Starting out as a special request, this is a collection of color coordinated "flat" 3D Maroon Animated Cursors for Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP with a common sports theme for those whose school or team colors are maroon. They replace all the standard Windows mouse pointers with animated versions, with many optional versions to choose from. They will also replace all the standard browser cursors if you have Windows 98 and IE4.01. The link cursor will also appear whenever you use the "single click" setting for "folder options" in newer versions of Windows. They are all 16 color cursors and will work with all 256K or above video setups. Since maroon is too dark to use the common 3D cursor shape, it uses a thick flat cursor to get the 3D effect. This set will work best with lighter colored backgrounds. The lighting perspective of these cursors is different than in my 3D Red Animated Cursor set, so many of them can be used as a contrasting variation with those in that set. The sports cursors can also be used with my other sets.
For those of you using Windows 2000/XP, the cursors will automatically be available for the user who makes the installation. For other users, unless they also run the install program, they will have access to the individual cursors but not the prebuilt cursor schemes.
I also have collections of 3D Green, 3D Red, 3D Yellow, 3D Orange, 3D Blue, 3D Purple, Flat Blue 3D, Neon, High Visibility, Inverse, Christmas, and New Year Animated Cursor Schemes available! For their home pages click these icons.

for installing 3D Maroon Animated Cursors in Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP
Instructions are included in the zip file under "Readme.txt." The installation instructions are repeated here for information. The installation file is designed to work with all normal default Windows installations. If you have a non-standard installation you can copy the cursors to your cursor folder after unzipping them and install them from Control Panel individually. If you are not familiar with the terms used in these directions, get help from someone who is to do this installation. 3D Maroon Animated Cursors do not have technical support.
1. Unzip the 3DMCursr.zip file into a temproary folder using an unzip utility such as WinZip. It is preferable to keep the default folder of "\Temp\3DMaroon", otherwise type in the folder used when prompted during installation for the "downloaded files". In Windows Explorer, go to the temporary folder you just made and right click on "INSTAL3M.INF". Select (double click) "Install". You should see a message that the cursor files are being copied to your computer. (If you get an error message about no program being associated with this file, you have a problem with your Windows 95/98 installation which can be repaired by following the directions at this link to Microsoft.)
2. In Control Panel, double click on "Mouse" for Mouse Properties. Click on "Pointers" in Mouse Properties.
3. Under "Scheme", click on the arrow for the drop down menu and double click on the "3D Maroon Animated Cursors" entry. You should now see the 3D Maroon Animated Cursors for each default mouse pointer.
4. To keep the set shown, just click on "Apply" and go to Step 5. To change any of the cursors, select that cursor and click on "Browse," double click on the "3DMAROON" folder, then select the new cursor desired from those listed. Highlight the desired cursor and click "Open". You should now see the new cursor shown for that pointer. Continue this until you have all the cursors the way you want. At this time you may want to save this as a custom scheme. Type in a scheme name and click on "Save As". To initiate the new cursors, click on "Apply."
5. Exit Mouse Properties and Control Panel. Delete your temporary folder. You're done!
Note: The "application in background" cursors have "apps" in their name and the "busy" cursors have "bus" in their name. All "apps" cursors can also be used as the normal cursor. Cursors ending in "L" or "M" are larger cursors designed for laptop computers. The cursors with "link" are able to be used as the browser cursor for Internet Explorer 4.01 if you have Windows 98.

These cursors are intended for those familiar with their computer's operating system and are not provided with technical support. (If I provided support I would have to start charging for my cursors instead of keeping them as freeware.) Technical questions are best answered by your local computer expert, the computer supplier or the operating system software company. For example, many Windows questions are answered in the knowledge database at MICROSOFT.
A good resource for trouble-shooting cursor problems is Dierk's List of Animated Cursors - Troubleshooting.
This cursor set is my original work and takes advantage of a number of ideas, techniques, and cursors developed in the process of designing twelve previous cursor schemes. (Links to them were provided above.) Many basic cursors can be designed with freeware cursor editors and these cursors started with "Paint", "Image Edit", and "Aniedit." In response to a frequently asked question on where to get cursor editors, I am providing the following link to Dierk's ANIMATED CURSOR UTILITIES PAGE which provides download links to cursor editors.
