Matrix Mania

A screensaver based on the "digital rain" appearing on computer screens in the popular The Matrix film trilogy, created by The Wachowski Brothers and starring Keanu Reeves as Neo. The speed, density, balance, noise and inversion of the characters in this "rain" effect can be adjusted, and you can optionally even change the default green hues to any other colors.

It does support multiple computers (i'm on windows 10)

speed, color, density, and other options i don't understand can be changed, but not the font size or the font.

Big Sur tells me the 'file is damaged' and won't let me run it :-(

by John on July 16, 2021

Does it work on Big Sur?

Font WAY to SMALL :(

Good screensaver but somehow the animation is very slow on my MacBook. The OS is Catalina. How can I fix it?

by Vladyslav on March 19, 2020

I agree with Damien, the font is super small. Weird that you can adjust everything except the font size. I'm reluctant to actually purchase it without knowing whether I can increase the font. The last one I had (RedPill) was brilliant and I really loved it, but it won't work with Catalina : (

I'd give this 5 starts if it was possible to adjust the font size.

Been using this a while and love it. I noticed it stopped working on Mojave so disabled it and wasn't aware until now that it had been fixed. Just updated and it is working for me on Catalina. Although, I'm not sure if it's a bug, but the rain looks so small. I'm sure it's a lot smaller than before. Unless you look very close, it now just looks like green lines almost. Anyone else? Please could this be looked at?

by Damien on December 4, 2019

Fine but doesn't work any more on Catelina. Please provide an update.

by Jos on October 9, 2019

Yes I have the same problem. It would be nice to have it on Mojave

Screensavers Planet: The file's been updated to work on Mojave. Please try again.

by John on November 10, 2018

Great screensaver however I upgraded my MacOS to Mojave and it stopped working. Please fix as soon as possible. Thanks.

doesn't work for majove which sucks was really liking forward to it

by marshall on October 9, 2018

Wasn't supported after Snow Leopard but managed to still work for whatever reason until Mojave came along. So don't download until developer says otherwise... =/

by Not compatible with Mojave on October 8, 2018

It only plays for a few seconds then shows a "PURCHASE REGISTRATION" mark instead. MatrixGL is free and has the option to create 3D images from the characters (or not) as well as change the color, et cetera.

by monsterhart on July 28, 2018

this is great though can it just be left at the code going down not the popup text and water marks

This screen saver is amazing! I just thought that a Matrix type screen saver would be really great to have, but I needed one for mac. This one worked perfectly, and I've gotten lots of comments on it.
