I had to switch it back to DirectX for two reasons. Under OpenGL, the screen saver ran harder kicking up my CPU fan to a noisy level. Also, Avast wanted to keep blocking it from running. Not sure why but Avast doesn't seem to have a problem with the DirectX version.

V1.2.1 fixed the calendar redrawing issue when the calendar changes at 12:00 am. If the screen saver is running at that time. This happened when I added the page curl to the calendar and forgot to test it. You can download the DirectX or OpenGL version now. See first post. ;)

Version 1.3.0 is DPI aware for both the installer and screen saver. ;)

Hi J.Baker!

I tried making my own screensaver with just a fullscreen borderless window and the GetLastInputInfo_() API, running it just from my app folder, but if the Windows calendar is shown (when you click the clock) then my window doesn't cover it. StickyWindow is #True. But your screensaver covers the calendar and other topmost windows, so how did you do that? Surely you didn't parse them all and remove their topmost flag temporarily?

BTW, there's a small text bug with v1.3.0 of your screensaver: the "y" in "May" is cropped.

Sorry for the delay and thanks for reporting the bug. I will have to fix that soon.

Here's what is in my code. Let me know if it works for you. I just kind of threw it in there at the time and it seem to work.

Code:
stick = OpenScreen(DesktopWidth(0), DesktopHeight(0), DesktopDepth(0), "", #PB_Screen_SmartSynchronization, DesktopFrequency(0))
StickyWindow(stick, 1)

So you're opening a Screen instead of a Window? That's likely why it's not working for me. I'll try that approach. Thanks!

In your code above you used StickyWindow() with a screen, but when I try I get an error that no window exists. Can you advise?

I'm not sure. All I know is it worked here and when I did it, it prevented mail and Avast popups from taking over the screen saver. Will have to think on that.

EDIT: I do have a settings/about window in my code. Add a window to your code but don't have it open and see if that helps. Maybe PureBasic is checking to see if there are any windows at all.

Version 1.4.0 is now available. Both the DirectX and OpenGL versions are in the zip file.

What's new...
  1. Fixed the calendar bug. Months with a "y" or a "g" would overlap the numerical date.
  2. Altered the snow particle procedure a bit.
  3. The installer now checks itself (file size) at startup to see if it has been altered or not. Basic anti-virus protection.
  4. Updated the installer icon.
  5. Created a new screen saver icon.
  6. Adjusted the screen saver preview window in Windows Settings.
