TOPIC: Missing Cursor - New steam version

Missing Cursor - New steam version 4 months, 4 weeks ago #1

I've been trying to get this game to work properly like this guy's video...


I'm running on Windows 10 on a razer blade 2016 laptop. I set the game to run on my dedicated GPU. I've set the game to run like it's under windows XP sp2 and Windows 7. Resolution is a little wonky even working with the INI file but my biggest gripe is NO cursor. I just can't play it without one.

I'd love to play this game, I enjoy scourge of war : waterloo and this looks great too. Please help me out, I don't want to have to return the game for technical issues. It looks great when I'm running it, I just need the cursor quite frankly...

Thanks

edit: I've also used the fullscreen =1 and =0 options as well for the ini file.

Yeah we had one player experience the same thing. Go to the TC2M exe, right click, and check the option to "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings". That should fix it.

Yep I figured that out about 30 minutes ago. Stupid windows keeps turning it on.

Another issue... The mouse works when I set it to fullscreen = 0 with the fix you mentioned, but now the resolution is completely off. Cuts off the top bottom and right side.

In the video I posted, what version is that guy playing because it's stretched perfectly and has a paradox logo on the right.

Re: Missing Cursor - New steam version 4 months, 4 weeks ago #4

Ok. I just figured out it's my display scaling... Will there be updates to this game where I don't have to keep changing settings just to play it? It's quite frustrating even for a "prosumer".

edit: I can only do between 150% or 170% for display scaling so it either cuts off my screen where I can't see parts of the game or I see chunks of my desktop... Yikes.

The video above is not the Steam version, its the old stand-alone version, hence the Paradox logo. The guy says the game is "coming out on steam very shortly".

I've managed to make a custom resolution but everything is cut off from the top, including the compass. Ridiculous.

If the Steam Version allows, download the SDK from the previous Site and add the Data Files to your game.

The Compass settings are adjusted by changing the first two values in the Toolbar .csv file. Scroll down to the last line of the toolbar.csv file. it is probably better to change one value at a time.

Re: Missing Cursor - New steam version 4 months, 3 weeks ago #8

What is the previous site you are mentioning?

Also I think it's cutting off some information on the top left too. How can I speak to the devs?

Thanks for responding

The Previous Site is www dot Madminutegames dot com
We type it that way to reduce the Spam.
Look on the Left-Hand-Side of the first page for - TC2M SDK\Modding

That Site also has a ton of information about the game and modding the game.

The SDK solution worked.

My costume resolution is...
[Initialization]
Full Screen=0
WinW=1680
WinH=1050

and in another forum I found some compass coordinates...
all,Compass,105,55,,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,,

And it worked, it also did the information on the left side.

Now for the longevity and to respect future people who buy this, I hope they sort these things out

Glad you got it worked out. Right now we are trying to address this on a case-by-case basis, but we are looking into some sort of patch.

And thanks for sharing what fixed it.

I can give more information if needed. I believe with mobile Gpu's and windows scaling, there's a slew of setups that clash with older games and sometimes under developed new titles like Cossacks 3

Also helps to remember that this game was released in 2006, three years before the release of Windows 7.
