Amiga mouse pointers for Windows

I made a Kickstart 2+ mouse pointer for higher resolution Windows screens, and thought others may like it.

http://www.cursor.cc/?action=icon&file_id=50411

Of course, if anyone has any others, please feel free to link to them here too. For me, the version 2 onwards mouse pointer is the most nostalgic, but I know for many it would be the original 1.x pointer.

I've attached the set of 3.x cursors I use on my dev machine, as well as a 1:1 set for lower rez screens (like my win95 box)

Amiga Cursors.zip

I recreated all these myself and made some fitting replacements for windows default ones. Recommend using without shadow, but they look okay with shadows too.

Here's some busy pointers I did to augment the pointer package I downloaded from one of these links floating around.

I recall about ten years ago the Triabunna branch of Service.Tas had a WB 2/3 pointer installed on its Windows terminals.

That is so cool, I'd like to purchase the person who did that a beverage of their preference!

I have a funny feeling that these may have been installed by a guy I used to know named Dan (sorry I don't know his last name) who was in charge of the local online access centre at the time. I know he used to be an Amiga enthusiast as I bought some gear from him many years ago.

Ahh, cool. I wonder if there are any other active Amiga users up in the North West corner of Tasmania?

Probably, but I wouldn't know. The town of Triabunna is on the south east coast.

Yeah, I know my friend, I looked it up, I was just wondering aloud, as so far you're the only other person in Tasmania who I know of who is active here.
