I am having a problem with a game I am writing in DirectX. I am using a window, not full screen, with the regular cursor. Every 15 ms I blit a new scene. On some computers, the mouse will flash wildly while over the game window. Does anybody know why this is, or better yet, a fix? Thank you! Michael Schmitz

Disable the cursor. DirectX does not support the GDI cursor, which is why it''s flashing (it''s like mixing DX and GDI calls).

If I wanted a cursor to appear over my windowed program that is the same as windows default, how would I et this up?
