Hi lukves,

I haven't tried to do anything like that, yet, but you're right that the animation of a pointer wouldn't be too difficult from the point of view of the OS.

However, it looks like the ANI/RIFF file formats would take a bit of getting used to; the RIFF file format specification looks (at first glance) fairly complicated. :animals-chicken:

You're certainly invited to add the ANI support to the kernel's loader hierarchy if you feel like tackling that! :handgestures-thumbup:

At the moment my own to-do list is pretty long, though.
