Introduction
************

Merry christmas everybody!

Have you ever thought that your workbench is SO boring?:)
Have you always wanted to add that extra piece of christmas spirit
to your wb? Then this is something for you!

Requirements
************

AmigaOS 3.1 / MorphOS
MC68020+ or compatible
CybergrapX3+
Fastmem!
15bit+ screenmode.

Changes from last version (0.2)
*******************************

* Now also FullWB compatible. That means the backdrop is found even
  if the screen titlebar is disabled.

Usage
*****

---------------------------
TASKPRI=<number> (-128-127)
---------------------------
This sets the taskpri of XMasBench... We recommend that you
set this below 0, so that it doesnt take time from other tasks.

---------
DWAITBOVP
---------
This argument disables WaitBOVP(). WaitBOVP() is the function that waits
for the videobeam, so that everything is updated every frame. Setting
this argument forces the snow, lights and tree to be updated more
often, if possible. (Slows everything else down)

--------------------------
INITDELAY=<number> (0-120)
--------------------------
With this argument you can set a delay. If you for example set the
delay to INITDELAY=5, XMasBench will wait 5 seconds before starting
to execute itself. This can be useful is XMasBench is started in the
Startup-sequence/User-startup.

-------------------
LAYER1=<0xAARRGGBB>
LAYER2=<0xAARRGGBB>
LAYER3=<0xAARRGGBB>
LAYER4=<0xAARRGGBB>
LAYER5=<0xAARRGGBB>
-------------------
AA = Alpha channel (00-FF)
RR = Red value (00-FF)
GG = Green Value (00-FF)
BB = Blue Value (00-FF)
So writing for example: LAYER1=0x00FF0000, gives us red snowflakes
in layer1, with alphachannel turned off!

-----------------------------------
SNOWFLAKES=<number> (0-ScreenWidth)
-----------------------------------
Sets the maximum number of nowflakes on screen. (Maximum number of
snwflakes is the same as the width of your screen).
SNOWFLAKES=100 gives us a max of 100 snowflakes on screen ;).
To disable the snow totally, set max snowflakes to SNOWFLAKES=0.

---------------------------
SNOWCHANCE=<number> (0-100)
---------------------------
The chance of new snow appearing on screen, this is usefull if
you want snowflakes to appear slowly.. instead of having 200
snowflakes that suddenly pop up. Setting the chance to SNOWCHANCE=100
gives us a 100% chance of new snow appearing, this means that new snow
will appear every frame untill SNOWFLAKES is reached.
You can disable snow with this argument also, just by setting
the chance to SNOWCHANCE=0.

------------------------
SNOWSPEED=<number> (1-3)
------------------------
This sets the speed of our snowflakes. Nothing more to say, really.

--------------------------
FLASHSPEED=<number> (1-10)
--------------------------
This sets the flashspeed of the christmaslights, the higher it is
the slower it gets ;).

----------------------------
LIGHTA_ADD=<number) (-30-30)
----------------------------
Add alphachannelvalue to the christmaslights. The higher the value
is, the more the lights glow.

--------------------------
LIGHTSPACE=<number> (0-64)
--------------------------
Alter the space between the lights, the default value is 0.

---------
RNDLIGHTC
---------
If this argument is set, the lightcolours of the lights are
randomized.. instead of having a fixed value.

------------------------------------
CWINDOWL (Close left light window)
CWINDOWR (Close left right window)
CWINDOWT (Close top light window)
CWINDOWB (Close bottom light Window)
------------------------------------
With theese arguments you can close a specific chritsmaslight window.
To disable christmaslights, just specify all the CWINDOWx arguments.

--------
CHOPTREE
--------
If this argument is specified, the Christmastree that is centered on
the wb by default, is disabled.

--------------------------
TREEA_ADD=<number> (-30-30)
--------------------------
Add alphachannelvalue to the christmastree. The higher the value
is, the more the christmasstar glows!

----------------------------
TREELA_ADD=<number> (-30-30)
----------------------------
Add alphachannelvalue to the christmastree twinklethings ;).
(Thoose tiny twinkles that appear on the christmastree.) The higher
the value is, the more the twinkles glow!
