Last update for this year.

Added "whoaaa" sound effect, made some fine tuning and added average fps counter.

 

Btw, sound fx sound best with earphones.

I can barely hear the Applause in my laptop :(

I normalized the sound by -15 db because it should stay in the background. On my laptop without earphones I can hear the applause very well.

Last update for now!

Added some more firework types and a background firework sound for a "better New Year's Eve feeling".

You can find a GDI+ Simple Firework v2 version in the archive whereas new year countdown is enabled only in the executable version. It uses the GDIPlusEx UDF made by Eukalyptus which is faster than the GDI+ functions.

N'joy.

      The _ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd() logic may have an issue in v3.3.14.3.  I was testing scripts using v3.3.14.3 and saw that the scripts' screen captures weren't getting created.  I immediately ran the scripts using v3.3.14.2 and the screen captures were being created as expected. The _ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd() function, in v3.3.14.3, returns @error = -2. 
      Can anyone else confirm that they are seeing the same issue?
      Below is a slightly modified version of the function's help file's _ScreenCapture_CaptureWnd() example that should allow you to recreate the issue.

      Hello ladys and gentlemen,
      I have this piece of code and it does what it's supposed to do.
      I want to use it to create an image sequence with frame/image information for compositing overlay.
      However, when i use a transparent background the text starts to look kinda bold or fat.
      I dont know what causes this ugly effect.
      Is there a way to avoid this effect somehow?
      Thanks!
