MWC3 (Marshall WaitCursor 3) is an application that replaces the default Windows Mobile WaitCursor. It is not a way to skin the existing one (shellres.96.dll), but it is a standalone application that offers a new concept of wait cursors.

[ NEWS ]

10th Dec 2011: Fixed broken links; files re-uploaded in the post attachment
27th Mar 2009: Cursor Pack LARGE released
24th Mar 2009: MWC3.0 released




[ Download ]


[ NOTES ]

- Uninstall older versions of MWC before installing this
- Install in Device Memory to ensure a better working
- It seems that MWC3 is working on WM6.5 (Thanks to mchapman007 for reporting it http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=3574997&postcount=87)

New features in MWC3.0

  • New "Finger Friendly" Graphical interface for the configuration tool.
  • Added the compatibility with smartphones and any other non-touchscreen device
  • Added support for the hardware softkeys for the configuration tool
  • The configuration tool now supports EVERY screen resolution
  • Added the Autostart option
  • Added the cursor timeout
  • Added a new option "StartDelay" as a global parameter. When the cursor has to be shown, it will wait this delay first. Use it if you see the cursor even for "easy and quick" operations.
  • Changed the extension for all the cursors to .mwc3 since those files have now a different structure
  • Added a counter to show the current cursor number over the total cursors number (for example 7/12)
  • Changed the code to launch MWC3: this should eliminate the "Error locating process" message
  • Fixed an occational bug where the application freezed at the splash screen
  • Fixed a mistake that caused MWC3 not to unload properly
  • Added an icon for the MWC3 folder in the Start Menu

Main features


  • Transparent WaitCursor
  • Change the cursor on the fly (no need to reboot)
  • Create your own wait cursor
  • Define your favourite cursor parameters
- Interval between frames
- Delay before starting the animation
- Position on the screen
- Possibility to loop to a non-first frame (like in gif animations)
- Start the animation from where it stopped or always from the beginning
- Possibility to refer to an already loaded frame without reloading the image
Code:
Example:
frame=1.png
frame=2.png
frame=*frame1
frame=*frame2
frame=*frame2
frame=*frame2
frame=*frame1
- Specify the duration for each frame

Great job thanks for all your hard work!!!

You know what would be really awesome, if somebody could make the new wait cursor from WM 6.5, that would be sweet! :cool:

Usually the default value works... Try setting it to 10 seconds.

I'm trying to reproduce it but I can't find the aplha mask for the original bitmaps.

Successfully installed on my BA. Did a SR but now I can't see no wait cursor anymore? I tried to open the windows folder since it loads longer so I can see the cursor but there is none, no cursor appears? Anyone? BTW I am using WM6.5 Build 21189 for my BA.

MW3 cursors are not working yet on WM 6.5, Marshall already knows it as i reported during beta testing. We have to wait until he finds a way to make them work.
