Community “Turns On” Hardware Mouse

One of the biggest problems for Final Fantasy XIV  gamers it seems is the mouse. It’s laggy. Requests have been made to Square Enix regarding a hardware mouse but until this point, nothing has been done about it.

Cliff over at has taken it upon himself to create a patch for Final Fantasy XIV that will do exactly what players have been asking for: a hardware mouse. It works wonderfully.

Hopefully this is something that Square Enix will implement in time for the game’s launch later this month because quite honestly, it needs it. It shouldn’t be too hard though as Cliff states that essentially, only a single variable was changed to allow for the hardware mouse to operate. It’s interesting to think about why Square Enix hasn’t turned it on yet considering the high demand for a hardware mouse.
