problem with wallpapers function

Post by FlyAway »

two small problems, the first is that when you apply a wallpaper and then restores the previous everything works fine but the second time, with another photo, the program still applies the first photo that was set

Second problem is that the update check function does not work

thanks :)

re wallpapers: How soon did you change it again?
Xnview names the wallpapers based on dates (xnview_wallpaper_20100512.bmp for example). If you change the wallpaper more than once in the same day, the new one will overwrite the old one/s. This means that going back will always go back to {yesterday}, because the ones you set earlier {today} each ceased to exist when you set a new one {today}.

It would be better if xnview included a timestamp in the filename, but then again, people don't usually change their paper multiple times in one day. (I sometimes do when I'm trying to decide between 2 or more pics, which is how I noticed this issue in the first place. Since then, I just get around it be re-setting each paper manually.)
