Enhancement Request (3.1.5) - Improve random wallpaper rotation

Avatar from Gravatar.com
1 discussion post
Just purchased DisplayFusion Pro. Only issue I'm having is that I'm seeing the same wallpaper images appear frequently. Maybe I haven't chosen the right options, but if I choose:

"Image Mode: Randomly change using Images from my computer" and added a folder of images and I've NOT checked "Show images in alphabetical order", then

I should be seeing a different image each time the wallpaper changes. But the random algorithm is just picking an image each time, instead of compiling a list of wallpapers and cycling through that list randomly. The result is that I'm seeing the same images repeat instead of seeing every image in the folders before seeing them again.

Can you fix this in an upcoming release? Thanks! :-)

This is something I am working on for a future release. you are correct, each image change is completely random instead of maintaining a list of previously displayed images. Thanks!

+1 again. :-)

Some other programs I've seen have a "No Repeats" in the Random settings, but as Jon has said before, this becomes a bit complicated when you have a directory with 10,000 images. Might tend to add to the memory foot print and lag time when changing wallpapers?

I am working on a better way to handle wallpaper changes for version 3.2. Hopefully it will perform better and allow for this feature to be implemented without adding any extra memory usage.
