that''s the simple way. but there IS more to it than that. I''ve never done it but there''s a way to catch when the computer tells the program to display the options and so on. I''m certain there''s tutorials out there though, so do some searches and I''m sure you''ll find something.

I''ve done it and I''ve forgotten (hey, that was ~3 years ago!) There''s an example in the MSDN CD (or should I say "there was"; I last looked up screensavers in version 4.0). In any case, look it up!

A screen saver is an executable. Allegro comes with source code to sample screensaver, and from that its pretty easy to learn how to make a screensaver.
