Excellent piece of programming and artisty rolled into one dx pack. I've had negligle impact on CPU useage too.

Thank you both! I did try to have it avoid getting in the way as much as possible - I use my computer to work, and I assume others do too; it's just not a good idea for it to be soaking up CPU time in the background if that time is needed by anything. Leaves a bad impression of DesktopX.

love this, great work.

Is there anyway I, (as a non programmer) can reduce the size of the snowman or even make him invisible.

This is awesome!
Comment #11 Friday, December 17, 2004 7:39 PM
Great work! i realy like it, good for the summers to

mark: If you want him invisible, just right-click the snowman and click Properties, then go to the Relation tab and select Visible: No . . . and DesktopX crashes. OK. Right-click and disable the script first, then go into properties and set the visibility. You should find some script popups occur, just select Enable on all of them. Then it should work. If it doesn't, try right-clicking DesktopX, selecting List Objects, then right-click the GR_Snow_Controller and enable the script. You would also have to edit it there to make it visible if you want to change the options (or delete and re-import, or start a new theme, or edit the DXLocal file manually in your theme directory). You could alternatively change the opacity in States tab/Transparency/Uniform opacity.

Frogboy, bbnn: Thanks! And bbnn, you could use it in autumn if you wanted, just change the flakes to leaves.

Whoops, I seem to have broken WC's comment system as well - can't edit that post either. I'm having a good bug-finding night tonight!

Edit: Fixed by Jafo. Yay for Jafo!

I ended up reducing Snowman.png to icon size, it works great. Changing the tranperancy had me hunting the desktop for the object. Thanks for a great addition to my desktop

Excellent! Runs so smooth and the feeling of snow is just right!
Comment #17 Monday, December 20, 2004 1:09 PM
GreenReaper! it's always so much fun to see other programmers that just do stuff for a challange and fun! I am also the type of person that likes fancy algorithmic stuff and really enjoyed your snowflakes article as well as the flakes themselves.

Hope to see more stuff from you soon... How about some leaf simulation or grass field with grass blades bending in the wind?

Tombala: Hehe, well I'm looking at a few ideas - although I have a few other things I have to do first, like deal with this "christmas" thing . . . *grins*

Firstly, this is awesome.

Secondly, if you think the snowman is just a bit too big or obtrusive, try changing the graphic to one of the bigger snowflakes that is part of the Snowflake object that comes with DX. I choose Snowflake(7).png. You really need an icon to make it easier to delete or configure, and a slightly different snowflake works well.
