Flickering, Stuttering, or Lagging Mouse

If your cursor is flickering, or if you're seeing gamepad prompts despite not using a gamepad, first try disconnecting any gamepads that are plugged into the computer. If this doesn't resolve the issue, try the following:

On Steam: 

  • Right-click on Hades in your Steam Library
  • Select 'Properties...'
  • Press the button that says 'Set Launch Options...'
  • Enter the following: /IgnoreGamepads=true

On Epic Games Store:

  • Select 'Settings'
  • Scroll down to Hades under 'Manage Games' and select it
  • Toggle 'Additional Command Line Arguments'
  • Enter the following: /IgnoreGamepads=true


Invisible Mouse

If your mouse cursor doesn't appear at all while playing Hades, make sure that you aren't running the computer program "f.lux". This program can cause compatibility issues with games in general, including Hades.


Mouse Lag or Beeping

First, try disabling Mouse Lock in the game's Settings menu. This setting can cause the cursor to become sluggish for some players.
