Created a new Rolex screensaver!

Hey guys, I hadn't created a new Rolex screensaver in years, but that has changed! I finished a new one last night! I had SLdude send me a pic of his beautiful Everose YM 116655 and I animated it.

Go to my homepage, www.colemanitis.com, to see it in person and to download the free screensaver. I'm not promoting anything here, just a labor of love that I enjoy sharing with others. Enjoy!
  • Displays the time according to your PC
  • Displays the date according to your PC
  • Enters lume mode between 6 PM and 6 AM
  • Functional cyclops

It should size to your monitor, if that answers your question. Thanks for checking it out!

Thanks! Yeah, I've made tons, but unfortunately i've lost all the files to my earlier ones. BUT, I do have the new EXP II (black and white, with screensavers).
http://colemanitis.com/exp.php

And also the Green Sub "Hulk." No screensaver for that one yet...

Created a new Rolex screensaver!

Jeff - I still have your first Polar Expl. II screensaver on a desktop. PM me if you want the files sent for you to save - sorry to hear you lost the original files.

That's awesome, Paul! It's okay, don't feel bad, I can recreate them... and they'll look a lot better than the earlier ones did. So cool that you still use it after all these years! I can't really do anything with the compiled file (what you have), so don't worry about sending it to me.

The software I use to convert flash to screensaver is only for PC, but I'll look to see if there's something else out there that can do it. I'll get back to ya!

Glad y'all like it! I just made an update to my Website - link in signature. Now you can easily find and download all my recent screensavers. YM, EXP II (Polar and LN), and Hulk! I hadn't offered the Hulk as a screensaver until now. Enjoy guys and I can't wait to make more!

This is fantastic. I currently don't use a screen saver, so I will be doing that too. I wish I had a PC down in my shop near my watchbench, would love to have this down there!! I also checked out your youtube video as well.

I'm not sure if it's possible, and I remember somehow doing it on XP years and years ago, but is there a way to make this into an animated wallpaper too? I'm on Windows 10. This would be super cool.

I'm loving this. Especially the Lume mode. I've got the 116655. I put it on a 1 minute delay. Awesome!
