More than likely a graphics driver issue.
If you are using a Nvidia card (non FX) then I suggest the 45.23 drivers and not 45.33 as in the readme file. 45.23 is pretty good and gives you perfect mode with the Ti4xxx range of cards.
The later nvidia drivers are from what I have heard ok for FX cards.
ATI cards I am not sure what the best one is but perhaps somone else can suggest.
Post your system specs hardware specs for more help also.

Ow... the horror.

It is real difficult to get your mous pointer working in FB, when it is still in the windows desktop.

to you again.

Simple solution to the mouse problem - hit the chat key and it will come back (in a multiplayer game). Use ESC in single player...
