Sam: Thanks for your prompt response.
Rather than use the X4 cursor for animation ... I redid it using a
library called SDLSprite. This involved some manipulation using
gimp and other things in order to tune the images given by the
graphic designer. It wasn't hard to use, but if something better
exists I'd appreciate any feedback.
I would have rather used the method suggested by Sam, could
somebody point me to a "minimal working example" if one exists?
Or the file I should start hacking within the SDL source. I'm
very new to SDL, but not OpenGL. Any help is greatly appreciated.
