(There's no video for HypnOptic Savescreen System yet. Please contribute to MR and add a video now!)
HypnOptic is a screensaver suite that did not come with many modules, but instead came with its own SDK to develop your own modules.
The mad, acid, savescreen of your choice, is here again! HypnOptic is a modular and customizable package that, better than before, will drive you crazy. The HypnOptic INIT automates the savescreen starting and the HypnOptic Control lets you select your favoured module, the idle time and decide whether the module should play sounds. Furthermore the Control accepts, as module, any kind of file so it may launch, after the inactivity time, the file you want: different savescreen applications, disk defragmentation utilities, the letter you're writing, since one year, to your sweetheart and so on. HypnOptic modules are stand-alone applications so, if you want, you may use them also without the Control-INIT aid (just like the old HypnOptic), moreover any module is able to play sounds asynchronously.
Besides INIT and Control, the HypnOptic Savescreen System package contains four modules:
Last, but not least, you may find inside the package a SDK for developing your own savescreen application. The SDK project lets you concentrate only on the creative part of developing: the main, and more tedious, part of work is already done. Even if you're a inexperienced programmer you may easily build your own HypnOptic, stand-alone, module. The SDK contains also a fifth savescreen: HOSDK.
