DSS V1.63

Dcat Screen Saver is a Freeware screen saver which allows you to use your own images and audio. The Screen Saver supports MP3, Wave and Module audio files. There is a total of 81 transitional effects available, which can be used to create a smaller list of effects. Images and the Transition effects can be shown in alphabetical order, list order, your own list order and your own list randomly or with no transitions at all. Besides Dcat Screen Saver being a traditional screen saver, it can also be run in a window. This allows the screen saver to be viewed whilst using the computer or just used as a standard screen saver. Dcat Screen Saver also has the ability to shut down the computer after a set amount of time. The Screen Saver can also be sent to the traybar when no longer required. The last image displayed can be set as the wallpaper. The Audio can be tweaked several ways for best effect.

What's new :

The latest version of Dcat Screen Saver fixes compatibility with Windows Vista and Windows 7 and has some minor code improvements. This version (1.63) now runs on all Windows operating systems from Windows 95 to Windows 7 including both 32 Bit and 64 Bit versions (XP, Vista and Windows 7)

The Last Version :
The last version (1.61) fixes a few bugs and allows the Audio Player to be run from the Start/Programs menu. This means that Dcat Screen Saver's Audio Player can be used like a stand alone audio player. The audio directories still have to be set from the Settings window.
