๐Ÿ‘‹ Hello, I'm the new guy here in the Gamedev game and I'd like to introduce myself:

On Mastodon I am @kubikpixel but this profile is about my new side project, a ยป3D Exploration Puzzle Gameยซ and it is currently in the very early stages of conception - you can see it on my profile artwork ๐Ÿ˜…

how to #hide #mouse #cursor in #fluxbox (and possibly other #X11 #xorg #WindowManager)

```
$ cat blank.xbm
#define blank_width 1
#define blank_height 1
#define blank_x_hot 0
#define blank_y_hot 0
static unsigned char blank_bits[] = {
0x00};
$ xsetroot -cursor blank.xbm blank.xbm
```

useful for media art installation. my previous hack was warping the mouse cursor to bottom right corner of the screen and hoping the single pixel visible was either transparent or matching the background; and that was obviously not robust to mouse movements afterwards...

Hey indie devsโ€ฆ do you take inspiration from any other media for your game?

Oh look a free library for sources for artists, I discovered only now. This makes life easier of course and the IGS lamps can be baked in so you can use them in as well or you build them there manually ๐Ÿ”ฆ ๐ŸŽจ
