The Gambas Intro Music

Post by stevedee » Sunday 04th April 2021 9:47am

I must admit that the musical intro from the first Gambas screen freaks me out a bit...I always wonder where it is coming from.

I know it plays on Christmas day and Easter Sunday; has anyone noticed it on other days of the year?

i've seen the code.
25 Dec
15 Aug (Assumption day)
Easter and Easter + lent

  dNow = Date(Now)
  'dNow = Date(2020, 12, 25)
  iYear = Year(dNow)
  dEaster = Date.EasterDay(iYear)
  
  If dNow = Date(iYear, 12, 25) Then
    sPlay = "bells.mp3"
  Else If dNow = Date(iYear, 8, 15) Or If dNow = dEaster Or If dNow = dEaster + 39 Then
    sPlay = "spiritus.mp3"
    bHasTear = True
  Else
    Return
  Endif

Yeah, it can be a little startling at times.

Jingle Jingle, Merry Christmas all! :D

Was waiting to hear what it was. Now going to wait until Easter to hear the other one. (Yes I could simply find the mp3 but that's cheating. ;) )

Did you notice the snow too?

I'd like a switch to turn the audio off. it's nice but my computer is also my music system and the bells play over my music :-\

It's a nice touch though :)

Yep. Wonder if we'll get eggs on Easter.

I hear ya on the switch. Guess you just need to start Gambas up in the morning and keep it running all day. ;)
