No mouse cursor in start menu

#1 Posted by jerka707 (24 posts) -

When I start the game my mouse cursor is not there and I can only move which button is selected with the arrow keys, and no button presses on the keyboard, but when the controller (360 gamepad) was connected to the computer I could press buttons with A but not control anything else with it. I have tried reinstalling with no success.

Its fixed now, I uninstalled a driver and it worked.

Super weird. Glad you've got it working. The game's fascinating.

Yeah, I have finished it now, cried several times during the audio logs, It was very emotional. What this game did is also why I liked amnesia so much, even though that game has more gameplay elements to it.

Just had this issue as well. Turns out the game was trying to use my G27 as the controller. Disabling it in Device Manager solved the problem.

Having the same issue, appreciate it if you'd let us know what driver you uninstalled.

It was a driver from a program that is called FacetrackNoIR that would work as trackir but just tracking a head with a normal webcam. The driver it installed was called Vjoystick or Virtualjoystick. So it could probably be some other controller interfering for you.

For myself, I had to disable 'Logitech Freedom 2.4 USB' (joystick) in the Control Panel Device Manager, under 'Human Interface Devices'.
