I would like to create a theme that cycles through a few different backgrounds each time the PS3 is turned on but I would also like to display a specific image on certain days of the year.

So for instance I have already made a static theme with four backgrounds which are randomly selected each time the PS3 powers on, I would like to alter this to show a Christmas themed image only on 25th December each year though.

Is it possible to do this? I've had a play around with various options in the XML file but haven't had any luck, any help would be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks,

Staten Island, NY

It is possible, but you have to know how to code in psjs script. I'm not particularly great at creating scripts. I've had a few ideas myself and tried altering GlowBall's script with little success. I would have to make a script from scratch, but I just don't have the time. You can download GlowBall's updated files from here - - There are pdfs in there that explain the scripting process. Very informative stuff that may help you.
