I've just been trying to do the same thing myself and I think you are correct that it can't be done via ANIMDEFS.

I used the following purely as a test.

Code: Select all

texture DOOMCURS 
pic DOOMCURS tics 8
pic CHEXCURS tics 8
I hoped that it would alternate between the Doom cursor and the Chex one (just to show that it was working, obviously that wasn't what I wanted long term), but it doesn't.

For what it's worth, the cursors also don't seem to respect the HIRES folder either. Again as an experiment, I put a 128x128 image called DOOMCURS.PNG into a HIRES folder and all that happened was that the Doom cursor changed to the default cursor in game, and did not become a scaled-down version of the 128x128 image as most graphics would do.

I have no idea if any of the above observations happen by design, but I suspect so.

I am sure people will know, but people aren't on the forums 24/7 (or even daily). People have outside jobs, perhaps outside families, that may or may not also dedicate a portion of their time.

Inside that portion of their time, they also do things outside of Doom, like reading, going to the movies, reserving a restaurant, hiking or speedskating. So there is another portion within a portion of time reserved.

Within that portion of a portion of a portion of the time available, there is time for Doom. And that is, as you can tell by now, a small portion of someone's time.
