I'm running version :-

SlimServer Version: 6.5b1 - 7444 - Windows XP - EN - cp1252

Since installing 6.5 i cant format the display on my good old slimp.

Style and brightness are controlled as is font style - but any of the date/time formatting is not working.

Hadnt changed the slimserver software for nearly 2 years but now i've got a Nokia 770 decided it was time to upgrade :)

welcome to 6.5...
The Date/Time screensaver now has it's own settings.

Thanks for that Kevin.

So i'm guessing the formatting bit will dissapear from settings pages sometime soon :)

Or do they now have another use....

your guess is as good as mine.

time and date strings do appear elsewhere.

honestly, I don't know why there was a need to break the screensaver
off like that. But, it's not my software.

It was my change. I made because it the seconds part of the time display
wasn't updating every second and looked truly awful. The other formatting
options control the format used for showing, e.g. file modified times.
