Smooth mouse cursors


is it possible to set a smooth mouse cursor using the [java]InputManager.setMouseCursor[/java] method?

I’ve created a mouse cursor (.cur file) which has smooth alpha blended pixels like a semi-transparent drop shadow. But when I load it into a JME application all pixels with an alpha value less than 1.0 are discarded! This would also be useful is want to display cursors with smooth anti-aliased edges that do not look like it’s '95… :wink:

Window sis unable to use semi transparent cursors,
you can only use software cursors.

Eg invisible mouse cursor and move a quad with a texture according to the invisbles mouse positions.

Ok, so it’s an operating system issue.

I’ll go with a software cursor then. Thanks for the advice.
