SFXMaker 1.2.1 Final was released on January 6. The previous version was RC1.

I have updated the entry. Andrew, please bump it.


Other than that, the author has bad news. :(


"Now comes the part i hate the most. About the future of this project. Pretty cloudy, i may say. Some points :
- This is the last version written in AutoIT (i may change my mind if someone will give me a good reason to continue with au3);
- I would really like to continue this project, but after a while coding the same thing becomes boring. I feel like i'm developing an application just for me, with no actual users out there. If someone sees this message and is considering that my SFXMaker development should continue, send me feedback (via e-mail most probably, forums are down), telling me why he does so.
- If, by any chance, this project will continue, i would like to set up a mini dev-team, to work for a brand new SFXMakert, written maybe in C/C++. Dunno."

smaragdus on 11 Jul 2017
  • 11MB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by dmg

Vector Clock provides a fully scalable desktop clock and alarm that can be placed anywhere on your screen, rotated with total freedom, resized to any scale and set in 3D perspective view without losing any quality. The program offers a variety of beautiful faces and colors, from classic to modern.

System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: Application folder. A third file, clock-name.config will be created when you run the exe.
Stealth: ? Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the single clock of your choice or one of the installer packages. If an installer, you will need to extract it to a temporary folder, then move the contents of {app} to a folder of your choice.
  2. Select one of the exe files to run and create a blank file using the name of the selected exe and .portable as the file extension. For example, if VectorClock-Roman-Gears.exe is the clock you choose to run, create an empty file named VectorClock-Roman-Gears.portable.
  3. Launch the chosen .exe file.
What's new?
  • Added time formatting options (eg. h:mm:ss am/pm)
  • Show day of week option and hide digits seconds option

  • Fixed behaviour on multiple screens - when clock finds itself on non-existing screen (eg. after notebook undocking) - it moves itself to the main visible screen.

@Jimmy Neutron
Uniextracting the installer works fine. Otherwise, just run the installer, agree the license, choose portable mode and be sure to uncheck all the junk (toolbars etc.) it wants you to install. I will update the entry later.

webfork on 2010-11-30 17:24

Installation instructions updated. Note that I didn't test the "install as portable" option, which might work fine.

dmg on 2011-04-02 23:43

I just tried one and it no longer appears to be stealth. The individual clocks used to store settings in the application folder as hidden files, but that no longer appears to be the case.
