Animated Inventory Item cursors?
« on: 08 Jan 2014, 14:25 »
This is more just a simple question than any problem I've been having, although if it is as it seems, it really should be noted as such somewhere.

I know you can have animated cursors, and I know you can have inventory item cursors, and I know you can set a specific sprite for the inventory item hotspot marker, but is there a way to have animated inventory item cursors directly through AGS? Like you have an animation of the item glowing when it is over a hotspot, or perhaps have the crosshairs hotspot marker sprite animated.

I know one could easily code animated inventory item cursors in the script itself (and I know how to do that), but that is not what I am asking.

No. As I understand it selecting an inventory item just replaces the mouse cursor graphic "until the item is deselected". As you say, one can script a workaround, but out of the box AGS can't do animated item cursors.
