Could somebody link me to the files where the cursor images are contained?

If I have access to them, I can remake it using CursorFX by Stardock.

Well, I found res\images\cursor_circle.png, but I imagine it's actually dynamically generated to create the velocity trail (and also it's different colours in different chapters).

It is. It has a black circle and a shadow. (In different folders incidentally). From there it's done similar to the sleeping z. Shrinking and "trailing".

It's possible to do something similar in windows, but the effect won't be exact, or necessarily look all that good.

Yeah, I could make the cursor on windows, then I'll tell ya how.

Well, i think you could just take the cursor image from the WorldofGoo file, make it a cursor, (i dont really know all that stuff)and then go to (on XP) Start, Control Panel,Printers and other hard ware, mouse, then go to Pointers, select the cursor, then go to the pointer options tab, and check the  "Display Pointer Trails box". I think that'd sorta look like the one from the game.
