@FantasiaChan
Can I translate this app to Russian?
Timothy Johnson
@t1m0thyj
@FantasiaChan Thanks for your interest in doing translation, the app doesn't support multiple languages yet but I'll let you know once I add that functionality. (Also see #91)
Timothy Johnson
@t1m0thyj
@Charlesbq Could you locate the settings.conf file (see here for where to look for it), and delete it? This will reset your app settings, but I believe it might also fix the crash you were experiencing. Please let me know if this works
Charlesbq
@Charlesbq
thank u for your answer. I downloaded the lastest version,and then the error did not appear any more,the version 3.0 works well.

Hey, amazing app, I have one suggestion for future versions: The ability to have themes rotate every couple of days. There a couple of themes I love and would like to rotate between them. Keep up the great work.

Hi, I couldn't find any answer... does anybody know what is the maximum amount of images? Is it limitated to 16? What happens if I add more? Depends the timing on the amount of pictures? Thank you
Timothy Johnson
@t1m0thyj
@maiklindner There is no maximum amount, you can add as many as you want and yes the timing does depend on the amount of pictures. See here for more details on how to create custom themes: https://github.com/t1m0thyj/WinDynamicDesktop/wiki/Creating-custom-themes
@MickeyGT Thanks for the suggestion, I'm not planning to implement that right now because its significantly different from the main purpose of the app. Windows has built-in the feature to rotate between images every 24 hours, just not based on sunrise/sunset (but not sure if that would work the way you want).
Maik Lindner
@maiklindner
@t1m0thyj Thank you for your answer.

Hi, Thanks for developing this great application! I follow the instructions of README, in order to change the lockscreen image, however, it didn't work properly. In the setting page of the lockscreen preview, it seems to work, but actually it didn't. It just use a picture on my disk as the lockscreen image, how can I fix it? Thanks a lot.

Can someone make a video tutorial on how to create custom themes? I don't get the JSON part

Hey, I don't find the button to synchronize windows theme as mentionned in the readme file. The "more options" only show "select language"

Hi, amazing app, will be HEIC file format supported ? https://github.com/mczachurski/wallpapper

Can you please update the link of the "Sample theme files can be found HERE to see how they should be formatted." ??

The Catalina theme that's included in the program by default appears to only have 2 images, a day and night image unlike the Mojave one which has 16 images. Catalina appears to have at least 8 variants of the default wallpaper per this webpage: Every Default macOS Wallpaper – in Glorious 5K Resolution – 512 Pixels
I tried to slap together a .ddw or .json myself but it appears to have issues importing the images and implementing the theme, though that is possibly an error on my part as I have zero experience with json.
Timothy Johnson
@t1m0thyj
@tactidact There is a version with 8 wallpapers available here:
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

@tactidact
@t1m0thyj thanks so much, that worked perfectly!
Timothy Johnson
@t1m0thyj
@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
