View Full Version : snes emulator screen saver

Hi All,

I was searching for a snes screensaver, and couldn't really find anything. As it turns out, zsnes has a "record mode" and the filesize is actually very small.

Anyway long story short I couldn't find anything, so I rolled my own with a bit of quick and dirty perl.

Just install zsnes and xscreensaver, download the attached script, and edit the directories to point to where your roms are kept. Make some recordings in zsnes in slot 0, and you can have your snes greatest hits playing as your screen saver in ubuntu. Fun. I'd love it if someone came up with a more clever solution that what I've done.
