|Warning! According to feedback, this edition of the app is potentially quite dangerous for people with a history of epilepsy. Whilst mal-effects haven't been reported, please take care. Extra caution and common sense, people!|
WiiStrobe source has been released!
Hold a disco in your living room! This adjustable strobe-light app will turn your Wii and TV into a seriously cool strobe light!
Now with version 0.0.2, the strobe has been tweaked to get that extra bit of speed, and there's a new police siren mode (red and blue)!
Obviously, the strobe won't work beyond about 60Hz because of the Wii and your TV's refresh rate. If you set the strobe to go faster than this, all you will see is a black-white blur.
Some people have medical conditions (such as epilepsy) which can be triggered by flashing lights. Please please please do not use this if you know yourself to be suffering from such a condition or are unsure. Please also check with anyone else in the room with you. I cannot be held responsible.
Whilst I doubt this would cause any screen burn on TV sets prone to such deterioration, I am uneducated upon the subject and would appreciate the input of someone who is better informed than I am.
This program appears to do essentially the same thing as Stuck Pixel Fixer for GBA, and it may actually unstick some stuck pixels on LCD TVs .
No, this app will not cause screen burn-in of any kind. As a matter of fact, since the display is totally uniform, this is probably the LEAST threatening image you could ever display on a CRT as far as burn-in threats go. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Romanczuk (talk • contribs) 17:14, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
