Sorry for the question.. a lack of a search function hinders me. I'm wondering if that hardware mouse fix still works with the latest releases or if it doesn't work anymore? Assuming it still does work do I just keep a copy of my exe prior to installing the mouse fix? Just trying to get some clarification here. Thanks.

There is a new software out that doesn't require you to mess around with your .exe file.
I assume that this works with all the new upcoming patches.

I'm using it and it works flawsless. Even gets rid of the micky mouse hand (thank god)

Well, technically that's a flaw, as the client itself has a hardware mouse within it and the program uses your Windows cursor instead of the ingame mouse...but, yeah, some people might like that better. I personally want the ingame mouse as I miss all the feedback from it, so I'll be using this until Cliff updates his patch (or SE finally implements a toggle option).

I'd use the windower but I'm afraid of getting banned or hacked. Reassure me

The only thing I can do is link you to this thread so you can see feedback there: http://www.ffxivcore.com/topic/14547-new-windower-now-with-hardware-mouse-v031-update/

Other than that, you'll just have to reverse engineer it, or PM the guy on the forums.

Personally, I'm using an alternate account just for the FFXIV beta due to the day 1 OB screwups, so I have nothing to lose.

Edit: Thread is now stickied and a moderator is using the program.

It's awsome isn't it :). If you want to keep the mickey mouse hand you can always click on the DirectX tab in the Windower XIV launcher and uncheck Hide software cursor. I wouldn't know why someone would though :P

Then do what the guy said to do right above your comment.

doesnt work, because the hardware mouse overlaps the software cursor. you're stuck with an ugly windows triangle in the pretty game. not cool


so, again, who is this guy who made it and why do we all trust him with this

The only issue I have with the Windower is just that, you have to run the game windowed. Which performs worse graphically than running fullscreen. Also you don't get Crossfire at all windowed, and SLI supposedly works, but poorly.
