Ok, I want to split these out of this thread to its own:
I already installed the new version 4.3 and yes Effects & Trails are there now but my big problem now is the animated cursors that are extremely very heavy to use at the end i uninstalled CursorFx 4 because i purchased many animated cursors and i should use them and Re installed the OLD v2.16 again until you find a solution to fix CFX 4
I installed this latest version and using animated cursors but, disappointed in it. I think this has made my computer slower and I sometimes have to mouse click 2 or even 3 times for the click action takes effect. I'll use it for some more time, but not happy with it at the moment.
I have the exact same issue with custom animated curors (Not built in cursors) it very slow responding when using my animated cursors.But i FIXED that by going to "Settings>Shadow" and checked the Disable checkbox that fixed all problems.So what i want to know why should i disable this Option in order to get my cursors working properly? And are you going to address this issue and fix it?
I have done so here:
Please post there if you are seeing performance issues with effects applied.
@venkum, I need you to report there if - like Hnagy - disabling shadows (then apply) works to resolve your issue.
