Nifty3.2 is a pointer preset for Amiga OS 3.x computers. It was
developed from scratch starting on 3.1.4 with just the main pointer
and the busy pointer. However, with the introduction of the vastly
expanded pointer system in OS3.2 (thank you team!) I have continued
working on adding all the extended pointer graphics to my personal
daily pointer.

Why is it called "Nifty?" Well, because I think it is nifty.

The palette inspiration comes from the orange used in the 1.x series
Workbench. I intended to make something between the highly angular
OS2+ default pointer (which I have never cared forsince I was a child)
and the blocky and very stiff 1.x pointer. I also didn't want to just
rip-off another OS pointer and instead wanted something that was
"pure" for my Amiga.

I hope people enjoy it and it inspires others to make some other
pointers for customizing Workbench. (If there is ever an OS 3.3/3.4
being able to animate the pointers or use more than 3 colors +
transparent would be greatly appreciated while in Workbench.)

DISCLAIMER(s) / License:

I don't think this pointer set will harm your. With that said I
take no responsibility for any harm, emotional or otherwise, that
may come from loading this preset. Use at your own risk.

All the graphics contained in this pointer preset were made by me
for my use and my purposes using the built in pointer editing tools
of Amiga OS 3.x. I am sharing them with the community under Creative
Commons CC-BY-SA 4.0 license. (See CreativeCommons.org for details.)

You can reach me at joshua.dolan at gmail.com if you have any questions.
If it is possible to patch it into the 3.2 ROM with REMUS let me know! :)

INSTALLATION:

Extract the archive and move Nifty3.2.pre to SYS:Prefs/Presets.
Start Pointer prefs and open the Nifty3.2 file from the "open" menu.
