Mouse flickering in game


Hey all,

I'm having an issue where my mouse is flickering while trying to play. When I move my mouse across the screen it seems like the cursor is only being drawn on the screen maybe 75% of the time which results in the cursor blinking on and off. This makes it hard to track mouse movements and click on units / buildings.

I've noticed that the problem exists in the Steam version of Forged Alliance as well as within FAF. I've tried:

  • Setting the resolution lower than 1920x1080 (my monitor's resolution)

  • Trying Windowed mode vs fullscreen

  • Verifying game files and reinstalling both the game and FAF client

  • Changing video settings inside the Steam Forged Alliance game.

One interesting thing that I've noticed is that the d3d_windowscursor console command completely fixes the issue in the Steam game. The only issue is that there doesn't seem to be a way to do the console command inside FAF. I've tried opening the Steam game and a FAF game at the same time and doing the command, but it doesn't work.

Any help is very much appreciated, thank you!


'~' opens the console window.


Ah ok thanks. I was trying to open the console window in the lobby and I never tried it once I was actually in game. I can at least play for now by doing that command at the beginning of the game.
