Hey all. So I just d/l'ed the Snow Fall Widget from Cydia and I must say I really love it. However, as expected, and as mentioned in at least one other thread, it causes much lag. Instead of removing it, I would like to fiddle with the CSS and HTML files that it is based on and see if I can configure it so that it needs to perform less processes so that it is lighter, and therefore runs faster. I took a look at the code...and I think it's the CSS that's commented, but still I understand neither of the languages (I have almost no exposure to programming). So I need your help guys...please Please Register or Log in to view images . Btw the license permits me to modify and redistribute the files in the Snow Fall Widget, so I am not violating any agreements, incase someone asks. So, so far I figured out that if I cut down the amount of snowflakes involved from 32/33 to around 15 (because a lot of them look alike), it should greatly help with speed (the number of random integers need to be generated is now half). But now, how do I implement this in the code? Can someone guide me? (I'll post the code when I go on my computer; I'm on my iPod now). Secondly how can I get the widget to stop running when I launch an application (making sure it ignores those that run in the background, like mail and safari). Finally, just a change to the original function, how can I gt it to run when my device is locked? But only when the display is showing; I don't want it to run when my iPod is asleep, it'll drain the battery. Thanks guys, I hope you help me. It'll be he first bit of coding a mod for my iPod I ever did...and I really want to!
