Patch Released – Translation Updates, Default Properties, Keyboard input for URLs, Fixes (Build 1.1.0)
Wallpaper Engine – Biohazard
This patch brings a heap of translation updates and completes a lot of missing strings. We had some proofreading done and filled in the gaps for many languages (Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Czech, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese-Brazilian, Portuguese-Portugal, Russian, Spanish, Thai, Turkish), more on that here. Once again my heartfelt thanks to everyone who has helped to translate Wallpaper Engine since the beginning and helped to bring it to people all over the world!
Note that the latest brand new features won’t be fully translated yet, this is the curse of the rapid development and releases I’m doing. I prefer this way of working, however, otherwise, I would be many, many months behind the current feature set of Wallpaper Engine.
A few special properties can now be applied to all wallpapers and new wallpapers at once, those include alignment, position, volume, mouse parallax and playback rate. To do this, change them in your current wallpaper to your ideal settings and click on ‘Apply to all wallpapers’ at the bottom:
Here you can now choose which properties should be applied to all wallpapers and you can optionally restore their initial defaults too. Once you’ve set this up, all new wallpapers will use these properties as defaults as well and using their reset button will revert to your custom values until you restore the initial defaults again.
I’ve removed the social icons at the bottom and instead put the opacity slider there. Now it is easier accessible than through the context menu previously.
Keyboard input for URLs
Local URLs now have keyboard input, you need to assign a hotkey to hide the desktop icons and hide them, then keyboard input will be sent to the wallpaper:
This is very experimental and still a bit glitchy, but better than not having any keyboard input. If I can figure out ways to improve this then I will, but right now this the best that is possible. On Windows 7 this requires the ‘block background’ option in the settings.
Disabling the Store
I have decided to disable the item store integration in Wallpaper Engine. All in all, it just caused confusion and I couldn’t make this work to a level that creators, users and I could really be content with. It gave the false impression on the store that there are no free wallpapers available, the Workshop curated voting page confused countless people trying to download wallpapers because it is the first thing displayed there and people bought items without knowing that they need Wallpaper Engine to use them. Then there is also the issue that I cannot accept video formats due to codec license reasons and that I’m taking a risk with the application format that I can’t sustain here either – how would I go about verifying them without having full access to their source code and any dependencies they have – the list goes on.
Many of these things come down to Steam not quite being user-friendly enough and I don’t have access to change Steam’s website. After putting a lot of thought into this, disabling the item store is the only way to solve these issues for me and finally, I did not want Wallpaper Engine to continue to be an application which may incur further costs to its users after the initial purchase.
Past wallpapers that were purchased are – of course – unaffected, the only change is that the store and curation queue are now invisible.
Leaving Early Access
Wallpaper Engine is going to leave Early Access soon, this update is getting things ready for that. I’ve created a new trailer, updated the store page and also got store page translations and screenshot translations now along with a new homepage for Wallpaper Engine. All that will be set live at the same time the Early Access status is removed. This build has been bumped to version 1.1.0 already, I might release another update if issues pop up or more translation updates come in. Stay tuned!
Since many people have been asking about price changes, I’ve finally decided that the price won’t be changed after leaving Early Access.
Reverted update of the FreeImage library because the new version can’t save JPEGs to memory.
