TIP's
If you like to change the paper only all minutes set TIMER_NORMAL_IN_MILLSEC to 60000 and TIMER to the minutes you like 1 for 1 minute 2 for 2 minutes etc...
(The programm use then very very few time to change the paper. As bigger the TIMER_NORMAL_IN_MILLSEC is as slower will the machine be).
Remark
Don't edit anything in CHPaper.ini except the TIMER_NORMAL_IN_MILLSEC and TIMER_BOSS_IN_MILLSEC
all other options may be modified with CHPAPER.EXE EDExplanation of CHPaper.ini PowerUser

Because I had some performance problems on my network (Novell 386 V3.11) I'll check these entries every time its possible to change it. If you are running it on a stand alone PC you may add POWERUSER=9 to at section [CHPAPER]. If you are Supervisor and install this progrm on you network. Don't give all person level 9. Its dangerous, because the user can add entries very low and than a lot of pictures will be read from the server. Look at the possible levels with the settings.

Explanation of CHPEXT.DLL

If you have it installed start FileManager
under the Menuitem Extensions is CHPaper..., and an Icon should be on the desktop

Copy any Bitmap or RLE file from the FileManager into the Icon. The wallpaper will imadiatly change.
You may also copy multiple Files onto the Icon. With the Timer settings in Section CHPEXT TIMER= will the picture be displayed. If you DoubleClick onto the Icon the picture showed will rest on Screen.
