The bat follows the cursor around the screen, just right for Halloween. If the user has JS disabled then Fred will not work and is hidden from view.

Supported Styles:
  • Prosilver
  • The code is run every 120 microseconds and may cause problems with low CPU and low memory devices.
  • There are 3 other images in the .zip file below that you can use instead of Fred. To use one of them, unzip the package, then unzip the image you require. You will then have a folder called theme on your desktop. Disable the extension, and replace the hifikabin/fredthebat/styles/all/theme folder with the one you have just unzipped. Enable the extension and refresh your browser.
  • Why Fred? I had him on a phpBB 2 forum many years ago and someone called him Fred. The name has stuck
  • To use your own image, save it to root/ext/hifikabin/fredthebat/styles/all/theme/images and edit root/ext/hifikabin/fredthebat/styles/all/theme/fredthebat.css changing cursor_fred.gif to your new images name and adjust the height and width as needed.
  • Download the latest release and unzip it.
  • Upload the folder hifikabin to root/ext/ and enable it in the ACP
