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!
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!
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 !
This is actually pretty amazing! I feel like it's the StarCraft menu all over again haha, props to the creator Andy Fielding!
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
Works on Windows 10 64-bit. Only the preview won't work.
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.
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.
Very nice, but only works on one monitor if you have multiple display (I have 4)
I love Retro Sci fi :D It's the best
Where can I find the blue version?! D:
OK as has been said DOES work in Windows 10, only that the preview does not work. This stopped me persevering with it initially.
+1 for Monastic Cuttlefish Availability, that gave me a good chuckle for a while!
blue version works in Win10 64bit, love it! Preview didn't work but the actual screensaver does
Does not work on Win 7 x64. Gives a weird run error (in a pop up window).
Simple but awesome
Looks and works great, works in Windows 10, not filled with malware. What more could you want?
Love it easy install, I'm a total sci fi geek and this is awesome.
