Refresh Mouse Cursor?

3 posts in this topic

I don't suppose anyone has a trick to refresh a mouse cursor. Going back and forth between windows in a game I frequently "lose" the mouse pointer. It just sucks because I have to restart the game...

Ugg I have no clue. The second windows mouse cursor appears in most of my games and is annoying as heck, its been that way for years. Perhaps it is because of using directx 9.0 and not 9.0b or whatever but it was buggy at the time, maybe I should give it another try. Have all my other drivers up to date also but I am pretty sure my video card or some such other wierd thing is messed up.

One thing I finally got down to doing for a temporary fix is to replace the current mouse cursor with a totally blank mouse cursor, and then alt+tab and keyboard minipulate my way to the game icon and launch it that way. This way when the windows mouse cursor tried to paint it's self into my game I don't see it at all.

I admit a really crappy alternative but it works for me for now.

I'd be happy if I even had a windows cursor, my problem is that I lose the pointer entirely in the game window. When the mouse travels over any other window the pointer is there but no graphic is drawn when I mouse through the game window.

This is with L2, aka the Unreal engine.
