    Of course you'll need an image. I'm using this one:

    Place it in the System folder as MenuCursor.png.

    Plugin

    Download it from my google drive.

    - The cursor isn't available on the title screen '_'

    The engine refuses to load the image in that particular scene.

    I love you!!!! You kick ass! Yayyy! *runs off screaming happily like a maniac then runs back and stops panting heavily* Seriously though, thankyou!

    Been begging since day one lol >_<

    As a suggestion, maybe different cursors for different things... BUT.. i just read the part about the title screen being a goober... it would probably require a separate plugin specifically to make it work on the title.

    But given time, i get the feeling someone will come up with a fancy title screen plugin for customizing it anyhow..

    I'm seriously just happy having what you made here though.

    I freaking HATE the cursor setup that KDKW (or EB.. or who ever now) keeps insisting on pushing on everyone.. it's just ugly and tacky and boring.

    Again, thankyou!

    Oh.. a way to offset the cursor as well depending on what menu.

    I noticed it sits WAY off to the side in the item command window and equipment and shop command windows.

    Found an issue, notice how the hand sits? It's being overlapped by other windows depending on what windows, now if this is on my end, i will figure out what i did.

    Only fix i can think of is... well other than fixing the X and Y, but it still might overlapping like that... but i can move the windows around and swap the sides, put command menu on the right and gold on right and menu status on left.

    Thanks !!

    Okay. Added to the to-do list. But it'll be tricky to configure since it's not likely to be doable through the plugin's parameters.

    Yes, I hope too.

    I'll fix it. I have an idea of why this is happening.

    Oh, sweet!

    Awesome, i can't wait to try it.

    I found a small bug.

    When you go to the options window, the pointer does not show up in the right spot, it shows up off in the left corner of the screen at first, then when you press down, it snaps over to the options window like it's supposed to be.

    After further use, i find it doing it in other menus as well. Like the item command window and the equip command window.

    I'm going to investigate further and see if it's something on my end.

    Im having an issue. I have a finger/pointer for a cursor. When in battle too many are appearing.

    if I go into a submenu I can see the finger beneath it from the prior menu, also a finger for what battle characters turn it currently is (dont want that either)

    . I only want one finger on the screen at a time.... and I dont want the cursor to appear for the character turn menu... see attached pic.

    Also I DO want a finger to appear on the enemy I am selecting to use an ability on

    Could you help me out??? :)

    ya it seems like after you select an entry from the menu it leaves the previous highlight over it. You have to use window deactivate hide "true". That way the previous cursor disappears when you are selecting a new menu tab.

    Guys, are you using the updated version ?

    2 minutes after my previous post I found this bug and I ninja fixed it ^^

    Try to download the plugin again.

    No. It's not the purpose of that plugin ^^

    I thought you said you ninja fixed it?

    It's still doing the bug where if you go to the option menu or the equip command or shop command or item command windows, the cursor is sitting off way off on the left side of the screen.

    It's still doing it on my end.

    If it's not doing it for you, then it might be something i've done.

    Bug:

    Whenever I go into the item and options scene, the cursor appears in the top left hand corner. However, once I tell it to move the cursor, it fixes, but it still shows up in the top left hand corner when you enter those scenes.

    In battle, the cursor appears correct, however there are "ghost" cursors appearing, they aren't animated but they are there.

    Can you send me the cursor's file you're using ? Mine isn't that large so it's not optimal to

    test in your case.

    I'll fix them.

    Thank you! Showing up correctly in the menu, however, still some buggy in the battle scenes. One appears over the actors, if you go to skills, there more ghost cursors. Just a heads up.

    *Edit

    also, it does appear at game start up either
