Pirate fish as screensaver

Found a stunning new portrayal of His Noodly Majesty? New art, adapted art, links to do-it-yourself art? Realistic, conceptual, whatever? Post it here.

Pirate fish as screensaver

Postby Bun Ga Nuong » Tue Apr 11, 2006 4:58 pm

I dont know if this has been brought up before, it seems obvious to me, but. . .

make a small white-on-black image of the pirate fish (obviously just copy the pirate fish wallpaper, but perhaps copy and paste it BEFORE opening up the wallpaper, so it will be a small image you copied), and make sure the background of your screen is black. . .
. . .(windows users) go into your control panel, under display/screensaver, use the "3d flying objects" / "settings" and "textured flag", make the texture the pirate fish image.

THEN when your screensaver kicks in, you will have the pirate fish swimming across your screen.

please forgive me if this has been brought up before, although i have been a convert from day one (ever sisnce that first pencil drawing), i havent been on the message board until now.

(OH, and you MAY need to reverse the pirate fish so it doesn't look like he/she is swimming backwards).

someone made a screen saver in the past, I currently have it on my laptop:

it is the 'fish flash animation'
down load it and then it is something really obvious like:
set as screen saver

I'm trying to figure out a way to make that one Mac-compatible. In a way that doesn't involve expiring demos. Or spending money.

Flash is not a free down load for the Mac?

Oh, the flash is there, all right, but making a screensaver out of it is tough.

The other thing too, the larger the image the more realistic it looks. The small fish moves to fast

hmmm. . . cant you control the speed of the screensaver under "controls"?. . .

well, anyway, i like how it looks with the small fish,

i made a stencil of the pirate fish too, gotta post a pic of that at some point, probably put it up on Flickr first though.
