    Good news!
    Version 2.0 of the Win8spinner cursor is ready:

    changes/fixes:
    +increased ball size to improve visibility and roundness on small size.
    +the cursor spinners are now larger and visibility is enhanced.
    +orange and yellow colors were fused to something called pumpkin.
    +animation speed is increased to match more with the original animation from OS startup.

    The black white animated preview:
    Click image for larger version
    This preview is compressed and misses the roundness of the edges from original cursors.
    Is a preview. See here the final look:
    Click image for larger version
    Click image for larger version

    The ball size is increased at the maximum possible size.
    So this version is final.

    Cursors are available in:
    +Light Blue
    +Red
    +Green
    +Pumpkin
    +Magenta
    +Purple

    Get the color(s) you like from the zip attachments.

    Enjoy.

    I've played with the default aero cursor in Win8 and thought I add some other colors besides the default one:

    They are to be used with the default cursor schemes (containing the rest of pointers).
    The new colored ones are found in the attached zip, for anyone who is interested.

    Cheers

    Other cursor follow-ups?
    How about Aero in it's ultimate form... (conceptual previews below, extra large 80px)

    -that would be the spinner from Media Center, if you ask me:

    Click image for larger version

    -among some interesting combo's, we can do this:

    Click image for larger version
    to provide all colors in one, for instance.


    The cursor sized files are found in next post.

    I like the effect this one gives!

    As usual, get the needed files from the zip attachment.

    I've managed to get a border around the spinning balls.

    Back to the darker pointers, version 2 of the Win8Spinner:

    Black:

    Added Red theme:

    That should be it. All pointers included in zip.

    Win8spinner White Version fix 2.2:

    Click image for larger version

    This time, the circles match the pointer (black border) and the visibility is increased.
