    Roxy: Sleepwalk

    Have you ever felt that Roxy simply doesn't sleepwalk through enough pages? Well, if you use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, now you can replace the number of pages she sleepwalks through from some of them to nearly all of them.

    Instructions:
    1. Install the Stylish extension (Chrome) (Firefox).
    2. Install this user style. Make sure to choose the correct browser when installing the style, since they each require slightly different CSS to work.
    3. Hover your mouse over the contents of any page. (Works best with pages containing a single 650x450 panel, which fortunately is most of them.)


    Have a screenshot:



    OTHER, SIMILAR OPTIONS:
    • If you use this Firefox-exclusive style instead, Roxy will sleepwalk her way across the entire world wide web instead of being confined to adventure panels.
    • This Greasemonkey script by agnomen should likewise attach Roxy to any page on the internet, using Javascript instead of pure CSS.
    • This Java program by unbridledExüberance should make Roxy sleepwalk across your computer screen every 2-10 minutes, whether you're surfing the web or not.

    Re: Roxy: Sleepwalk

    Okay, with some more tinkering I was able to get it to work in Firefox too. I found two ways in which the browsers differ on how they handle the :before selector and managed to make them complement each other, so now either one will work. Roxy everywhere!


    (Note that she won't sleepwalk in front of flashes, but this is Hussie's fault, not mine.)

    Lately Firefox has started to get a little buggy and does not handle flashplayer gracefully at all (memory leaks!). On the other hand, Chromium (and it's Betty Crocker Google-branded version Chrome) doesn't let you customize it's interface as well as Firefox does, and for a program that I'm going to use all the time, I want it to look nice and to be able to position things where I want them instead of having their position based on a some random dude's opinion of what's good. Luckily, Chromium has things positioned very well and almost how I would want it, but I don't like how it doesn't properly inherit my theme for it's fake window decoration, instead using the GTK+ default.

    If Only I could just sort of alchemize them into FireChrome! A flaming fox wrapped around a... blue... spinny... thing.... ready to take on the internets!


    Anyways, this thread is about Roxy sleepwalking across the interblag, not web browsers.
    It is simple and awesome. That's really all there is to say on the matter.


    Now I just need to make a compiz plugin to make Roxy randomly sleepwalk across my computer screen at random intervals

    Re: Roxy: Sleepwalk

    I've never had Firefox freeze (but that could be a fix in the Linux version not present in the Windows version), but yeah, it has a memory leak where memory from Flashplayer isn't always freed when the page containing the flash is closed.

    On the other hand, if you ignore the memory leaks, Chromium uses a LOT more memory than Firefox does (~50% more for normal pages), and might not preform as well on operating systems with poor schedulers *cough*Windows*cough, though still probably faster than Firefox if you have tons of tabs open with lots of stuff in them.

    This is a thing that needs to happen. I liked unbridledExüberance's Compiz plugin idea.

    Re: Roxy: Sleepwalk

    I found a bug/problem, although it may just be something in the CSS used. When my mouse is in the way of Roxy's sleepwalking, she disappears as soon as she hits the mouse, and doesn't return until I reenter the picture.

    Reading quickly through the source, it seems that it's based around the particular table classes used in Homestuck's CSS, so I would assume not. Then again, it could just be applied to all img tags, instead of just the tables. That may do it.

    Not in Chrome -- the method used there is tied a little too heavily to Hussie's horrible HTML to be ported to much of anywhere else -- but I bet it would be pretty easy in Firefox. I'll get back to you.

    Yeah, it doesn't work so well with Jailbreak's extra-wide panels right now because I used pixel widths where I should have used percentages. I'll fix that in a bit. The text of that particular panel is great, though.

    Yeah, unfortunately I don't think that's something I can really do anything about. It's triggered by the <tr> tag containing the panel image(s) being hovered over, but since Roxy isn't actually a daughter of that same <tr>, when the mouse goes over her then the original <tr> is no longer being hovered over. Or, well, I guess I might be able to fix that in Firefox, but I kind of like having both browsers behave in the same way.

    Reading quickly through the source, it seems that it's based around the particular table classes used in Homestuck's CSS, so I would assume not. Then again, it could just be applied to all img tags, instead of just the tables. That may do it.
    The :before and :after CSS selectors don't work with images, unfortunately, because they don't do what their names make them sound like they do. Instead of inserting content before or after the tag they're attached to (e.g. <img />), they insert content before or after the existing content of the tag they're attached to. Since <img /> can't have any content (since it has no closing tag), it's impossible to use :before and :after with it. I have to compromise and use a completely useless <tr> instead.

    Anyway! I'll look into adding her to the world wide web (in firefox). Should be doable.

    Roxy is now flying on a flaming fox, (not really, would that be cool though? probably not, seeing as it's on fire.)

    So I don't know if I'm just insanely stupid, but it's not working for me (I'm in Chrome).

    EDIT: I got it to work now. Sorry thanks.

    I know just enough about the software side of computers to understand how this could be a huge pain in the ass, so don't worry about it. Although maybe the solution would be to make a new thing instead of porting this thing? I mean maybe the workload would be 6 of one, half a dozen of the other, but I can't imagine it would actually be that hard to print an animated image on the screen.

    Firefox-exclusive: sleepwalk across every site ever! Guaranteed to get annoying fairly quickly.


    aggrievesTemulence: I'll explain why this one doesn't work in Chrome. Spoilered for the explanation being of limited interest/accessibility.

    Re: Roxy: Sleepwalk

    I made a thing in Java (yes, I know using Java for this- or pretty much anything actually- a massive waste of resources, but I just wanted to throw something together really quick) that makes Roxy sleepwalk across your screen every 2 - 10 minutes. To close the program, double right-click Roxy.

    Screenshot:[link]
    Download: [link] (REQUIRES JAVA 7. If you don't have Java 7, you'll just get a black box moving around the screen.)

    It won't work properly if you don't have compositing enabled. If you're using basically any non-ancient version of Mac or Linux, you're fine unless you're using a window manager with compositing off. Window Vista and later should have the necessary support as well. Probably.

    How smoothly Roxy moves accross the screen is entirely up to your window manager.

    EDIT: Updated program. The roxy sprite is now embedded in the JAR, so you can run the jar file from anywhere and it will work. Roxy also now comes from any side of the screen and behaves properly at the top and left sides of the screen, though there is a bit of flicker when she is partially offscreen on the left or top edge of the screen since Java doesn't allow vsync with Graphics2D for some stupid reason.

    Re: Roxy: Sleepwalk

    What precisely do you mean by "go on mspa"? It doesn't work on the front page (mspaintadventures.com); you have to view one of the individual story pages.

    Can you copy and paste the code you're using? You should be able to get it by clicking the Stylish extension icon and clicking "Edit" under the appropriate (non-disabled) style.
