Creating a screen saver

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I was just wondering if anyone could point me to a good tutorial or something about making screen savers. Something with some sample code would be good. And preferably no DX or OGL. Thanks for your help.

All you do to make a screen saver, is write a regular program, make sure it automatically closes on keypresses/mousemove, change the extension .scr and i think there was one more thing.... I believe make your Appname "SCREENSAVER:Appname" instead of Appname or something like that... It''s a been a while since I last did it...

There will be an extra command line entry windows will send , "/c" and "/s" are the two possibilities I think.... One to pop open the configuration box, the other to run the screensaver.

Some of this could (probably is) a little off, and I''ve only tried it with VB so I don''t know for sure on somethings...
