    Did you ever figure this out John?  I have a VM running in Citrix Xenserver with a Quadro video card passed through for Fusion360 and Cura for 3d printer file design&printing, and it works great.  My Kids have recently got into minecraft, so I thought I'd introduce them to Minecraft java edition and mods.  And of course wanted to just use my stupidly beefy VM via jump desktop on my iPad..  And hit exactly the same issue as you. 

     

    If Im really careful, it's ALMOST usable - you have to move the mouse tiny bits, and remember to return it to center immediately after using it each time.  But it's REALLY annoying.   I've played FPS games in a VM on my macbook in parallels (though that's painful..), and that DOES work, so I know it SHOULD be possible somehow, was really hoping that Jump had figured it out and I was just missing a setting somewhere..

    I'm on Windows 10 in the VM, and iPadOS 13 on the iPad, and of course, Citrix X1 mouse.

    Cheers,

    DG

    We're working on this right now. We'll add the ability to lock the pointer. If you want to try it out when it's ready please join our beta testing group by emailing support@jumpdesktop.com

    Thanks team, I joined the beta testing group, and have testflight installed. Do you happen to have an indicative idea of timeline for when this might hit beta? :)  I’m REALLY looking forward to getting this happening :D  being able to just RDP into a box that has minecraft always ready from my iPad, rather than waiting 8 minutes for minecraft to boot on my 3kg-ish macbook, would be amazing :D
