    Ok so like, when I go from full screen to a window in UT, then re-maximize it, the god-damned-farkin-icehole-sonovabitch Windows mouse pointer superimposes itself directly over my game. It stubbornly refuses to go away. I try switching the screen res and anything that refreshes the display to make it go away, and it works maybe 1 time out of 10. Even the demo version didn't do this to me, it's only the full one. How do I get rid of that? I hate having to ****ing restart UT every time I need to check another window for something. It pisses me right the hell off!!!!!

    Hmm...why don't you just ALT-TAB instead of ALT-ENTER? That way UT just minimizes, and then you just click it to get it back. Works for me. (I'm running 98 btw.)

    I've been getting that with my IE optical mouse, too. Only now I sometimes do it on purpose because it's a bigger target and it points in the right direction... /~unreal/ubb/html/wink.gif

    I have this big, ugly swiss-cheese yellow animated pointer with powder-blue wiggley things on it and a blue bouncy ball. Very, VERY distracting. Now if I could just find a nice big crosshair for a cursor.. /~unreal/ubb/html/smile.gif

    EASY FIX!!! HEHEHE!!! VERY EASY! So simple you'll poop your pants!
    Just change the resolution of your screen in UT! Drop it down to like 800X600! YOU HAVE TO DO THIS WITHIN UT FOR IT TO WORK!!! AND, it has to be once you've maximized your window again after ALT-TAB'ing! Then when it asks if you want to keep these settings..just say NO! Your cursor will be a figment of your imagination! =)

    well... you can always quit the game and start it up again... or just play solitiare. Now that's one game that rocks. So does mine sweeper.

    My wife has a time of like 89 seconds on EXPERT in Minesweeper.. that's 99 mines in under 90 seconds.. faster than one per second!

    She thought the game was stupid, till I told her what the numbers meant. /~unreal/ubb/html/smile.gif
