Problems with cursor

[Post New]by Robilyn on Sep 5, 10 1:03 AM
I didn't see a thread for problems, so I will start one. You can not pick up items in your inventory, with the cursor. You have to click, and click and hope it works. Please let us all know when this is fixed. I want to buy this game, but not with this kind of problems.

Try turning off the custom cursor - that solved most of the problems I had with slowdown/juddering when I had an object in hand. You'll still get some limited cursor changes even with custom cursor turned off, so you'll still be able to see what you can look at, pick up, etc.

Even with custom cursor off the cursor wont cooperate.

I have tried it on both my computers and I do not have a cursor problem on my laptop - even custom cursor works fine.
The laptop is a
2.4gb Intel core duo
Windows Vista
4gm RAM
NVIDEA 8600 256mb

My desktop which the cursor wont work properley is
3.2gb Intel Pentium 4
Windows Vista
4gb RAM
ATI Radeon HD 5750 1GB

edit: I even just tried switch my mouse over to see if my mouse the problem- but nope- only laptop works properley

Hello everyone!!
This game looks promising
But is it just me or the cursor is a bit slower when I play this game?
Anyone knows whether there's any chance for this game to go to the Daily Deal?

I would buy this in an instant if it wasn't for the jerky cursor - played 37 mins but spent most of it trying to pick up and use inventory items - the rest of the game plays ok just the interaction with the cursor ruined it for me, so disappointed as I've been longing for a decent game of this type. If it gets sorted or someone finds a solution I'll buy it, but not like this.

Yes the problem is interacting with inventory items.

You can try turning off the custom cursor- that may help some of you.

Nothing I do here helps on my desktop.

I too have having problems with the cursor, and picking up inventory items, very frustrating. Seems like it could be a good game, but cannot enjoy it with the slow cursor etc.

Jerky, slow cursor and I couldn't even change the player name.

Won't waste my time with this.

I have uninstalled it already.

No sale!

I played the entire hour and had none of the problems you all have mentioned. The cursor worked fine in both custom and normal settings. I prefer the regular cursor but tried both ways since I read on here some were having problems. I also had no problems whatsoever picking up items from the inventory or adding items to the inventory.

Oh, edmee 1947, you aren't supposed to change the channels on the tv, lol. That's what it wouldn't work. If you turn on the t.v. you will notice the channel that's showing is a program guide and that's what's important to the game, not being able to change channels.

Maybe you need to uninstall and reinstall if you downloaded during the first half hour or so after release. Sometimes I think that there are so many downloading at the same time that not only does it slow down the the time to download and install, but it also causes glitches. I have done the same thing and installed again later on, sometimes the following day, and had no problems at all. Just a suggestion.

Some people (myself included) have found that turning off the Custom Cursor can help with moving inventory items.

As for the TV, you don't need to change channels - the information you need is already on-screen.

Hi

I have the same problem with the cursor. I changed it in the options menu but it is always very difficult to take a thing from the inventory. I stop playing the demo and I am waiting if there is an update.

This game looked very promising and I nearly bought it without trying it. Glad I didn't, my cursor, after letting me pick up a gear and a cloth, is floating all over the place. Nothing I can do. It a shame as the game seemed great........

I just wanted to say that i to had the same problem with the cursor, everytime i tried to pick up an object out of the inventory it when into slow motion mode and wouldn't pick up half the time and turning off the cursor didn't work for me ether so i gave up with 35min left. I liked the look of the game but just can't play it that way, sorry BFG.
