I've read someone placing it back into the window whenever it leaves the border with the Input.warp_mouse() method.

But is there a proper way to lock the cursor inside the window?

I haven't tested it, but according to the Input class, you can use:

Input.set_mouse_mode(Input.MOUSE_MODE_CAPTURED)

However, it also makes the cursor invisible, so you may need to render your own cursor at the mouse coordinates given.

Yeah that worked, Thanks.
Plus seems I'll have to prevent it going off-screen as well

This doesn't seem to work if you export to html. In that case the mouse can still leave the window.
