CroftSoft Savor is a screensaver demonstrating the early access SaverBeans Screensaver SDK version 0.2. So far I have only deployed it on Windows but since the SaverBeans SDK is Java-based it should be cross-platform. After you have a chance to download and install it, take a peek at the source code.

Savor 2D

The first implementation I created draws colored ovals on the screen. On Windows, download croftsoft_savor2d_setup.exe and double-click to install. After installation, right-click on your desktop and select "Properties" to bring up the "Display Properties" window. Click on the "Screen Saver" tab and change the screensaver on the pulldown menu to "croftsoft_savor2d". You can configure the screensaver to change the oval size by clicking on the "Settings" button on the same Windows dialog where you choose the desktop screensaver.

Savor JOGL

The second implementation uses OpenGL to draw colored squares. When you press the spacebar, it switches to colored triangles. You can change the size of the triangles in the configuration.

Savor Pix

The third implementation displays your pictures in slideshow mode. It searches for them in your "My Documents\My Pictures" directory and displays them in random order. You change the settings to make the slideshow speed slow, medium, or fast. You can also turn on a display of the image filename path. Pressing the spacebar skips to the next image.
