Best regards
NOAH

many thanks Jerry but it may work if you have couple of images i have 5 minutes of images (for each screensaver we have (two here))every 3 seconds get changed i guess they are 100 image or above in each though it is not facing the god of war designing team challenge
unfortunately the file size is too big or i can attach them but they are on God Of War 4 is here! site for free

You might try Resource Hacker and see if you can get the images from inside the .scr. I've modified a few screen savers using reshacker, you can export the .bmp that the screen saver is currently using and replace it with the image of your choice that way. I can't get to the site to try it out and see if it will work for the ones you mentioned, but it's another option to try

yeah, I tried it last night, the only .bmp's I found were small images, like menu or icon pictures....but the .scr is 16 MB, they've got to be in there somewhere

EDIT: found this...looks like you're out of luck by this method, only option will be to take print screens. I vaguely remember seeing something about using Irfanview (I think) to automatically take screen shots at timed intervals, but I saw that quite some time ago
