Major bug with random wallpaper

Postby molitar » Sat Sep 11, 2010 11:35 pm

Ok when you have random wallpaper cycling set you are not able to set a specific picture to the wallpaper.. try to set it and it chooses another random wallpaper. So not able to manually set a wallpaper at all when random cycling is turned on.. also not able to re render current wallpaper again it chooses a random pic!

I'm pretty sure this is caused by how you are using layouts.
For each wallpaper object in your layout, you have a property called "Which wallpaper". According to the help file this is described as follows:
Which Wallpaper: This setting allows you to specify which wallpaper will be displayed in this Wallpaper Object.
Auto: The wallpaper displayed in this Wallpaper Object is the wallpaper that Wallpaper Cycler has chosen when it cycles or is the wallpaper that you have selected when you manually set a wallpaper.

What this means is that you need at least 1 wallpaper object with "Which Wallpaper" set to "Auto".

Can you please check your layouts for this?
