Changing the cursors in game menus - 5 simple steps

Recommended Posts

1. Open up the following folder:

C:Program FilesEA GAMESBattlefield 2modsbf2menuExternalFlashMenuCursor

2. Rename the existing files (or back them up somewhere).

3. Create you animated cursor files using your prefered software (lots out there on the web for 30 day trials)

4. Make sure your new cursor size matches the original file cursor size (I.e. open up the original file to check the size).

5. Save the new cursor as the exact filename as the original cursor.

Your new cursors will appear in game :D

May I suggest ot add that the cursors used by BF2 (the ones in the flashmenu) are 32 bit cursors with an alpha channel? Lots of icon/cursor editing software does not allow you to work with those cursors. I found one that seems to have no trial limits and only asks 10 bucks to donate to support the tool, its SnIco Edit:

Seems to work pretty good.

Hey I found a new one, this one allows you to change the hotspot too, also freeware so that should be fine. It has one issue: it cant read the busy icon properly, the colorchannel is gone, it probably was saved in another format orso, all other cursors are dealth with fine, heres the link:
