|This is a port of the screen saver glmatrix from the xscreensaver package,|
done by Shadow of IRIS, aka. Steen Lund Nielsen.
A fast processor
A 3D graphics card
There are two versions included in the package; one for 68K and one for PPC
Copy the desired version aswell as Matrix3_half2.png to the same directory.
For example 'WBStartup'.
The screen saver runs as a commodity. The preference gui can be accessed
through commodity exchange or by running the program twice.
The GUI is rather simple:
Timeout: The period in seconds it waits before blanking the screen.
Density: Adjusts how many columns of symbols are dropped from the top down.
For '060 I have found a value between 10-20 to achieve acceptable frame rates
For PPC a density of ~50 is quite possible.
Speed: Adjusts the animation speed.
Encoding: Selects different symbols.
Screen Size: Selects a screen size.
Fog: Enable/Disable distance cueing.
Wave: Enable/Disable waving of symbols.
Rotate: Enable/Disable camera rotation.
Invert alpha: Inverts the alpha channel of the texture. Enable this if you are
using a B/CVisionPPC or CV3D.
- Program the ReAction gui instead of using ReActor
- Port to AOS4, have to make sure that StormC does not automatically open some
libraries for me
- Port to MOS ??
