DSC6: Cursor Editing

Thanks to Chipmaster of Cemetech and elsewhere, who wrote me a 600-byte grayscale masked cursor editing routine, you can now have custom cursors throughout Doors CS. No longer a hack into the kernel as it was in DCS 5, the custom cursor works not only in the DCS core but also in the GUI routines, as the cursor is now recalled from the DCS appvar, not the kernel itself. As you can see, I need to do a bit of work integrating the cursor editing into the rest of gui, and I need to edit the properties menu to set up the appvar pointer for the mouse.

As usual, I will be releasing another beta soon, which will probably advance a minor version number to Doors CS 5.7 Beta 1. I will try to get the new beta out later today or early tomorrow, depending on when I finish integration of the cursor editing routine into the start menu GUI.


Kerm has also added a "Default Cursor" option, for those that want to reset the cursor. Check it out in action:
