Animated Mouse pointer demo

I have some code for an animated mouse pointer. It doesn’t do any
clicking for selection yet… In fact it’s really just a pretty demo
right now that shows some neat transparency. (The pointer spins a hoop at
the top to see the underneath layer image behind it.

The animation seems to be flicker free on my machine but I would be
interested to see how it works on other people’s machines.

I will upload it to my server this evening and post the link if anyone is
interested.

(Note the pointer has 20 frames of animation so it may be a large
download, I will convert it to PNG this evening.)

I have been away from my e-mail for about a month (built up to 1,846
messages… yeesh) and was wondering if the link for this was ever posted
here on the SDL list? (Haven’t found it yet, if it was… :wink:
