Mouse not responding
win 7 64bit
logitech g15 keyboard and mx laser mouse
Geforce gtx670
Game loads and the sacred mouse pointer shows but does not respond.
Have googled and tried solutions offered from this board and others without positive results.

Try alt-tabbing and going back into the game. If the screen remains black, move the mouse around - chances are you'll hear the "clicks" when hovering over the menu buttons. I get this occasionally - usually blind-click the "quit" button to force the game into showing the Y/N prompt, then continue on with the game.
Also try updating drivers.

Do you see the menu or just a black screen? I've had the issue of a visible but non-interactive menu screen for a while now. Sock's suggestion of alt-tabbing worked fine in the past.

I am thinking this is due to the intro videos because after installing the community patch, I no longer see the videos nor have this issue.

I can see the screen. The game cursor does not move. I can move my mouse and watch for it to light up a command screen, like start game, and it will run but silll no mouse cursor.

Drivers are updated. Alt tabbing does not help.

Thanks for the suggestions. Will keep trying.
Try turning off hardware cursor in the mouse options. also, try running it in windowed mode.

And how are yous supposed to turn off the hardware cursor when you can't see the mouse pointer to select the option?

having same issue
i realized tho that the mouse IS there we just cant see it
if i move my mouse around i can see it highlight the menu options but its invisible
which makes it almost impossible to use

I have the same problem. The mouse cursor is there but it's invisible. /facepalm

Same problem here, with and without Community-Patch, with and without PhysX, With and without XP SP3 Compatibility Mode. Running as Admin with UAC disabled. I use just the common WIndows mouse drivers (who installs mouse drivers nowadays since WIndows XP? - rhetorical question). Alt-Tabbing does not help as well. Looks like freeing up 13GBs will solve the problem forever.

I couldn't be bothered with the game so I uninstalled it.

I had the mouse problem as well and what solved it for me was changing the font size in Win 7. I run 2560x1440 on my monitor with the font normally at 150%. Changing it to 125% lets the mouse work in Sacred 2.

I've switched to a 27" iMac since my last post so I won't be playing this crap game very soon.

thanis so much , that did the trick changing font size. Really good game and a bargain at this price , Enjoying it alot. It actually looks quite stunning in 1440p

I'm also on Windows 7 and this fixed it. Took me a while to figure out how to do it though. So here it is...

Right click on the desktop.
Choose Screen Resolution.
In the Screen Resolution window, click "Make text and other items larger or smaller".
In the Display window, choose Medium - 125%.
Click Apply.
Play Game.
