A screenshot on OS4Depot would be nice. I don't have a warp3d supported graphics card so I can't make one myself.

Screen shots uploaded

Did not see that it was moderated, so I uploaded some image twice

Why are comments to the screen shot mandatory??

Great, I'll approve them shortly.

No problem.

> Why are comments to the screen shot mandatory??

To force people to write silly comments ;)

Great stuff Shadow!

I really like this saver & on A1/OS4 if really flies. Are you planning to develop this any further? As I have a couple of ideas here.

I've just let this screensaver work while I was having my tea, and when I came back and starting using my A1 again, the graphics were corrupted - shadows, wrong colours, missings pixels, corrupted mouse pointer.

Removing the screensaver from WBStartup and rebooting returned the display to normal.

This looks gorgeous, and runs nice'n'smooth! Thanks!

Does anyone else get a beeping noise coming through AmigaAmp if both this and AmigaAmp are running at the same time?

@AmiPal

I'll check that one out.

[EDIT] Checked. Yeah, I get that too. It sounds like static-like sound coming through just as the Matrix falls down the screen.

I tried this out, and it does look really good. Nice and smooth at least through 100 density and speed 150 on a 1280x1024 screen.

Never saw any of those corruption issues like someone else mentioned. It just worked for me.

However, I can't run this unless it has some "tweaking" done to it.

I run the Distributed.net client in the background, crunching OGR 24/7. When this blanker is running by itself (I had the dnet client exit and tried it again), it takes 100% CPU usage, even when the settings are put at the extreme lowest settings. Though this was still on a 1280x1024 screen.

So shadow, would it be possible to make this so it doesn't use 100% CPU all the time? I would love to put this blanker up all the time, but I can't if it eats too much CPU time to display it.

Maybe a setting for something like maximum FPS or something. I'm sure this ting is getting much higher FPS rates than my monitor is refreshing the screen (that's at 60Hz), which is really a waste of CPU time to update the screen that fast.
