Rain (32-bit safe)
A rain-based screensaver for RISC OS 4 and above. Technically, not a great screensaver but interesting to look at! Now released through RISC OS Open.
 
DeskBall (32-bit safe)
A snow-based screensaver for RISC OS 4 and above. Turns the desktop into a game of breakout. Now released through RISC OS Open.
 
Shred (32-bit safe)
A snow-based screensaver for RISC OS 4 and above. Runs the desktop into a shredder. Now released through RISC OS Open.
 
Random (32-bit safe)
Screensaver randomiser for RISC OS 4 and above. Now released through RISC OS Open.
 
asmfind (0.01) (32-bit safe)

Use the Windows key on your keyboard to open a menu at the mouse pointer.
 
AMPlayer (1.39) (32-bit safe)

This is an unofficial 32-bit release of the example front-end for the AMPlayer modules. It is based upon the unofficial 32-bit release by Peter Naulls. Improvements include:

  • Larger playlist display shows more tracks;
  • Better memory management (uses ASH library from !Routines);
  • Empty button in playlist window to clear all tracks from the playlist;
  • Save the playlist into AMPlayer choices to reload next time AMPlayer starts;
  • Shuffle button in playlist window to shuffle the tracks.

Note: The release has not yet been endorsed by the current AMPlayer maintainers but has been used without problems here.
