Minecraft Mouse Issues (disappearing cursor; invisible pointer)

Reported by: twipley Owned by:
Priority: major Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 4.2.6 Keywords: minecraft mouse cursor pointer problems issues
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: all


Ubuntu host (and lots of others too); XP-x86 guest; Java version does not matter, nor does the version of the game. The issue seems widespread and recognized at large.

[What is Normal] Moving around using the mouse, as with lots of other first-person games, movements are way off whenever mouse integration is enabled. To solve this, HostKey+I has to be pressed in order for it to be disabled.

[What is the problem] However, deactivating mouse integration makes the game playable, up to the point where menus (an integral part of the game) are accessed, at which point there is no crosshair, although a mouse pointer is lacking.

In other words, one has, often several times per minute, to toggle mouse integration on and off, in order for crafting (an integral part of the game) to be performed.

Besides that, the game works fine. LAN servers are ran over here without any problems either. Great frame rate; great experience, besides the irritating (and most-frequent) need to toggle mouse integration.

Mouse-pointer options (such as enabling trails or showing pointer location pressing ctrl) have been tried but have not been of any help, as there are absolutely no sings of the mouse pointer inside menus.

It appears this one is linked to a parent bug:

A workaround is posted here

Requires Minecraft Forge and a bit of moving / copying of files, though.
