Yo. If you guys like this cursor and enjoy the default normal variant, but don't want it to break other animations, here's the solution.


Step 1. Download a cursor ani editor. (I recommend Anituner)

Step 2. Load the '[TB] Normal Select v3.2.ani' into the editor.

Step 3. Click "Edit Cursor frames" and scroll down until you find the 60th frame which is set for length 250 - The culprit of all issues.

Step 4. Change it's length to 2 and duplicate it about 60 times to replicate the pause. It's a bit shorter than default, so you'll probably have to play around with it, but I find it perfect for myself.

Step 5. Save the cursor. Maybe change the name if you want to keep the default. Then replace normal cursor in control panel mouse settings.



Explanation: Why does it break? Simple. With 1809 release of Windows 10 Microsoft messed up how ani files are handled. This causes the 250 long pause to faultly carry over to other animations, which in results makes them appear frozen. What's worse, ani files don't play from start now, which makes the last visible frame of that cursor animation appear frozen.

As a result I recommend not using Alternate Select, Text select and Handwriting as they are set for length 9999! This could potentially make the cursor break until you reset it manually.

TL;DR - Any animations that are longer than 2 at the end will make other animations appear frozen. Microsofts fault.

Thank you for these insights :D


I have already tried this method during my fix attempts and sadly It doesn't fix the bug because the issue is within the OS itself. As you have said, Windows messed up how .ani files are animated. Simply put; each animation doesn't start from the beginning and is skipping giving the impression of glitching. I have already reported this to Microsoft a couple of times. You can help by reporting it too.

Odd. I edited the stuff on my end and it eliminated freezing for me. The animations still start from whenever they want but they don't freeze.

Nice cursor, thank you very much. I have an issue, the cursor is locked after a few minutes to use (it gets freeze), it freezes and restarts on periods of time, Do you know why that happen?

Hi, this is most likely caused by Windows 1809 bug, you can 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


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.

For some reason that one cursor's animations are kinda laggy unlike the Night Diamond one, even though I used a static version of it as the normal select, any idea on how to make it smooth again?

Thanks!

P.S. Im using windows 10
