    Delta45 - Neon-Green

    Some guys like Hulk and the Mask would probably like a green version as well. Actually I like one too.
    Green seems to be the best visible color to the human eye.

    With some previous colors and black and white, I think the Delta45 theme is complete now*.

    *Nope: Purple/Violet one is released as well:

    Update:

    Black Green Binary

    Nothing changed to the colors and pointers.
    An install.inf file had been added to the theme.
    Right click to install is way easier than manual copy-pastes.

    Again, this cursor uses only 4-bit color so that explains the small file size.

    The theme that was designed for this pointer is here:
    Special Themes (AeroLite and High Contrast variations)

    Cheers!

    Black Yellow Binary

    These are obviously based on the green one and have the same specs and nice contrast.

    Dark-Blue Cyan Binary

    Dark-Red Yellow Binary

    Click image for larger version

    Red Yellow Binary

    Click image for larger version

    All nice variations.
    32x32 and 48x48 px in 4bit color.
    Install.inf file is included in zip.

    I guess this so-called 'binary' cursor-series is complete now.

    Vortex Spinner Concept


    A new idea for another animated cursor (a small selection from tons of shapes and forms).

    The thing was already planned some time ago and the original one comes from preloaders.net.
    I've just added a white border to the shape to increase contrast on different backgrounds.

    So far, we start with (the source) a big enough reference:
    Click image for larger version
    I thought it's a very suitable animation for a cursor. Others may disagree...
    The white border is 2px but not visible on white.
    That should do it.
    Smaller size, other colors... all possibilities.

    Vortex Spinner


    That thing spinning was really something to the eyes! But all went well...

    Here it is mentioned Vortex animation cursor.

    Specs:
    - RGBA color
    - 32x32 size
    - ANI format

    Available in b-w + some colors:

    Click image for larger version Click image for larger version Click image for larger version Click image for larger version Click image for larger version Click image for larger version Click image for larger version Click image for larger version Click image for larger version

    Some looked better than others but the white background here plays a role in that preview as well.

    One of them is called Prism because it has all the colors in a loop.

    Click image for larger version

    Dark borders look bad on light backgrounds so it seems.
    Also to keep in mind is that the previews are GIF's: 256 (8bit) indexed colors while the cursors are actually in 32bit color.

    This file(s) require a manual installation.

    That's all.
    Cheers!

    DMZ Neon Orange


    Back to the cursors!

    Previously released DMZ Neon Blue has a follow-up.

    First I had in mind: Lit Charcoal, Tangerine... but I just go with Orange, for the logic.

    Same specs as the Blue version.
    32x32, 48x48, 64x64

    Previews on black and white backgrounds:

    Usage:

    Installer (inf) included. Right click -> install.

    Cheers

    This is so easy.... I've done more difficult things before( hard customization) .... yet, I had no clue how to manually change pointers. O.o
