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?

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?

Hello all. I am enthusiastic user of this program on my Windows 7 PC. I have made several of my own themes and enjoy using them. I have a question, which is the reason I signed up to join. Is there a limit on the number of images that can be used for each segment of time during the day? Noticed that the ones being offered contained only 16 images. I have used more than 16 in the themes I created. Since I'm not sitting at my computer every hour of the day, am wondering if the program will only use 4 of the images in each segment of time. For example:
Oops! Did not mean to post that last message. Hit enter in error.l Sorry.
The details of the json file for one of my themes: {"imageFilename":"Bridges_Of_TheWorld*.jpg","imageCredits":"Created by the .ddw Theme Creator","sunriseImageList":[1,2,3,4],"dayImageList":[5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13],"sunsetImageList":[14,15,16,17,18,19],"nightImageList":[20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29]}
Timothy Johnson
@t1m0thyj
@leodoi3 You can upload the Windows 10 wallpapers and create darker versions if you select "Create theme from single image" on this site: https://ddw-theme-creator.vercel.app
@OregonLady78_gitlab Your example should work fine, there are no limits on number of images. You also don't need to have an equal number in each list.
Lorene Romero
@OregonLady78_gitlab
@t1m0thyj Thank you so much for the response. I have been creating Windows 7 themes for my personal use for years. Have now created a number of themes using the .ddw theme creator program. It is working well on my Windows 7 64-bit PC and am having fun making new creations. FYI, learned of this program from the Digital Blasphemy.com site. A link was posted there to get the program and they also have a link to use for creating themes. Thanks again for developing and sharing this program.

Hello, I noticed that WWD needs about 130mb ram in idle mode. I wonder now if this is intended, since it seems to me to be a lot (for the fact that nothing is being done at the moment).

@t1m0thyj WinDynamicDesktop crashes a lot on my Windows 10 Pro, 20H2 which is new installed. It says see log files . This is what I found in logs :
[2020-12-21 06:30:30.861] System.IndexOutOfRangeException: Index was outside the bounds of the array.
at WinDynamicDesktop.WallpaperChangeScheduler.GetImageData(SolarData data, ThemeConfig theme, DateTime current)
at WinDynamicDesktop.WallpaperChangeScheduler.RunScheduler(Boolean forceImageUpdate)
at WinDynamicDesktop.AppContext..ctor(String[] args)
at WinDynamicDesktop.Program.Main(String[] args)
Any wayto fix that?

App was working correctly yesterday but today not
Timothy Johnson
@t1m0thyj
@AndiLeni When idle WDD frequently uses less than 10 MB of RAM on my machine. If you recently had the Select Theme dialog open the number may be much higher because the image preview uses a lot of memory, but it should gradually free up after closing the dialog.
@AbilBakhtiyarli It may be related to current solar times for your location, could you provide an example of a location that makes WDD crash?
AbilBakhtiyarli
@AbilBakhtiyarli
Any location in Azerbaijan
I was using Microsoft Store version and I started this can be a problem too
So
I downloaded this app from a website but same error still shows up.
It worked for me only 5 hours or so.
Then it crashed

Hello, on 12/17/2020 at 7:56 pm, Windows Defender has detected a virus like "Trojan: MSIL / Masslogger.VN! MTB". This seems to affect the file "file: \Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy18\Program Files\WindowsApps\38719TimothyJohnson.WinDynamicDesktop_4.4.0.0_neutral__rfarkse4rn21a\WinDynamicDesktop\WinDynamicDesktop.exe". Can you tell me what's going on?
Timothy Johnson
@t1m0thyj
@Tissitron Thanks for bringing to my attention, see the update here

@Klokki
There seems to be an issue with the polar night/polar day code. WDD thinks that the sun never sets where I live (decently below the arctic circle, the sun sets around 3 PM and rises at 10 AM), if I try to set the location manually, the text box says "Sun always up" and the background never switches to night. And even if I was within the arctic circle and the sun was up/down for the whole day, it should be polar night instead of day at this time of the year.
Timothy Johnson
@t1m0thyj
@Klokki Thanks for reporting this, I've reproduced the issue by setting my location in the app to Finland and am investigating it.
@AbilBakhtiyarli I've reproduced your issue with the app crashing after several hours when my location is set to Azerbaijan and am investigating it as well.
Timothy Johnson
@t1m0thyj
@AbilBakhtiyarli @Klokki Could you please try this build of WDD and let me know if it fixes your issue? Hopefully it's fixed now for both Azerbaijan and Finland: https://ci.appveyor.com/project/t1m0thyj/windynamicdesktop/builds/37066592/artifacts
Sami
@Klokki
It does correctly report sunrise/sunset times and is at least showing the night image instead of sunset, I'll let you know if there are further issues if they appear on my end, happy new year!
Sami
@Klokki
Had some spare time so I translated the app to finnish. Didn't find any issues with the build you linked.
Timothy Johnson
@t1m0thyj
@Klokki Thanks, I'll include the translation in next release of WDD which will hopefully be soon
