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.

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

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

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).

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!

You can make the big snow working in firefox by modify this script

find
else if (ns6up){
document.getElementById("dot"+i).style.top=yp[i];
document.getElementById("dot"+i).style.left=xp[i] + am[i]*Math.sin(dx[i]);
replace with this
else if (ns6up){
document.getElementById("dot"+i).style.top=yp[i]+'px';
document.getElementById("dot"+i).style.left=xp[i] + am[i]*Math.sin(dx[i])+'px';

I was wondering. Could this be edited so that there was a on/off switch, and a large/small/both snowflakes one too in admin cp?

Ok, here's a 30 second random thought for those wanting users to control the option. Don't shoot me if it doesn't work, because I've not tested it.
Go into your admincp and create a new user profile field. 2 choices yes no.
Put in the header an if statement - like <if condition $userinfo[field99] == 1 (or yes or whatever) or whatever the syntax is (can't think at the moment). then the script - that way if it meets the criteria then voila!
Ok, off to bed :P

Thanks for this. I just tweaked mine like this and will report back as to the users experience. Thanks again.
