I ran into a situation where after updating today to 2.8.1 Patch my mouse became invisible while in game. The resolution for me was to change the game to windowed mode.

I just wanted to share this as it may affect other players.

Issue:
Mouse pointer missing while in game.
Can move mouse and see it highlighting objects and in game choices.
Can't accurately target objects with invisible mouse in game.

Resolution above.

I'm confronted with this problem. For now I will also try windowed gaming, till I find a permanent solution. I love the power of google search

Permanent solution found here https://answers.ea.com/t5/Technical-...s/td-p/4845580

This part was key for the fix here:
