ok, i tried the different step sizes, and i see why you had it the way you did, anything bigger than 2 is just to jumpy.
but it's fine because,
i've set speed to 200, and now cpu is only 50% while dimming, and 0 afterwards, and its a nice gentle fade. this is excellent and i can definitely live with that since the cpu use is only while dimming not afterwards.
mouse issue is fixed.
what can i say, i just LOVE this screensaver - super simple and really gentle and wonderful. love it!
and i cant believe how could you are getting regarding gui configuration pages.
sending a few credits to show my appreciation. guess i better throw a couple to brotherS as well since it was his idea
some suggestions not related to program directly:
1) your about box should point to: http://skrommel.donationcoder.com
2) you should say in your about box that donations are welcome, and maybe point them directly to your donation link (see https://www.donation...dex.php?topic=3164.0
for more info)
3) this is one of those utils that might be worth making a pad file for and submitting to some software sites, and maybe making a special Featured Skrommel Apps page for or something - it deserves broader recognition.
as you can tell, i really love this one. for those who generally dont use a screensaver, this is a wonderful subtle alternative.
