Some Blue replies to a common fan-complaint; the difficulty in picking out the cursor during chaotic, explosion-filled combat. In short, let’s get some better cursor visibility in Diablo 3!

    Implement a Cursor customization option please. I’m colour blind and given the amount of action on screen, especially in a groups. I so often loose track of the cursor and hence either die or become some what useless to my team for X amount of time.
    Hey VINEUK – thank you for sharing your experience and thanks everyone for your feedback on this customization option. We will highlight this request with our devs as a very valid quality of life improvement that is especially important for our fellow colour blind players 🙂

    We will update you on the possibility of implementation of this option as soon as we have some info to share.

    Hey everyone – thanks for your patience – I just wanted to reassure you that the request for this option has not been dismissed.

    We simply don’t have any info to share from our dev team regarding this yet but will surely update you in this thread as soon as we have received it.

    news-fry-not-sure-cursorOk im gaming on a 30″ display 2560×1600 res like many people do and im having trouble locating the mouse cursor when there is action and graphics filling up my screen. I miss with my meteor because i can find the cursor i cant be as good as i would like to be because i cant be because i cant see the cursor.

    Im having to move it into one of the 4 corners of my screen so i can locate it and then its tricky to find even when i do that.

    Cursor need the option to double its size and make it bright green or bright yellow or something because the colour and size it is now its very hard to locate it and we need to see where it is on screen to be able to play well.

    Wuluxar: Hey guys, as Vineuk has pointed out there is a nice thread on this already so I will lock this one down.

    Both threads are from the EU forums, but I’m sure the US devs have heard similar things all along. It wouldn’t seem like a real complicated thing to fix or add in, so I worry this is one of those “it’s our beautiful game and we like it how it is” issues, plus the fact that global programming changes (as opposed to tweaking values on a skill) seem to take forever. Remember how we went a a year+ in D3v when you couldn’t see all all active buffs or debuffs since only a few icons could show at once above the skill bar at the bottom of the screen?

    So yes, options for larger or different colored or blinking or whatever cursor. I am not color blind, but I lose sight of it all the time, especially when playing ranged chars. My DH uses a DiabloWikiKridershot, and with Lightning Ball going out non-stop across screens full of monsters and Bosses and {wiki]Elite Effects[/wiki] it’s really hard to pick out the tiny gray cursor arrow/sword, which I need to deliver the Cluster Bomb on target. It’s worst when you lock onto a target and keep shooting at it while it moves around, so your projectiles are firing somewhere other than where your cursor is pointing, and then you stop firing at that enemy and try to figure where you are pointing…

    Anyone else have issues with losing sight of the cursor during combat? Any tips or tricks for workarounds while we wait/hope the Bliz programmers can make a fix? #QualityofLife
