UPDATED:

Ok i have changed the code a little bit and added some images to the zip folder at current i havent added a menu in admin CP to globally turn this off
when i manage to figure out the new hooks system ill have a bash at doing it for you .

You can easily add your own images just upload your image to the effects folder which should be located
in your forums image folder for example /forum/images/misc/effects/
Then change the code to point to the new image name.

The images will only work with the Forum Effects code


ok lets get started .

first goto admincp > styles & templates > edit templates and locate header and edit
at the very very top before anything else. Add one of the following codes,



For small snowflakes add this code


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

find and edit this line

src="/forum/images/misc/effects/snow.js

point it to your forum image path

****************************************************************************

For big snowflakes and other effects add this code


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

find and edit this line

var snowsrc="/forum/images/misc/effects/effect(*).gif"

point it to your forum image path and delete the (*) and put a number from 1-18 (make sure there is no space for example effect1) to use the pre-added images.

****************************************************************************

now download forum_effects.zip and upload the effects folder to your forum image path for example /forum/images/misc/


****************************************************************************

Few addons for this modification.

****************************************************************************

Let your forum members choose weather or not to display the effect. - Thanks to SHANE-D-PAIN


Go to AdminCP => User Profile Fields => Add new User Profile field => Single Select Menu

Title: View Forum Effects
Description: Choose yes to view forum effects.
Options:
Yes
No
Set Default: Yes, but No First Blank Option
Editable By User: Yes
Display Page: Options: Other Options

Write down your field# . i.e field5


Change X to the Field id.


Just remember to wrap the code with the if tags provided.

****************************************************************************

Make modification optional per usergroup. - Thanks to SHANE-D-PAIN

Where 1,2,3,4 & 5 are the ids of the Usergroups that this is to be displayed to.

For Example:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

****************************************************************************

To Save on the heavy CPU usage that this mod uses follow the instructions below - Thanks to Solitary Seraph

Please Note, This is for the small snowflakes and not the big ones.

Edit the snow.js with any type of editor (ie. notepad).



Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

The first two will let you change it, Solitary Seraph changed it to 20/75, and it dropped to about 50% cpu usage for his/her members with bad computers.
Keep tweaking with it and eventually it should work nicely for everyone, or you can turn it off with the last bit, for the mozilla users.

****************************************************************************

I would also like to thank the following ppl

Smiry Kin's - for the nicer snow image.

****************************************************************************

PLEASE NOTE: Big snowflakes and other effects may slow down your board and may not be viewable via firefox browsers. The small flakes should be ok and can be viewed by firefox.

hope u enjoy!

Very Nice man, but one question could this be made to be turned on/off through the admin CP and not through file edits. or Set to schedule like turn it on randomly etc so It does not get old fast..?

Mabey we can all work on some different types of Icons to float around Im pretty good with Photoshop but my coding skills lack :P Id be willing to work on these

heck even mabey add in a random gif from specificed folder to mix it up.

Is there any way to change the path (rather than /forum) in the hack? I can do it manually, but not everyone has it set up in their /forum directory. Which is what is causing some problems (me for the first 2 seconds).
Awesome hack, btw. I'm going to play around with leaves later.
