Bethesda for vanilla Oblivion cursor.
Thanks to the other modders for some of the excellent mods which I made some themed cursors from:
- (liquidgraph) Lost Spires, (Various) The Oubliette, (themythofanst) Vvardenfell Imports, (Exelixis) Mastersword Resource, (Jojjo) Frostmourne Sword, (Tarnsman) Beer!, (Nicoroshi) Wyrmfang dagger, (Trollf) Junkyard



===Metallicow Cursor Mod Compression Standard===
The 100% Standard cursor is 64x64 pixels wide and resides in the folder: textures\menus\misc\cursor.dds.
The 80% one is the same as the Standard cursor and resides in the folder: textures\menus80\misc\cursor.dds.
The 50% one is 32x32 pixels wide and resides in the folder: textures\menus50\misc\cursor.dds.


DDS Convertor 2 Says (100% Vanilla cursor):
The Alpha Channel: Yes
Compression -
Mipmap #: 6


All cursors were saved at 8.8.8.8 ARGB 32bpp | unsigned 7MIP maps with the Nvidia photoshop .dds plugin.
The Vanilla Cursor has been included if you wish to revert back to the original cursor.
