Auto Changing banner

Fri Mar 14, 2014 8:03 am

I've made it so the banner automatically changes itself depending on date.



It's been a thing I've been thinking about doing for a long time and I finally got to it.
The banner checks what time and date it is, and then displays the proper banner if there is one made for that date.
Keep in mind (you'll see this in the video) that it take some time to register what date it is but it's working fairly good

Heh, 4th of July. I like this, must have been a lot of work. What other special occasions have you added and/or plan on adding?
Also, I figured you'd have your pc in english.

There's a few banners right now:
Normal
Snowing
Easter
4th of july

I'm thinking about making a few more like:
Fall
New years
St.patrick's day
And anything else I can come up with.

This isn't really a request thing, I don't know when I'll make the other ones and/or how many I'll make but we'll see.
Also my PC is in Swedish.

Will St. Patrick's day be clovers or beer mugs? I could see either one working.

Sweet! I and perhaps Exodis shared similar ideas like this, glad to see it's taking root.

What was your idea about?

You said no requests, but maybe some folks could help you make some more for other occasions? Would be a smaller workload for you that way.

Thanks but it's alright, It's not like there's a rush anyway

I had this idea on the other threads about changing the banner to suit the current seasons we're on. In fact, there was a snowflake banner even after Christmas was over but considering that it was there during the Winter Season it still felt appropriate regardless. I thought that you could have also done falling leaves for Fall, and I wasn't sure about Spring or Summer at the time, but for Spring, I think falling Cherry Blossom leaves would do the trick.

I see a lot of Cherry Blossoms in my area and that would be a nice touch since they're typically associated with Spring, not to mention that Japan itself is something pretty much almost all of us can relate to in terms of its media, especially anime and video gmes. It's simplistic, cultural and for Spring especially, it's very clean! And my mom yesterday decided on doing some Spring Cleaning too. Since this idea has been expanded upon for other holidays like 4th of July, I think you could do something about these ideas, and use them to mark the beginning of a Solstice instead (snowflakes for Winter Solstice, Cherry Blossoms for Spring Solstice, and so on.)

Hey Thomas? Maybe not so many eggs in the banner? You know, so we can at least see the characters in the banner. I dunno, this may just be me.
