The July (Intel) and August (UB) 2007 builds were, as I understand it, deliberately programmed to replace custom cursors with an arrow cursor whose tip would thus always be at the hot spot. My information about this may come from the WordPerfect Mac list on Yahoo rather than from Emaculation, I don...

... the earlier workaround, of replacing all app-specific or task-specific cursors with a generic arrow cursor, has the merit of at least allowing precise placement. I do agree that for most purposes a generic arrow cursor is preferable to a "correct" cursor with the wrong hot-spot. I'm n...

It seems like you only fixed the misaligned cursor problem for the text cursor, though. Drawing tools in HyperCard are still misaligned. There are probably a few hundred, if not thousand, different cursors in all classic Mac apps, so the proper fix is to align the cursor to its "hot spot"...

...the changing cursor works fine in BasiliskII, but does not work in SheepShaver. The default cursor disappears, leaving a kind of speckled shadow, but the cursor image that should appear does not. I have never seen that in any build of SheepShaver, but possibly it depends on what application and ...

For me, the most annoying problem left is the the cursor not displaying applications' cursor images. If my understanding is correct, cursor changes will be seen only if made via the video driver's "set hardware cursor" function. I do see this happening when (e.g.) I run MacMoney, which us...

Thanks Cat_7; I will post bug reports at sourceforge and see what happens. I don't want to encourage people to download and run SheepShaver builds created by random unknown people on the Internet (i.e., me), but those who like to live dangerously and want to beta-test my changes can download my curr...

You can move the cursor, but not to often. I forgot the number of times one has to move the cursor in and out of the window to make SheepShaver freeze. Somewhere around thirty? I have a fix for that problem, which results from an interaction between SheepShaver and SDL. The fix is in code from Basi...
