Question Eel only showing part of his head

I have just had my computer serviced and since then Mr Eel does not come out.

In six passes all I could see is part of his head (lower RH corner of cave) then disappear again

Please help I miss that fella.

Thanking in advance

Keith

I think that service person violated Mr. Eels privacy. Eels have short memories so I think he will soon forget this invasion and venture forth again

The eel moves at random, so it's probably just coincidence that he hasn't come out. There's nothing in the code to keep the eel out of sight if a computer has just been serviced

Jim

Thank you

For some reason he always came out at every pass.

I will let him be and see what happens.

Hi Jim,

I'm trying very hard not to add to the feature creep . But, when you add the new feather-duster worms and a setting to keep the starfish at the last shut-down position can you also add a setting to disable the eel? The eel is really a nice addition, but sometimes it is more serene when he stays hidden .

Thank you for continuing with the new additions, hopefully they will not delay your home construction too much. Also, add me to the list of owners who will gladly purchase (full price) the first creature-pack when it is released... when or if it happens .

The eel is part of the background and can't be turned off. For now you've got the option of using version 3.1, which is probably what you are doing.

Thanks Nicki,

Now that you reminded me, I do remember Jim saying that... but it was so long ago I forgot.

Yeah, I didn't really want to open up the Interface can-o-worms.

Jim,

Will the new feather-duster worms and starfish control be added to version 3.1? Nicki is right - 3.1 is used when the mood is for fish but not eel.

The reason I was telling people to use v3.1 was so that I could avoid opening up the User Interface code to add a control for turning the eel on and off. If I have to do that anyway to add a starfish-on-glass control, then I might as well add one for the eel.

Oh, well - I have to look at the code anyway. I'm providing it to a Japanese company to do a Droid translation.

Jim,

I was really trying hard to NOT add much to the feature creep pile . However, since you are willing to do it (grudgingly? ) your labor is greatly appreciated.

Question

The Eel is still hiding which is rather strange as he was always poking his head out.

This might be a silly question but could it be one of the Adobe programs I have not installed or its playing up.

I don't see how that would have any effect.

Maybe it's like photos on packages that are enlarged to show texture?

Question

Jim

That is what it used to be but certainly not that speed.

Would it help if I reinstalled the program again?

I still have my Code.

Can you give me a link to Download it again please.
