Post Problems running MOTS with Direct X 8.0a

I lose my mouse pointer.

I have a NDIVIA RIVA TNT2 32 Megs Graphics Card with the lastest drivers... I also recently updated DirectX to 8.0a... is this why I am having problems?

Anyone else getting this?

It waz a nice try but it did not work...

I still can't see my mouse pointer...

Actually the only way to see it for a bit is pressing Alt-Tab and then going back in MotS

I tried putting my Hardware Acceleration Down a notch like it says on LAs.com and all... Still doesn't work...

It waz working fine before I installed DirectX 8.0 *GRRR* me and my stupid ideas of upgrading my drivers...

What's great is that Microsoft tells me that DirectX 8.0 will even make my games run faster! what a load of crap that waz!!!

Any other ideas anyone?

LUCASARTS TECH SUPPORT IS THE BEST

I got a quick, ultra fast reply to my e-mail... And it solved my problem!

Actually it's partly my fault. I assumed that my mouse pointer was the default and that I didn't have mouse trail on... Well I had animated hour glass & mouse trail on (just a little, wasn't even noticeable). Clicked 'em off and YES! I see a pointer on my menu screen!

THANK YOU LUCASARTS TECH SUPPORT

BTW, what is that mouse trail? is it something Windows 98/2000 only?(YES, I still have good old W95)

Actually mouse trail is like a shadow pointers that trail after your pointer and it's not really a Win98/me feature... It's more like a feature with the software that comes with your mouse (Itellimouse) I think... People with Laptops usually use this because it's harder to see the pointer.

I would have stayed with Win95 also, but I bought a new computer and well it came with 98 so you know

Well, if you can still find the Win95 CD, you can still go back to using W95. (At least, we still hve it, this PC started as a 386 with windows 3.11, but we've kept upgrading and now it's a P200 with Windows 95 (and a Voodoo 2 card )).

I wouldn't recomend going back unless you did upgrade. If the computer came as Windows98 native, leave it. That's the only reason to have it. As far as Windows2000 goes, only for small business networks, even then, why not buy Windows NT?
