Your Turn: Moving Desktop Wallpaper for Gamers

Introduction to Moving Wallpapers
Moving Wallpaper Pack #1: Warcraft and Skyrim
Moving Wallpaper Pack #2: Reader Requests, World of Warcraft

Moving Wallpaper Pack #3: Mists of Pandaria, World of Warcraft coming soon!
Moving Wallpaper Pack #4: City Collection, World of Warcraft coming soon!

We’ve been hard at work with our beta testers (special thanks to @Rezznul) to specialize the gamer animated desktop wallpapers for a wide variety of desktop computers.

While we’re working on perfecting the technical side of the experience, I thought it would be fun to open the process up to the community, getting your feedback for the next set of wallpapers.

Just email disciplinaryaction@yahoo.comwith a screenshot from World of Warcraft, Skyrim, or Star Wars: The Old Republic that you think would make a good moving desktop background. We’ll take a look at all the submissions at noon on Sunday, July 1, and turn one (or possibly several) into animated wallpapers.

Good luck!

Moving Desktop Wallpaper: Grizzly Hills, World of Warcraft

Introduction to Moving Wallpapers
Moving Wallpaper Pack #1: Warcraft and Skyrim
Moving Wallpaper Pack #2: Reader Requests, World of Warcraft
Moving Wallpaper Pack #3: Mists of Pandaria, World of Warcraft coming soon! Moving Wallpaper Pack #4: City Collection, World of Warcraft coming soon!

I found the most beautiful Skyrim wallpaper from Dead End Thrills and put it on my Mac. It was great; I could almost see the trees blowing in the breeze, or maybe the occasional dragon hurtling past a distant mountain top.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful, I thought, if you could have a desktop wallpaper that did move a little- not just annoying fish flying past, but maybe the slow sunrise over Mulgore in World of Warcraft, a wintery day outside Solitude in Skyrim, a Tython waterfall in Star Wars: The Old Republic? A wallpaper with just the tiniest bit of movement would make a computer monitor seem so much less like a computer and so much more like a window.

To run, download DreamScene Video Wallpaper (PC) or VLC Media Player (Mac)- more technical info below.
