@Krikor
So I looked into a little further.
Turns out in GIMP 2.8, hurling random pixels on a transparent layer produced some random colors.
However in GIMP 2.10, hurling random pixels on a transparent layer produced nothing all transparent so there's no "snow" to work with.
So what I did was instead of FILL-TRANSPARENT i made it FILL-WHITE.
Then after it did the hurling. I color-to-alpha the result so that it's similar to what it did in GIMP 2.8.
Here's a test result produced in 2.10.6

Hi Tim,
I used the script you changed, but the errors keep appearing on the screen.
It was to create 15 new layers of snow, but only two.
The result looks more like a flashing than a snow effect.

Interesting that for Tom it worked.

I tried to use Constantize, but it did not change anything. He kept giving the same results.

Since I can't reproduce this error, I would suggest you upgrading to 2.10.6

ok, I have both, 2.10.1 and 2.10.6 (portable Samj).
But I use 2.10.1 because it seems more stable.

I will test in version 2.10.6.
Thanks Tim

I will definitely have to say goodbye to my beloved version 2.10.1 :fb_sad:

Script ran without errors and with 15 layers as expected, using version 2.10.6. :gimp_clap:

Long live to the king!

Thank you Tim! :thank_you:

Hi! I tried this updated script but it only makes small pixel snow and looks nothing like the original script. Also using it has made an extremely shaky final product for me. Is there any way to fix the original script so that it runs more like the original script did with various sizes and transparencies of snow? If not I think it's probably best that I downgrade to 2.8 and give up on 2.10 (as I've had a lot more problems than just this one - none of my favorite scripts work anymore and the original creator Fence-post seems to have dropped off the world in 2016.) - I am currently using 2.10.10 btw if that helps at all. But yeah I can't get any of those gorgeous flakes like the original script gave to 2.8, I can only manage to get 1 size pixels no matter what I do (unless I individually scale each layer after it's been produced). I really miss having this effect and I used to use it a lot to add a layer or two of snow fall (both animated and unanimated) to wintery pictures but now without it I had only found "How to make Snow Fall" tutorials that don't seem to work in 2.10.10 at all (like they just make the picture grainy, I never get the results they show in the tutorials). I've included the 'shaky' bit I mentioned. Though I can see it's been about a year + since this was responded to but it's the only place I've even found a half-fixed version of the script.

It's has to do with new hurling operations, they're not the same as the old version I guess.
This script depends a lot of GIMP's random hurling operations and I have no idea how to produce identical results as the old version.
Why not install new GIMP and old GIMP and just use the old GIMP for this?

Unfortunately my computer can't have BOTH without getting angry (already every time I close gimp, it takes my computer into LOCKED UP hostage mode until it's done shutting down, and it's literally the only program to do this)

In "Featuring Members' Works (Image Attachments)" I saw an image about this script and decided to give it a review.

Curiosity I ran the script on Gimp 2.10.12 and got the same errors I got with version 2.10.01 :-(

I no longer have version 2.10.06 (where the script worked fine), so I tested the script on version 2.10.11 and it worked without problems.

It makes no sense with each update that the scripts are compatible and then not, and then back to compatible. This is very boring.
No wonder many users still persist in using version 2.8. :|
