Noted!

I have been thinking about multiple monitor support (I actually develop it on a multimonitor system), but I wasn't sure what kind of information or graphics to put on the other monitors. Having just another duplicate running no the other screen seems kind of boring. Any suggestions?

Ok, I will try to get autologon into the next or two release.

can u make it where we can put whatever flash stuff we want on the 2nd monitor?

lets see need more themes

make a option so alt ctl del brings up task manager instead of front motion first

some sort of tutorial flash is hard :/

something like windows login on xp that shows # of emails course i suppose we could have flash connect to a server to check and display that info

sitting for awhile

Is there anyway you could make it so that when you let FrontMotion sit at the login, after a certain amount of time it will fade out alittlebit, or maybe some kind of feature within the theme that makes it act as a screen saver.

Just an idea, would be cool if it would just fade out after like 4mins of sitting.

The fade out idea is good, but I think it should be left up to the theme developer to put it in. Thoughts?

Looks like you're working on everything I want, except for user icons.

Seems mine disappeared off of the start menu. It would be nice if it would show up on there and the login again if it is possible.

can the default screensaver be triggered from within the flash file?

Would like to see the ability to have specific themes on specific days. FrontMotion would see that it's the 23rd of December, and show a Christmas logon..

Set Low resolution as Standard resolution via Control panel

Excellent piece of software!
Is it possible to display Flash-Login always with lower resolution?
Perhaps via FrontMotion Control panel.
On my "old" PC (Pentium II 350) High resolution is 10 to 20 times slower
than Low resolution! :?

FMLogin=Great Tool,These will make it greatest

Post by Saymaad » Tue Oct 18, 2005 1:32 am

A heads up.

In the next version of FMLogin, there will be intergrated previews. Existing preview.swf will still work, but the easier way is to only have login.swf. This makes it easier since you will only need to update one fla/swf file instead of two. The only thing extra that needs to be done is a little cut and paste of a script. I am updating all the themes and will be posting the fla later on.

For this to work, the control panel will load login.swf and set the FMPreview variable to 1. In your login.swf, when you stop(), you check for FMPreview and call a timer which will play the movie to the next frame after a timeout. Both scripts will be in the updated fla.

I will be glad when the above thing will arive, cause making previews over and over again is very booring pause of 30 default frames will be great ;).

Is it possible to interact the login with registry?? well it would've been great if we could simply read some registry values like current OS version registered user and user picture location it will make the login show the logos of OS and user pictures of the user set in control panel. (I think i've made myself clear in it)

Plus the control panel is very small I have made slight adjustments to it and will later post a preview here now it looks something like a pro 8)

Waiting for ur responce my themes u know are waiting for the above changes :D

I know what you mean, I got pretty tired of it myself too when I started to make lots of changes to the themes.

Will have to look into this one and see how it can be done generally and still have good security.

Is the FMPreview in your tasklist of FMLogin creation ?

I only need something to read specific registry keys not to modify them.

Thnx always for the most earliest replies :)

Sorry if my messages bugs you :( but i wanted to knew when exactly will the new version release ? could you please post a date ?

And in the download section of your website why dont you give the release date of current version. It'll be good to see that.

ahh.. and what about my registry request ?? Have you also noted that ??
Just we will set some variable example 3. The control panel will get it as read 3 registry keys than in flash we set reg_key1 to reg_key3 it will be enough to read 3 keys, 1 for windows version, 2nd for wallpaper or userpic & third what ever is important ??

I have made some adjustments to you control panel applet please check the image and tell me is it ok to have that and can distribute it as a patch on my website with your login ?? full credits will be yours? Is it legal ?
