I found this old screen saver program on my HDD. And rather than waste the code I would like to see it go to a better home.

It is fully working but was never finished. The configuration dialog was never completed but the rest of it is functioning well. I tested it on Win2K and XP and I am curious to know if it works on 95/98/ME.

I have only included the source file in the archive, so you will need to assemble it before you can use it. You need to copy the executable to %SystemRoot%\system32\*.scr for Windows to recognise it in the ControlPanel/Display/ScreenSaver dialog.

Feel free to use this code as a template for your own custom screen saver.

Tried it on both WinME (just to be nice Cool ) and WinXP, but there's a small difference:

Putting it in \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 works fine on XP (shows up as "Moving Time"). This doesn't work on WinME. (Not available as choice.)

Putting it in \WINDOWS\ (not preferred?) or \WINDOWS\SYSTEM (where 99% of other .SCRs live) on WinME lets it show up (and works), but it only says "Time" as description, not "Moving Time". I didn't mess with the config dialog, but it seems to display okay.

Both computers let the time and date (upside down) bounce around (even slightly outside the viewable screen, which I assume is normal). And having a CMD prompt open (black) makes it (naturally) seem to partially "disappear" when hovering over that. But it's really nice, especially for its size (and price, heheh). Wink

Thanks for the feedback rugxulo.

It is normal that the text will exit the sides and top. This was done to test the clipping.

A window with a black background is always going to cause it to "disappear" when it passes over, another option is to simply invert the colours for both the background and foregrounds, but it looks kinda weird and ugly that way.

The config dialog will show up but that is all it does, you can change the values as much as you like and it will have no effect on anything except your patience.

You mentioned the date is upside down, and this is normal at the start (escapement set to 1800) but it should slowly and smoothly rotate as it moves. The same behaviour for the time. Do you see the rotation?

Yes, it looks like it sorta starts to (slowly) rotate.

win98, OK! works well, but is a little too much slow, and config don't works.

all in all, it's very surprising! i love this effect.
