I tend to lose sight of the crosshair on some maps with larger monitor. Could I substitute the MS mouse cursor? I don't recall a mod for JTCS.

Also, thanks for the update

Yes, that cursor is a real pain. The subject has come up before and got a lot of agreement. But since it's in code it is not amenable to a quick fix.

There are two problems with cursor modding.
1) They need to work at any zoom level and more noticeable cursors can easily cover too much at min zoom.
2) The cursors reside inside me.exe, which isn't very mod friendly.

The upside though is I find my modded cursors to work ok even at min zoom (despite me being a complete novice at pixel art), and inserting them using Reshack is actually super simple.

While the workaround is appreciated I'd suggest to hold to your horses (reindeer?) a bit if unsure about tweaking game executables.

There seems to be a lot of smoke coming out of Santa's workshop chimney... Not sure what that means but Mrs Claus seems to be there too...
