yer, like that explains a lot... it doesn't say what they are there for, nor what they do. and it doesn't tell you what the numbers mean. Why only 0, 54321 and 12345? what difference does it make in each situation??
0,0 sets the hotspot to the top left corner of the cursor.
12345,12345 sets the hotspot to the centre of the cursor.
I don't know what happens with other combinations as I haven't tested them yet though.

RE: WHAT the hell is going on?
if ren is right, and those values, then i presume HotSpotX is left to right, and HotSpotY is top to bottom, where 0 is Left/Top, 12345 is middle, and 54321 is Right/Bottom... but whats with the strange numbers? 12345 and 54321 really looks like a forwards backwards animation sequence if you ask me. 50 and 100 would have made more sence.

RE: WHAT the hell is going on?
Yes, I did some tests on this and hotspots control where the mouse cursor is on the shp mouse animation.

If you want it to be in center add 12345,12345.

I don't know what do they mean, but most people will use center (default) anyway.

I don't know what happens with other combinations as I haven't tested them yet though.
HotSpotX:
"0" - Left
"12345" - Center
"54321" - Right
HotSpotY:
"0" - Top
"12345" - Center
"54321" - Bottom

And why no one go and help me to update it?

I compared it with RP 1.08.

Quote:Also Mouse Cursor animations fixed. Does that actually mean they animate on there own? Instead of showing one frame unless how down left click? If so that is progress...

Is this yet another thing that Launch Base / RP-Gen needs to think about?

This is something RP has added? It is the first mix file to be loaded?
What are the implications for Launch Base?

Then why is CnCVK mentioning it in relation to the RP installer?

yes. I write: "YR load MAIN.MIX at start up."
not "RP load ..." Smile

no relation to the RP installer.
We talk about ROCKPATCH.MIX.

Everyone just boycott the patch and let your anti RP under VK leadership be heard.
