KPointers (the 'K' is for Kewl) consists of a short script and 4 icons.
The reason I made this is because all the pointers on Aminet, to date,
are really ugly.  So I decided to draw some really good ones, I copied
these sprites from my 8-bit Nintendo emulator, after realising how good
some of the 3 colour NES sprites looked.  All these sprites are pixel
perfect and the colours are all correct, except on Megaman and DK.

-  Megaman was drawn with 5 colours on the NES, I had to cut this down
   to 3 colours so I removed the white from around the eyes and made
   part of Megamans suit transparent, which looks especially cool if
   you have a Copper running in the background I strongly recommend
   COPPER-DEMON.lha by Valenta Ferenc (check it out).

-  Donkey Kong is supposed to have black eyes instead of brown.

So just double click on the 'PointerPreview' icon and take a look at
the pointers.  -now ain't that a nice touch-

If you don't know how to load and save a pointer image as your
default then check the Workbench manual. 

P.S. it goes without saying that this is FREE!
