How can I change the cursor color in Nova?

I think a search would answer this quick enough, but maybe somebody will feel sorry for you and give you the details. Like me ;).

I believe it's stored as an rle*, in which case you can convert it to an easily photoshopable format with one of the nova tools.

Actually, I think I saw it in the cicn resource. Check all the Graphics files.

There is a plug-in that changes the color of the cursor, check the EVN add-ons page. I think it was made by AAC, but I dunno.

Go to nova graphics 3-----> PICT------> pict ID 8080 ----> the mask is 8081

Copy this file and paste into photoshop. Then zoom in and change the color.
Make a new mask (photoshop------>image---->adjust----->treshold---->set threshold to 1)

Copy both the new cursor as well as the new mask and paste them into your plug and give the the right ID (e.g 8080,8081).

So there you have it ! 🙂

Hope this helps ! 🙂

Green Cursor was made by me.

Talk about the long way... I just copied the PICT into Photoshop and adjusted the hue/saturation (command-u). Much easier. 😛

I thought you did, but then I must have been thinking of paint station prime and shield bubbles. shrug

Oh yes, Entarus, you don't need to make a new mask if you're just changing the color. Like my LASIK tutorial, your only changing the ship itself, not it's sillhouette. (sp)

I don't have Photoshop. All I have is Appleworks.

If you want It I will do it for you. Just post in wich color you want it and I'll do it.

EDIT : I have to go so it might take a while until I can do it.

Too much time that is.

Thanx. But I just made one myself. But it wasn't perfect. So I will use yours.

I thought it was in the colr resource.

I thought it was an rle*. I was wrong too. However, wrong in a good way, because it means it's even easier to change.
