Cant play with friends - mouse cursor bug
Every time I try to play a match with a friend I get to the team selection and cant click anything. Once spawned in the match I have the cursor still visible and cannot aim or click anything. Offline works fine, and Ive tried disabling and changing the MOTD (as recommended elsewhere) to no avail.

WHY!?

Yes, dear fellow CS:GOer. I am currently experiencing the same problem when trying to play with my beloved friends. A fix would be greatly appreciated.

I'm experiencing the same problem as soon as i start up a game with a friend.
If i simply pick any online game it's fine, but as soon as i try to connect with somebody in my friends list, i get this bug and can't use my mouse at all. Just shows the static white cursor :s

Sincerely hope there's a fix for this bug...

isn't there a console command available to fix that? that would at least "temporary fix" it^^ My console does still work

Firrst it was connecting me and my friend to a random server, now it creates our own but this bug won't let us play. So sad :(

1 - Activate console
2 - type "cl_mouseenable 1" - You get acces to the mouse ingame again but cursor still shows up
3 - type "cursortimeout 0" - Hide the cursor, remember to set it to a value >0 to see it again in the menus

When we get this glitch, my friends and I cannot activate console, we can't hit escape - we have to Ctrl-Alt-Del out. Thanks to noah for the info, but even when I change the console to be a different button - I can ot get it to activate :(
So much for buying this game if I can't play it with friends. I hold Lan parties.

Agreed!! Atleast i'm not alone, was really thinking about buying for a group of friends

Pressing ESC twice at team select works for me.
DisgruntledGrrl Nov 3, 2012 @ 5:28pm 
Yeah I've tried tapping the frigging escape key. Nothing. Tab works but ` and ESC don't register on this frigging screen. I thought it was my husband's Alienware keyboard effing things up on his machine but same on my Razor.

well... just bind the console to F3 for example... the game still ignores the console key under certain circumstances... eg. as a spectator (u need to press ctrl, thus open the overview first)
DisgruntledGrrl Nov 4, 2012 @ 8:32am 
Yes I did try that. I used Q to bind. The damn thing just doesn't care. I read in another thread that is appears the game wants a controller input. That's crazy if it's true.

try renaming the motd.txt file to motd1.txt in your Steam\steamapps\common\Counter-Strike Global Offensive\csgo folder.
That fixed it for me.

the motd.txt file points to a blog, if something is posted to the blog, which csgo cant handled, the mousepointer bug happens. changing the filename prevents csgo to connect to that blog.
