UPGRADE YOUR VIDEO DRIVERS
No matter what version of Windows you are using it is recommended that you
make sure you are using the latest drivers for your video card. If you have
any problems (slow, jerky, crashing, freezing) they can almost always be fixed
by simply replacing your outdated drivers.
The latest drivers for your card are available from the manufacturers website.
They are always working on upgrading the drivers, so make sure you upgrade
Some common manufacturers websites are:
To get to the settings screen go to Display options in Control Panel and
in the Screen Saver section click on Settings. This brings up the UC3D settings
screen where you can set the countdown and display settings. To get to the
settings for this screen saver select it in the Installed Modules list and
click the button.
The following configuration options are available. (It is recommended that
you play with the options to find what runs best on your PC and what you think
Display Countdown To St.Pat's Day: With this enabled a countdown to March 17th of the current year will be displayed.
Play Background Music: Turns on background music. There are
over 100 different Irish tunes to help drive your co-workers insane. If
you have problems getting the music to play, try installing DirectX8 or higher.
You can get it from http://www.microsoft.com/directx
Background Music: If you like a specific Irish song you can select
it here and only that piece of music will play. Selecting Random means random selections
from the included tunes will play.
Number of Leprechauns: (REGISTERED VERSION ONLY) Here you can set how many Leprechauns you want to walk around at a time. PLEASE NOTE: Having more than one Leprechaun requires a very powerful PC to run smoothly..
No Offensive Behaviour: If you don't want the Leprechaun to vomit or urinate on your desktop, turn this on.
Use Desktop As Background: With this tuned on the Leprechaun will walk across
whatever is currently on your screen, which it turned off he will walk across a screen that is
the colour you have selected. PLEASE NOTE: The screensaver is designed to have this
option turned on, however results may vary depending on your PC's configuration. If you have
a crappy video card, it may not be able to handle the resolution you are using so the desktop
image may be blurred or just look crappy in general. If you are using an OLD operating system
such as 95/98/ME you may also have problems. All I can suggest is to try it and see. If you don't
like how it looks, turn it off.
Background Colour: Click in the coloured box to select the colour who want
the screen to be when you have the above option turned off.
Display Liquid Splashes: With this turned on some of the objects the Leprechaun tries
to balance will spill and stain your screen.
Splash Drying Speed: If you have splashes turned on this lets you set how long they stay on the screen.
USELESS RELEASE NOTES
I started getting heaps of requests for a St Patrick's Day screensaver last
week, but it was almost too late to do one. I decided to try anyway and, as
you can see by the release date, I only just made it.
Basically this displays a Leprechaun wandering around being drunk. The main
thing I could think of to do with St Patrick's Day was Leprechauns and green
vomit, so that's where the idea came from.
I hope this thing isn't offensive in anyway. I love Ireland, and want to
go back there one day. Altho I hope the Leprechauns are a little better behaved
I didn't get to include everything I wanted to because I ran out of time,
maybe I'll update it before next years! I did include as many Irish tunes
as I could find to be background music. There's about 110!
This is a shareware release so if you like it, help me pay my bills and keep
the website running by registering. It's only US$9.95!! The full version gets
rid of all the annoying logos n stuff, and lets you have more than one Leprechaun
on the screen at a time.
