GYRODROME Screensaver 1.00
This is conceptually simple but beautiful and modern screensaver which gives many hours of interesting and fascinating animation.
The corner stone of the Gyrodrome Screensaver animation are few rings rotating around all the three world axis as relatively to world as relatively to each other. These rings are located one inside other and rotating one relative to another and the outer ring rotates relatively the world.
Another mobile element of virtual world on your screen is a camera. This camera is a permanently looking to the rings observation point. It can fly around the rings along three directions – two of them are angles around the rings and third one is camera's own axis pointed towards to center of the animated world.
There are some light sources randomly distributed around the rings. These lights might be of various random colors and brightness. These lights create attractive highlights of all colors and gradations.
The last visible thing is background. It might be a simple color or, what is more interesting, a bitmap image in a form of spherical panorama. Five panorama images in normal and low resolution have been included into the screensaver distribution package. You can download high resolution package with these panoramas and other ones from Gyrodrome Screensaver download page. And, of course, you can choose your own image as background. The Gyrodrome Screensaver supports images in BMP or JPEG formats. Supported sizes are 512x512, 1024x1024 and 2048x2048 pixels.
Another nice feature makes the Gyrodrome Screensaver not only pretty screen saving utility. This is "on-screen-message" feature which allow you to leave a text message on your screen when you are away from your computer. It is not visible normally, but if someone will move your mouse or touch your keyboard while screensaver is running, it will display your message instead of simply closing. Moreover, you may specify a time for which you plan to leave and create several shortcuts for quick starting the screensaver in different situations.
As a sample of modern screensaver, the Gyrodrome Screensaver fully supports multimonitor computer configurations. This means that, if your PC has more than one monitor connected, the Gyrodrome Screensaver is capable of displaying its animation on all your displays. You can set resolution and color depth for each of your displays, specify which of them must be blanked during screensaver operation, and whenever it display one model on all active monitors or make different simulations – one model per one display.
The Gyrodrome Screensaver has many settings and options which will allow you to tune parameters of animation. If your PC is not powerful enough and animation is jerky, configuration changes will be required too. But default settings will provide a picture of high quality.
To open settings window, go to the "Display" applet on the Windows control panel. There, switch to "Screensaver" tab and choose the "Gyrodrome" from a list of the screensavers installed on your system. Press the "Settings..." button and Gyrodrome Screensaver settings window will open.
