    Team fortress 2 - no mouse cursor?

    Real shot in the dark, but hexus has come up trumps before. Just recently (last week or so) my mouse doesnt appear in the main TF2 menu. Therefore, when i want 2 select new server/options etc i have 2 wave my mouse around until i highlight one of the options then go with that. Only problem is, selecting individual servers etc is a nightmare as its all clicking & guessing the location of the mouse.


    Has anyone ever come across this problem before? Google has come up with nothing & it is so frustrating.

    cheers guys!

    Re: Team fortress 2 - no mouse cursor?

    sounds like you haven't got the game as the main screen focus, due to pop-ups in windows like the windows firewall one. try pressing alt-tab to see if there are any pop-upped screens or rotate around them until TF2 is selected.

    its happened many hundreds of times on my PC, a swift alt-tab or 'windows key' press soon sorts it.

    Re: Team fortress 2 - no mouse cursor?

    hey i found a way not to fix it because i have the same problem but a way to just deal with it is to go into the mouse properties and in one of the tabs there is a check box that say tell me the location of my mouse when i press ctrl and it really helped me so that i could actually find a server and change my settings. HOPE this helped!!!
