Xwd - The Off-topic Thread

Recommended Posts

I personally don't see any benefit to subscribing to your youtube channel. It won't direct anybody but me to your videos :P

That's what I'm Saying, It'll keep you updated XWDock, and all of my other videos :P ... Well at least it'll help me out too :)

Then, if it's possible, it would be great to set it on every 1 pixel JUST when "Use higher quality" is ON.

I mean if "Use higher quality" option is off, icons should magnify as they do in XWD 5.4.

This way all users would have the choice to get the SMOOTHEST magnification, or not (for those users who doesn't support it.)

I think I like my idea o_O I mean, this way, when you zoom fast and when you zoom slow, you get the same quality!

Every 4 frames, update. Every 4 pixels, also update. This way, fast scrolling will update every 4 pixels, and slow scrolling will update every 4 frames. I mean, it's not like you mouse moves 1 pixel at a time, right? ;)

I understand but...

1 pixel at time is still the HIGHEST QUALITY.:cool:

That's why I request it as an option...:P

Yeah, but it's highest quality that is wasted :P If you move your mouse at 4 pixels per frame, there's no point in rendering intermediate frames... similarly, if you move it at 1 pixel per 4 frames, there's no need to render 4 times.

You're right...

Anyway, let's let BOBAH13 decide what to do!

But I still want smoother animation when magnification activates for the first time...;)

Just wanna help to spreed it a bit..

So i fixed something .. in one of the biggest, german chat communitys

XWindows Dock - Page

It's not finished yet .. just some little 'esthetical surgerys' needed.

Enjoy

btw: I hope u guys don't mind that i use your graphics & style for the sub-header-section. ;)

& i badly need a screencast with the whole behavior of the dock ( menu, stacks, docklets & so on )

is there anyone willing to do it for me ?

(from the main thread)

@all: let's stop posting about the corrupted installer zip file and just wait till bobah updates it; I'm sure he'll notify us at this thread when he gets it fixed. Let's just be patient and wait.

Note that I'll delete any new message about this matter and also all these messages already posted when this problem gets fixed.

ha. I was wondering when you'd say that :P by the way, will there be new threads for everything 5.6?

Yep, you know the drill... I just hope you're saying this because you agree with it... ;)

I just sent bobah a PM about this matter; I intend to keep things organized in the same way we have it now so, yes, that's my intention!

I don't know where this goes, so it'll go here :)

Scrolling has become unsmooth again. I'm not sure what this "Optimize Magnification" does, but it sure as heck didn't optimize anything. Also, icons tend to lag during the very start of stack animation, and the very end when you close it. This happens for both fans and grids.

XWD doesn't seem to be taking full advantage of my processor. CPU usage never goes above 35, when it would go up to 60 before.

So it's not a bug... just some observations.

Edit: Ugh... it's most likely my computer... Gonna need to clean stuff up now.

It optimizes: when it's checked, magnification works only every 4th pixels, when unchecked it works every pixel. About stacks, soryy but how can I paint and stack animation and magnification at the same time ? it's imposible.

but when I turn off magnification, stacks are still failing :S I have a huge feeling this is just my computer though. Spending the day cleaning it out now :)

Edit: so yeah. After virus scan, detected a few trojans. Everything working peachy again :D

Edit2: however, with optimization off, there are still moments where icons aren't updating. I think this is because you round off a value somewhere in there. If possible, please only round off things (like x, y, width, height) in the last step of calculating :)

From Skins and Support Files for v5.6 - No comments here!

...I'm tired of putting up screenshots and listing out features. Just take it. The update of my "neon dock" for xwd 5.6.

Here's an old screenshot so you can see what it sort of looks like...

LOL Andrew, tired... with just one skin for updating??? LOL then shishimaru must be dead and buried by now (all without complaining...) Thanks a lot shishimaru!! :D

Lol. Shishimaru didn't have to fix his screenshots. My screenshots have to be re-taken, re-edited, and I have to change the xwd settings and everything... Since I'm not particularly fond of updating my skin anymore... I got lazy :P

Another topic to possibly discuss here: I recently did something that caused the icons to "unzoom" when you mouseover them... it was really trippy :P

siik, I have serious concerns about you trying to promote your YouTube Channel this way here; besides, I can't see how this would benefit bobah in any way... I think you should stop doing this from now on, or else I'll have to start deleting such posts as Spam. Please, don't make me do that!

I'll move this post to the off-topic thread for now.

This won't Help bobah13 in anyway!? are you serious?

So if they launch the website, Who is going to make their official video?

I guess you can ask bobah13 that question.

I'll just remove all the dock videos that is XWD related on my account.

thanks a lot! :)

have a good night

Hi Siik, i like your videos, they look very professional, with the transitions and everything. :)

Please don't get me wrong, if i give you some suggestions: more than the first half of the vid (1:30min) is static and boring. You should do this part (moving over icons & show settings) in ~15-20sec, imho.

Instead you should focus on the effects & features, and i miss a lot things here:

* Show Fan-Stack & Menu-Stack, too.

* Show Hover-Effect on Grid view.

* Show more Detail on the Gallery, and here show the Wallpaper-Switch feature (right click on a image).

* Show magnification

* Show "Reserve Space for Dock" - feature

* Show Minimize to Dock - Feature

* Show Resize with dragging Separator - feature

* Show Video & Image Preview (hold left click on a image / video in a stack)

* Maybe you could show some docklets, too, but i don't feel comfortable in requesting this, so you can skip this. ;)

You don't have to show all of this, but i would love it, to see at as many of these features as possible, because these features are, what makes XWindowsDock really special.

Unlike Panta, I really think your Videos can help promoting the Dock for Bobah, and i would be happy if you can do the official video!!!

But exactly like Panta, I don't understand your constant ask for channel subscribers. Can you explain, why this is important for you? Do you get something for it or something else? I myself don't have a youtube - account, so I won't subsribe anyway. But I think other people will be more willing to subsribe, if they know the reason... But unlike Panta, I don't care, if you ask for subscribers or not. If it makes you happy ;)
