would it be possible to make the game playable in a window and lock the mouse to not leave the window unless you alt + tabbed? i know you can do it for dota but it requires a 3rd party program to allow the mouse to lock, just thought it would be a cool option to not have to alt tab (and possibly crash) all the time

I also want this, as I frequently play in windowed mode, and it is very difficult for me to do other things while playing because of the mouselock.

The game already does this for me. I've set it to windowed mode, and it captures the mouse so it can't escape the window.

If its not capturing the mouse in windowed mode... a work around is to press escape to bring up the menu and then escape again. Bring up the menu will unlock the mouse while the menu is up. Also Alt+Enter will toggle windowed/fullscreen mode.

Alt+Enter is very bad for me. If I switch the game to windowed out of fullscreen, the game won't background properly. If I start the game up in windowed it behaves itself, though.

search windows mouse clipper. It is used for warcraft windowed mode. It can act as a backup if your mouse does not catch and you don't want to risk doing stuff.

there's this utility that worked for Warcraft 3 and should be game independent:
