Re: Cursor not showing up in game.
Don't know if this will help, but go to the Windows Control Panel and open the Mouse CP. Go to the Pointer Options tab and look at the Visibility section. Make sure that all of the options there are unchecked. They sometimes interfere with the way the in-game mouse pointer works.
