After Dark: Flying Toasters
A recreation of the Flying Toasters screensaver that was part of the After Dark series of original screensavers for the Apple Mac operating system. Bread toasters with wings and toasted slices of bread fly through the screen against a solid black background.

It's great. Have it working on an M1 Mac running MacOS Monterey (12.6 at moment of typing), and running on a Windows 11 machine too (just need to make sure the screensaver is copied across to the where the screensaver files live in Win 11).
I haven't been able to get the Mac version running on an M1 Mac. I recently installed it on a couple Macs, both with Monterey, but one with an Intel i3 and the other with an Apple M1 processor. It works on the Intel Mac but not on the M1 Mac (on the M1, it says it's not compatible with the system and I'd have to contact the developer to get a newer version). I suspect it's only an Intel executable.
it's simple, and nice
Doesn't work in Monterey (macOS 12), but did work in Big Sur (macOS 11)
Beautiful! So nice to have a little bit of AfterDark on my screen again! Thank you!!! Can you add customizations like in the original?
Downloaded the mac version on linux>pulled index.html out of exec package>open in txt edit>ooooo million setting Flyin' Toaster power waster! -Awesome.
Sucks- no music or sound
Works on Big Sur, you just have to launch it from the screensaver folder then allow it to be ran in the security settings.
does not work on second monitor like i need
ummm maybe update this so it actually works with Big Sur
great preview tho....edit....second download worked fine.
Works on windows 10, but doesn't really handle 4k displays that well.
Nostalgia at its finest!
I nearly wept when I got this to work on my laptop and external monitor; I can't believe how long it's been since I had the first version of After Dark! and how much I've missed it. The best dose of nostalgia I've had in a while!

Doesn't work if you're using nVidia surround
For the first time in 20 years, I have flying toasters on my computer! It takes me back to high school and installing After Dark onto my 386SX-16 with a whopping TWO MEGABYTES of RAM (!) and watching those toasters stutter and jerk across the screen; today they glide effortlessly across the screen on my dual core i5 MacBook Pro. My, how times have changed...
Yep. definitely loved it in the early 90s on my Quadra when working at an oil company in Lagos. Great stuff!!!
The screen saver is very nice. I wished there would be all the other afterdeck modules incl. Disney and StarTreck available for MacOS X. My only problem in Mac Catalina is that every once in a while the system pops up and requests to move the screensaver to the Trash Bin since from an unidentified developer. Although I go to the privacy settings preferences to allow opening the screensaver, it happens over and over again. Its a bit disturbing. Any one has the same issues and maybe a solution to this problem?
It's not codesigned. Therefore, I can't trust it on my system. Very disappointed.
Works great for me on my MBP running 10.15.4 - across my 30" Cinema Display and 2 x 27" 1080i screens all at once!
Shame there's no configurable settings - so a star off for that.
But otherwise I'm awash with nostalgia!
Reminds me of my childhood. You should allow for multiple monitor settings, though.
Great screensaver. No settings, alas. But it's free and works on Catalina! I like the retro stuff. This a feel-good screensaver.
Sadly doesn't work on XP for me :/ 2 stars
Major Love for Flying Toasters. Really Relax My Mind.
Fantastic. I wish operating systems had more character like they did in the good old days. Nowadays everything is so sterile and there's no way at all to add personal touches to your environment. Sad. But this screensaver really helps bring back the memories of better OS days. Very, very well done.
Great to have a FREE version that works with Windows 10.
(I have home version with all updates as of 7/2019).
Installed and worked no problems.
great! pity that you haven't any personalization about dimensions, speed... but ok, it's freeware :)
I think they are a great piece of art and they are very much missed, I flourished with them growing up with Windows 3.0, 98 and XP.
I would also like to see an updated Free Agent Screen savers like Morface, On Patrol, etc...
Nice touch of nostalgia - works fine on Mojave. (OS 10.14)
Great Screensaver! Only Problem is that it Does Not Work on Mac OS 10.6.8.
Not optimized for 4k screen. The instants of the toasters disappear before they are out of the screen, and none of them reaches the bottom left of the screen.
Its Does Not Have Any Of The Customization The Original Had
Works perfectly on Mac OS on both single and multiple display setups.
Sadly does not work on multiple monitors, and doesn't even make the second monitor black, wanted to like this, but that's unfortunate :-(
Very nice. It reminds on former times working with Windows XP. Now I have installed the screensaver to Windows 10 Pro x64 Version 1709. To install the screensaver copy the scr-file to C:\Windows\System32. To activate goto settings-personalization-lockscreen, scroll to last entry: settings screensaver.
Thank you! Really well executed/ported. I missed it! Works great!
Still have the original CD and run it on my XP machine. Shortly updating my machine and hope I can get it to run on Windows 10.
I like the falling bouncing balls (Marbles) the best.
Thank you for bringing this back!
THIS IS SO GREAT! Thank you for porting this over! :))))
Great thing, finally!
Suggestions for a new version:
user can use a configuration menue to define
- background image and foreground image (that reflects on toasters)
- light brightness and adjust color (affects flying items only)
- light location (affects flying items only)
nostalgia, nice nostalgia
I can watch it forever, like I used to do. Toasters fly a bit too smoothly, though.
Pretty good. In fact I love it! Except - no sound. I miss the Flying Toasters anthem
Flying out of the sun
The smell of toast is in the air
When there's a job to be done
The Flying Toasters will be there!
OMG the nostalgia! Runs so smoothly too.
Reminds me good memories!
