    Ah, so you're an internal MacBookPro redesigner too.. I've done your exact upgrade there to mine.. Except the paste thing. In the recording world we need to cut to a separate audio drive than our system drive. Cutting audio to the system drive "will" work, but is not recommended by ProTools. So I actually have an SSD 128GB drive as my second drive in place of the optical drive. It's killer fast for audio and generates no additional heat. I cut 32 tracks of live audio thru an MAudio ProFire LightBridge - all night. Never a hiccup. Powerful laptop..

    Me too. Great little utility. But one little disclaimer, remember your fan is in there to save your CPU from getting destroyed. So don't turn your fan down too low. I speak from experience...
    Hi Grant,

    I'm not working with anywhere near 32 tracks, maybe 5 or 6 max, I use Cubase 6 but my Mac has no issues here, it's when I record a video with ScreenFlow, when I export the completed video my May reaches 95C & throttles down - very hot! When I export video I have to put my Mac next to the AC unit to keep it cool. I know it's the thermal paste, Mac's are notorious for this.

    I don't use fan control to slow down my fan, quite the opposite, my fans go to full speed when my temp hits 70C, the noise doesn't bother me.

    I'm gonna look up those 2 audio programs you use, do they use VST plugins?

    I'm confused.. then why would you need the Fan utility at all - whose primary function is to change fan speed?

    No. ProTools uses RTAS - its own proprietary plugin code. But ProTools is the most widely used audio software in the pro world on Mac or PC. It's pricey though.. And no VST plugins.. Though one guy wrote a utility called VST Wrapper - which converts any VST plus into an RTAS one.. So you'd still be good to go in PT.

    The other name I mentioned isn't a software but a hardware piece. The ProFire LightBridge by MAudio is an audio interface. You can Google it easy enough..

    But if you want to reduce heat in a laptop - one big thing is to convert to SSD internal drives. And they make 'zero' noise. That's the best part. Late at night, MacBook fan on low.. I have THE beefiest MacBookPro you can make - and it's dead quiet.

    Hi Ian, something weird happened with the DemoTest Mod, not a big deal but just let you know, even at "false" the weather was set at "rain" and i change to "clear" the animation was stocked at "rain" was the first time that i see this issue, maybe LiveWallpaper going tired those days lmaoo
    The only thing I noticed with LiveWallpaper is that if you make an adjustments you need to double click on the theme file again to re-load in into LiveWallpaper.

    With fan control you can also control the max speed starting temperature, so maybe as standard on a Mac the fan won't hit full speed till over 85C (guessing) but I use fan control to change this, my fan will be at full speed when the temp hits 70C.

    Thanks for the other info. I also have an audio interface, but nothing too fancy, only 2 inputs but works for my needs.

    SSD: 128GB is not nearly big enough for me and at present time any bigger and they ask crazy prices, maybe in a year or so.

    My HDD's aren't noisy at all, can't hear them for my fans

    Didn't try it on the screen yet, only in Taco, but I see you made the body size the size of your Mac again, don't know what else you changed, give me a minute and I will change the css again and try it on my 17".

    Ok, I changed the body settings back to 100% and all seems to be fine on my Mac, I will say that the bg.jpg and the screenshot.jpg don't look too well, why did you remove the ones I gave you, the ones you are using - the logo text looks obviously stretched larger and the spotlight effect on the dark background is too blotchy for me, but I'm a fusspot.

    Romy,

    In this version you sent me yesterday, the "none" (for wallpaper) isn't working anymore, just gives a white screen, I don't have tome to look at it again but it was working in the last (R04) version I sent you, I just checker that version again (R04) and all is good. If you need to you can still re-download it.

    As for issues with Mavericks, I'm afraid I am not much use as I don't install it yet, I have it but am reluctant to install it till all the teething issues are solved.

    The screenshot.jpg doesn't need to be big, it's just an icon really, 400 X 400 is good, use this one (below).

    The BG.jpg is important as it's what people see when they close the theme, it should be at least 1920 X 1200 and in good quality.

    I also give the the UniAWl psd file (text logo, attached to this post in a zip), but don't stretch it too big!

    It's the z-index, try removing the z-index code altogether or make it -1, maybe need to add a z-index to fullscreenweatherwalls, it should be 1 higher than the background.
    Code:
    #background{
    	background: url('../../Images/background/background.png') center no-repeat;
    	position: absolute;
    	top:0px;
    	left: 0px;
    	width: 2560px;
    	height: 100%;
    	z-index: 160;
    	-webkit-animation: global_fadein 5s linear 1 normal;
    	-webkit-animation-fill-mode: forwards;	
    }

    Been quiet lately. But still playing with things.
    Working on this lock slowly for the last little while. Lots of images to make for it.
    Animated and static option. Custom images made for both.
    Need to do a few still. Also has moon phase (animated or static)



    Some night pics






    Since it is animated figured I'd post here too.
    Will be done soon. More images to do, redoing the touch animations and adding a few other things.

    Hope y'all are having a great day.

    }
    Think I just found the issue that was causing white screen on mine and could have been causing your white screen when wallpaper set to none.
    The dock fade in animation was deleted at the bottom of the WebKit animations in the OSX.css. That was the one with two }}.
    The Sunray animation was left at the bottom then with only one }. Added another } and all is good for me with latest on mavericks.

    Does this have anything to do with why there's a white flash between the TimedWalls changing?

    Thanks Simon,

    There was some confusion with the dock, I didn't think we needed it so I deleted all the code but Romy wanted it back in for his own use, thanks for the info.

    Romy,

    Simon is correct,

    In version R04 I sent you the sunray anim looked like this:

    Code:
    	@-webkit-keyframes sunray_anim {
    		0% { opacity : 0; -webkit-transform : scale(0.5, 0.5) translateZ(0); }
    		50% { opacity : 0.6; -webkit-transform : scale(1.0, 1.0) translateZ(0); }
    		90% { opacity : 0.3; }
    		100% { opacity : 0; -webkit-transform : scale(1.5, 1.5) translateZ(0); }
    }


    In the version you sent me a day or 2 ago the closing bracket is missing. You need to add it back in.

    Code:
    	@-webkit-keyframes sunray_anim {
    	0%	    {opacity : 0; -webkit-transform : scale(0.5, 0.5) translateZ(0); }
    	50%	    {opacity : 0.6; -webkit-transform : scale(1.0, 1.0) translateZ(0); }
    	90%	    {opacity : 0.3; }
    	100%	    {opacity : 0; -webkit-transform : scale(1.5, 1.5) translateZ(0); }
    
    /* TEXT STYLE */


    Thanks Simon.
