RELEASE NOTES (v1.5):
Just a quick-ish update. Everyone seemed to love this screensaver, but
as usual some people devoted hours of their life finding something about
this piece of nifty free software to complain about: no sound.
So I've finally gotten round to adding sound. Now there should be
nothing left to complain about. Altho I'm sure you'll find something.
I've used the same music files and sound effects as I used in the old
Doctor Who screensaver. I figured it'd be nice to have a link between
them. That and I couldn't be bothered looking for new ones.
For sound to work you need to have DirectX 8 or higher installed.
If you need DirectX go to: http://www.microsoft.com/directx
(Please Note: As far as I know there is no version of DirectX for
WindowsNT that supports DirectAudio, so sound will not work under NT)
RELEASE NOTES (v1.0):
I don't remember if its 4 or 5 years since I released my first
Doctor Who screensaver. Over that time it's been pretty popular and I've
had a huge amount of email asking for updates. Well the wait is over.
This is not an update of the old screensaver, and its not an update of
the TARDIS 3D screensaver from last year. It's a whole new one.
I no longer have the compiler I used to do the original Doctor Who
screensaver, so I haven't been able to update it. Besides that it was
pretty badly written and messy as so I really wanted to start over.
I had this idea ages ago, and I did part of it straight away. I've been
using the all new vortex bit as my screensaver for months but I didn't
think it was enough to release by itself. So I recently had a blast of
inspiration and I've finished it to a point I think is worth releasing.
There are no Doctors in this one. It's more about my other favourite
"character", the TARDIS.
There are 3 parts to it:
The TARDIS on a planets surface.
It then takes off and travels thru the vortex.
While its traveling you randomly get taken inside the console room where
you'll find K-9 roaming around. All in glorious 3D!
Hope all you patient Doctor Who fans who have been waiting for this
enjoy it as much as I do, and I hope all the rest of you do to.
As usual if you like/hate/choke on this thing drop me an email.
PS. I can't add any Doctors to this because I can't do a 3D Doctor. If
you happen to be, or you know, a REALLY GOOD Sim skinner/mesher and
you'd like to do a skin/mesh of the Doctor in "The Sims" format and
wouldn't mind seeing it in this screensaver then drop me a line.
(I stress that I'd want it to look REALLY good. There's a lot of crap
