I'm trying to fit learning DB around my uni course so sorry if the answer is very obvious.
I know DBPro can make screensavers and heard that this was by saving exe's as .scr.
How do I do this. I wanna make my own screensaver coz the windows ones are no to my taste

I would think its probably just a matter of changing the EXE Filename section, so that instead of a filename ending in .exe, its .scr

Yes, I really am THAT good...

1) Make exe
2) Open dos-promt
3) Goto directory
4) Write "rename myexe.exe myexe.scr"

OR if you have file extensions enabled in windows, simple rename it with .scr extension.

The evil plan is now even closer!
