[Bug]
I've just installed the game the other day from disk. I made sure to get the initial 2.02 patch. From there I installed the 2020 patch. However when the game launches and I read the first menu, I can't see my cursor.

I redownlaoded Hook Setup Tool as advised but to no avail. Now I get an error before after hitting play although the game does still launch.
I've tried using other DDraw files to no avail.

I'm not really sure what else to try. Does anyone have any ideas?

Issue is now solved. Buying digital copy has brought back the cursor.
Thanks Ace Antilles.

I recommend a reinstall.
Cursor missing is nothing to do with hooks.
Don't update them after the Update 5.6

Would also recommend you pick up the GoG digital copy to make it simpler and no patching needed.

Okay, I think I will wait to buy digital copy. I attempted a reinstall but still had no luck.
