Coming soon: 3d clock screensaver!

Tuesday, November 28th, 2006

Almost ready (the first 90% is done, I’m working on the next 90%), this is the screensaver you will be impatient to show your friends!
The screensaver is completely 3d rendered and will require a 3d video card to run (early geforce models or better, the kind of video card any computer bought in the latest four years should have).
It will feature multiple clock models, so you can change your virtual clock every day, depending on your mood 🙂
Right now it’s still in production phase: it needs a little more polish, a decent installer and some kind of documentation. I am also modeling some new clock model, just to be sure you will have enough styles to choose from 😉

By the way, this screensaver will also need the Microsoft .net framework version 2.0, so you might as well start downloading it.

FontViewer version 1.3

Thursday, November 23rd, 2006

A new version of FontViewer has been released today.

Features of the new version

  • Character Map The new Character map window allows you to view all the 256 ASCII characters for the selected font. This is especially useful when you are searching for a specific character in graphical fonts like Wingdings and Webdings. You can of course copy any element on the grid.
  • Installed font browser This new window allows you to browse through your installed fonts, so you can finally use only one program for your font hunts.
  • Improved stability The new setup should fix all those “comctl32.ocx” errors many of you are having.
