Say hi to Jimi
« on: February 26, 2015, 05:39:07 pm »
Hi,
I made a funware for my self and I think others may be happy with it.
Jimi is a bug under you screen and its alive and kind of real.

I upload exe and source separate for who want compile it him/her self.Its need BGRABitmap.
Also you should know its work only on windows and tested in win8.

Just take look at screen shots and test it and also say hi to it,Its nice to meet it.
Download

PS,Me and Jimi will be glad to hear you opinion.

Hello!

Nice and funny little program.  :)

One question. I started it and stopped it from the Lazarus IDE. If I start the executable directly, how do I stop it?

Ok, why not.

Another question. May I consider that link as stable? I would like to put a link to your code on this website. Or would you allow me to put a copy of your ZIP file?

No, I didn't forget it. You have to click on the word "Jimi" to open another page where the link is ("Lien de téléchargement"). There is also a link to this discussion ("Discussion sur le forum anglophone").  ;)

I never thought I'd fall in love with a bug :lol It has some strange effect in my psyche; while I'm concentrated writing or reading something, it distracts me, but I kinda love it the way it does :D

Hi XiraxXirax

Thanks for this program, it is great!

I would suggest one optimisation, to load and keep in memory the bug image. The following line can be in FormCreate:
Code: [Select]
jim := TBGRABitmap.Create('bug.png');and in FormDestroy:
Code: [Select]
jim.Free;
This impression of a real bug is convincing!

@circular :
Thank you,I'm proud if you like it.
Source is a mess as you see and probably I send Jimi to take a shower and buy for it a new home GitHub.

@Leledumbo :
I don't know to how to do this in Linux desktops, I learn from you too much,I guess if you have time you can help Jimi to live in Linux too.
It's one of my sources maybe it helps :

If you found a way,tell me to clean th source for you.

@circular :
I upload new Jimi's source with your suggestion.
