The Home Planet Screen Saver

A screen saver which displays the the Earth map with day and night regions and the current position and phase of the Moon like Home Planet's main Map window is available. It used to be included with Home Planet, but has been broken out into a separate package to reduce download time for Home Planet users who have no interest in the screen saver. To obtain the screen saver, first download it.

    Download Home Planet Screen Saver (503 Kb)

When the download is complete, you will have a “zip” compressed archive named hp3ssave.zip. Use Info-ZIP or a compatible utility to extract the file HomePlanet.scr into the directory on your system where screen savers are kept. On Windows XP this is c:\windows\system32, on Windows 95 and 98 it is c:\windows\system and on Windows NT c:\winnt\system32. If you've installed your operating system on a different drive and/or directory, use the location where the system's *.scr files are found.

Once the screen saver is extracted into the system directory, use the “Display” item in the Control Panel to select the screen saver. The only configuration parameter is whether the Moon is displayed on the map. In August of 2006 the screen saver was updated to use the NASA natural colour cloudless Earth map. If you prefer the original topographic map, or the current version of the screen saver refuses to run on older systems such as Windows 95 and 98, you may continue to download the original release.
