Hi @matriax,

I couldn't find a way to make the sprite rotate once it had been set using the "set cursor from sprite" action, but I did manage this workaround, if it's of any use:

Yep, i already have that, using the MouseXY position have some lag, is not 100% precise.

BTW, thanks for the help! ;)

My guess is that the cursor uses css to change the appearance.
something like:
.custom {
cursor: url(images/my-cursor.png), auto;
}
And doing a search, there doesn't seem to be a way to rotate a cursor image using css, unfortunately.

I found some way, is not desired but works.

Every tick > Set Sprite to cursor "MyImageCursor"

And in the cursor sprite add the animation frames of the rotation.

Will try to search to see if there is another way to hack it, maybe with some "execution javascript" ? mmm

That's probably the way to do it, even from JavaScript.
