    Thank you Tony!

    It had to match with the current badges and stuff.

    Cheers!

    Multi-layered Animated Cursors


    Harder to do than so far...
    Just started to work on this level, I've made two files for the Delta45 - Neon-Orange2 theme.

    The ANI-files include the theme's 4 layers 96x96, 64x64, 48x48 and 32x32. ready for the higher DPI just as mentioned in the Delta45 theme.

    Previews:

    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

    That's 808kb per file, biggest cursor size I've made... so details matter.
    Both files included in zip. Manual installation required.

    Cheers!

    Hopachi,
    Thanks for all the great work you've done on Cursors. I have a question is there a chance you can make some of the cursors larger in size. I personally love the AERO RED cursor just wish it was maybe 50 % larger. The current size gets lost for me when I swing it across 4 different monitors... I cant use the aero animated pointer because when I swing it across from one laptop to another laptops screens the circling balls freeze up. My problem on that is that one laptops runs WIN 8.1 and the other is WIN 7. SO if there is a way to enlarge the size of a Red Aero Cursor , Id love it.

    Thanks...

    Hello Sturgess,

    Welcome to EightForums.

    Aero Red?
    Is it this one, right?

    Are you using higher DPI?
    DPI Scaling Size - Change for Displays in Windows 8.1
    (steps 5 to 7)

    That one isn't ready for higher dpi yet but it's one of my favorites too.

    I'll see what I can do for that.

    WOOOO NELLIE,......lol


    I tried the steps 5 - 7 and No way , wow did that mess up my other work programs,,,, SO the DPI at a higher setting is a no go..

    The base windows cursor program does have a larger pointer but its only in white and gets lost over a few monitors.

    Any way you can create one of the AERO RED so its larger ? Or maybe I missed one that was larger in the 9 pages of this link. I love the animated one but when it switches across from one laptop to the 2nd laptop which is on Win 7 the animation freezes , so a animated one is a no go.

    Let me know what if any options are there.

    Again thanks for the rapid reply.

    Ok sorry about the DPI settings: it's meant to increase size globally not just the pointers. This means you are using a larger pointer on normal DPI.
    Hopefully you went back to standard DPI.

    No, the aero red in larger size wasn't posted so far.

    I'm gonna make a red version having the base cursor sizes (32x32 and 48x48 but there are even bigger ones available, depending which one you use*).

    Click image for larger version

    There is standard (what we have here posted), large and extra large. The large and extra large need to be done too. However this will take some time to complete.

    I'll have them posted in this thread when finished.
