Frequently have to turn off/on the "white" cursor fix.



  • My cursor is constantly switching back to the full brightness mode, forcing me to open the options and flick the option off and on to reset it.

    This generally happens with fullscreen games, but has happened other times with an unknown cause.

    The issue's been around for ages, and persists through reinstalls (both program and Windows)

    Is there a fix? Thanks!



  • We are using the system setting to turn off the hardware cursor, because some video drivers do not apply the color profile to the cursor. When we do this, the system renders the cursor using the desktop compositor (that draws everything else), so it can be slightly slower.

    Any game could turn this on or off - if this is common (can you say which games?) we could try to flip it back when you go out of a fullscreen game. But I wouldn't want to be too aggressive about it, because then we might mess up cursors in the game.
