    Cursor resolution sizes on specific DPI settings


    DPI scale (%) Optimal cursor size (px)
    100% 32x32
    150% 48x48
    200% 64x64
    250% 80x80
    300% 96x96
    350% 112x112
    400% 128x128
    450% 144x144
    500% 160x160

    Click image for larger version


    warning   Warning

    High DPI issues

    Do not try to use a value above 150% if you don't (exactly) know what you're doing. Those values only work nice on large resolution monitors HD - UHD sizes. 300% - 500% can render your UI on screen unusable/unreadable and things will need to be reset.

    Alright then!

    It can take roughly from a few days to a week or two, even more, depending how much time I can work on it.

    But good to see we have similar taste for colors.

    A week, or two or three is well worth the wait. Take your time ... OHYEA for the same colors,,,,

    Aero8-Yellow


    The first version I've managed to finish is the XL one. We needed a base theme for the yellow pointers so this is it.

    @Sturgess
    I hope you still use the super-sized versions, then here it is:

    Click image for larger version

    The standard pointers are included. Note that I always add precision-select-cross, text-cursor and unavailable-cursor to the pack (also better for a consistent scheme install).

    Other pointers like my W8 dotted spinner from the previous posts are still on the drawing table (or should I say re-colouring table).
    Sorry for the delay.

    XL version of Aero8-Yellow
    How to use:
    Download and extract the attached zip.
    Right click on the install.inf to install.

    Next time we'll try to focus on the L en medium-sized versions and the dotted-spinner(s) too.

    UPDATE:
    The scheme name was renamed adding extra-large in the name, otherwise it would mean this is the normal-sized cursor scheme: modified install.inf file.
    This should fix the naming if the normal edition of this cursor gets installed.

    Install.inf (right-click-install) is installing the cursor scheme with the name "Aero8-Yellow (extra-large)".

    Cheers!

    Win8Spinner Yellow (XL)

    Here it is: the dotted-spinner XL-sized pointer.

    Requires: Aero8-Yellow (XL) released in a previous post.

    Info about the previews below:
    The previews are created from the same (XL) cursor files. All depends on your DPI settings.
    For 100% DPI (default) you see the 32x32px on screen and for 200% you see the 64x64px. Of course the 48x48px layer exists as well at 150% but just wasn't added as a preview below.

    preview 32x32px:

    Click image for larger version Click image for larger version

    preview 64x64px:

    Click image for larger version Click image for larger version

    The busy spinner is called 'all' instead of 'xl' since it can be used for any other scheme (L or normal). I didn't wanted to create smaller version because those balls get too small and quality decreases considerably.

    Usage:
    -get the attached zip and extract it: it includes the two ANI files
    -place the two ANI files in the system cursor folder, where the other cursors are located
    -go to mouse properties -> pointers tab
    -select 'busy' and 'working' states and browse to where the cursors are placed to select desired file

    That's it for XL yellow.

    Cheers!

    I have a request.....I would appreciate it if someone could make me a black and red themed cursor set. The higher the quality the better. If you could modify some of the stock cursors so they have a sharper look. That would be great, And a red glow would kick @55. Thank you in advance.
