The Mouse Cursor

  1. Hello, I know this is off-topic and really random, but I actually really like the mouse cursor for the client (the squiggly line) and was wondering if there is anywhere I can download it and make it my windows cursor?

    Thanks :D
  2. You can't download the exact same one afaik, and I haven't been able to find one similar, sorry :/
  3. Here's how to modify the cursor in windows:
    You'll need C# and access to regedit to preform that.

    Here's a bit more on .cur and .ani files:

    Additionally, you can use this functionality to get it to work in a single application:

    Here's a page that suggests you can get the paint to draw a bit longer (aka a trail):

    All in all, you're going to need to dive into C# (C++ look to have some libs too) to get this to work for a single application, then figure out how to get it to run in the desktop.
    SlashnHax and Geashaw like this.
  4. From my basic understanding from ages ago, having a mouse trail to run using Windows' standard custom mouse implementation isn't possible. I'm sure some epic hackery can be done to make it happen, but it would not be compliant with the OS's guidelines and would probably require a background application to always be running. We're glad you love our mouse, but unfortunately we cannot port it to a standalone Windows mouse.
  5. I know you can have mouse trails through the windows control panel. I'm guessing that it's the same image as the regular cursor, but who knows, maybe you can get hacky and dick around with something, but just as Cloud says, this isn't something that will play within what the OS likes.
