.... to be able to play the game tracks (.trk & .ntrk) in a computer screensaver. I would love to install something like that in my office computer, this way I would be able to take 5 minutes breaks from time to time to watch stunts I made at home like flying under a bridge or in a really close formation http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif. It could be a very good promotional tool for the game also.
I think I'm asking to much. No? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Well I think that idea is cool, but I don't know how that could be done (without some major changes) considering the fact that track files don't work outside the game enviroment.

It wont work directly, but if you use some video capture software to record the track as .wmv or .mpeg while playing it, you could play the media file back at work.

Edit: spelling

That's a good idea. I know some screensavers allow to show pictures you selected (For example your holiday photographs). Does anyone know about a similar software that plays video files.

I couldn't give you a name, but I know I've seen screensavers that play .avis and .mpegs (with sound even, although a screensaver with sound can get very annoying, very quickly).

Just do a search on the Shareware sites. Something's bound to come up.

I follow your advice JunkoIfurita and I found one here: http://www.gold-software.com/AVIMPGScreensaver-file5181.html

Although It's a free trial It seem to work just fine. Tonight I'm going to start recording mpeg files with FRAPS 2.0 software.
