Get your own Animal Farm with xaff 3.0
xaff is a clone of Stefan Gustavson's xteddy with one basic difference
(It may accordingly be distributed under the GPL)
and some additional features. The basic difference is the fact that
unfortunately only a small part of the population of our planet knows
its prototype, the "Äffle" that - with his friend "Pferdle" - fills
up the breaks between the ads in the regional TV of the "Südwestrundfunk"
in the Southwest of Germany. The intention of this wonderful program
is making this sympathetic monkey famous throughout the whole world by free
distribution on (I hope) non-crashing non-Microsoft systems. Like xteddy it can
be stopped by pressing 'q' or 'Q' with the mouse pointer over it.
animal selecting optionsA preselection is already done by the call of the program. The name of the executable file is "xaff" (Affe = monkey). There are also 2 links named "xpferd" (Pferd = horse) and "xzebra" that cause xaff to appear as a horse or a zebra. A zebra is defined as a horse with white ears, a white face and a black mouth.
Further shape corrections can be done with the following options:
-aff, -aeffle, -monkey, -mongele, -xaff -> monkey -pferd, -pferdle, -gaul, -horse, -horsele, -xpferd -> horse -zebra, -xzebra -> zebra
-gosch <color> -mouth <color> color of mouth or horse's zebra strips -xicht <color> -face <color> color of face or horse's face excluding zebra strips -aug <color> -eye <color> color of eyes -ohr <color> -ear <color> color of ears -hemd <color> -shirt <color> color of horse's shirt -all <color> The whole head is set to <color>. Following color options are taken into account. -mono b/m mode<color> must be a valid entry of rgb.txt. If you specify "none", "None", "transparent" or "Transparent" as the color the refering part will become transparent.
