Hello, I was wondering what command line switches are present in the eve executable. Particularly if there is one to disable hardware cursor control.

I ask because my mouse disappears when it is over the eve window (it still works - stuff is highlighted when moused over, I can click on thins, but the mouse is invisible) and I believe disabling hardware cursor control would fix the issue.

Also, I have already tried disabling direct draw acceleration and the hardware acceleration in windows (I am on XP) to no avail. Thanks.

Removing local will allow you to ignore the cloaked mouse pointer Razz Seriously tho, i'm not sure whats causing this, it happens to me from time to time, but a client restart usually fixes it for me.

Are you using an ATi Radeon card? the catalyst 10.8 drivers caused issues with mouse hardware acceleration - if you still haev those drivers installed I suggest you upgrade to 10.9 (or later if there are later available).

Unfortunately, this is not an intermittent issue, it starts when the client starts and any time my mouse is over the screen it is 'invisible'. Also I am not using an ATI card on this particular computer.

At the risk of getting flamed, I know from Google-ing this that WoW has an option to disable cursor hardware acceleration. Even a way to stop eve from hiding the system default cursor would be great (If I turn on the "when you press ctrl a circle zooms in on the mouse" thing, the circle shows up for a second before disappearing.).

Either a command line switch or if I missed an option in the client somewhere - is there any place with a list of the CLI switches? I searched evewiki and evelopedia but couldn't find anything other than a couple of patch notes listing a few unrelated command line switches.

afaik there's no switches that will do what you are looking for, the switches available are mostly for startup-related features.

Bleh, I was afraid of that. Still, is there any place with a list of all the switches ? As I said before evewiki and evelopedia are useless. Thanks for the reply.

The undrawn cursor happens to me a lot. In that case I can usually get it back in a few seconds by trying to move it over certain UI elements - usually buttons on the neocomm.

This happens to me sometimes, and this works for me.

Same occasionally happens to me whilst using a Nvidia card (GTX 260 rev2).

Usually it fixes itself though for me and if it doesn't an alt-tab seems to force it.
