Can I revert the old hardcoded red mouse pointer?

Hi. I recently downloaded a nightly and happy to see it all mostly works on my laptop these days (even sound works now).

Anyway, there used to be a semi transparent red traingle mouse pointer that was used by default. I don't see any option for it anymore. Is there a way I can get it back?

Thanks

Hi. That isn't the one. But that's ok. I have a new problem now. After I installed ata.device doesn't seem to work properly anymore on my drive. Lots of DMA errors and desktop won't load. Thanks anyway.

@ericb:
With regards to your sata related issues: are you aware of this?

Oh there is an alternate ata.device included? I will give it a try. Thanks

I'm not saying that it will solve your problems but you could at least give it a try if you can be bothered

Ok it looks like a no go. There isn't an Alt directory in Devs with an alternative ata.device module. I am using a 64 bit ABI1 nightly from 9/8.

edit: I should add this laptop only supports legacy IDE even though the drive is sata, so no AHCI support, and it ran fine off the hard drive with ata.device on a much older nightly from 2010.

If it's the one I think you are referring to, then you can get it by deleting or renaming the file "SYS:Prefs/Env-Archive/SYS/pointer.prefs" and then rebooting.

It is really ugly IMO.

I am using a 64 bit ABI1 nightly from 9/8.

The instructions i pointed to is for abiv0. (you forgot to mention that fact + using 64bit version).

I don't think there was a v1 64 bit aros 7 years ago... but ... it could be close.

Well I didn't forget to mention it, you asked if I read that page when I said I had DMA errors.

I didn't say I was using ABIv1 7 years ago, I just said ata.device used to work for me. ABIv0 doesn't work at all on my notebook anymore.
