I like the concept, but the animation for the flames is rather fast, which makes it fairly unrelaxing to have on the screen. The point of having a fireplace screensaver instead of, say, a waterfall or moving geometric shapes, is so that it can double-duty as a relaxing image to watch. As this one moves fast enough to induce mild anxiety, I'd say it meets only half of its goals. There's no option for 2.5 stars, so I'll round up to 3.
It's nice but I don't really like the logos at the bottom
No sounds, even tough their is a speaker icon for sound adjustment in the screensaver HUD.
Best screensaver ever!!!!!!
I can;t make it my screen saver even after following the instructions
PLEASE ADD SOUND PLUS MAKE THE FLAMES A LITTLE SLOWER AND TADAA.
I love it. I prefer quiet screensavers like this because I often fall asleep watching something on my computer, and loud screensavers wake me up. I think the flames are good just the way they are.
nice screensaver but there are no sounds to it
This screensaver is very realistic and I like it a lot. The only problem is that it crashes after a awhile...will not keep running.
Flames are moving a bit too fast and there is not crackling sound. It would be really nice if you slowed it down to be more realistic and added the crackling sound.
Looks great, but sound doesn't seem to work in Windows 10. Knocking off a point because the sound of crackling flames really adds to the effect.
I think it's beautiful and gives off a warming affect
Flames are too fast
