ScreenSaver Builder Concept
People love screen savers, but they also like to change them. It
is logical, even the best looking screen saver will become boring
over time. So what will users do once your screen saver becomes
old news? They will search for a new one to download and thats might
easily end up being someone else's creation. However, what if you
could change your screen saver or even make a completely new one
and it updates automatically? Wouldn't that be a great thing? Internet
ScreenSaver Builder makes all that possible. You can create a screen
saver that will periodically check its web location for changes
and update automatically if necessary. Read on to get this concept
explained in detail through a little life story of an internet screen
I - Creation
Create initial screen saver. Internet ScreenSaver Builder allows
you to combine images (.BMP, .JPG ), text and multimedia (.WAV,
.AVI , .MP3 ). You can use it through a wizard and/or simple yet
effective command language. There are 73 image transition effects
to play with, command for moving images and text across the screen,
random coordinates, letter-by-letter effect for showing text.
Finalize screen saver project using Make dialog. You will get a
series of files as a result, ready for distribution and upload to
screen saver's web location.
II - Distribution
Distribute screen saver's .SCR file to end users in a usual way;
place it on your web site for download, put it on a CD... Upload
files that were created for the web to screen saver's web location.
III - Execution
Screen saver works on end user's computer. From time to time, according
to the interval you have set in Make dialog, it will try to check
its web location for changes. (new images, changes in scenario,
completely new screen saver...)
If changes are detected screen saver automatically starts downloading
new scenario and/or component files. Of course, it needs an Internet
connection to do the job and it will do it in as many sessions as
necessary. Download takes place during screen saver execution while
end user is looking at the previous version and her computer is
IV - A New Beginning
This is the best part and it happens whenever you want it. Make
changes to your screen saver or even create a completely new one
to replace it. Upload new version files to the original web location.
That is all. Screen saver already existing on end user's computer
takes over from here, detects changes, downloads necessary component
files and restarts automatically as a new version.
