Introduction


Screen Melter is a collection of four simple screen savers. It is slightly different from the traditional screen savers in some respects, e.g. it does not take up a lot of disk space or memory, it does not have very fast animations but it generates new patterns every time it is invoked. So, basically it gives you a change without taxing your system too much.

Screen Melter runs only on 32 bit windows, e.g. Windows 95 and NT.

Now after all said and done, Go get the screen saver.


Installation


All you do is run the downloaded executable and unzip the component files into a temp directory. Then copy the screen saver executable ScrnMelt.scr into your SystemRoot directory (which is normally C:\Windows or C:\WinNT) and the accompanying HTML (this file) somewhere for later perusal. This completes the installation. Next time you try to configure your screen saver, you should see Screen Melter in the list of available screen savers.


Using Screen Melter


In the screen saver settings dialog choose Screen Melter as your screen saver. Then click the Settings button. This will popup another dialog in which you can choose the screen saver pattern you prefer. Following is a list of patterns available in Screen Melter.

Melt the screen This option will generate a pattern which has the appearence of melting the display area of your screen
Push the screen away This will result in your screen getting pushed towards right and finally out of display
Scramble the screen This option will scramble the display in a random order
Worm This option simulates the random movements of a worm. The wholes dug by the worm will have random colors and the worm moves very fast !!


Bugs, issues, etc.


Once the screen has melted down completely or been pushed away, it never returns. I will really appreciate if someone can kindly make it return.
