I’ve just come across a great looking screensaver that was created using InstantStorm. It’s called Borealis and it was made by Le Marquis. Go crazy for this!

InstantStorm 1.5 now available + history

June 10, 2007 | 10:13 pm | Tags: instantstorm

I know I’m coming up with this post a little bit late but Ondřej and I were pretty busy with publishing this InstantStorm release and planning a brand new freeware project. For those who don’t know what this piece of software is all about, I’ll make a short introduction.

About 6 years ago, I was pretty impressed by all things Macromedia Flash. I spent many days making some silly Flash applications for my school magazine cover CD. One day I came across a promotional screensaver of my favorite video game and downloaded it. It was amazing. Then I found out it had been made with Flash and started wondering: “How do I turn a Flash animation into a screensaver?!”. I searched the Internet and found a couple of nice tools for this but they were all extremely expensive. Spending like $50 for this kind of program was just too much (I was 11 y.o.), I only wanted to make a few savers for my school magazine CD. A couple of years later, my friend Ondřej and I figured we should make something free for authoring Flash screensavers. The codename of our project had been “Flash Dash”, then we renamed it to InstantStorm.

InstantStorm 1.5 next week

May 26, 2007 | 2:24 pm | Tags: instantstorm

You may have heard of InstantStorm. It was the first Flash screensaver maker to be released as freeware and it’s developed by my friend Ondřej and I. Anyway, we expect the new version (1.5) release date to be sometime next week. Here’s a brief list of major changes since InstantStorm 1.0.2:

The program is almost finished, we just have to write a few pages of the new features’ documentation, re-test dual monitor support in Windows Vista and compile localized language packs.
