Steps To Reproduce1) Run the game
2) Switch to an application on your second monitor
3) Wait for it to finish building
4) When it starts focus will be put onto the game
5) See that your cursor is slow moving and also a weird scale
6) Click on the game
7) Wait for it to minimise
8) Click on it again

There doesn't seem to be a way of forcing an app to be full screen if it's not the activated window, but now it tries to reapply the fullscreen setting when the app is reselected. Not a perfect solution but it seems to be the best we can do.
