I downloaded and successfully installed Oceanis, I am fairly happy with it, except for the fact the minimum switch time is 1 minute (Is it possible to lower it?), and that its shuffle mode is terrible, I have over 2000 photos to choose from and I think in the last 2 hours (with 1 min switch) I have seen 15-20 different photos. Help? Please and thank you!

Which reminds me, what about the EULA, I know this voids the warranty (OR am i wrong....) but is not this technichally illegal, not that I care :P.

Hello Frederick,

Since this is a 3rd party program, there's not a way to change the shuffle time other than what is available in the program that I know of.

Using this program does not violate the Windows 7 EULA.

Thank you for your super quick response, might I ask how does it not violate the EULA, and anything about the terrible shuffle randomization? IS there an official site for it btw?

It doesn't violate the EULA since this is only a program that you are installing and using. It's no different than say installing Stardock WindowBlinds to change the theme in Windows 7.

If it was a hack that tampered with the licensing or distribution of Windows 7, then it would violate the EULA.

To read the exact EULA for you editon of Windows 7, you can read this PDF file from Microsoft.

Unfortunately, Oceanis doesn't have an official website from the publisher. It was allowed to be distributed (hosted) by us and other sites to share with the public instead. The shuffle timing is exactly the same times as if you were using the built-in Desktop Slideshow feature in say Windows 7 Ultimate though.

I understand that, but other programs I tried to install for this (with better shuffles) were immediately blocked by the EULA thingy, and you keep telling me the shuffle times are the same, and I know that, what I am saying is that the random picker is failing, it seems to pick very few photos and repeat them, no matter how many you have. But thank you!
