Not in OOT. In Dos Turing...possibly.

the mouse is a part of window's API. Rule of thumb is - you can't access anything outside of turing but text files Confused

what about creating batch files with Turing? I think you could do that. If you could create batch files, and know the right commands, then can't you potentially exchange the mouse icon?

ok, then, can you place the mouse with some other icons? (inside of the run window?)

AsianSensation has a good point - you could use Sys.Exec to execute external programs writen in other languages (such as C++ or batch files)(batch files could be created by turing) to access window's API
