    Marquee Screen Saver

    Does anyone have a good link to download (freeware) a marquee screen saver that allows multiple custom messages to scroll across the screen. I have about 30 - 40 phrases/quotes that I would like to intermitantly scroll across the screen in random order.
    Tx

    Sorry.

    Totally free! (Cheapish sound so not nice!)

    Re: Marquee Screen Saver

    Here's a take on it from alt.comp.freeware: Any freeware screensaver for displaying large list of quotes?

    Re: Marquee Screen Saver

    One more to add to the mix. It's not <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>, but I think it does all that you want it to do. Ultra Screensaver Maker v2.01

    I downloaded it and checked it out a bit. It has the ability to create a text only screensaver and change the way it displays each individual text screen from background color or picture to font style, size and color. It's shareware and has a nag message on each screensaver created until you register it. Costs $20.

    Re: Marquee Screen Saver

    Its called Text_Gigant . It allows you to supply text sentences in a notepad format. And it displays this in a wrapped version on the screen. It allows to customize the speed and effect of text transition!

    Works well. Only down side is that the interface of the dialog is in German. It takes a bit of experimentation to figure out what the button titles say!!! Anyways, the screensaver is exactly what I needed!
    Cheers

    You mean like "... And what does this button do?" <img src=/S/meltdown.gif border=0 alt=meltdown width=15 height=15>
