mouse icon pointer problem cd32 toolkit

Hi,

I ve noticed a problem with games requiring mouse input on the cd32 toolkit (Bull Run, Lore of Conquest, Moria as I creating a public domain cd compliation) When these games boot up from the cd the mouse pointer icon is not visible - pressing the right mouse button shows the drop down menus which means the mouse is recongised however the mouse pointer is not displayed.

Do I need to add something to the start up script?

Maybe custom pointers must be on floppy disk in DF0:?

Probably the System-Configuration on the ToolKit - So the screen is Black and doesnt show the Amiga Shell

On the 200 compilation Gary used SetPrefs to load different non Black System-Configuration when needed.

Could also add JoyMouse to control mouse cursor with Joystick.

The mouse pointer is there in the debugging mode

However it is not there in testing mode and on the real cd

I ve never used setprefs before - how would I use this - would i copy the contents to the bull run game folder and what would I need to add to the bull run start script which is currently

CD0:Games/BULLRUN
bullrun

Its the same for Larn - with the mouse pointer being their in debugging mode but not in testing mode.

Ok forget that, theres probably a number of ways of doing this
but try the System-Configuration in the Zone
So Replace CD0:Devs/System-Configuration with the one in the Zone
The Screen is still Black/Blank but the Mouse cursor is left Red/Default WB 1.x

Using the new system configuration means that I no longer see the text "do you want to finalise the compilation" I had a black screen - I pressed "n" and the menu then appeared - I don't know if I would see the different text prompts if I keep this system configuration which would appear when I go to create and burn the disk

Rename and replace _System-Configuration so this System-Configuration is used in the finalised compilation or something like that.

Apologies - I didn;t change the name to _system-configuration - it was showing as just system-configuration and therefore was not being picked up - The games works fine now in test and I am now just going to check on the cd32 -

Thanks again for your help.
