VladStudio: not very randomized?

Hi Jon,

I won't complain too much, but... ;)

VladStudio offers 587 images, I guess they are all available through the API you are using. Within the last hours (maybe 12 hours since yesterday) I got 3 images duplicate. There are no restrictions set in DF (All keywords, All categories).

Is there a bug in DF or VladStudio or is it simply bad luck?

Regards,
Carsten

The point of Randomize is that it randomly picks a wallpaper? Like Winamp plays your music on shuffle? If it's truly randomize (and I think it is) than it's just bad luck I guess ;) ctrl-win-r is your friend.

Like a throw of the dice is random, you might get the same numbers several times before you get snake-eyes. Some programs have a 'no repeat' built into their 'random' setting, but that would be extra coding Jon would have to do and I'm sure his hands are full at the moment... :-) Would be a good feature for future builds though...

What do you mean with "snake-eyes"? I didn't find a appropriate translation into german.

The "no repeat" option has already been addressed to Jon:

'In gambling, snake eyes is the outcome of rolling the dice in a game of craps and getting only one pip on each die.' - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snake_eyes :)
