    Default Sega Saturn Screensaver

    I'd just got into work to start another night shift when I noticed a floppy disk stuck to my monitor. It said -

    'This disk contains
    a screen-saver demonstrating
    screen shots taken from
    the amazing new
    Saturn system from Sega

    See reverse of card
    for loading information'
    (No idea what the 'card' is)

    At first I assumed it was a wind-up, but I'm known as the games geek of the office so someone's obviously left it for me. I thought I might as well give it a whirl and sure enough, it's a Sega Saturn Screensaver. The software is quite primitive (written for Win 3.1 I presume) but it installed fine on my Win 98 PC.

    I figured there might be a few Saturn fans interested in this so I zipped the files up and uploaded them here.

    I'd be interested to see what platforms it does work on, if people can try it out for me?

    Heh.. sorry.. probably a very English phrase ... when you wind somebody up.. i.e.a practical joke.. I expected the file to be a virus or porn or something so I was actually quite surprised that it was the genuine article!

    Works with Windows ME. Sweet... thanks to whom ever gave that too you and you of course!

    As far as "a wind-up" goes, I think that means a joke or something.

    I hate to bump such an ancient thread, but would anyone still happen to have these old files? Link is dead. Got directed here from a Google Search, haha

    I was wondering why so many people had that piece of crap ME running, didn't realize the thread was 10 years old.
