Cursor  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.4.8.4
by: Torhal [More]
_Cursor adds detailed, customizable cursor trails to your UI. If you've ever lost track of your mouse in a hectic battle, or if you're looking to put the finishing touches on your stylized UI, look no further. _Cursor uses World of Warcraft's built-in spell effects to offer a variety of preset cursor looks while leaving your system's resources free for more important things.

Details

The Cursor

Each character's cursor can be customized to match that character's style. They can have multiple layers, so you can mix and match different styles. Each layer can show one of many preselected effects, or you can choose your own “Custom” model effect from the game's files. In addition, you can scale, rotate, and move layers around to stack them up in unique ways.

Saved Sets

A “Set” is a pre-packaged cursor, like a template that you can save and load between characters. _Cursor comes with a few default sets, such as the “Energy Beam” default, pictured to the right. But if a lightning cursor doesn't fit with your character, feel free to save your old set and create something more fitting from scratch.


Options

_Cursor's extensive configuration is available in the Interface Options window, or simply with the “/cursor” slash command.

Sets

Save, load, and delete cursors for your other characters to use. Select your saved sets from the dropdown menu, or type a name in directly.

Cursor

Lets you preview and edit each layer of your active cursor. Every layer has a tab associated with it, and they can be toggled on or off using the Model Enabled checkbox.

Preset Type
The category of preset effects, such as “Particle Trail” or “Glow”. With a category selected, see the Preset Name dropdown box below to browse effects in that category. The “Custom” category allows you to specify any model file's path within the game.
Preset Name
This dropdown lists all preset effects in the chosen Preset Type. Select one to preview and use it for the active layer.
File Path
Shows the location of the current effect model. When the “Custom” Preset Type is selected, you may edit this path freely. However, you must leave out the file extension.
The checkered box on the right side previews the layer behind a dummy cursor. The preview is animated, and can be sped up or stopped by clicking on it. The self-explanatory slider bars to the left and below the preview move the cursor up/down and left/right in relation to the cursor, respectively.

The Scale slider controls how large the effect should be drawn, ranging from half-size to four times normal size. Lastly, the Facing slider controls the direction that the model looks, where moving the slider from one end to the other will rotate it completely.

Still no word from Blizzard on the custom cursor breakage in 3.1

Re: Missing Cursors in 3.1.0.2

Originally posted by Saiket
Just a quick note about the latest version, 3.1.0.2:

If any of your cursors turn into blue and white checkered boxes after you upgrade, that means those presets were removed. You can either disable them or pick new presets to replace them in the options window.
The presets that had to be removed are all of the "Indicators" (they loop repeatedly in 3.1) and the "Ring, swirl" Glow preset (looks like it was removed from the game). One indicator preset did survive, however; The "Periodic glint" preset can now be found in the "Particles" category.
That's a real shame. It was one of my favorite parts of the cursor. I did notice the looping, though. I take it there's no way to restore the original indicator behavior?

I would be extra cautious with loading unofficial MPQ archives. That technique is often used for far less innocent modifications to WoW (the bannable type of modifications). It may be worth it to simply wait for an official fix, to avoid any chance of account action.

Saiket, Kepi is a well known and trusted member of the addon community, though normally I completely agree with you. I opened the file in an MPQ Editor just to be safe anyway myself and it's all clean.

Kepi is a sweetheart.

Oh I don't doubt that the patch-F.MPQ file is clean; I'm simply concerned that Warden (Blizzard's cheat police program) will mistake it for a cheat and drop the banhammer. Sure, it's a long shot, but I personally wouldn't risk it.

Nice work!

I'd love to see an option added to only use the cursor in combat (or perhaps use two different sets, one for in combat, and one for out?). I tend to lose my cursor in big battles, so want something that screams "Here I am!" for that; but those same settings are a bit distracting while, for example, browsing the AH.

Thanks!

Changing cursor size

Great Add-On I really appreciate all the folks who make these cool little things for us to use. I do have a request or a question about if there is way to add a scale button for the actual size of the physical cursor because I play at 1900x 1080 on a 42 in tv and the cursor is super small.

I know it has to do with editing the API _ setcursor in the LUA but I don't know the first thing about editing LuA.

I don't think the cursor graphic can be resized, even with SetCursor. I believe it takes 32x32 pixel images or something along those lines, and nothing larger. The only solution I can think of is for you to lower your screen resolution and crank the UI scale down. It would look a little worse, but the cursor would stay big.

Thanks!

Thank you for a wonderful mod. As melee DPS and at my advanced age (well, not that old but I've got a lot of miles on the odometer!) I found that I lost my cursor in mass trash pulls and on boss fights with all of the AOE effects flying around on a pretty regular basis.

_cursor has been a great help to me in keeping up on situational awareness in Raids. Just put in a small donation via Pledgie. Thanks again!

I use right-click (hold) to turn my character, and that causes the cursor to disappear. On hectic fights I've often lost track of it... no more.

Thanks for the mod!
