The Screen-Saver (v1.0a)
The Sheep And Cheerful Screen-saver contains all the following features:
- Animation Mode
Showing all the animations from this site, plus a few new ones
- Sleep Mode
Counts sheep jumping over a fence. Of course, if all they did was just
jump over the fence it wouldn't be part of the Sheep And Cheerful Screen-saver...
- Sheep Politics
Scrolling version of the Sheep Politics page from this site but with the spelling
and grammer corrected :-)
- Flossies Thought for the Day
Words of wit and wisdom from Flossie, the philosophising sheep.You can even
create your own quotes and thoughts for Flossie to think.
- User selectable tunes
Sheep Politics and Sleep Mode can each play a user select MIDI file.
- Speech (Requires MS Text-to-Speech Engine)
If the Microsoft Speech API and voices are installed on your PC, Flossie
will speak her thoughts and the narator will read out Sheep Politics. Currently
the only place I know of where you can download these speech items from are
the MS web site: http:\\www.mircosoft.com\iit and the full kit weights in
at over 40 megs zipped. You have been warned!
Note: The Microsoft Speech API is not required to run the screen-saver,
only to get the speech.. In fact, after a few quotes read out in a squeeky
sheep-type voice, most people turn it off!
- Highly Configurable
The screen-saver is highly configurable. Each "sub-saver"
can be turned on or off and has several options.
- Opening Effects
You can choose between several opening effects: A titled effect based
on the Sheep Politic graphics, the 9:10am Train from Ewe-ston, no opening
effect, or a random selection.
- Windows NT 4.0 and 95/98
Same EXE is for use on all the above.
