This group of pages has my contributions to the Internet community.
From the Lurker' Guide:
A B5 screen saver by Sound Source is available for Windows. It can be ordered directly from Sound Source; call 800-877-4778 (US) or +1-805-494-9996. Cost is US$29.95 plus $4.75 shipping for domestic orders.
But what if you have a Macintosh?
Well, I have one and I have SoftWindows for it, so I called Sound source and asked. The person there said that it would run fine, but sound would not be available.
The person was partly right: sound was not available but neither were the movies. (:-(
I have a 50 MHz 68040 Macintosh. It took about four hours to install and Windows runs fairly slowly. I figured that there had to be a better way. So, I poked around while figuring out the interface. I noticed that the images were stored as .BMF files.
Most Mac users are way ahead of me at this point. It turns out, you can access all of the content directly from the Mac:
So, I use the following programs:
It would probably help if those of you who have Macintoshes told Sound Source that you had one, and that you would like a native Macintosh version...
[*] Not all movies converted properly. If someone ever does a better AVI to QuickTime converter, I assume that they will convert.
Second Nature offers free Macintosh and Windows screen saver software. It requires JPEG files, but GraphicConverter can create those.
You can use Decor to take a PICT, JPEG, or GIF and make it into wallpaper.
The mentioned programs are available from any INFO-Mac archive.
HyperArchive is a general Macintosh archive index site.
