Just uncompress the archived file and copy "3DAPOLLO.scr" into "C:\WINDOWS" ("C:\WINNT" on Windows2000) holder!!
If your OS is Windows2000,WindowsMe,Windows98SE, then you must install DirectX(version 8.1 or later).
Please get DirectX from Microsoft DirectX page
If your OS is Windows Vista or XP, DirectX8.1(or later) was already installed. So you don't need install again.
After you copy "3DAPOLLO.scr" into "C:\WINDOWS"("C:\WINNT" on Windows2000) holder, you must do following settings.
|No.||Windows Vista||Windows XP||Description|
Left click on desktop, then select "property" menu.
Select "Screen Saver" if you have Windows Vista.
Select "3DAPOLLO" on "Screen saver" list box.
You can define wait time on "Wait time" box.
If you click "Preview" button, Screen saver starts now.
If you click "Settings" button, following screen will be appear.
If you check this, 3D performance parameter (FPS:Frame Per Second) will be appear on left up of screen.
FPS means 'how many times your PC could refresh screen in one second'.
Larger number means good performance of your PC's graphic card.
With recent powerfull graphic card, FPS becomes over 140 on this screen saver.
Do BUMP and Environment mapping
If you check this, bump mapping and environment mapping will be performed.
Bump mapping is technic for represent bumpy on the object.
And environment mapping represent reflection on the object.
Using these technic needs graphic card's HW function.
If your graphic card did not support these technic,
bump mapping and environment mapping will not be performed
regardless of checking this check box.
If you check this, RCS rocket jet will be performed with 'Particle' technic.
Particle give the high load to graphic card.
If your graphic card do not have enough performance, Try off this feature.
If you select '640x480 fix', screen resolution will be swithed to 640x480 pixel (low resolution).
Or select 'follow to desktop resolution', desktop (high) resolution will be used.
Some low performance graphic card can not display 3D graphics with desktop (high) resolution.
If yours are so, please select '640x480 fix'.
If you want to reset settings, please delete setting file.
Setting file "3dapollo.ini" will be generated under "C:\windows" holder.
If you get some trouble with change these settings, try delete this setting file.
If you find this dialog box, I'm afraid your computer's 3D graphic performance is insufficiency.
Please arrange more powerful 3D graphic card.
This program do NOT change any system datas like registry and so on.
But setting file "3dapollo.ini" will be generated under "C:\windows" holder.
So you can uninstall perfectly with just delete the "3DAPOLLO.scr" and "3dapollo.ini" file.
