    Homestuck Mouse Cursors

    i made the homestuck mouse cursors and their pretty bad A55!!
    hopefully i can post zip files on here for all to down load. You'll have to place them manually in your mouse properties. I do plan to upgrade these later, but only if i get enough people who wants this.

    (actual size)
    Once you download the cursors from the link above. follow the steps below.

    1. place them in your documents, desktop, ect, somewhere easy to get to.
    2. go to your Control Panels in your start menu or right mouse click on you desktop and go to personalize (i'm using windows 2007)
    3. open your Mouse, Mouse and Pointers file.
    4. your Mouse Properties will open.
    5. go to the Pointers Tab at the top of the window, it should take to to a scroll window with all the pictures of mouse icons.
    6. select the mouse icon, and click on browse at the bottom.
    7. open the file with my mouse icons on it and set those as your cursors.
    8. note do not have the corners or the finger cursor. i do plan to add them if i get enough people who want them.
    9. Once their all set, go to the top and click on save as and save it as whatever you want.
    10. once you set them up click apply and ok.

    *note* when you restart your computer, you mouse will go back to its default settings. just open up the mouse properties and click the ok button at the bottom and they will go back to your homestuck cursors.

    It looks like the mouse pointers are backwards. On a regular pointer, the arrow points left. It sounds silly, but it would really throw me off if I tried using those.

    It is really disorientating, but it looks like it still clicks in the right spot, so it only feels disorientating until you start clicking things.

    Awesome mouse btw, awesome mouse.

    and also add a mirrored version, for people who are to old to deal with left-handed pointers.

    I downloaded the file, but it was a .rar file. I converted it to a .zip file, but it still wouldn't work...
