ScreenSaver
Version: 1.0

ScreenSaver - by Xinhuan
26 July 2008
For WoW 2.4.3.8606

This is a minimal screensaver for World of Warcraft that activates
itself (inside WoW) after 5 minutes of "idle time". "Idle time" is
currently determined by mouse movement, not keypresses. The
screensaver draws some polygons on a black background much like the
"Mystify" screensaver in Windows.

There are no configurable options in game. However, you may edit the
source code contained in ScreenSaver.lua for your preferred settings.
At the top of the file, there are a few variables:


-- Local constants
local MAXSPEED = 3 -- speed at which the polygons move
local IDLETIME = 300 -- number of seconds before screensaver activates
local NUMLINES = 6 -- number of lines to draw per polygon
local NUMSIDES = 4 -- number of sides the polygon has
local LINEGAP = 3 -- pixel gap between lines
local MAXCOLORSPEED = 3 -- speed at which the color changes


Changing the numbers, saving the file, and reloading your UI is
sufficient for the changes to take effect.

This is one of the most creative things I've seen in a long time.

Good job, I'll be using this.

You know, I totally considered writing a flying toaster screen saver addon a few years ago, but was stymied by the lack of easily available flying toaster graphics at the time =(

Thumbs up On the subject of flying toasters...

I approve of every picture of flying toasters available on the interwebz.
I definitely think there should be a wow screensaver of flying toasters. Possibly with clipits of The Flying Toasters music? Not sure how far beyond copyright infringement that would go, but an idea is an idea.

=] I'll definitely be using this.
