There will be a new release of WDD shortly that makes it easier to install, in the meantime you'll need to rename the DDW file before importing it so the name doesn't conflict with the 2 image Catalina theme

@t1m0thyj thanks so much, that worked perfectly!

@Bourbon0212 The lockscreen image setting was added as an experiment, but unfortunately doesn't really work currently (see #101).
Timothy Johnson
@t1m0thyj
@lucellent Sorry there isn't a video currently, but there's documentation here about what to put in the JSON file and sample theme JSONs can be found here.
@AeliusSaionji Feel free to submit the theme, if you have a good name for it and can link to the source of the images.
Timothy Johnson
@t1m0thyj
@EncestralZ_twitter That option had to be removed from the Microsoft Store version unfortunately, it isn't supported there because Store apps are no longer allowed to modify the registry. You can still synchronize the Windows theme in the GitHub version.
Aelius
@AeliusSaionji
I actually commissioned the original author to make a set of images for the theme! I'll ask her if she's ok with me submitting it to the github / wiki.
Timothy Johnson
@t1m0thyj
@PLA2019 Sorry for the delay in replying, are you still experiencing this issue? If so could you please create a GitHub issue for it
@CarnageMarkus No plans to support it currently, while its possible to extract the individual images out of an HEIC file, there isn't a reliable way to parse the metadata that specifies the time of day when each image should be shown. Posted more details in #151.
@BoboMerenda Thanks for pointing that out, I've updated the link.

Hello @t1m0thyj , I wanted to continue the translations of WDD in French using the new process with Zanata, unfortunately I can not edit the project... All versions seem to be affected and all languages too. Could you then correct this problem by making the translations editable please ?
Timothy Johnson
@t1m0thyj
Sorry, I'm still new to Zanata and figuring out how it works, but I should have been aware of this.
@Tissitron Could you please tell me your Zanata username so I can add you to the project, until I get permissions better sorted out
Nicolas TISSIER
@Tissitron
Don't worry, it's ok my friend 😉 My Zanata username is "tissitron"
Timothy Johnson
@t1m0thyj
@Tissitron You should have permissions to edit French translations now. If you want access to any other languages, I believe another way to get access is to join the team for your language (e.g., https://translate.zanata.org/language/view/fr)
Btw the Zanata site seems to be super slow recently :frowning: When I first tried it out around a month ago, I don't remember it being slow like this at all
Nicolas TISSIER
@Tissitron
Indeed, since I signed up on Zeneta the site has become very slow ... That said I translated everything into French but I had a question for you @t1m0thyj
In several translations, you mention the "&" character. How am I supposed to interpret it in the translations knowing that it never appears in the menus of WDD?
Timothy Johnson
@t1m0thyj
You can move the & in front of whichever character seems most appropriate when you translate, as long as multiple items in the same menu don't have the same access key so they won't conflict
Nicolas TISSIER
@Tissitron
Thank you so much for these informations I did not know about. Since then I have applied a more intuitive access key in each case. I also paid attention that there is no possible conflict with it.
PLA2019
@PLA2019
It's ok. Here I still have a request, can I add a one-click function to the theme of the heic file? Because the theme of making a heic file is too complicated, even if it is a paid function, I am willing to pay. thank you!
Timothy Johnson
@t1m0thyj
@PLA2019 It's not possible to make importing HEIC files a one-click function, the images can be extracted from it but a human still needs to create the theme JSON that specifies which image to show for each time of the day.

Hello. Is there a reference for the WinDynamicDesktop settings.conf file? I've looked around, but can't seem to find it. For example, I'm curious about parameters such as "changeSystemTheme" and "changeAppTheme". Their purpose is obvious from the names, but how do they actually function when set to true? My guess is a true setting will toggle these themes between light and dark based on time of day.
Nicolas TISSIER
@Tissitron
Hi @t1m0thyj , for several weeks the translation project of WDD in French (FR) has disappeared from PoEditor. I can not see it anywhere, either in projects already existing or not. Can you fix this problem? Thank you.
PLA2019
@PLA2019
I already have a set of images. How do I package them into a .DDW file?
Tyler
@snowtyler
@t1m0thyj Hello, I'm not sure if you're aware of this but the latest version is throwing an error when you try to change the wallpaper compression and startup delay options. I've attached a log for you.
Timothy Johnson
@t1m0thyj
@mikeglenn Currently there isn't a reference for the settings.conf file. Your guesses about the parameters are correct. All the parameters should be customizable in the system tray menu so editing the file manually shouldn't be necessary. An exception is the hideTrayIcon setting which is documented.
@Tissitron Sorry for not seeing this sooner, looks like the translations got added back
@PLA2019 To create a .DDW file, bundle your wallpaper images and theme.json into a .ZIP file, then rename the extension to .DDW. I plan to improve the documentation for creating themes soon.
@snowtyler Thanks for the report, in your case it appears to be failing because of insufficient permissions to modify the relevant registry keys (not sure why because admin privileges aren't needed). I'll try to make the app handle this better in the next version

In the Dynamic wallpaper for lockscreen script has an issue , when run for first time it creates a "LockScreen_A " folder (in "System Data " folder where the wallpapers are rendered) but assigns the Ownership to system which prevents the script to overwrite the files

@AdrienSoma_twitter
Hi, I've a double screen config, and I'd like to span the wallpaper on my two screens, and keep the dynamic wallpaper. How can I do this?
denisbogdan13
@denisbogdan13
Hi, where do I report a problem with app? Do you have problems with keyboard not working on lockscreen. I have to click with mouse and then I can type in the pin.
Timothy Johnson
@t1m0thyj
@AdrienSoma_twitter You can select the wallpaper fit setting you want in Windows 10 settings, and WDD should remember the fit setting when it changes your wallpaper. If you're using the Microsoft Store app, there is a known issue related to this, which requires that you reset app data for WDD after changing your wallpaper fit. See https://github.com/t1m0thyj/WinDynamicDesktop/wiki/Known-issues#wallpaper-fit-not-saved-with-multiple-monitors
@denisbogdan13 You can report problems with the app on GitHub: https://github.com/t1m0thyj/WinDynamicDesktop/issues
Although the app only changes wallpaper images, it shouldn't affect the behavior of the keyboard on lockscreen at all

I am using MS Store Version 4.2.0 (UWP). Theme in use is Mojave Desert with 16 images. I am not sure how to set timing using "specific sunrise and sunset times" so that all 16 images are shown during the time I am using my pc. If I use Sunrise 8:00am and Sunset 10:00pm, how do I set minutes to use all 16 images during that time frame? Appreciate any help. Thanks! John
Timothy Johnson
@t1m0thyj
@oklajohn The app doesn't support specifying minutes for each individual image. The timing of the images is based around sunrise and sunset, so if you specify 8:00am and 10:00pm then those times will be used instead of the sunrise and sunset times for your location.

Hi! @t1m0thyj i tried to create my own theme and did the json and all but when i try to upload it it tells me that no images were found in my zip file. Why does that happens and how can i fix it? Thanks! :)

Hello! I have a question about naming the images - does it matter if some of the images numbers are missing? I know it might be a unclear so here is an example:
Surface_Pro_7_2.png
Surface_Pro_7_4.png
Surface_Pro_7_5.png
Surface_Pro_7_12.png
Like I said - some numbers (3, 6, 7 etc.) are missing. Does this matter or it's good as long as the missing numbers aren't used in config for the theme?
exilis
@exilis_gitlab
Alright, the above said numbering was giving me an error. Ordering properly works though.

I just completed the Korean translation. Please check.
yahavshalem
@yahavshalem
just a question, is the timing of the change in wallpapers for the big sur theme the same as macOS, or just guess at your part?
Timothy Johnson
@t1m0thyj
@exilis_gitlab It shouldn't matter if some of the images are missing as long as those numbers aren't used in config. Could you please file an issue if you still see the error?
@bonzzi_gitlab Awesome, thanks for translating WDD! Your translation will be included in the next release
Timothy Johnson
@t1m0thyj
@yahavshalem Not exactly the same as macOS, as I haven't reverse engineered their process, but should be pretty close to their timing. WDD uses a 4-segment system to split up a 24 hour day. The 4 segments are Sunrise, Day, Sunset, and Night. Sunrise and Sunset are defined as being +/- 6 degrees from the horizon, and Day and Night are in between those segments. A different sequence of images is shown during each segment.

Can you also convert Windows existing wallpapers to dark?
