    Playing the games via steam, unless I change the resolution to lower then back again the mouse cursor does not disappear. So I get two of the on the screen.

    Any ideas why this is happening?

    I think it's related to the game being a cider port. I have the same issue on some cider games.

    Yeah, it usually goes away if you switch focus to another application and then switch back to the game ( while in windowed mode ).

    So is this an OSX bug that can be fixed?

    What is a cider port? I have only ever used windows.

    Cheers, I will try that. For some reason I currently cannot reproduce the bug lol. I am sure it will rear its ugly head though!

    A cider port is a game that is actually the Windows version running through an emulator of sorts (think Wine if you know that), meaning it's not a native OS X app. Mostly these games don't work as fast/well compared to games that are coded natively for OS X, but they are easy to create which is why a lot of companies use it like EA.
