Screensavers - New Screensaver 21/05/03 See 1st Post

58 posts in this topic

Ok, I couldn't be bothered to do a new thread for each screensaver that I do, So I though maybe have this as a central thread for any screensaver that people write or find that work with pocket candy.

The first obvious ones are:

Matrix Screensaver - by motbe

http://smartphone.modaco.com/viewtopic.php...t=61641&start=0

Aquarium Screensaver

http://smartphone.modaco.com/viewtopic.php...t=62461&start=0

Windows Smartphone Screensaver - See attached

8) NEW 8)

Unoffical Modaco Plus Screensaver!!!!

See screenshot and program attached to this message.

This one also requires the gd201.dll file to be placed in the pocketcandy screensaver folder (If it already isn't). If you havn't got this then download the aquarium screensaver.

NB To use these as actual screensavers you need to download PocketCandy for smartphone which can be downloaded from here:

Excellent work motbe for writing this application!!!! Well done!! :)

Download ti from the above link. And when it asks where you want to install it. Choose to install it to your phone, not the strorage card.

You will then be able to run the app and choose the screensaver you want from the top menu.

If you download the registry editor for the smartphone you can change the path it looks for the screensavers so you can them put them on your storage card.

I have got my screensaver set to 5 minutes at the moment. That way it doesn't keep popping up when you stop for a minute to think about something!

Hey, the site's hosted for free. If I sold the software, I could pay for a good host, but for now, free's the word...

And it should be back up at midnight, EST, which is GMT -5. So by 5:00am GMT, it should be back up.

Hehe, that modaco screensavers great! nice and colourful - simple. I think id like it a bit faster though and perhaps a background tune?

Would it be possible to have the backlight set on a timer with this program, so it stays on for the animation and as soon as the animations played once, it dims it again.
