Definitely needs a way to switch between desktop animations.

Charging anything for animated desktops or screensavers today is unrealistic. There's just too many free ones available. If they are trying to charge then the program should include a large library of animations, like hundreds, not just a couple. There's been a few GAotD programs that even allow one to create their own. And the average person could do a better job with one of those programs.

@ Comment No 3

I think you should try tweaking the settings on your PC.
When running either of these wallpapers my desktop icons stayed exactly where I placed them, both sides of my screen, top and bottom.

If you want to close the wallpaper or change settings I suggest trying the system tray icon where you can change autorun settings, tell the program to show a setting window on startup, show your desktop icons etcetera and even close the wallpaper.

All in all this is a nice giveaway, the first of the wallpapers was too simplistic for my tastes but is a refreshing change from my usual static picture.
Quality wise the only real problem is the resources taken to run.
A pretty desktop is one thing but a fast PC is essential no matter what.

One of my biggest pet peeves is when a program doesn't give any option to create a shortcut on the desktop. It's aggravating to have to go dig the program folder out of program files and try to figure out which file in the program is the one that you should create the desktop shortcut for.

In this case, I couldn't figure out which file was the right one to create a shortcut for and ended up just having to put a shortcut for the entire folder on the desktop and guessing which exe file would run which wallpaper.

It's free. It's cute. It installs easy.

What's not to like?

Something pretty harmless to play with [Running the GOTD setup.exe puts 2 files in the program's folder, adds shortcuts, & puts uninstall entries in the registry], Halloween Desktop Animations consists of 2 (fully portable) executable [.exe] files -- copy or move them to a USB stick & run them pretty much anywhere. The bad news is, in my experience where [or whether] they work properly is pretty much hit & miss -- e.g. on 1 PC this developer's desktop animations work in 7, but not Vista, while on this PC they'll work in XP, but 7's a no go.

In today's GOTD the 1st file [halloween3_full.exe] is listed as "Halloween Night" on the developer's page, while the 2nd [halloween4_full.exe] is called "Halloween Mansion" -- following the link at the top of this GOTD page you can see what each will look like. "Halloween Night" stretches to fill a wide screen monitor well, but stretched or not at higher rez [1080p] the animated witch may be a bit rough for some folks. IMHO "Halloween Mansion" does look nice, but you may want/need to turn off stretching -- stretched to wide-screen (for me at least) it breaks... it looks as if the black background layer doesn't stretch all the way to the right edge.

Installed correctly without any problems... but the wallpapers won't run here, unless I put a shortcut of some kind on the desktop (the problem is that I never have any shortcuts on the desktop)...
Other than this, the wallpapers are nice for Halloween... Thanks !
Halloween Desktop Animations were tested on Windows Vista Ultimate 64x SP2

May 29th we had the “forest bridge animated wallpaper”. I liked that one and I’m very pleased to see this “halloween animated wallpaper” today.
It is just funny to look at and two in one catch.

There are some improvements also, you can hide the icons now which is also very helpfull when you're using fences.

But it still does not remember the "stretch"-setting on restarting the programm.

Icon-background still gets changed and transparancy still gets lost though.

Happy Halloween 4u all (thanks GAotD and AnimWp7)

@Mick: could you point out where I can have these plentu others available on the net for free

Two animated wallpapers of good quality for $7.95 is a fair price, for free they're great. My daughter will definitely enjoy these.
Could anyone commenting about how there are high quality free ones (Plenty others) could you maybe give a link, if not then it's just a wasted comment. I'd be interested in them.
Otherwise thanks for the wallpapers AnimatedWallpaper7 and GOTD, they'll be good for a couple of days anyways.

Installed fine and quickly on Win7 x64. Unfortunately, the brief and problem-free installation was the best experience I had with this software. It repeatedly locked up every time I tried to run it at first(running as administrator made no difference), until I set it to WinXP SP3 compatibility mode. Then, it would lock up again when I tried to run one of the animated wallpapers, which were frozen instead of being animated.

I like animated desktop wallpapers but this particular one lacks the oomph that most I've seen have. There's not enough animation in either of the two wallpapers especially the second one and the first one is much too stylized. It lacks a manager and an easy way to cancel the wallpaper if wished. I had to go to the task manager to close the wallpaper down. also it needs shortcuts instead of the executables to run the wallpapers.

when running all desktop shortcuts are moved to the left hand side of the screen, which i found really annoying a si like my icons placed in categories and in particular places around the desktop. Thankfully when you do close the wallpaper down shortcuts do restore to their original positions. :)
