this is AWESOME

It's... AWESOME! I really like the concept of such a "simple" cursor!

However, I've noticed few things that I wish would be fixed:


- "Normal" cursor animation sometimes glitches, and pauses at a random moment during playing the animation, which results in a dark-white cursor. The animation won't play then, and it will remain like that until the cursor will be rechanged.


- Sometimes the animations just don't play. For example, I really like the "Text Select" animation from the Windows preview, however it never plays whenever I am entering on a text field... It looks sooo cool! Sometimes the cursor just doesn't change at all...


That way, it's a strong 9/10. Every thing listed up here also applies to the light themed version.

In my opinion, it wins with the Numix cursor pack!


Good job! :)

Oh nevermind. All of the problems have disappeared after changing the "Normal Select" to a static version.


The animations now play always, and they don't glitch as before!

WHY IS THIS ANIMATED? IS SAID CRYSTAL CLEAR NOT "CRYSTAL CLEAR THEN CHANGES RIGHT AFTER YOU CLICK A LINK"

Hi, all of my cursors are completely animated. If you want a non-animated version, use the one available inside Bonus Cursors > Statics. Also included there is an image instruction on how to use the said bonus cursors.

Is there any way we can receive a notification when you release a new update, once you've found the problem, assuming you've been able to fix it? I've done your fix that's been found, but I want my fully animated cursor. :(

I'm really sorry for the inconvenience of the bug. Microsoft still hasn't released a fix for the bug as of now. I have tried tons of test already but still got no luck (lower size, lower resolution, different frame rates, etc.) The only significant finding is that an animated "Normal Select" triggers the glitch in some way.

**I have tested it with the Crystal Clear 4.1 Material White Version, but it should work with Black too**
Hello Everyone,
For the loading animations problem(feels broken), I think I have found a solution. Well, I would not call it a solution, just a tweak. First of all, this cursor is my go to cursor. In every pc & in every laptop I use this.
So, again thanks to the developer for such a nice cursor set and it's continuous updates.
Because of this animation problem, for a couple of days, I was using the 3.1 version, also the 4.0 version.
Then, I combined(some cursor from 3.1, some from 4.0 & 4.1) all those together in the windows cursor settings (settings>personalize>themes>mouse cursor).
By doing that, it has appeared that every time I select 4.1 version's animated "Normal Select" cursor, all the animations start flickering & feel broken.
How to fix it:
1. Install the 4.1 version
2. in windows cursor settings, select the "Normal Select" from the static folder.(So no animation on "Normal Select")
3. leave everything as it is

My cursor now working just fine.
I hope it will work with everyone.

I tried with other cursor-sets and works too :)
Thank you very much for this workaround Tusharfaroque  
Will share with other users. Thank again and have a nice day ahead! :D

Happy to help. Keep up the good work

Hi. Try this workaround:

1. Access Mouse Properties panel. 
Right click desktop > Personalize > Themes > Mouse Cursor

2. Change your "Normal Select" to a static version
Double click "Normal Select" > Browse the "Statics" folder inside the bonus folder > choose the "Normal Select" file
Note: If you're using a premium version, download the free version first to acquire a copy of the static "Normal Select"


3. Back to Mouse Properties panel, click "OK"

You'll have to deal with a non-animated normal select but it's an effective workaround.
