Great idea, but the

Great idea, but the implementation might need some work

http://img339.imageshack.us/my.php?image=11302007204637au3.png

When I started it it was a black dot in the center of the screen with random lines flashing that you could see the image through. After moving it around for a bit (leaving these nifty logos behind) the button became visible. However if you click the button while it is inside the area the menu will pop up in it makes the button go black again. Also "always on top" might not be the best state for the button.

It does open PAM.

Again, cool idea! Now make it work Blum

EDIT: OK after further testing, the button itself doesn't actually display the image until you touch the edge of the screen with it. Any edge.

Still getting the same

Still getting the same effect, unless I tell it not to be on top. It then shows the white corners on the button, but it doesn't leave the trails. If it is behind the menu when it opens, it flashes through. It also leaves a button on the taskbar.

Oh and allow me to introduce you to Sputnik, that's the skin suite. It was actually what got me into doing skin ports. The setup shown there is actually all WinSTEP http://www.winstep.net/ , I'm testing out the 30 day trial. I already own Object Desktop http://www.stardock.com/products/odnt/ which is great.

Couple of things

1. Is there any FOSS (Free/Open Source) compilers that can compile .gmk files? Because having to buy a commercial product to compile an open source software kinda defeats the purpose of open source.

2. I can't get this to work it keeps giving me an error that geekmenu cannot be executed. Your software's exe is at the root of my drive. Any help would be appreciated...

You don't have to buy game maker to use it.

I meant that game maker's free version works quite well (or does this use dlls or something).

Now we are getting

Now we are getting somewhere. No more trails.
If you tell it to not be on top the white square appears, and doesn't go away even if you set back to on top. If it is behind PAM it flashes through (might not be anything you can do about that)
As long as you leave it on top when it first runs it works perfectly.
Can you make it remember position, or does it have to start in the center of the screen?
Would it be possible to have it use an image in the same directory as the button? We could then skin it to match the menu skin.

Not out of line ... IF

Do you have permission to redistribute Game Maker Pro? It looks like they want people to register (at least) before downloading, so distributing without registration or specific permission may get you into trouble.

By the way, the file I got when I downloaded didn't seem to be complete; it made a "file not found" popup.

Well

Since I got this to work, and that MISIIM mentioned a free version of GameMaker (so one can compile the source of this w/o paying) I would love to include this and Ninja Command into my suites...

In addition could you make it so the button could also collapse the menu.

Also the button does not work when a maximized window is present...

And I need to know what license the button and Ninja Command is released under...

OK then...

In order to promote here your software has to be released under an OSI approved license, like GPL, and so far I am convinced your software does not meet that criteria...

your app doesn't have to be

your app doesn't have to be approved, nor does your request, simply include a .txt file that contains the context of the GNU General Public License (GPL). Then your app is under an OSI approved license.

The button I have works fine

The button I have works fine with maximized windows open. I still wish the alpha transparency worked when not "on top" but I guess we can design square buttons.

How would the positioning work? Would it be an x,y positioning thing? I was thinking if you had a position set and then plugged in to a smaller monitor it might appear off screen.

Would it be possible have an option to hide the taskbar button?

What is the pama.bmp used for? Is it the alpha mask for the button animation? Why does it get created in the folder but the main animation image is not?

Do I ask enough questions?

Taskbar button is still

Taskbar button is still there.
It remembers position.

You took out the not on top option?

EjectScript 0.4 does not kill start button. I have to manually exit before I can eject the drive.

I think it would be really

I think it would be really easy to do something similar to this app in AutoHotKey.
I have some Vista-ish PA icons incuding an orb start button and will probably come up with someting later today.

I use Cylog Toolbox to accomplish the same

It's freeware, and it really is portable out of the box - I haven't seen any reg or user folder entries generated.
http://www.cylog.org/utils_4.asp

Toolbox can be configured to be the size of one icon, or as big as a whole desktop.
It uses relative paths by default.

I've set it up as a single icon linked to the StartPortableApps exe file, and I can place it anywhere.

I've also used it to do a full desktop replacement as in this post:

I made this half-pony, half-monkey monster to please you.
