Pull Request: Improved Cursors

Post by Christian Walther » Thu Apr 21, 2011 7:43 pm

https://bitbucket.org/cwalther/cwe, branchcursors has the following changes to the mouse cursors in Uru:
  • fixes the blurriness
  • adds a subtle shadow to fix cursors being invisible on light backgrounds
  • cleaner, more regular appearance
Image

As a side effect, it should also fix the blocky cursor when running in Wine, but I have not tested that.

Independent previous work in this area has been done by Deledrius, but as far as I can see does not address what I consider the two main issues.

Pulls and reviews are welcome.

My source cursors (.SVGs) look much better than the ones in that commit fixing both the irregularities and the blurriness (which was my goal as well), but unfortunately as you found the default alpha support is considerably lacking. I'm currently working on a patch to add in libpng support, which should allow us to use either cursor set (or a mix, whatever pleases) with full alpha fidelity.

Nice idea with the shadow on the circle; that looks great!

A little over two years later, mission accomplished! The cursors have landed in MOULa.

(Sorry, couldn’t help. :P)
