Whats with the pregenerated shadows? I kept getting annoyed with the fatness of it so I made my own set, then made some animations.
Also, how did you antialias the edges of the icons? I had to manually blur the edges to get rid of the jaggies, but it looks like you anti-aliased it. How? BTW, I am using PhotoShop to do the initial fixup.
These icons are awesome! My laptop is all Starcrafted out.
I have a suggestion with the arrows and the text highlight cursor. The arrows should be moved to the left, and the text highlight cursor should be moved up. I found with the text cursor that it would appear about halfway through the text vertically and the bottom half would stick out below the text. If you look at the default cursors, you'll see that Microsoft has their text icon bumped upwards. The same thing goes with the arrows for dragging windows.
and also, just a small thing don't know if its possible to work around, but the link cursor is a little bit off from the tip of the hand, so when you try to hit a small X to close a window and things like that, it won't work until your mouse is slightly to the right (for me) of the X
There are 19 cursors (one for every windows cursor and some alternatives). Help, Link (plus two alternatives), Unavailable, Working (plus two alternatives), and Busy are animated (see a below for sample). All cursors come in large (generally 32 pixels), medium (generally 24 pixels), and small (generally 16 pixels) varieties.
EDIT: added Link V2 and V3, but its not in the pack yet. I'll finish this later.
EDIT2: Done! There are now three versions of Link and Working.
- Link V2
- Link V3
- Working V2
- Working V3
hmm... i really like the red ones ^w^ but hey... you dont think you chould make a bright tip red one? o.o cause that's probably the only one i'm missing now xD but otherwise i love the cursors ^w^ nice job! xD
Nice set, only one issue I found. With the teal resize set, it's very off when trying to resize a window. Also, could you make a blue hand link cursor?
EDIT: Also, your blue text cursor is kinda off to. Typically, the point is in the center, but this looks like it's at the top, which make selecting text difficult.
Thats what i was talking about. the only cursor that is right on seems to be the normal and busy, the other ones are slightly off including text being oriented towards the top and the link cursor seems to be centered a bit to the left
You've done great job. It's so good to have such cursor not only in game, but could you do something with them to make them similar to original cursors with their physics now its hard to use some of them like this when u write a text like this. I must click it in a different way to do exactly what i want to do. Cursors which are used to manipulate how window is small or big are not good made too because center of arrow should be in edge of window not out of edge.
Thank you for this cursor and i hope you can make them better and do all new amazing styles of them.
