Title: registry tips and tricks
Post by: thc on November 24, 2004, 08:27:40 AM
hi all,

you know that you can add an image with today config and add this one in your skin by the "image,x,y,%owner image%" command.
but do you kown that you can add any image with a registry hack?

example:
with Radar.exe, you have downloaded an image called "traffic.png in directory "\Program Files\TodayPlus\Radar

go to HKCU\Software\SRSSoft\TodayPlus\Image and create a new string value:  
name= traffic  
string= \Program Files\TodayPus\Radar\traffic.png

and in your skin add the command: image,x,y,%traffic%

it's very useful for a skin like Hammerskin, when you change themes, you don't need put two traffic.png into two images directory...

you can also add "owner email" in   HKCU\Software\SRSSoft\TodayPlus\Text
name: owner  email
string= your current email

I had a look at the file and removed some "Thumbs.db."  Removing them took about 13% out of the file size. :angel:

No worries.  I hate the fact Windows generates them automatically in the first place.  :evil:
