Re: Mouse cursor visible when it shouldn't be

I have had this happen a handful of times.  If I go into my map then back to the game the cursor is gone.  Not something you want to have to do, but its a quick fix for now.

The easiest solution I have found for this, is that when the mouse cursor appears hit esc then move the mouse cursor to the bottom of the screen where it is no longer visible and esc out. It seems the game will try to attach the mouse cursor to the crosshair when switching from menus that use the mouse. I believe it has to do with a coding timing error where the mouse cursor should despawn before the crosshair spawns but in some cases it does not.

Thar's not entirely the same, because the cursor is supposed to be visible all the time in Dragon Age Inquisition.

It's happening to me as well, sometimes. Although I didn't tested that thoroughly, it seems that the problem appear more often when you open and then close the Journal (or similar page) in a quick succession. It can also happen when quick closing a News page upon entering the game. Running borderless window.

So, I've also had this problem and I figured out what it was by total randomnes. I yesterday got a bluescreen (windows 10) saying there's something wrong with my CPU overclock (Core i5 4690K 22nm). So when I went in my Bios I noticed Asus autocloking feature had clocked my Busclock to 103 and my cores were off. I turned off the autofunction and set the BUS to 100 and the cores to 45, keeping the voltage stock. And to my surprise when I played the game today, the mousecursor bug was gone Standard smile

I would love to use that .dll fix (it worked for me on Andromeda).

I would like a support representative to respond and say whether we'll be banned or not for putting that in our installation folder before I do though.

Unfortunately, the patch hasn't fixed the issue. Here's hoping it makes the next patch.
