When I first bought my laptop with Windows 8 Pro preinstalled on it, it had come with the ROG screen saver. Now that I've upgraded to Windows 8.1, it is now gone. Where can I go about reacquiring this screen saver?

Demonicpagan, I still have the Asus Screensaver after doing the Windows 8.1 Update, it is part of the Asus Theme - select the Asus theme, and you have the Asus option in the dropdown when selecting which Screensaver you want to trip off after the delay.

Think you could make that Theme for me to grab? I've done a clean install of 8.1 and don't have any of that anymore. Greatly appreciate it as I love the theme.

Demonicpagan, thought of that, but it is a copyrighted work of Asus. Ask the Asus guys (Marshall, Pitcher, etc) on the forum to contact me and if they say it is ok I can PM it to you at the least, or post it here for all to access. It is called oem.theme

Asus doesn't post this theme for download, but they do have desktop pictures, and another theme posted, but not this one.

I sent a PM to Marshall@ASUS and Pitcher@Asus (Mason@ASUS has a full box). Hopefully they say its ok. I liked that theme the best. Was hoping that my Surface Pro tablet would have had it since I copied the theme over there, but it didn't keep the screensaver, just the desktop images. I had looked for the location of it where it was before I did a clean install (when I did a straight upgrade) and couldn't find the Asus.mp4 file it was looking for in the Windows.old folder that was created.

The themes are kept here (change the username):

At least you know what else to back up next time:

C:\Users\your_username

Again, I don't have it anymore since it's a clean install of 8.1.

Demonicpagann, I hadn't watched the G750 Screensaver before, it is a high res version of the G750 promo Asus released - perhaps longer too.

Pretty cool :cool:

I don't know why Asus wouldn't want it out there, it is a nice promo for the G750 series. I hope they say it is ok to post it.

Maybe Asus can post it in their download area, in the G750 section.

Yeah, I know. I took a gimps at it a few weeks back and hand't watched it to completion yet myself. Is another reason why I want the theme so bad.

I have poked our G series and MB product managers to send me what they have. I'll upload them to the ROG site and make a new article this week. Hopefully I can get the full themes for Win 7 at least, we do have a Win 8 one for R4BE specifically as well.

I lost the entire theme from my clean install.

Perhaps you can do this - use any of the myriad firefox/chrome extensions that allow you to download youtube videos. You'll get a .flv video file of your desired screensaver. Googling gives me quite a few results describing how to set a video as a screensaver, or creating a .scr file from a video file. You may need to convert the .flv beforehand, but once again there are many free programs that do this. Experiment with this and maybe you'll get a satisfactory result (potentially even better, as the youtube video may be a higher res than the original screensaver).

Be wary of adware/spyware though.
