Hi,

I just got Sleeping Dogs for PC and I'm using a gamepad for it to play. The issue I have is the mouse pointer will not disappear from screen. It's right in the middle of the screen. I don't use the mouse because this game I play through xbmc advanced launcher. The gamepad has no issues I control everything fine with it. Can anyone help on how to turn it off the mouse pointer

...damn, I came here expecting a quirky April Fools story.

What a disappointment!

I found a solution to this issue because Batman: Arkham City did the same thing on the map screen.

This does the trick. It'll hide your mouse cursor until you re-execute it. You'll need AutoHotkey and you'll have to look into setting key combinations with it if you don't like the default.

Just move the cursor to the bottom left/right of the screen so you can no longer see it?

I don't think you understand yea I can move the mouse to corner but this PC not your average desktop. I use a HTPC with remote so yea it's pain in ass to get up from couch and move the mouse..Call me lazy but if I was gonna do that might as well use the dam thing..lol

I ad this issue with Skyrim. What I did:


Find the sleeping dogs executable. If it is under steam is should be

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\SleepingDogs HKShip.exe

Right click > Properties > compatibility tab - check "Disable Visual Themes".

Click OK. Run game. Report back.


As I said, this worked for me with Skyrim. I have no idea if it will help with sleeping dawgz!

Hope it helps.
