Just loaded up the game, received my code. I can move my mouse around because I see button highlighted however I can't see the mouse cursor itself. I've tried CTRL-U twice, Alt-Tab, restarting game, restarting machine.. nothing works. I've updated graphic card, directx, and all windows patches up to date. I have made it in game and can walk around but I see no cursor on the screen... any ideas?

I don't see a mouse cursor from the very beginning I should also state, that meant during character selection I was just hovering real slow to make my choices. Wierd.

same problem here, they really need to patch these things. Im just going by what I can see my mouse is highlighting at the moment but its proving to be very frustrating

I just had this problem and fixed it by turning off pointer trails on my mouse.

Control Panel>Hardware and Sound>Mouse. Go to the pointer options tab then turn off display pointer trails.

Just figured I'd throw that out there so someone in the future can fix the problem faster than I did.
