    Win2k (and probably most other current Winx) users, select monitor properties, screensaver, select "3D Flying Objects (OpenGL), select style: 'textured flag', select 'texture...' and then use the following bitmap for the flag's texture:

    [​IMG] (Save it as a bitmap)

    I think you'll be pleased with the results. It will flap across your screen looking something like this: :)

    I can't seem to get it to work, still comes out as a non-moving picture.

    :confused: Hmmm...not sure what the problem might be. OpenGL not supported by your video card/driver maybe?

    Where's the "monitor properties?" All I can do is get to screen saver mode but it never let's me select "texture" and I can only pick what windows has on its lists.

    It will only give me these two choices to save it - JPEG or ALL files. So, I clicked all files and renamed it .bmp
    Am I doing something wrong?

    One good turn deserves another - how do you 'dump' your screen like that?

    Follow the link I posted. Right-click over the image of the flag and "Save picture as..." THEN select 'save as type': bitmap.

    Then, from your desktop, right-click and go to "Properties", then select 'Screen Saver', then follow the steps I previously posted.

    Press the "print screen" button. Go to MS Paint or photoshop or wherever. Paste. There it is.

    BTW: I got it to work :) It kind of makes me sea sick :( haha

    it wiggles too fast and I can't seem to slow it down. Here is the one I have. 3d logo that rotates and floats around. Can't seem to find on web, but if you want it email me jschad01 at hotmail.com or tell me how I can upload it here.
