    Hi All:

    I have found a pointer that I want to use in my Windows7 environment, it is the airplane pointer used in Secret Weapons Over Normandy. Can anyone tell me how I go about this? It appears the cursor in the game folder is a .bin file without a picture while cursor files are .cur and have a picture in the file listing.

    Thanks

    Right-Click on your Desktop and choose Personalize.

    On the left side click on Change mouse pointers.

    Under the Pointers tab, click on Browse... and locate the .cur file you want then click Open.

    Make sure Normal Select under Customize has the new cursor and click OK.

    That's the problem tho, the game cursor file is not a .cur file, it is a .bin file.

    You could try extracting the .bin file using a program like MagicISO and see if it contains the .cur file.

    Is the cursor in the game animated? If so, you would have to look for .ani instead of .cur.

    If it's not, then unfortunately I don't believe there is any other way to obtain the cursor file from the game.
