Hello, dear Ja 1.13 community.

I wanted to start a new game today with the newest version around, on my laptop. The problem is that I can't see the mouse almost at all in the main menu. It appears and disappears constantly, leaving a trail of mouse whatchamacallit.

I have win 7 64 bit. Is there a way to fix this in the ini?

that could be a problem with your graphic card settings.
take a look in your Ja2\Docs folder and you will find useful links how to fix that problem.

Thanks for the quick reply. I am looking in the docs folder, but I can't see anything obvious that can help me. Should I use the win 8 fix, even if I have win 7?

it is a txt file somewhere located in the Docs folder which contains bears-pit-links to ja2 1.13 problems. I dont think it is inside the win8-fix-zip package.

You can find the links in the file "ReadMe.txt" located in the folder "Docs\Windows Compatibility Fixes".

Here is the content of the file:

Just extract the "Windows 8 Fix.zip" to a temporary folder and read the included "ReadMe.txt" file!

Oh, I thought that readme was related to the win8 fix. Thanks.

I looked at the links, and the only one that seems related to my problem is this one: http://www.ja-galaxy-forum.com/ubbthreads.php/ubb/showflat/Number/201044/Searchpage/1/Main/14041/Words/catalyst/Search/true/Re_mouse_artifacts.html#Post201044 .

The problem is that I have an Nvidia card, not Radeon. So I have managed to turn off Al in the Catalyst, but the problem remains Sad

Solved it! I changed the preferred video card to the integrated card, using the Nvidia Control Panel. Now everything works correctly Smile
