It's the best looking screensaver I have seen but I think it has problems on windows 10, after it has kicked in once my pc starts freezing up and stalling. The mouse pointer messes up and sometimes turns into two pointers. Everything is fine again as soon as I get rid of Helios. Shame as it's so good looking
i cant get it to upload so..
Awesome! Beautiful on 2019 MBP running Mojave
pretty awesome, but kinda laggy on my 2013 pc (what do u expect)
good on pc from 2016 and above
its a bit laggy on windows 7 home basic; with intel i5.
would probably work better on a newer computer; my device is from 2013 lol
ILOVE it! it is so cool and actually works!
Excellent and VitusTotal detect 0
So I can install it on the PC on my clients.
Wonderful ScreenSaver. Though I have a slight annoyance running it in windows 10 1803 on a i5 3470t integrated graphics. the preview works great. Yet when the screensaver starts after the timeout... the display is a slideshow with 4 second intervals between screens, which do seem to be calculated in the background, though the display doesn't get updated... I'm guessing this is a windows problem, as usual.
I love it, I want it, now only have to figure out how to get it on my computer!
Nice. Works in Windows 7 Pro.
Works great on Win10 Pro 64 with 2x AMD Sapphire RX 480's. Flipping beautiful @ 3440x1440 100Hz ! BEAUTIFUL!
Doesn't work with Windows 10 1803 and Nvidia 397.64WHQL: video freezes after 10 secs
wow!!!! it's like cosmic bubbles and also phenomenal and perfect with intel core i3 7th gen
Really good. Installed on a windows 10 and run perfectly. Thank you for this awesome free screen saver.
G R E A T!
OMG! So Awesome! Thanks!
Simply amazing, you do need OpenGL graphics card driver
Very nice indeed. Thanks.
Mesmerizing. That's the word that comes to mind when I first saw it in motion on my monitor. The pictures don't do it justice - you have to see it in motion.
Helios looks good in the thumbnails, but they don't do it justice. When you see it on your monitor, the motions and color changes are mesmerizing. Really beautiful.
It works perfectly in Windows 10. I unzipped the file, and moved it to C:/Windows/System 32. In my version of Windows 10, the settings are accessed by going to Start, Settings, Personalization, Lock Screen, then, at the bottom of the page, Screen saver settings.
We may no longer NEED screen savers, but that doesn't mean we don't WANT them. :o)
