Whose cat is that?!!!

- If you have ArtRage 2 full edition which features using multiple layers.
- Try to start a new painting of two layers.
- Then try to move the upper layer to be the lower one.
- Repeat this as many times as it could take you .

If you are lucky, after 4 – 6 moves or maybe less you will discover a secret brown cat,
but remember not to release the left button of the mouse, or your cat will disappear.

The question, now, is that:
- How could she or he get there.
- Was it forgotten by someone of those who assembled the software
- Who sentenced that cat an ArtRage life imprisonment.
- Is there any relationship between the attached cat and the linked one –

Willing to hear facetious comments from all of you.

Oh, btw, This revelation was made, firstly, by my kids who told me later.

Best Regards.

Erm.. that's Tycho. Ambient Design's fierce furry feline protector. And yes, it's the same cat. Weeks painted Tycho's portrait, as did a number of other ArtRagers (http://www2.ambientdesign.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=166).

Hi DM,

Yep, he's hiding here too!

I think it's the presence of the mouse that brings him out!

Thank you so much, Gita.
Your contribution was of a great value.
In my opinion, if Ambient Design wanted to make a backup of the forum, there won’t be a better place than your magnificent memory to store it.




Bingo, Aged P.

That is very funny.
So, take care Jerry, Tycho is in the neighborhood.
Thank you Aged P.

I had a lot of fun testing this little easter egg =)

He appears randomly but fairly uncommonly. That picture is taken from a photo of him biting Andy's thumb and looking very pleased with himself.

He can also be seen attacking the corner of the About box from time to time ( Help --> About ArtRage 2 )

Dave,

When trying to reproduce this, on 2 of about 6 successful attempts, I managed to crash Vista while displaying the cat. When it crashed the first time, I tried reproducing it a couple of times.

I know, Vista is a beta, but I thought you might be interested. I was using the latest build -- the one after the public released beta. I have no problems on my normal setup (XP SP2 - same machine, just dual booted).

Thank you! I love crash bugs =) I'll have a play with that one here. For the moment I've noted it down in my list of creepy-crawlies to check.
