Mouse cursor flickering on Win11

Post by Gaara »

Can't seem to solve this one, i've tried:
- compability modes
- i always run the game as admin anyway (UOS, EUO, tried client itself as well)
- windowed/fullscreen makes no difference
- reducing CPU usage from UOS on/off
- adjusting performance and appearance settings in Win11
- running mouse on separate thread on/off in UO settings
- auto hide taskbar

Disabling visual themes/desktop composition seems to have worked for Win7/8/10 with similar issues but there's no such option in Win11 as far as i can tell... :displeased:

Hello Mr Gaara

I find this flickering mouse very annoying.
Did you solve the problem?

In game if you turn off under options "run mouse in a separate thread" solved my flicker since windows 11

Unfortunately that just introduces another problem for me. It makes the mouse stop flickering but it becomes very unresponsive and laggy :cry:
