Colour mouse cursor under X11 (Sam Lantinga)

Color cursor support was implemented as a software surface managed by
SDL, which had the same problems as the existing cursor in fullscreen
hardware single-buffered mode, but all the time. :slight_smile:

I’m certainly not opposed to re-adding support for it to the API, as
long as there are enough back-ends that support it internally.

I would vote for adding it back in if the support was native to the
respective platforms. If the platform does not support colour cursors,
then it should fall back to what it does today.

But who do we need to contact to get the respective back-ends supported,
assuming you add it back in?

This is open source software, if you want a feature like that, dig in
and write it. You might want to discuss the architectural issues and dig
into the code a bit first. But, seriously, if you want it, do it.
