Nice

by Andrei on July 23, 2017

Absolutely fantastic time & effort has gone into this cool-as screensaver, well done bro!
To "Eric" who says this does not run in extended desktop mode...I found out by mistake that

it can "integrate" with the screensaver you already have set in place: I have W7 Ultimate

x64, and I have the Green MATRIX set already, but if you go open the retro and hit the

"Preview" mode you'll find that the Matrix still kicks in at the set time you've configured

it to run, but this awesome RETRO scrensaver will also run on your "Primary" desktop

monitor the moment you hit the "Preview" button...if you get my drift Eric?! Have a play &

you'll see what I mean m8. 10 out of 10 Andy Fielding - Shot Bro & many thanks for your

primo effort & FX Amigo!

2).
Yep definitely works with the MATRIX screensaver set as the default scr & just use the "Preview" mode for the RETRO Screensaver to have multiple monitor display MATRIX and the RETRO will display on your primary monitor! - but not any other screensaver will work in this mix. I see someone else on W7 x64 says here it dont work on their system ... well I only know whats happening here on my OS sorry. Also ... I have not seen the black & white colour change mentioned - only green all the way in Preview-mode ... damn this rocks! "Kei Runga Nö Atu Andy Fielding! (It's All Good Bro). Andy Fielding.

Totally Rad! Gnarly to the bone Cheesters! Can't wait to make my i7/64GB/5TB system look like my Commodore 64!

by 80s Dude on March 29, 2017

Really neat! I just wished it was in color all the time. Anyway to make that happen? This is the coolest screensaver I have ever seen.
If it would stay in color, that would be something I would pay money for !

by Leon on March 19, 2017

This is actually pretty amazing! I feel like it's the StarCraft menu all over again haha, props to the creator Andy Fielding!

by Vitaliy on November 10, 2016

I like it, looks sweet with my alienware r13 with the green keyboard backlight, also i got windows 10 and preview works just fine, no problems

by Hrafn on October 6, 2016

good

by nyakundi christopher anasi on September 11, 2016

Works on Windows 10 64-bit. Only the preview won't work.

by Me on September 3, 2016

Awesome,.....really

by eric on August 2, 2016

Absolutely amazing!

by Stephanie on July 29, 2016

It's cool to look at. I noticed that there are some items that "go offline"... I can tell a lot of work was put into it to make it work the way it does.

One question: I was going to make an application execute the screen saver but I couldn't figure out where the screen saver (.scr) file is. I can find a couple others that I installed but I don't know where this one installed to.

Screensavers Planet: If you have a 64-bit version of Windows, you can find it under C:\Windows\SysWOW64, where the file is named RetroSciFi.scr. On 32-bit versions of Windows, it is probably installed into the C:\Windows\system32 folder.

by Peekofwar on July 11, 2016

Personally, I don't feel that the snapshots do this one justice. It makes my computer feel like a data console on a futuristic starship.

by Ian on July 1, 2016

Very nice, but only works on one monitor if you have multiple display (I have 4)

by Eric on June 9, 2016

by Alright kk cool on April 29, 2016

Where can I find the blue version?! D:

by Z4JE on April 16, 2016

excelent

by cecilio on January 16, 2016

OK as has been said DOES work in Windows 10, only that the preview does not work. This stopped me persevering with it initially.

by Mike H on December 31, 2015

+1 for Monastic Cuttlefish Availability, that gave me a good chuckle for a while!

by Jake on December 22, 2015

blue version works in Win10 64bit, love it! Preview didn't work but the actual screensaver does

by NF on November 11, 2015

Does not work on Win 7 x64. Gives a weird run error (in a pop up window).

by SF on November 1, 2015

Simple but awesome

by Davi on October 27, 2015

Looks and works great, works in Windows 10, not filled with malware. What more could you want?

by Jay on September 14, 2015

Love it easy install, I'm a total sci fi geek and this is awesome.
