First of all, I have A Radeon 9000 64mb video card. because its a laptop i installed drivers version ATI-MobRadeon-M9_V188.8.131.5278 (made specially for amiloD laptop) Ok so now my problem If you don't move the mouse, the pointer in the game disappears. But if you move the mouse, the pointer will flicker as you move the pointer. I am still able to play the game, except for the flickering pointer. I had the same problem with age of empires III and age of mythology, but i could undo the flickering by alt-tabbing (dont believe thats a real word but...) the game. the flickering then stoppen. Allas this doesnt work for civIV. So i looked for a way to get the standard windows mouse in the game (I read a solution for AoE Go to the gfxconfig folder in your aom folder and locate the gfx file for your card. I have the radeon 9000 pro, so I used radeon.gfx. There are some others for specific radeons so look around. Open in notepad and change the value win32Cursor=1 to win32Cursor=0. ) Is something like this possible for civIV, or mabey some other solution to this problem??
