Hi there, after a LOT of lurking, I haven't been able to find a workaround solution for gaming on a Vista machine with the hardware cursor setting checked.
The game runs at a natural 30 fps and I find that without the hardware mouse cursor setting, the cursor is sluggish and very frustrating to play with.
I've heard that compatibility modes might work (as so to eliminate the cursor-vanishing bug, that's exclusive to the VIsta OS) but I haven't been that lucky. I've been advised by a friend of mine who's playing on a Windows 7 machine to increase the framerate (in the .ini file) to 35, or even 40, but that just effectively fast-forwards to game for me (and not increase performance).
If anyone has any success stories for getting the hardware cursor to work with VIsta, please help a brother out.
Thanks in advance.
