as a first post, i wanted to send out a quick thanks to the community and development team - thanks for the great visuals and support - you guys are great!
secondly, i wanted to ask if anyone had any ideas regarding a problem i have. i want to be able to run ES as a fullscreen window without having it automatically terminated on mouse move (the standard screensaver behavior). Is there a switch or a config file setting i can change so that it only terminates on pressing ESC or something similar? There are several reasons I want to do thins but the biggest one is that I want to run electric sheep as a background while having a music player in the foreground.
using autohotkey, i created a script to launch ES and bring the player to the top but as soon as i move my mouse, it's all over. possible solutions i have explored:
- use a program like vitaldesktop to run ES as the desktop wallpaper. unfortunately, i run an alternate shell on some of my machines and this only works while using explorer. also, vital desktop doesn't play friendly with desktop widgets even when running explorer.
- use sheepwatcher to run ES... but i can't find a way to run the program fullscreen. perhaps this is an option AC can add? i have no idea how to contact him though (unless he reads here). his site and documentation is probably intentionally emailless.
- find a program like sheepwatcher that can display a screensaver in fullcreen - but i couldn't find one.
- find a switch for the screensaver that would allow a "terminate on ESC"
does anyone else have any ideas on this?
