You've reached a page on the Ren'Py wiki. Due to massive spam, the wiki hasn't been updated in over 5 years, and much of the information here is very out of date. We've kept it because some of it is of historic interest, but all the information relevant to modern versions of Ren'Py has been moved elsewhere.

Adding a custom mouse pointer

Ren'py supports the adding of custom pointer images to the game. To do this, first create your pointer image. Then, add this code to the Options script:

config.mouse = { 'default' : [ ('mouse.png', 0, 0)] }

"mouse.png" should link to your pointer image, while (0, 0) are the X and Y offset of the pointer (usually not necessary if it is flush with the top left edge).

Now your game should have a unique pointer rather than using the default system pointer.
