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
Awesome! Thanks!

Prior, I was always having to open my options menu and adjust my mouse curser sensitivity bar to remove the trails.

This is much easier.

Actually a quicker way is to just click the XP bar, we have been doing that for 3 years now, lol.

Cool, but I always have it disabled. A bind can be hit in the middle of the action without breaking movement either.

Not sure about you, but when I get the bug my main cursor lags out as well. The original point was to do it without having to move the mouse, but if it's quicker for you to lug it up to the skill bar then close the window, more power to you.

Since installing the Legacy of Romulus patch, it happens (100% reproduceable) every time I left click in a STO window.

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?

Yeah its the software cursor suddenly appearing under the hardware cursor, hence one is accelerated and the other is not (Hence the lag)

Not sure why it happens but it happened back in the early days.

I always fix it by moving my mouse over a scrollback in options or the chat or click on it a few times. Always solves it.
