[3.1][3.2][CDB] Fred The Bat (Cursor Follower)

Post by Administrator » Mon Oct 31, 2016 1:50 pm

Extension Name: Fred The Bat Image
Author: HiFiKabin

Extension Description: Image follows the cursor around the screen of the index page, just right for Halloween. If the user has JS disabled then Fred will not work and is hidden from view.

Extension Version: 1.0.0

Supported Styles:
  • Prosilver
Notes:
  • The code is run every 120 microseconds and may cause problems with low CPU and low memory devices.
  • There are 3 other images in the .zip file below that you can use instead of Fred. To use one of them, unzip the package, then unzip the image you require. You will then have a folder called theme on your desktop. Disable the extension, and replace the hifikabin/fredthebat/styles/all/theme folder with the one you have just unzipped. Enable the extension and refresh your browser.
  • Why Fred? I had him on a phpBB 2 forum many years ago and someone called him Fred. The name has stuck
  • To use your own image, save it to root/ext/hifikabin/fredthebat/styles/all/theme/images and edit root/ext/hifikabin/fredthebat/styles/all/theme/fredthebat.css changing cursor_fred.gif to your new images name and adjust the height and width as needed.
