With everyone upgrading their acer laptop to clean out all the "bloat"ware, and maybe a little fine tuning of the drivers, they seem to 'lose' the acer screensaver that uses the webcam.
after much searching and testing i have finally found the screensaver and the files needed to for it to run.
here is the filelist needed to have it run correctly:
(all the files and folders are located in c:\windows\)
as you can tell, this screensaver is flash based. so all those flash programmers out there can tear it apart and customize your own webcam-enabled screensaver.
i have tested these files on my desktop computer running xp and it works. a little flash security box pops up when it accesses my webcam for the first time. then it runs just like on the laptop.
just install to the c:\windows\ folder and run it. you could also edit the acer.ini file to specify another location for the program
: acer.ini :
some other settings for the flash
: FlashSaver.dat :
i have posted the mentioned files here (updated 1/26/06)
for those who dont have a restore cd/dvd
let me know if/how to customize the .swf to use it as an active webcam screen saver.
email me if the link is dead.
Hope this helps
