Easiest way to make Kyushu J7W1 Shinden fly on your Mac OS X

Sample image of Kyushu J7W1 Shinden Screen saver

This is just my personal note!


My most favorite screen saver on Mac OS X is "Red Baron" by Mr. Chris Kent (you can download it from http://cskent.com/redbaron/ , last checked 2008.02.12). It's fun to watch the famous "Fokker DR1" flying over the nice green field on your screen. First of all, I would like to thank him about distributing such an excellent software for free! (I tried to make my own based on some OpenGL examples, but I could not make a such beautiful screen saver...)

However, I would like to see other airplanes too. So I tried to switch this Fokker DR1 with Kyushu J7W1 Shinden.


Fortunately, the 3D model of Fokker DR1 used by this screen saver is accesible: related files are located in "~/Library/Screen\ Savers/RedBaron.savers/Contents/Resources/Models/FokkerDR1/". So all you need to do is replacing the model with yours in 3DS format, but using the same file name 'triplane.3ds'.

The conversion to 3DS by AC3D is not perfect, but you can enjoy differenet airplanes on your Mac!
