The way I am doing this is by making the default cursor invisible and using .png files as replacements for the cursor.  Perhaps my code would best explain my problem.  I will take help in any way that I can.  Here are the links that contain my code:

It's all working now with one exception.  I just want to arrange the paddle to the right side.  I managed to do just that, but it won't move freely vertically.  I am not fully aware of the arguments of pygame.Rect().  Here is what I am using:


bounds_rect = pygame.Rect(880,200,0,500)


Again, it all works minus the vertcal movement.  The full code (keep in mind it works fine now) is http://pastebin.com/xAAda30e

I thank you all (esp. Ian) for this help.  I broke down and remade the code and behold it works (with this exception).  Oh, Ian, this isn't a class assignment; it's a personal project to help me in the process of learning python.
