Disabling the visabilty of the desktop mouse in game

  • Hello there fellow nerds!

    In my current project (for funsies) I am creating a game which uses a sprite as a mouse cursor.

    Unfortunately the default cursor for the computer is still visible, see screenshot below: pasteboard.co/2a0wReJa.png

    I would like the cursor to show only the purple placeholder sprite and not the default (white)desktop icon.

    I'm not sure this is even possible but it's worth a shot.

    Any advice on this matter would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks in advance

  • If you want your mouse cursor style to be a sprite,

    try this:

    1) Mouse | Cursor is over poweroff | mouse | set cursor to hand

    2) System | else | Mouse | Set cursor from sprite "Your Sprite" Sprite

    3) Mouse | Cursor is over reset | mouse | set cursor to hand

    4) repeating step 3 for all other objects you need to select from.

  • The response is appropriate however I am past that point.

    I do have the mouse cursor position changing the location of the sprite and changes to the sprite if hovering over an event.

    I'm Referring to the default windows cursor which I wish to hide whilst in the game window

    Thanks anyway

    Set cursor style

    Set the type of mouse cursor showing for the canvas in the HTML page. The cursor can be hidden completely by choosing None.

    I feel so bad as I never managed to find the answer looking through the tutorials.

    I must work on my searching skills.

    Thanks Again!
