Application

Double click on worldclok(.jar) in the extraction directory or java -jar worldclock.jar in that directory


Screensaver
A World clock screen saver based on the Java SaverBean Screensaver SDK. In addition to the clocks, the screen saver also allows for UFOs.

Downloads

Troubleshooting

Configuration

Both the application and the screensaver require a configuration file. That file is a simple XML file that can be easily edited via a text editor or via the [#editor|editor] application. Basic structure of the file:

 <config>
   <planes>
     <plane name="ufo" horizontal="gauche" vertical="haut" image="pathto/ufo.png"/>
   </planes>
   <cities>
     <city name="Tours" lat="47.27" long="0.43" timezone="Europe/Paris"/>
   </cities>
 </config>

Planes:

    name: name of the plane
    horizontal: direction of the horizontal movement of the plane, gauche: towards the left, droite: towards the right
    vertical: direction of the vertical movement of the plane, haut: towards the top, bas: towards the bottom
    image: plane's image path relative to the configuration file

Cities:

    lat: latitude, positive values: north, negative values: south
    long: longitude, positive values: east, negative values: west
    timezone: time zone in which the city is located (list)

See the config.xml for some samples.

Editor

An editor for the above configuration file.
Downloads

Requires you to download the config.xml file and put it in the Worldclock Folder. Then you must locate config.xml from within the Worldclock options: ONLY on the first time you run it. Worldclock WILL work without it but no cities will be marked on it.
