This is an excellent, well written program. it works on both WOS and 68k, you can select Screenmode, speed etc. Works straight out of the archive.

If you need a decent screensaver for your gfx based Amiga, this is the one.

Recommended.

I tried on my machine and works immediatly, whitout any WarpUP errors which show often with WarpUP software.
You did an excellent job !

For the next revision a screenmode selecter would be nice, because I have more 1280x1024 (Picasso96) resolutions and the Matrix uses another one then my Workbench, so a ~2 second delay by switching screens.

Keep up the good work !

Aargh! This is the first time I've regretted going with a PIV rather than a CybervisionPPC.

The screenshots look fantastic!

Hmm, it asked for "powerpc.library" :( Here I was hoping that it would work with a 68k machine.

Just click on the Download link, which is on the news item above. The original archive D/L you had was over 900k this one is just over a meg, it encorporates the screenmode and invert alpha channel option

To get the matrix 1 meg version with the options
you have to add a "1" after "glmatrix.lha"

i.e "glmatrix1.lha"

I just thought that needed spelling out. :)

Er it doesn't cos I just checked.
Clicking on the link above will Download the 1 meg version. Same one I D/L second time.

The Author updated the program with additional options, following user feedback on AW forums.

Er why not buy OS3.9? It's well worth the dosh, OS3.1 is no where near as good anyhow.

Sorry my mistake. I have updated the archive. The 68K version should now run with out asking for powerpc.library.

I hope it works for you now.

@ shadow

What a fantastic screensaver, have put it in my WBStartup right away

Any chance of an Amiga OS4 version soon, to show the crowds on my AmigaOne as I tour around the country showing the development version?
