# 1 Mouse trail bug
01-07-2013, 09:22 AM
If you're like me and countless other STO players, you may have experienced a bug with a second mouse cursor trailing behind the first.

Not to worry! When the second cursor appears you can type /softwarecursor 0 to remove it. You can even bind it to a key in case it bugs out during combat. Hopefully that fixes it for you

Very cool, I was wondering how to deal with that. Usually I would quit the game to fix it.

Only occurs for me as the result of two things:

1) The temporal crap which causes me to desync.
2) Boldly They Rode.

Can fix it by popping open the character window, going to skills, and just moving the scrollbar up and down. Could probably do it on any scrollbar. With the first instance, it's not only a case of the mousetail but keybinds not working, etc, etc, etc - so I'll usually pop the character window open and hit up the scrollbar before hitting respawn.

The bug has apparently been around since Champions Online and it was never fixed. *insert Cryptic-bashing comment here*

Many thanks for the tip but...I think this bug is an evul Klingun dirty trick!
Am I wrong or you Bobtheyak were pugging with me two days ago when our team won in an epic Arena match 15-14 against the evuls? And we were also losing 11-14...awesome!

Oh yay, I didn't know this was a thing. I thought it was just my computer sucking.
The first we heard of getting new PvP maps "soon" was in August of 2010. We're consistently told something will be coming with the "next" update. Absolutely nothing has come to PvP since launch.

I think it's finally time Cryptic stopped stringing us along, don't you?

It's posts like this that make it almost near impossible for me not to add a smartarse comment.

I'd post constructively but I'm too busy dodging the Forum MOD's due to my usual posts.
