    With thanks to gsldol and finnbough for indicating
    this issue.

    With windows 10, tested with version 1903,
    setting bladesoftime.exe to 'win xp sp3' compatible
    causes the mouse pointer to disappear...
    My apologies only recently was I able to test this

    So for clarity on windows 10 do not set
    bladesoftime.exe to a compatibility mode.

    With windows 7 set bladesoftime.exe compatibilty
    to 'win xp sp3'.

    I can't recommend this mod enough. The game looks so much better with it. Thank you very much! =)

    After copying files, the mouse does not work in the game, how to fix it?

    Everything else is fine

      Odd.
      I am speculating but it could be the dinput8.dll file
      How ever if it is removed reshade will no longer work
      only the helix shader tweaks.
      The dinput8.dll is part of the ultimate asi loader which
      seems to be updated see:
      https://github.com/ThirteenAG/Ultimate-ASI-Loader/releases

      Maybe in time I will update the package not really sure how ever
      if this will adres the issue.

      rename d3d9.dll to d3d9.bak can fix it, it's no the fault of dinput8.dll

      I found a tricky work around:
      Set to window mode in-game. Close the game. Enter Big Picture Mode of steam, launch the game in Big Picture Mode window, when it ask for admin privilege, left click "yes" button several time quickly. You will stay in steam window, while the game will load in background. Then swicth to game window, the mouse will work. And I use "Windowed Borderless Gaming" to make the game borderless full screen.

      'rename d3d9.dll to d3d9.bak'
      That will cause helix to no longer function

      The steam big picture mode might be a viable solution,
      for some, kudos for suggesting it!

      Just in case it was overlooked from the description:
      Set bladesoftime.exe to 'win xp sp3' compatible for helix.

      Arrgghh windows 10.

      will change this in the description.

    I'm a noob when it comes to modding and I found the instructions frustrating, I gave up after spending an hour trying to understand. thanks for the effort.
