Pink block with mouse pointer

[Post New]by prabs99 on Feb 6, 09 7:10 PM
I installed this game on my computer and I get a pink block along with the mouse pointer. I am running WinXP SP3. I am not sure what is wrong. It does not happen with anyother game. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

You know I was having the same problem. I like to play the game but its real aggravating when ya got that pink box in the way. Im not sure what the problem is either. Im using vista and still have the problem. I uninstalled it because I wasnt sure how to remedy it. so if anyone ever finds a solution id love to know too so i can play it again.

I have the same problem as well & I downloaded it from another site. It's really annoying.

I used RealDrawPRO5 to fix the problem. There is a folder called "assets" in the SpongeBob Diner Dash 2 folder in the Program Files. Using RealDrawPRO5's "File" tab open up the cursors (they are PNG files), click on them when they appear in the RealDraw window, click on the "Bitmap" tab, then click on "Adjust", then "Hue and Saturation". When this window appears click "OK" then save the corrected image.

Have the same problem. Annoying to try to play this game. More annoying that I paid for this game. Didn't happen in the trial version for some reason.

Same for me & then the cook never showed up. Guess this is an old enough game that nobody cares to fix the glitches in it.

I have had success with two different solutions.

1. Locate the game on your hard drive. You will find a folder called 'assets'. Within that folder is another called 'cursor'. Inside the 'cursor' folder is the .png files that control the cursors. Delete them. When you next play the game, it will simply use your standard Windows cursor. Easy and no more pink box.

If you like the animated cursor then ....

2. Locate the game and the folder called 'cursor' as above and once again delete the files. Now here's the tricky bit. I have a number of Diner Dash games. I found that Diner Dash 2 and Flo on the Go both have the same 'cursor' folder and those .png files will work. If you have one of these games, locate it on your hard drive and simply Copy and Paste the .png files to Spongebob 'cursor' folder and you will have animated cursors without that annoying pink box.

Don't panic if you have deleted the files and you want them back for some reason. You will find them in your Recycle Bin and from there they can be restored.

Pootsy, thank you! I also have Flo on the Go and copied the cursors over to the Spongebob and no more pink box. Really appreciate this very easy fix.
