For the most extreme cursor size possible, I have created a fully animated cursor set which is 256x256 pixels in size. That is the absolute maximum resolution for cursors. Windows displays cursors in 32x32 pixels.

The reason why I made this cursor set so huge is because I wanted this set to be supersized and unique. In addition to that, those cursors look extremely smooth with 100% anti-alliasing. The only way to achieve super smooth cursors is to make them 256x256 pixels in size. That is, the more pixels and the better the resolution. The hotspots for some cursors are set to 128x128 pixels to position them properly in the middle of the hotspot selection point.

This cursor set is fully animated with light lime and medium sea-lime green, which gives this cursor set a lot of brightness and attraction for other people.

I have originally planned on making the "Busy" and "Working In Background" cursors using 13 animation frames but that was causing the file size to get too large. As a result, I could not upload those two cursors. Then, I had to nerf the file size by re-creating those two cursors from scratch and re-upload them. Those two cursor roles now have 7 animation frames.

I did not draw out the hand cursor out myself because it was far too difficult to make it perfect, so what I have done is to download a transparent 256x256 png image file to my computer and imported the hand cursor in a new 256x256 pixels canvas and copied and pasted the hand cursor there. The final touch was to flood fill the hard shaped cursor with two lime green colors.

This cursor set took lots on long thought and imagination to accomplish. Through trial and error, I have managed to successfully create a perfect supersized cursor set that shines lime a mirror on the wall.

I name this beaufiful cursor set "Maximum Size 256x256". This cursor set has a total of 15 cursor roles, so its complete. Please note that it may take a long time to download this cursor set due to larger than normal file size.

If you have any questions regarding this dazzling cursor set, please don't be afraid to ask me.

Thank you for downloading and enjoy this superb set of cool cursors.

The particular reason why this set is so smooth is because it has 256x256 pixels in size. That huge number of pixels makes all the cursor roles hyper smooth. Like I said, the smoothness comes from the quantity of pixels horizontally and vertically on the canvas itself.

Please note that I am not a noob. All my cursor sets have their hotspots in the right place. If a hotspot is wrongly positioned, I will immediately replace it to its correct placeholder point.

This cursor set is animated with two types of green gradients. One is lime green and the other is sea green. Both combined together act like a force of nature when it comes to the clarity of work that I have put in to create this amazing cursor set. I did put a lot of effort into this cursor set when I created it like with all my other cursor sets that I created myself.

As for the future, I cannot tell when my next cursor set will be available, but for sure, when new ideas comes to my mind, I will put them into practice and create the cursor sets accordingly.

Ok, the main reason why these cursors look so blurry is because the cursors are in a size that Windows doesn't support them, max size is 48x48. Otherwise, Windows will need to resize the cursors to 32x32 or 48x48 if the PC display big. Maybe you could add support for 32x32 and 48x48?

The problem here is that the cursors are ridiculously big.

I also noticed that some frames aren't even necessary, that might complicate the process of converting the cursor to other sizes manually, and make it take longer. If you want to make it flash with 2 colours, then use only 2 frames.

It is a shame that Windows does not support this custom size. Have you tried to see if Windows 10 supports this size? On my computer, there are no problems with how those cursors are displayed.

As for the frames, there are two frame colors but the frames are repeated so that the Busy cursor does a full color cycle. Other cursors have repeated frames to properly balance out the color cycle of all cursor roles.

Could you add support for 32x32 and 48x48 at least?

user icon RIDDLER registered user on September 25th 2020

Sorry, I can't because the file sizes would get too big to upload.
