AutoIt Screensaver!

Recommended Posts

Dale2507

Was looking through available downloads for AutoIt and noticed that there are no screensavers so i thought i'd make 1.

First of all this isn't made in AutoIt it's made in DarkBasic Proffesional and if anyone want the source i shall publish it at some point in the near future. just right click and and click install to add it to your desktop properties. I found out how to limit it to the preview window however it does go to full screen to begin with untill it figures out what to do.

Any key should close it apart from the arrow keys which can be used to control the spinning of the sphere in the middle.

AutoIt Screensaver

Things to do:

- make it look better

- add different objects

- add a config page

Comments are welcome

So... you wrote a screen-saver without actually reading any of the documentation on MSDN about writing screen-savers? Otherwise you would know how to write it properly so that it would work in the preview screen.

Meow! :mellow:

To be fair although I know there is a preview switch I just spent 5 mins trying to find the MSDN page on it on LiveSearch (not allowed to use Google :( ) and I pretty much failed so I'm going to let it go... :)

You just have to know what to search for

:mellow:

Edit: I do realize my screen saver doesn't work in the preview window as well, but that was not a priority when writing the screen saver.

oooh i quite like that. if u search on forum there's some functions that someone's put 2gether to put it into preview window and add a config page.

Edit: the functions can also add dual screen functionality btw

I think you should raise the poly-count of the sphere by a lot. :mellow:

Why not do purely on autoit?

Ok, DBPro is very easy, but I was thinking:

If I want to make an AutoIt screensaver, I'll try to demonstrate the language capabilities. (my opinion)

I'm trying to say: What do you think if Microsoft uses the OS X to develop their products?

Withdraw what I said, good ideas are welcome regardless of the used platform.

Microsoft Developers use XP, they find Vista too buggy.
