    What do I have to do to create a screensaver of a Nehe-Project ?? I have already something modified but there's always a mistake : "Initialization failed" [By calling it as a Screensaver;but by calling as usually it works fine ( ]
    What can that be ??

    Re: Screensaver

    How is it you are creating your screensaver? Are you using the screensaver library, or just renaming your .exe to a .scr?

    If you use VC++ I've got an Appwizard you could use that creates sample screensavers. It doesn't currently initialize OpenGL for you, but that's one of the things I plan on adding. (As well as the option for initialization of DirectX.)

    The Appwizard is located at You pretty much just have to unzip it into your VC++ template folder.

    For the screensaver I wrote, I initialized OpenGL in the WM_CREATE message with no problems. My screensaver even behaves well in the little preview window in the display's Control Panel.

    If you don't use VC++, I can send you the files for creating a simple ScreenSaver with OGL initialized.
