Yeah, I thought I'd tried that. When I look at the settings now the "hardware" button is checked, but the cursor still looks the same in-game. I'll look again when I get home tonight but I'm pretty sure I've got hardware selected. What should I do in the event that it is checked, but still showing the fancy cursor? Is there anything that can be done or is it pretty much as is? Not that it really matters, I guess. I just thought I'd read somewhere a long time ago that it increased performance a little bit to use the hardware as opposed to software. Thanks for getting responding, Pocus!
