Hi David.

I was checking your animated pointers (ecs_animated_cursors.zip, ecs_os2_ani_blinkinglights_ptrs.zip, ecs_os2_ani_flag_ptrs.zip, eCS_OS2_Ani_Mouse_Ptrs.zip, more_ecs_ani_mouse_ptrs.zip) on hobbes.

1) I was wondering how do you assign the icon (the ones that shows on the desktop) to the ani file. Some ani files shows the icon file, and some others not. Do you assign manually, and the EA is included on the zip file?

2) Will it make sense to combine those five packages (do you have any more?) in a single file in hobbes, and upload it to "/pub/multimedia/pointer/animated". I can help with that.

Hi Martin

It has been a while.  Some are done the OS/2 way and some are done the Win95 way if I remember correctly.  Presently, I don't have it installed.  The latest supposedly corrected version of animated mouse pointer was dated 2010.  I tried it with ArcoOS and it would hang my system every now and then.  Also, it did not support the Win95 animated pointers which the original did. The fixed version has disappeared (2010).  Now that I have 3 ArcaOS partitions up and running, I will have to try the original version again. 

It has been so long that I really don't remember.  The os/2 versions, you need to select the folder.  The Win95, if I remember correctly, and I could wrong, should be shown in the pointer selections.  I will need to install the original when I have time.

The only other animated pointers are the new ones I posted under this list.  As for the ones on Hobbes, I never uploaded one big package with all the pointers.  If you want to put them into one package, that is fine with me.

Hi David,

I'm reorganizing the pointers this way by consolidating the four zip files, it is still draft but this is the idea.

Not an *.ICO file request, but a doodle in text. KMP, K Movie Player: the Korean flag, as a 3-D film frame of a 3-D Movies folder'ishr-icon, with and without the folder. IIRC the Korean flag also was a little bit too detailed to make that work, even if you did restrict yourself to a smallest size of 40x40.

It was. A quick & dirty (2-D) redo confirms it'll look like JMP or like a Japanese ribbon. Too... many... details. :-\

I decided to split the 4 bit icons up:  Games and Programs.  A few more icons have been added.

Made a few more OS/2 icons and updated the package.

PRIX3M80.PNG (renamed to Chiffres80.PNG) and GALGJE.PNG (renamed to Galgje80.PNG) are now distributed as the "official" 80x80 icons of the matching games Des chiffres and Galgje. Des chiffres had a different own 40x40 icon, but there the availability of a 80x80 version and a more generic 80x80 style was leading.

My PNG icon doodles in one package.  Not all icons are pictured.
FWIW/ The PNG package contains 3 *.ICO files (QUESTER.ICO, QUESTER_80.ICO and a DOSBox-related TEST.ICO).

That is what happens when one has doodles scattered over several partitions and thumb drives.  :)

I thought I had upload these OS/2 icons I had done over the years, but checking I had not. I included some pics of some of the folders, but not all the folders.  These are primarily done in 8 and 24 bit icons.  Again, there may be a few duplicate icons.

FWIW: here just about 37 duplicates, and missing dots in the file names "DOCUMENTS2ICO" and "INFO7ICO".

Grand Prix Circuit (GPEGA.EXE)

"Solved". There was an unexpected but recognizable 32x32 OS/2 icon file in its directory, which is slightly better than a default DOS session icon.
