Summary0001146: Mouse pointer fix gone too far???
DescriptionWas trying out 3.6.9 RC7dot9U when I got a debug error. Problem was I had no mouse pointer to select options. After messing arround and hitting alt-ctrl-del I finally was able to get a mouse pointer. Also noticed I had the same problem with firewall popup on another computer. Didn't have mouse pointer to select allow or deny FS2 internet access.
TagsNo tags attached.

The cursor visibility has always been iffy, so that's not really new.

There is some code missing from 7dot9u though, specifically for cursor visibility handling, but I couldn't get some bugs worked out and didn't commit it to CVS (and so it's not in 7dot9u). But I'll revist that code this weekend and it will hopefully fix this problem once and for all.

Actually the pointer is acting about like it did in the retail version now. Although alt-tabbing or getting an error message back then used to mean rebooting. I never did have a problem with the double pointer except when an error had alreay occured but didn't hit the debugger. If I both the FS2 and regular pointer it was time to exit (resulting in FS2 illegal OP message) and restart FS2. This was with the 3.6.9 releases.

Well looked good from what I could tell. No one online to test multi. Worked fine with firewall popups, alt-tabbing, and even when the debugger kicked in and FS2 crashed.
