    Can Lua make my mouse cursor bigger?

    Can the mouse cursor be skinned? Can you make it bigger? I play at 1920x1080 and the cursor gets small and I lose it sometimes.

    Currently we do not have any kind of cursor APIs available. It is something we've been looking into among the various other requests.

    Re: Can Lua make my mouse cursor bigger?

    I would dearly love to get this feature as an option: two years ago my 20x20 vision went away.

    Presbyopia sucketh mightily . . . but I can't stand using my glasses with the monitor.

    Yes I know - I really should use them.

    But really - with the exception of that tiny mouse cursor I can see everything just fine.

    Now where did that darn mouse go this time?

    The importance of clearly worded thread titles can't be overstated

    No...not you - I was referring to this thread, which I answered the same question.

    Essentially what Forsaken said is true (obviously) - we can't access the cursor itself. However, we can get the position of the mouse cursor, which means it is possible to put some form of "locator" graphic/animation (to make it easier to find) ,if for instance, the mouse hasn't moved within a certain time period.

    Re: Can Lua make my mouse cursor bigger?

    Not a Mouse Cursor enlarger, but a Mouse Finder...

    hold down Ctrl+Alt+Shift and a big icon shows next to your mouse.

    MouseFinder can be found in my suite of plugins, although it isn't much different than the Windows mouse finding tools. Either way, you can find MouseFinder here

    http://www.axiomfiles.com/Files/2692...yScripting.zip
    Just extract that to your Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/Plugins folder. Then, go in-game and type: /plugins load mousefinder
    Anytime you hold down CTRL+ALT+Shift, the mouse will be more visible. Since a true mouse enlarger isn't really do-able with my programming skills and the current API, I did the best I could with this mousefinder. Thanks for your feedback.

    PS: the following message has NOTHING to do with the mousefinder I referenced, above.... Note: another one of my plugins in the suite (linked above), PredictInGameTime, is out of date. Check http://my.lotro.com/user-511668/pred...-time-updater/ for the update info

    I think this is a Addon that can be useful. Even if it just point a direction where the Mouse is it would help the Fellowship Raids and Solo Play. Which will Bring in Better players.


    For ScrappyTheGreat if that coding can be set where a person can set there own key to find there mouse I think it would be helpful. One button I was thinking was ` key which is above the Tab key. Something that that can use in the middle of combat.

    i too would love for the mouse to be skinnable in some way...

    but in the meantime....windows mouse options work in game.

    there is a toggle to show the mouse location when you press and hold the ctrl key.

    I'll have to play around with it to see if it's possible. I originally made it for pep with bad eyesight or the inebriated to find their mouse when they lost it crafting. (/guilty as charged)

    Wouldn't CTRL+ALT+Shift be convenient for those in-combat? I mean, aren't your fingers there anyway? Regardless, don't expect any enhancements from me to my mousefinder any time soon, sry. I'm still busy helping kinnies get their UIs customized. Thx for the idea, though. I'll get started on it as soon as my current workload tapers off a bit, heh

    Re: Can Lua make my mouse cursor bigger?

    You might be shock. I do no not use the keyboard in combat and I play all 9 classes.

    I only use a Mouse total of 10 buttons That has the Main controls like the mouse 2 buttons and the Wheel. But 3 buttons on the side which I use for num Lock which is auto run. Webpage and (i) button to access all 5 bags at once. The Wheel has the Normal button but also right and Left which is my Tab and Delete which are Target or next Item. I still have 2 buttons Left. I wish I could get one for Next Player and mouse locator.

    So Not everyone uses the keyboard in combat. All my game Buttons are on screen.

    The only time I use the keyboard is to type.

    LOL same here as well. I use a Gaming Mouse for all my gaming needs, do use the keyboard but most of the combat stuff is via using the mouse.

    Re: Can Lua make my mouse cursor bigger?

    I do everything except voice chat by mouse. I would LOVE a larger cursor, and perhaps the ability to change it's colour. I can scarcely find my cursor anymore, when 3 years ago it was no problem.

    I haven't a clue how to use a keyboard in gaming, far too confusing. I know it can be done, but I do much better with the mouse.

    Re: Can Lua make my mouse cursor bigger?

    There is one other option.

    We can't override the cursor, but we can get the cursor position. Unfortunately Lua cannot keep up with the mouse -meaning that nothing tied to the mouse position will update quick enough to do anything more than follow behind if you move the mouse even at a normal speed.

    However, it should be possible to do something when the mouse pointer isn't moving, effectively making the pointer bigger while it's stationary, and resorting to normal size while it's moving.

    Thank you for this tip! Yes I would really like to be able to enlarge my mouse and change the color as well. Sometimes it gets "lost" especially in Snow? or Raid this is NOT a good thing. Bifocals for me: picking them up later today.

    Tried it today. Seems to no longer be working. At least nothing happened after I loaded it and used the CTRL+Shift+Alt.
