controlling the pointer. Maybe your pointer is moving too fast. Try slowing it down by tweaking your mouse app. found in the Control Panel. That's all I've got, hope you get it sorted out.

Hi OldnSlow, it's possible to slow down camera movement.

When you're in game, press Esc, select Option. You'll see four different camera speeds (forward/backward, right/left, up/down, speed rotation).

If you set this values, for example, to 10 the camera will be much more slower to move so if you hit the screen edge the view moves away just only a bit.

You'll have to use more the Map to "jump" quickly from one part to another of your deployment or use the "Go the the Selected Unit" in the OOB panel (G is the hotkeys for this) because also WASD keys moves the camera at the same speed of the mouse scrolling.

The way to stop this entirely is to play in HITS mode. In effect you are limited to what the general sees from his horse and the game becomes a first person strategy game. This changes the whole game and may may not be to your taste.
