I would appreciate any info on making screen savers in VC using OpenGL. And that''''s the end of that chapter!

Get DemoGL (url below). Code your effects using normal OpenGL in CEffect derived classes and add a few lines of code to make it run as a win32 screensaver. (see documentation). An example screensaver (example 5) is available to get you started.

If you want to do everything yourself (ok, some people want that ) you can also look at this page: http://www.wischik.com/scr/howtoscr.html

It''s the best screensaver knowledge page I know of, allthough it still takes quite some challenge to make OpenGL based screensavers work.
