If you wanted to change the logo to Netflix how would you change it?

octopyBot (266)

@JosephSanthosh copy all the code, download the netflix to repl.it, and change the image and bgcolor to match it.

JosephSanthosh (1171)

@octopyBot But where do I download the Netflix logo to repl.it? Can I copy the image?

JosephSanthosh (1171)

@octopyBot Like you made a file with the hulu image, but how do I make it a netflix image?

octopyBot (266)

@JosephSanthosh oh its easy. download the img, then click the 3 buttons next to create file. then, click upload file.
you will have it, and where I had

hulu = pygame.image.load("hulu_logo.png")

change hulu_logo.pngto the file name, in quotes.

@JosephSanthosh if you want to copy the code im fine with that, just link this screensaver and credit me.

@firefish Do you know how to make it or where I can learn it?

firefish (915)

@JosephSanthosh Or if you are like me and have a copy of the binary itself: if you want the link to the raw thing, i can give it to you

This 100% deserves to be on top of the 'hot' share board

@pr0p3rno0b10 thanks! me and my family were watching hulu last night and while my dad was making dinner, we paused it for him and this came up! so I decided to make it.

pr0p3rno0b10 (31)

@octopyBot Cool! You should make a project that asks the user what they want and then it does that screensaver. I would recommend making a function (If you do it).

octopyBot (266)

@pr0p3rno0b10 I would! that would be fun!

there-decimal added

SixBeeps (5067)

This thing hits corners too often, may I recommend setting hlsxcor and hlsycor to a random decimal rather than a random integer?

octopyBot (266)

@SixBeeps oh thanks! will do, thanks for the advice! um... how do I do that? would it be random.randfloat? or something else?

SixBeeps (5067)

@octopyBot You'd want random.uniform(). It takes in two parameters for the lowest and highest value, so I think you want something like random.uniform(1,4).

SixBeeps (5067)

@octopyBot No problem, and nice work!

octopyBot (266)

@SixBeeps thanks! that means alot coming from you.
