Oversized mouse pointer bug still not fixed: https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/14366

Also, why doesn't mouse integration work when the guest input device is set to PS/2 mouse any more? (Win10 x64 on both host and guest).

Back to 5.2.28 then, which is what I've had to use ever since 6.0.0 came out, as not one of the 6.0.x releases has worked properly. At least the mouse clicks register in the right position on screen with this release, unlike 6.0.6, but I'm getting the distinct impression that testing and QA has gone right downhill and that nobody really cares any more.

Please remind me what is wrong with mouse integration, now that the other issue has been fixed. Is there a bug for it?

As far as I can see with macOS 10.14.5 host, VirtualBox 6.0.8 and a Windows 10 guest nothing at all. For reasons I can't recall, I always change the mouse type to PS/2 in my guests so would have noticed if there were problems.

@enlightener
Was it working before? What kind of Bridged mode, over WiFi or over Ethernet? What happens if you downgrade to 6.0.6 or .4?

the Bridged mode is over Ethernet. It is surprising, ffter I have tried to downgrade to 5.2.30, it started to work.
Then I have upgraded to 6.0.6, it continued to work. And then have returned to 6.0.8, it continued to work.

That's what's called a "glitch" ;)
Glad you returned to normalcy, because you were the only user that reported something like that...

On every 6.0.x release so far, mouse integration is greyed out for me in PS/2 mouse mode. if I switch to USB tablet mode, I get the previously mentioned huge mouse pointer bug. All of this is with the appropriate version of the guest additions installed for the particular version of VirtualBox being tested.

I have not yet seen a bug for the mouse integration issue but I can't say for certain that none exists. I have seen it mentioned by others on the forum.

Mouse integration works fine on 5.2.28.

Marko73,
Since this is a thread about issues specifically related to the 6.0.8 release, not the 6.0.0 release, not the 6.0.2 release, not the 6.0.4 release, not the 6.0.6 release, and not a generic thread where you post all your 6.0.x problems, I suggest you open a new thread, with full details and VBox.log.ZIPPED attached for the affected VM, so that it can get more proper attention.
