Just put together a few animated cursors (rotating at 60 fps) for Windows using the old osu! cursor image and some imagemagick wizardry :v

Easier said than done to post screenshots :P, but here's the base image:


And what you get:


(Recommended to use _slow for normal cursor, _hand for 'pointer'/link/hand cursor, _busy for background busy cursor)

The final cursor is 32x32px due to Windows limitations (roughly half of the cursor size in osu)

Definitely does have some novelty, I'll give it that lol

Haha definitely using that on my laptop now.

Using it. It is surprisingly smooth. Most novelty cursors I get are choppy, but 60 fps is awesome.

Great job!

Yay!

Thank you. I've been looking for something like this. :D

I've been looking for a new cursor, and this one is small/cute enough; awesome! :)

Im surprised this works for average use on the computer. Perhaps you can create a mouse set that turns the spinning aero sphere on loading times into the osu cursor, so the normal cursor still looks the same?

Neither of I. Can't say I even thought about this being done ever. Still pretty awesome though, and I'm using these cursors now :p

This may be the first time I actually changed my cursor on Windows 7 now that I think about it

Feels really odd to use this, but I'm sure I'll get used to it. Its cute, I like it.

OMG thanks!

Can you tell me how you got imagemagick to create the cursor? Like pasting the commandline to pastebin.com or something ^^ i would love to have my own cursor :D (i can post it back here if anyone wants it)

Very late reply but for anyone interested I guess...

Autohotkey to generate rotated frames: (150 w/ multiplier = slow mode, 89 and no multiplier = fast)
Loop, 150
{
rotation := (a_index-1) *0.59602649
Runwait C:\imagemagick\convert.exe -virtual-pixel transparent -distort SRT %rotation% -background transparent cursor.png pointer/pointer%a_index%.png
}
Autohotkey to convert frame files to spritesheet
derp := ""
Loop, 150
{
derp=%derp% pointer/pointer%a_index%.png
}

Runwait C:\imagemagick\montage.exe %derp% -geometry +1+1 -background transparent -tile x2 point_animated.png
Then I simply loaded the spritesheet into Axialis CursorWorkshop and cast some spells to produce the final .ani
