help exporting and altering Classic wow interface art

I was able to extract a bunch of files using the "ExportInterfaceFiles art" command with the -console feature, however, this seems to have given me ALL of the wow files and is not specific to WoW Classic.

I tried altering a couple simple files such as the in-game mouse pointer. I created the corresponding folder in my interface game folder, and dropped the updated artwork file in there. This didn't work.

I am not sure if this is because the interface files I extracted are for retail wow rather than Classic, or if I am just missing a step in order for my altered UI art to update in game. Any help on this would be highly appreciated!

Graphics files, if you want to replace something, must be the same exact size as the file you are replacing, and they must be a .tga or.blp (Blizzard native graphic file name). AFAIK, the cursor can't be modified in any way (the cursor itself can't be, but I think that you can do other things to it {like add a "glow" to it or add a trail or something}). Oh, and the size of the graphic MUST be a power of 2 on each side (which it will be if you make it the same exact size). Oh, yeah, I forgot, you have to keep it named the same, too.
Ahhhh, the vagueries of the aging mind. Wait.... What was I saying?
