Amazing snow! I LOVE it!!

This is so realistic snowy and windy day simulation I ever seen. My desktop, it uses my Crystalized desktop, ApptLinearCalendear, and your object.

This is very cool!!!!

What settings are you people mostly using, I have a amd64 and radeon video board, been playing with the settings and can't find anything that works really good. had it upto 850 flake count one time, but cpu was max.

Love your snowflake object. I have been trying for a couple weeks to figure out how to change the objects from snow to something else and all I can find to change is the snowmake to another object (made him a spider) but I wanted to change the snowflakes to something else also. Can you tell me how to get to that? I couldn't find in the script where the folder/temp folder is that the flakes are kept in to change them. Thanks!!

The files are probably kept in the %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Stardock\DesktopX\CurrentTheme folder (go to start/run then put that in). You can also just download the dxpack, open it up in a zip program, and replace the images.

will be using this this year what ever the desktop ends up with this will add to it.

RE snowman to big or not wanting it on screen simple way (and in my case thats best)
is to just pick it up with mouse and slid it off side of screen

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow... This still rocks, even three years later. Great work, GreenReaper!

I cannot change any of the settings for the snowflake control in Desktopx 3.x. When I try to run it in build mode, I get the error: There has been a script error in object "GR_Snow_Speed_Combo" Variable is undefined: 'Control'
Line: 8
(not available)
I get the same error message for each of the combo boxes on the control. Do you have any idea what I can do to fix this, I have enough knowledge of vbScript to change whatever might need changed. Thanks in advance, I would like to keep this wonderful program for every year.

Same with me... Some fixes suggested:

If you have XP- downloaded the Windows Script latest version
Update video drivers

I have Vista Ultimate, with WB, and IconX running. I don't know what is wrong, but let me know if those fix your problem!
Comment #35 Wednesday, December 19, 2007 11:28 AM
If you are on Vista and are an Object Desktop user, make sure you have the latest beta downloaded from Stardock Central.

Might also be worth trying to run:
regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Stardock\Object Desktop\DesktopX\SDCtrls.dll"
from an admin command prompt

Unfortunately with the new compositor it may not work as well on Windows Vista as it has in the past on XP. Under ideal conditions most computers should manage 500 flakes or so - 50 is a sign that there is something slowing it down, most likely in the graphics pipeline.

It was hard to find the wallpaper, because the link given in the description does not work anymore. So if anyone is interested, the wall can be downloaded here: WWW Link
Comment #37 Wednesday, December 19, 2007 4:02 PM

I see, I have Vista Ultimate 64bit, will the beta work for that.
Comment #38 Wednesday, December 19, 2007 4:14 PM
Should work as well as it does on 32-bit. However, as noted above, Vista's display engine (or your video drivers) may not permit it to run at a high level of performance. For what it's worth, my widescreen laptop has 400 in Vista, in DesktopX's hide icon mode.

when i'm using this program, and press the buttoms F9, F10, the snowman hide, and unhide, can i change theese hotkeys to something else? any tip?!
Comment #40 Thursday, March 06, 2008 4:21 PM
Try this: Open regedit, and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Stardock\DesktopX Add a DWORD value called HotKey (to replace F9) and set it to one of the virtual key constants (you must set it as Hexadecimal). Add another one called HotKey2 to replace F10.
