I've been making screensavers by renaming my .exe projectors
to .scr and they (kind of) work when I place them in the
WINDOWS/system32/ folder. The problem though is that whenever i go
to my desktop/screensaver settings it begins to load the saver
immediatly, and I am unsure how to create a control panel which
will appear when the user clicks "settings".
I have seen various 3rd party tools that package the
screensavers and create a control panel, but all seem very old now
and wonder if DMX2004 has any lingo or Xtras for using with
screensavers? I don't need to do anything spectacular, just
something basic that works.
I'm guessing many of you will have lots of experience doing
this sort of thing - thanks for any help you can give.
If you are doing a Windows only screen saver, I would
Saver which you can get from www.mods.com.au. It is by Gary
same guy who brought us BuddyAPI). There are probably other
programs out there, but this one is pretty easy to use and
has all the
features I've needed.
