    Title: Starting SotA turns off Windows 7 Pointer Trails
    Reproducible: yes
    Blocker: No
    Details:
    When I start SotA on a Windows 7 system with the mouse cursor Pointer Trails turned on, the moment the app starts running, cursor trails turn off, 100% of the time. I have to go back to the Mouse Properties control panel and click the checkbox twice to get it back. I don't know if this happens on other versions of Windows. It is possible that this is a deep Unity thing, and it might not be possible to fix.
    I would still like to see if people can confirm this for other versions of Windows.
    Steps to Reproduce: Enable pointer trails, start SotA while swishing the mouse around, notice that that the pointer trails stop the moment the the new black game window appears.
    User Specs: Windows 7 x64, Sandy Bridge, 1050Ti
