I had not seen this thread till now and I have read it from beginning to end completely absorbed.

Splinter is a program that I would never use but I can think of many people that probably would, as an exercise in creativity if nothing else.

From the original concept to the present outcome I find the enthusiasm with which it has been/is being developed remarkable.

Now I need to try and catch up with all the things I should have been doing while I was reading this. :D
I spent 25 years training to be an eccentric then I woke up one morning and realised that I'd cracked it.
I've not had to try since.

I wonder what happens if I click on thi

Thank you for the post, I very much appreciate it. 2 months ago, I would have been inexplicably offended that you would say u would never use Splinter. rather than appreciating the infusium and positive comments you made.

I'm slowly getting a grasp on Aspergers and how to handle correspondence. truth is your comments were some of the best I've ever heard. it is a great compliment to say that you would never use it but you see how others can.

thank you thank you thank you

My friend, the problem you struggle with is one that I know a great deal about although not from first hand experience.
Like many of your fellow sufferers while you struggle in one direction you are obviously extremely gifted in others.
The fact that you can openly acknowledge the condition as well as by your own words make progress in dealing with it says a great deal.
From people I have met who have the condition they often face a bigger challenge with how those around them deal with it than how they deal with it themselves.

I wish you well and if ever you want someone to talk to about things drop me a line.

Pilgrim.

Atlantis Edition Splinter


Atlantis_Editiion_Promo_Screencap.jpgSplinter

Key_Map.jpgSplinter

WITH INTERACTIVE DESKTOP LEVEL STARGATE.

NOTE- THIS RELEASE ONLY CONTAINS THE GATEROOM FROM ATLANTIS. THE "FULL" SPLINTERFACE WILL BE RELEASED NEXT WEEK....

See it in action on youtube here



Atlantis Edition is my favorite splinterface, yet. Stargate is my all time favorite universe. This splinterface consists of the gaterooms from SGA and SGU, the control room with a view of the stargate from SG-1, a hive queen's throne room, a puddle jumper cockpit, and maybe a couple of others. Started off as just the Atlantis gateroom and expanded.

DOWNLOAD LINKS (CHOOSE YOUR SCREEN RESOOLUTION. Splinter will run in any screen resolution but the stargate wormhole animation is set by coordinates. If your resolution is not listed, let me know what it is and I will make a package for it.)

1920x1080
http://rs973p6.rapid...plinter_SGA_ONLY.zip

1600X900
http://rs862p3.rapid...on_Splinter_1600.zip

1366X768
http://rs862p1.rapid...on_Splinter_1366.zip

1280X720
http://rs862p3.rapid...on_Splinter_1280.zip


ALL THREE STARGATES ARE INTERACTIVE AND ANIMATED. THE WORMHOLE CONNECTION AND THE PUDDLE WAVES. The gate symbols, also, activate on the stargate like they do in the show, by clicking on the "social media' trigger over to the left. All open splicons are initiated by one of the text triggers on the left side of the room.

I am particularly proud of my Firefox splicon. Ascended Adria. She's a fire fox, no? Yes.....


I also integrated XWidget into this splinterface for the monitoring functionality of the Windows' system, volume control, and a couple of other little treats. Splinter and XWidget work perfectly together.

FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS IN ORDER TO GET THE SYSTEM MONITORING AND THE STARGATE ANIMATION WORKING CORRECTLY.

And, yes, I realize that Atlantis doesn't have a standard Pegasus Galaxy DHD in the gateroom. But I had initially planned on only doing this one page and I liked how the Chrome icon fit over it.


---------------------------INSTRUCTIONS AND RESOURCES--------------------------------------------

Place Atlantis folder into into C:Splinter. Place the Atlantis file anywhere you wish (documents by default). Place the "xwidget" folder into "Documents" if you have already installed XWidget.(download link below). Launch the splinterface file from the Splinter task tray icon.

You must have XWidget installed in order to have the monitoring functionality enabled. You will get an error everytime you run the "SYSTEM" spli-stack unless you either have it installed or remove the "C:SplinterAtlantisAtlantis_Edition.XThemePkg" line from the spli-script by right clicking "SYSTEM" trigger, going to the script tab, and deleting the line at the end of the script.

View the "key" iamge in the zip file for how the layout of the splinterface is set up.

NOTE----Click on the P-90(gun) in the top left of the page and you will switch to a new character. Keep clicking on the weapons to cycle through all of the characters. Clicking on a character image will take you to the Gateworld.net wiki page about that character.



Splinter 1.0.0.18 Installer link (INSTALL THIS FIRST TO SET FOLDER PATHS, THEN GET THE UPDATED 1.0.0.19 FROM THE LINK BELOW THIS ONE TO HAVE SCALING ENABLED)
http://sites.google....aller%201.0.0.18.zip

Splinter 1.0.0.19 Portable (place these files into C:Program FilesDark Matter DeploymentsSplinter and overwrite the other files.)
http://sites.google.....0.0.19_Portable.zip


Download XWidget from http://xwidget.com


POTENTIAL "BUG"...ON SOME MACHINES THE TRIGGERS APPEAR ABOVE SPLICONS WHEN YOU FIRST RUN THE SPLINTERFACE. FOR NOW, YOU JUST HAVE TO CLICK ON THE "BOTTOM" ICON IMAGE TO SET THE Z-ORDER CORRECTLY. IT WILL ONLY HAPPEN THE FIRST TIME YOU RUN IT UPON OPENING. THIS WILL BE FIXED NEXT BUILD.

BE SURE TO SEE ATLANTIS EDITION SPLINTER POST ABOVE THIS ONE

Poor Shunned Edition Splinter

Poor_Shunned_Edition23433.jpgSplinter

View the splanimation here


This is the first ever 'port" of the imagery within a Rainmeter skin to a splinterface. Thanks to blackeye-beast having already created the art, this took me less than a day to recreate it in Splinter's own way. I will add sound effects for the splanimation later this evening, and update the download file. If you follow the instructions below or in the zip file, you will have working hotlinked icons by default.

Download the splinterface here or through google at 2.5MB file only. http://sites.google....Edition_Splinter.zip EDIT---do NOT download the file from this website. It does not have the folders for link paths. I am unable to load the updated zip to this site so you must get it from my google direct download.


Instructions-----------
Unzip the package and place the Splinter folder in C:. Just open up your C drive and drop that folder into it. It has all of the shorcuts and scripts. If it isnt in the right location none of the hotlinked icons will work. If it asks you to merge the folder, do so. This means that you already ran the installer and have the folder path set up. All icons except the MS Office suite should be botlinked already.

Place the "Poor Shunned Edition Splinter" file in any directory, though it is usually best if you put it in the Documents folder, as that is where Splinter looks, by default.

Launch Splinter and then right click the task tray icon and select Open. Navigate to the poor shunned file and load it. That is it.

When launched, there wil be 5 blue "stars" on the screen. The one in the center launches the splanimation. The one in the top right shows and hides all of the triggers used to initiate the splicons. Top left opens and closes the top console bar(SEE NOTE NEXT PARAGRAPH) . The bottom left one opens up the HAL9000 spl-EYE-con, the bottom right one will "kill' the scene, making all splicons and triggers close instanly, in case something happens and there are triggers or splicons still on screen after you close it.

NOTE---When the "contraption" is open, and you add a trigger, the trigger will appear BENEATH the top console 'bar" because it is a splicon and they are above them in the window layers.
So the TOP LEFT STAR in the middle of the screen can be clicked to open and close that bar so that you can get and move your triggers without having to close down the entire contraption.

Here is my claim and challenge to any and all human beings, period: Splinter is the most dominant desktop software, of any kind, on the planet, and I can prove it.

"Your" question: How?

My answer: No, you tell ME how I can prove it, to YOU, to make you believe that, and THAT is what I will do.

I plan to post this on every desktop customization forum, blog, every download site, everything. I would like to be challenged by editors and admins, because of their then being able to convey it to their audience. If there is not enough challenges to keep me busy, then I will do for the general public as much as possible. The quality of imagery does not matter in the scheme of what is being done, so dont think that I am going to design you your dream interface. I only have to show the functionality done, in Splinter, to make what you need to be swayed

Challenges can be submitted to me at any time, but I will not begin them, unless from an influential enough editor/admin, until I finish deadmau5 dishin 5plinter, which i am over six months into.

Wrecking Crew Orchestra "Electronic Dance Class" Youtube page within deadmau5 dishin 5plinter



deadmau5 dishin Splinter visualblast part1 - about half of splinterface shown.. again, it isn't meant to show off my mediocre artistic ability, it is to show what is possible to be created\, with Splinter. "98%" of the "animation" is occuring in real-time, including the audio visualizers. Final timing adjustments have been made since recording the video. The vid is an unedited, direct transfer to Youtube from the screen recorder.

"Half" of the audio visualizing done with the Xion player and the other "half" is AS3 built in Flash CS5. All AS3 visualizers were designed by others.
All credits in final release
