Matrix Duck

Submitted By Chad Wollman (buletman)


A simple Matrix-Like Adium Duck dock icon.

Say it 3 times fast and I'll give you a cookie.

I will be updating it while I continue to edit my iMac to make it as Matrix-Like as possible.

ya know what would be really bad ass? make the code scroll!... a great example of a full animated icon is wobblo... im trying to use it as a template for my stargate icon, so the ring will move. yeah well i think this icon kicks serious agent butt.

Haha, thanks alot...this is my first attempt at theming anyway. Well, for the past 2 days something struck me that made me want to theme everything. If you like this, you would love my OS theme. Everything from the Startup panel, to Adium is matrix-themed. Most of it created by me.

i totally agree with crazycole. it would be the most bad ass icon ever. Did you get the idea form the forums? i saw someone on there with a matrix duck icon.

I just thought of it because I am remaking my whole OS to look like Matrix. Thats cool if someone else already did it, sorry if I stepped on anyone's toes. Once I figure out how to animate, I will give it a try, but something tells me it is going to be alot harder than what I already did :/.

no eyes, no beak (naw, keep the beak)
code is static for offline
code is scrolling for online
code changes to fire code for alert with flapping wings
yeah, that'd be cool :)

side note, animating is as simple as creating the separate scrolling images and then listing them sequentially in the plist. ok, there's a slight bit more than that, but not really. use the connection animation to help you.

o wait were can i get your theme stuff?

o btw... do you think some one can make a webkit that looks like the console from the movie that would be great

That is a link to some of the OS redesign I have done. The theme is XiTiBook2, and I altered the text color a bit. I have also changed the boot panel, to a very matrix looking theme. I have not figured out how to edit the login screen yet though. Otherwise, I think I am well on my way.

As far as the scrolling text, I have no idea what you mean by plist and such. Although I have seen plist files, I don't know what they are. :/. I'm a newb...haha...

Works great. Best icon set there is. As long as you have enough RAM. Or else it crashes Adium pretty bad. But otherwise perfect.
