Some decently smooth animations. I like.
Almost missed the one for 'drag' but when I get a new cxp, I tend to do things like hold down the left or right checking it out.

Uh, okay -- duh-eee!

The .zip file has a .CurXPTheme extension.

Awright. I remember reading somewhere why this is done, but I keep forgetting. Too many synapses have been sacrificed to communing with real-live Relics, I suppose.

Ah, but that was the sixties, seventies, and eighties. These are the naughties and things are different now -- including me!

Take care!

Okay, I see, now, and have successfully installed it and am using it.

I don't have to understand the bit with renaming the files (insert emoticon for puzzled look here); all I need to do, really, is simply to remember that that's how a lot of skinners do it. It's a work-around for something but I don't know exactly what for.

Yes, this is one of the more beautifully animated cursors I've seen.

We did some animation when we were teenagers, with a Super-8 camera (the film kind, not the later videotape kind). We had been very impressed by the Tournee de Animation circa 1970, and I, by this one specific work in it, which has since colored the very essence of my self-expression in many ways. It takes a special eye to be able to pull off a successful animation, and you have what it takes (also the patience, which goes without saying, in that you must experiment again and again and again till it comes out the way you imagine it.

The thing I think CursorXP really needs to be able to do, to make the cursor fully animatable (if you will), is enable an animation to loop all the way back to where it came from. For example, when resizing a window, your cursor assumes an entirely different shape. When it's done resizing, *Flick!* the cursor immediately assumes its default shape. It morphs to the desired shape, but it doesn't morph back. As far as I can see (and I could be wrong, here), this is a deficiency in CursorXP.

I predict that making CursorXP able to support coding that would allow an image to morph from a default image and then morph back to that default image would bring a whole new level of integrity to CursorXP (and to truly fancy animated cursors as a whole).

Thanks for this (the gold one). I'm going to be using this one for a while, I can tell.

Citizen lhudd,

Here's what I did:

(Please forgive my pedantry, but I'm a retired technical writer. It's far better to say too much than it is to leave out a crucial step thinking that "everybody know THIS"!!)

1. Click the "Download" button at the top of this page and download the file. It will be named:
Then choose Save to Disk. Remember which folder you saved it in.

2. Find the file you downloaded and RENAME it from
IMPORTANT! Leave the file like this! Do not rename it back to its original name!

3. Open your new .ZIP archive file (now called "Reliccursors.ZIP") using a ZIP utility, such as Windows XP Explorer, WinZIP, WinRAR, or the little Zip utility you can get from Stardock. (I forget what it's called or even how to get it. Hopefully one of the other readers will tell us.)

4. In this ZIP archive file, you will see two CursorXP Theme files:
Gold relic.CurXPTheme
Silver relic.CurXPTheme

The confusion lies in the fact that in order to post the .ZIP archive file, he had to rename it using the very same extension (.CurXPTheme) that we use to name CursorXP Themes! What you download and what you install are two different kinds of files that just happen to have the same extension.

5a. "Plan A": EXTRACT the two CursorXP Theme files to the directory where you store your downloaded CursorXP Themes, and then double-click and RUN the two files. This will install both cursor themes.

-- or --

5b. "Plan B": Install the cursor themes by double-clicking and running the two files directly from the .ZIP archive file. Some systems do not allow this: the Windows-XP .ZIP support allows it, so does WinZIP.

I hope this helps. Let us know either way, okay?

TIP: Most (but not all) Stardock Theme files are themselves renamed .ZIP archive files. If you take a real .CurXPTheme file (one that installs when you double-click it) such as:
Gold relic.CurXPTheme
and if you rename it to the .ZIP extension, you can open it up it up in a .Zip utility and then examine the .PNG graphics files that lgp85 used to build the animation!

Take care!
