     This program uses DirectDraw 7 to display sharks swimming around and other stuff (check the screenshot). I created this because I 'discovered' class modules to move sprites around which simplifies the code alot, and allows easy implementation of more sprites. The sprites have been taken from the SNES game 'Donkey Kong Country', that explains the monkey :-). The program runs really great, even on my P133 with 1000 sharks... maybe someone could help me create a screensaver out of this? As usual, please leave feedback so I know what people think about it...

  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
