    I have looked all over the net for these but cant find anything good. What I wold like is the autobot or decepticon logo spinning around or something. Anyone know any sites that might have this.

    Download the G1 Transformers font (solid) and use your 3D text screensaver (assuming you have Windows). Click on Settings and you can adjust what text is on the screen. With the Transformers font, the bracket keys "[ or ]" are the Autobot and Decepticon logo.

    Dude, do you have any idea what you've done by posting that link here? TRANSFORMERS RELATED FONTS?! I don't know whether to thank you, or just curl up in a fetal position and whimper in fear at the hours I'll spend tweaking those fonts.

    The easy way is by using the "fonts" utility in the control panel if you're in Windows.

    Ok I selected transfomers solid in the choose font in the 3D text settings but I dont understand how to make the Autobot and Decepticon logo appear on the screen.

    With the bracket keys, above and to the left of the enter key on most keyboards. The ones that look like '[' and ']'.

    They are pretty horrible squished looking logos though, so you may want to skip them anyway.

    Try it with the shift key. I had to do that in one of my applications to get it to work.

    It's not the brackets, it's the braces (i.e., { and }).

    In the screensaver setting, it will show up as braces, but when the screensaver starts, it will show correctly.
