Cursor disappears between clicks
I'm very new to OpenSesame so I apologize if this is something stupid, but I did some tutorials already and I did search and couldn't find anything about this exact issue.
I have an in-progress program on OpenSesame 3.3.12 with xpyriment backend. It's designed to collect mouseclicks and behave differently based on the cursor_roi variable. In the mouse response settings, the "visible mouse cursor" checkbox is checked. However, when I first start the program, the cursor is not visible until I click somewhere on the screen. Additionally, every time I click anywhere on the screen, whether it is a defined roi or not, the cursor disappears again. Then when I click again, it reappears. It behaves the same with the disappearing and reappearing no matter where I click, but if I click on a defined region of interest when it's invisible, it doesn't register. The cursor_roi variable remains undefined and the cursor appears, almost as if I've just clicked back on a program window after having clicked on another window. It behaved the same way with the psycho backend.
I can't for the life of me figure out why this is happening, but it isn't workable for the experiment. I'd really appreciate any advice. Thanks in advance.
