[WORKAROUND] [XB1/PS4] Cursor disappeared

[ Edited ]
★★ Newbie

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Microsoft XBOX One
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Rarely (0% - 9%)
What is your current game version number? Idk
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? None
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Idk
What happens when the bug occurs? My cursor doesn’t appear on the screen
What do you expect to see? The cursor so I can see where and what I’m clicking
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

 So basically I’ve been playing the game all day and all of a sudden my cursor disappeared. I tried to go to a different family, exiting to the main menu and it never came back. The actual cursor or arrow thing in with you click people, items, and activities does not appear. It seems like it’s still there, it’s just I can’t see it. I could see it partially hovering over the build mode icon in the upper right hand corner of my screen but it won’t show me the actual physical body of the arrow.

Help! Curser disappears...

★★ Newbie

When I go into build mode or travel, my curser/arrow disappears and randomly bounces between curser and the icons around the screen. I'm am about to stop playing! Pressing circle does nothing, in this case. I've tried everything. What am I doing wrong!?!?! 

 

When I arrive to my location, I can't get the curser to come up so I can click on items or people at these places, all I can do is watch my SIM....

Hi @fice10 @MissJessicaLynn,

I have merged your threads as you seem to be having the same problem. Frown

Have you tried to press touchpad button to toggle to menus, and then again to go back to cursor mode to see if that makes it reappear? Or change to build mode and back to live mode?

@MissJessicaLynn, can you also see the white outline around objects and Sims, as you can see in fice's screenshot?

Has anyone found a solution to this? Still having this issue in 2018. Just bought the game and it has updated and everything. Very frustrating , looking for a way for a refund I’m so disappointed! I’ve waited for this game to come out for years on console
