New and Improved Wallpaper Generator

I can’t seem to get the self-updating stuff to work for Mac. I’ll tackle it another day, I guess.

My, my, the wallpaper is beautiful. Looks like a lick of flame working towards the bottom as I burn.

Edit: Nevermind, I was just making a silly mistake and I figured it out. The instructions for the registry edit were clear and intuitive and the level of customization this offers is insane. I love it. @Masayoshiro Thank you very much!

If anyone is so inclined, I just used task scheduler to set it to update itself everytime I log in. I have yet to confirm if this will work or not.

I’m glad you like it! :slight_smile: Good luck with your studies!!

P.s. if you want the JLPT N5 kanji to appear in a logical order, you can change your kanji set to “JLPT Levels - Ordered by Heisig”, which has the first group of kanji in a logical order like “一二三四五六七八九十” (well, I guess only the first 10 kanji are in a logical order … hmm)

Thank you! :slight_smile: Your wallpaper does look like the matrix! I’m going to add that as a basic color scheme if you don’t mind.

In the early 00’s, I thought “Sayinara” was an Italian word. Needless to say, I wasn’t really studying Japanese language at that time, though I was a big fan of Domo-kun (I still have the Domo-kun poster from my childhood bedroom).

Let’s see if we can get it to work. Are there any error messages that you can post a screenshot of? If you can, post the code that you put into your files, but make sure to remove the API key (I think those are supposed to be private, anyways).

Awesome, I love that idea! It should work, because I’ve known other people to have it run daily, and also I’ve set up my own computer to run some other WK-related stuff hourly (unreleated to wallpapers).

The dual-monitors look nice! Also, where did you get that? That looks highly useful

I can’t seem to get the multiple monitor feature to work on Windows 10. It is correctly downloading the two wallpapers but the one for my second monitor is being set to both monitors.

Can you post your update.bat file’s content here please? Make sure to remove your API key before posting, though.

@cd /d %~dp0
@echo Downloading wallpapers
@curl -s -A “Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/41.0.2228.0 Safari/537.36” -o wallpaper1.png “http://wkw.natural20design.com/?k=&d=1"

Interesting! I’m getting a similar issue now, but I think I have a workaround.

Please add @timeout 1 between the WallpaperChanger.exe lines as in the snippet below, and let me know if it works. If it works for you, then I’ll update the instructions with this new line.

@echo Setting wallpapers
@WallpaperChanger.exe -m 0 wallpaper1.png
@timeout 1
@WallpaperChanger.exe -m 1 wallpaper2.png

Here’s mine using the color codes from the “Breeze Dark” theme!

I love the customization options you’ve added for sorting and titles! The site is honestly just super user-friendly and you clearly put a lot of thought and time into this, it’s a huge improvement. I do have one suggestion (if possible, of course).
Personally, I’d like a sort by Joyo list option at some point. The Kyoiku is great, but stops short of the kanji learned by students in Junior High. As someone who teaches at a Japanese school, it’s sort of a passive flex of mine to have my background set with kanji they may or may not know yet :stuck_out_tongue: If you can’t get around to it no biggie, I guess I’ll just have to settle for the already fantastic app you’ve created :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Hi @Houndstooth!

Thank you! I’m glad you are liking it so far :slight_smile: Your theme looks cool; do you mind if I add it to the site?

I didn’t add Jouyou yet because I wasn’t 100% sure how. I need an expert to ask, and now it turns out that you’re my expert.

Does this list look okay? And what sections are important? I’m guessing that I should start from the top and stop right after Secondary School Kanji – does that sound correct? The only thing that doesn’t seem right about this list is that it says it hasn’t been updated yet, and I would use the list from Wikipedia, but it’s not well ordered.

If that list isn’t good, do you know where I can get a complete list that’s in a good order?
