Hi all, just got DBPro and it's cool! I noticed you can save executables out as type .scr (screen saver). Is there a way to make a settings screen for the screen saver, so you can configure it, like you can with the Microsoft ones?
Do you need some other tool to do this? I'd really like to make a 3D screen saver...Thanks for any help.

umm you would need to code it at the start like

input "Would You Like Stars/Text/Objects";awnser$

if awnser$="Stars" then gosub stars_init
`etc

input "How Many Stars";ammount$
make stars ammount$ : `this aint a command just pesudo code
etc

it could work like that

I think he means a settings screen that opens a standard GDI window like the MS ones that let you set the text on the scroller or the number of stars on the starfield routine. The simple answer though is no - not yet, sorry.

You could, but if you're going that far you might as well make the whole screen saver in it
