Rainstik 2K and XP by dekaritae Rainstik 2K and XP by dekaritae
Redesigned to reflect how I wanted the original Rainstik set to look, but wasn't able to achieve at the time. I generated these by hand on paper, then scanning, and tracing over to create the components of each frame in vector at 128x128 resolution in Paint Shop Pro 7.

Thanks to Prophet for suggesting I try ArtCursors for generating the final cursor files. Included versions for Windows XP and CursorXP. The "Rainstik" set included is just the original Rainstik circa July 2001, "Rainstik 2K" is for non-XP users.

If you are interested in converting this set to X11, leave a message for me.

This theme converts to X11 pretty easily with gursormaker, which supports automatically importing CursorXP themes (I don't think it's compatible with the new CursorFX). I could try just clicking the button and re-compressing the X11 mouse theme it'd create, if you'd like :). It's a very nice theme; I find it particularly cute because the pen totally matches with my tablet pen :).

Yus, that was someone else's work, and I no longer have a copy. I'll be porting most of my public and private sets when I get my Eee.

You had a X11 version for download as well - this was years ago, but that link is long gone

Cool set! These cursors remind me of blue crayons.

pretty nice, but to inexperianced users just the initial navigating around in the zip may be a little too much. I'd say split it up into multiple zips within the zip and clearly mark each one. Moving on to the cursors, nice but very... un-user friendly. If i had somehow managed to find my way through the zip and actually use the cursor set, i think it would be pretty demeaning for most people, being used to the good ol' arrow, to be using poop? Pen? Crayon?

Although i was kind of rough, that doesnt mean i like these cursors. very nice job, smooth animation and a nice streamline shape to the cursors with a 3-D feel.
Kudos to you, but try a little harder next time, mm-kay? :D

Cool cursors

I'm actually very happy with the way Nataku turned out. There isn't much I would change with it, aside from making 32-bit versions of each cursor. I might just do that tomorrow, actually.

Yay, you're back!
good set, as always.
This new design is much bettet than the older version, imho. Its not just the anti-aliasing, the win2k version is also better.
Now, if only you made an UberNataku....
