- the rss screen saver for windows

  Long time, no see...
This has been a very busy summer. No excuses, but my free time to devote to all my pet projects has been very limited. That said, I do have an update to rsssaver in the works.

I've been playing with the shift/alt/crtl keys as modifiers for the animation and as input for the saver. If you notice while rsssaver is running pressing a shift key does not cause it to end.

I was thinking that left shift would cause the current news item to lock into a readable space in the screen center, the right shift would "hurry" to the next item, and the ctrl key would go to the next feed. The alt key would bring up an "about" screen and help. This all needs to be tested, but I'm pretty sure it will work.

I've also experimented with randomization of news items, two monitor support, some additional preset feeds, color presets, and a few other tricks.

Cross your fingers!
Your Screensaver is the best thing on the web....

But it doesn't support å, ä and ö. We use these letters in some countries in europe.

That is already working in my curent development version. I squeezed in many of the accented and umlauted characters as I could.

If anyone wants to test this version send an email to wilson at no2games dot com, because I wouldn't what to look for :)
Just downloaded this screensaver and its great! Is it possible to make the scrolling(?) faster and is it possible to select a news story to show in the browser? Also an option to show all the headlines at once for a feed would be cool too.
