[0.11.0] Deactivated mouse cursor mod makes cursor disappear [RESOLVED 0.11.1]

Post by XJDHDR »

Just noticed this issue but if you have a dfmod that replaces the mouse cursor installed but deactivated, the mouse cursor is invisible after you launch the game from the DFU startup config menu.

You can test this yourself by doing the following. I used DREAM's HUD & MENU module to test this.
  • Start DFU with the DREAM module installed and activated. Once it reaches the DFU startup config menu, you will see that the mouse cursor is using DREAM's version. Make sure the HUD & MENU module is activated.
  • Launch Daggerfall. Once you reach the main menu, the mouse cursor will still be DREAM's replacement.
  • Restart DFU then deactivate the HUD & MENU module. After you do so, you will notice that the game is still using DREAM's replacement cursor.
  • Launch Daggerfall. You will now see that the cursor is invisible. You can still click on things but obviously, it's difficult to know where the cursor is.
  • Exit DFU then completely uninstall the HUD & MENU module. Relauch DFU. After you do so, the game will be using the default Daggerfall cursor in the config menu.
  • Launch Daggerfall. The game will still be using the default cursor.
Finally, I took some photos of what I'm seeing. Screenshots don't capture the mouse cursor.
Spoiler!
This picture is what I see if I have DREAM's HUD & MENU module completely uninstalled:

Edit: Forgot to mention that I'm using Windows 10 x64 if that makes a difference though I suspect the issue is something in the modding API.

If I'm not allowed to post here, let me know and I'll delete! I actually have the opposite problem - even when DREAM is deactivated I still get the DREAM cursor in menus.

Not sure on this one. I'll move to bug reports for follow up later. Cheers!

Which menus are you talking about?

Well this is a known issue for quite some time, I think Ive reported it as well?

Lets start from the end:
Issue 1)
IF DFU has a Mod in the mod folder, which replaces the cursor, than DISABLING the mod is not enough. U must REMOVE the mod from the folder, to get back to vanila cursor.

Issue 2)
If u just disable the mod, u can get to situation described at start (no cursor) or situation described in Issue 1 (modded cursor still present eventho mod is disabled)

To my best knowledge, this has something to do with a DFU reading all mods at runtime, no matter if enabled or not. And in this one specific case - cursor - it behaves in this strange way.

I remember it was discussed thru mails I received from git, where the whole cursor logic was remade by Pango (this is not a accusation mate :) ) - it was in times where modded cursor size was altered so my 64x64 cursor was no longer resized to 32x32 but I had to provide new 32x32 cursor so it was not 2x as big as before this change was implemented.

Thats all I know about this😊

TheLacus has pushed a change that should resolve this in 0.11.1.

Thankyou TheLacus! :)
