sets how many polygons make up the characters. The higher its set the
better he looks but the slower it'll run.
The Size option lets
you set how big they'll be on the screen. Bigger is slower cos um..
If you've got the
PC power stick both options all the way up.
The Sound check box
lets you turn sound on and off. Obviously.
The Delay between
characters lets you select whether its a short or long pause between
changes. Note that if ya set it too short you might miss stuff.
* RELEASE NOTES
This is basically
a bugfix version because its already been 4 months since the very buggy
version 1.0 was released (well it wasnt that buggy but it had some annoying
Main bug was the
one where if you had sound turned off Kenny would still scream when
he died. This was an accident but I absolutely pissed myself when I
started getting emails about it!
I've had nothing
but positive responses to this screen saver. I'm glad so many people
like it. It was featured on the front of www.download.com for over a
week, and as a result it was downloaded about 100,000 times in that
Anyway if the positive
response continues I'll finish off adding some more characters for v2.0
of this beast.
PS. I'd like to apologise
to all those people who downloaded the butchered version of this. Some
ficticious version 1.3??? It included some lotto scam and buggered with
your homepage settings. THIS WAS NOT DONE BY ME!!! I put a stop to it
as soon as I could. I spoke to download.com and they assure me it'll
never be allowed to happen again. Lets hope.
* RELEASE NOTES:
Well about 5 months
ago to the day I released The Eric Cartman 3D Extravaganza! and I'm
happy to say it was quite popular.
After it was listed
on the front of www.download.com it went kinda sick and by last count
has been downloaded afew hundred thousand times!!
Well... I was impressed.
Best of all I had
a record amount of emails that simply read:
Then I had a shitload
of emails saying:
Then I had afew complaints
from people who had trouble running it. (Some were quite abusive. It
was cool! Altho.. complaining about free stuff doesnt quite make sense
to me...) Turns out some people were running wierd ass video cards that
didn't like it and bits of Cartman were see through or something. I
never saw it myself but I had enough complaints to get me worried.
So I started it again
from scratch using VC++5 instead of BCB4, sent a copy to the complainants
and got positive responses. Which was sweeet.
So I did Kenny and
made him die brutally. Then thought, "I've done this much I may aswell
finish it off."
So I added Kyle and
And here it is just
in time for Christmas!
It uses Microsoft's
implementation of OpenGL which comes with all versions of Win95/98/NT
except for Windows95a (I think), so pretty much everyone should already
have it. But if you need it you can get it here:
You'll know if you
need it cos you'll get some kind of DLL error. Something like GLU32.DLL
or OPENGL32.DLL is missing.
Hope you all enjoy
If ya do, email me!
If ya don't.. well
then I'll kick you right in the nuts!!
But you can still email me if you want.
If ya spot any creepy
crawlies let me know. I got kind of confused when I was debugging and
I'm kinda paranoid that I forgot to turn something back off/on...
As with everything
else I've done (visit the website for more) if I get a good response
I'll try and add more. But we'll have to wait and see. (I'm sick of
the sight of Cartman's fat ass.)
Merry Xmas n all that.
And I hope you all get to see this before the Y2K thingy destroys the
world. I'll see you all in the queue to loot the TV store early in the
PS. Cartman's now
even noisier. So crank up the volume and annoy your co-workers!
