#6369 closed defect (invalid)

Mouse disappears after 1st click.

I clicked on the "allow feedback", and the mouse disappeared. I have two monitors, Windows 10 Pro (up to date).

I can guess where the mouse is when it goes over a menu item, because the item flickers. And, I can then left click the mouse.

Exiting the game restores the mouse visibility.

Exiting and restarting the game does not restore mouse visibility in the game.

Restarting the computer also did not help with mouse visibility.

Can you try to add nohwcursor = true to your user.cfg file (see wiki/GameDataPaths)?

That allows a mouse cursor to show up. It's not the same cursor as my system (much smaller -- I have very high res monitors) but it's workable.

However, this also restricts the mouse movement to the single monitor (left in my case) that the game is running on. Perhaps the game always works this way?

If I alt-tab (Windows) away from the game, then I can use the mouse on both monitors.

After reading the referenced forum thread (#16161)< I switched to "Windowed Mode under the "Graphics (general) setting and restarted the game. This allows my mouse cursor to work all the time, on both monitors.

For me, it would have been great to either install in Windowed mode, or ask "Full screen/windowed" upon 1st startup.

Thanks for the quick reply!

Glad it worked!

(Asking a question that 99% of the people don't need, is not going to happen, sorry.)
