Sparkly drop targets

Post by richmond62 » Thu Aug 21, 2014 11:13 am

Inspired by a suggestion by Brahmanathaswami:

http://andregarzia.on-rev.com/richmond/ ... vecode.zip

The code is in the group "GreenDOG".

Enjoy!

Richmond.

I've just posted an updated version: the 'dog' on the left uses the animated GIF I downloaded from the internet,

the 'dog' on the right uses an animated GIF I have just made myself.

Oh:

I cheated by making a set of differently sized PNGs and then going here:

Lovely job!

But the crayons do not follow the mouse, they jump from one location to the next.

Same here. They don't move until the animation stops.

If your processor is fast enough they do move.

That is the main problem with this.

Hi Richmond,
I'm using LC 6.6.2 on Windows 8, HP Z230 Workstation, i7 4th gen, 16Gb ram....
This is a fast computer:-)
What LC version are you using and on what platform?

Paul

I'm using 6.6.2 on a DELL Optiplex 745 running UbuntiStudio 14.04.1: it has 2 processors running at 1.8 GHz (it is about 6 or 7 years old - bought it for about $100 3 years ago: never looked back!).

By-ther-way those people who have access to a Windows OS environment and/or WINE might like to know
about this:

In the crayons stack, move the "wait 1 tick" line down one line, just before the "add 1 to KOUNTER" line (out of the innermost repeat loop) and the crayon will move with the mouse movements, although at a bit of expense to the sparkly stuff.
