Alas I found the custom cursor unusable too but even after changing it I found the game just too jerky to play because I could click on an item in my inventory and it would take at least a minute to jerk its way to where I wanted to use it . I have made my way into cottage and done a couple of tasks there but now my wrist is killing me as it feels as though I have been wrestling with an .

When I had this problem with the actual dragon wheel in Secrets of the Dragon Wheel it was only that one area I could not play and CS told me that I needed to update my graphics card so I guess there are going to be a few of us who need to do that . I just hope that it is going to be worth while putting a new card in an old machine because I sure am not going to buy a new computer just to play this game good as I think it is going to be. Apart from which when you buy a new computer a lot of your old games don't work so dilemma dilemma.

I would just like to add a word of praise for the developer in giving us a Brightness adjuster , I think that is going to be invaluable for those of us who have trouble seeing some things against a dark background.

Me too even using ordinary cursor.
Certainly a thumbs up to be able to alter brightness level.

Pity as it looks like a very good game.

I've tried to update my graphics card - I have the latest version. Guess this is a no buy for me too.

For those with cursorproblems: did you try and adjust the cursorsettings in Configuration? I've got mine set to fast and all the other things turned off (like pointers etc.) I have never had cursor-issues (that needed to be mentioned )
Hope this helps.


Posted in another thread too

I had problems with the cursor too. I turned off the custom cursor and cranked up the pointer speed which helped, but not perfect. Not sure if I will buy because of the cursor problems as it still affects play but at least the game is now normal speed.

For those looking at the TV screen, check along the top for time, not down left side.

A good game totally ruined because of the cursor problem, what's happening to BF, it used to be such a good site, but I find I can't play many of the games because of different issues lately.

I have the same problem with inventory items. I always turn off custom cursors before even starting a game. I did eventually manage to pick up the rag but then could not 'look closer' at the thing I needed to clean w/o putting it down and could not do that.

Very sad. Looked like my kind of game, mostly adventure with a little HOG. But no buy here till this is fixed.

BTW - someone earlier said they had the same problem with today's DD - Dept 59. Great game, I had no problems with it at all.

Game seems almost frozen it's so slow. Even the opening screen is slow. Spent 7 minutes just on the 1st screen at the gate.

I changed the cursor. The cursor works well now but the game is still super slow. I won't play anymore and certainly will not but until fixed.

I am having the same problem with cursor when accessing inventory items. I turned off the custom cursor and it did not help. Is there going to be an update to fix the problem. It looks like a great game that I would buy if the cursor issue is resolved but until them it's a sad no for me

That's exactly the problem I had too.. Turned it off. I too like this sort of game but.. unless they have a fix soon,, won't stay on my computer! Too bad,,,,

I spent the first 37 minutes of the trial hour f****ng with the interactive parts of the game like the gears box and the window and the bird's nest. It ticked me off and I did what I always do when bfg behave this way...I deleted it. I have a fairly fast machine and rarely have programs with other games, so unless "they" put out an update that stops this game's behavior, it's not being considered as a purchase.

Me too with the cursor! Very annoying! Ruins game. Wish BF could iron out these problems before putting the game out there. Waste of time!
