Hey everyone, I have no doubt that this question has been asked countless times before, but does anyone know of any resources on the ''net about how to compile an exe into a screensaver or however you do it. Any help would be great. Thanks, Joel

I use this framework:

I don't know whose framework it originally is since I've seen the (almost?) same framework on multiple sites. But after making a few adjustments ( I use Dev-c++ instead of MSVC) it works fine for me.

And if you just want a very basic screensaver you can just rename your openGL app to *.scr and it works.

To roughly quote a post I saw before:

Making a screensaver is a long and difficult process:

Rename it.

There are other things that you need. Basically, you need to respond differently to different command line options in order to integrate it well. Nobody likes a lazy screensaver.

I like pie.
