Great screen saver.
fanastic. simply copy to windows\system32 folder and restart. you will find the matrix screensaver option inside screen saver settings window.
I wanted to pretend to be in the matrix, googled "matrix screen saver". Followed the instructions and boom, I was done. I was little skeptical at first as I was reading a few comments that mentioned they were unsuccessful and faced some wrong turns. I am not a computer expert, but this has to be the easiest setup ever. I also have a couple of malware and virus protection software and did not detect any foul play.
If you are a TLDR type person. READ HERE. (follow and READ instructions.)
"Simple to install if you take the time to read the directions and follow them."
Great! Works as intended! Downloaded to my Downloads folder at first, and then the Readme says to just place it in the windows directory. So I did, went to my screensaver settings, and it pops up right in the dropdown menu! The options are perfectly simple to mess with, and it looks legit! Matches my faux matrix rain idle colors on my SteelSeries keyboard. Thanks for the simple, and easy/user-friendly work!
Excellent. And I like it because it installs into the Windows screensaver settings. Just fabulous!
It's mighty fine!
Make colors bright please
A very nice screensaver, the 1st Matrixreste an event.
Easy to install, you unzip the file, then right click and choose Install.
Terrible, you have to hack the matrix to get it to work. Needles to say it does not work unless you do several things to your files, and if you can follow the steps provided that are entirely inaccurate and unhelpful. You can't just download and select in settings. An install sequence of a path of installation would be greatly beneficial.
Install option not showing!
This is a really cool screensaver, works great for Windows 11.
Impressive Work Sir!
work fin with 2 screen and we can add a massege, GOOD WORK
The author has a newer version on his site which is as good as this, but has some extra features.
work with multiple monitors
you can change speed,color, density, font size, and put a secret word that will sliglty appear on the screen,
I'm running a 38 inch curve at 4k resolution and this looks so damn good and the fact that there are settings for this screensaver makes this much more than just a plain screensaver. Easy to copy into the windows system32 folder and works like charm! Thank you
This screensaver is great! Simple but yet fully functional.
Uses around 12% CPU and 12% GPU at most.
It works. Thanks a lot! Could you please also provide some help for using thise screensaver as a desktop background?
I Love it Thank You
Something is "weird" with it, as after installation and tweaking to get it as i wanted it, all seemed fine. Though after reboot it's gone, the file itself is gone (except the downloadzip that i saved elsewhere) and the screensavers are off (got a different set than i had before, and no the matrix one isn't one of them, it seems like the old standard ones, though I deleted the windows ones which now have returned and ones that i could use before have disappeared).
I doubt it's a blackhat (114.5k dl's) and IF it is, the guy/gal is in for a suprise, was deemed a soft target at some point ages ago, had TAO in my network since (one of the "happy few" who got a SIGNINT msg). So if you're out there and this is malware of any sort - gl and i hope you make it out (note, not sarcasm).
Still 2 stars - for as long as it worked it looked as supposed and was well nice.
I am very impressed....!
Bit jerky on a 3 screen set up but a lot of fun to have, I need to watch the matrix again.
-No install. just copy paste in Windows/system32
-Can have different colours
-Can change speed
simply perfect! no download huzzle, just a simple copy process, simple setting and best of all, it supports multiple display!!!!
Just great one.
pretty cool. straightforward practical and free
Simply awesome !
Great until it actually fills three screens, then it comes to a crawl.
Pretty brilliant. thanks for sharing.
Meh... I guess its ok.
Absolutely LOVE it :)
It is soooooooooooo good I will download it.
i love this screen saver it is so cool because it's just like the movie that i have on dvd and it is so cool i love the way that it move's on my laptop computer thank you for showing me this screen saver i love it alot.
Has worked well and as advertised on all of my PC's (8) at the moment. I like being able to add your own message like but the words seem to come in random order. I wish you could have it appear in the order written. Simple to install if you take the time to read the directions and follow them.
i wish you could have add options to change the colors. i love it coz it response so fast. thanks
I like it but hitting install brings up the screen saver option but I am unable to use it. It does not add the screensaver to the menu Please help
Cool screen saver!
The lines that fall on the matrix film have different speeds.
In this ScreenSaver the line speeds are exactly the same.
Apart from this flaw, ScreenSaver is good.
I like it
I Really Like This Screen Saver It looks Really Cool & its Hard to Find a Good Screen Saver That Works Good With my monitor set up as i Run a 3+1 Monitors a 5760X1080 in nvidia surround for all my flight & Race Sims & a 1440p@144Hz For Every Thing Else all are 27' Panels & Like i said its a pain to find a good one that works & looks as good as this one and it Even let me add in the text The Matrix Has You or Follow The White Rabbit &again it looks really cool ..but then again im a bit of a matrix fanboy..lol.! I Just Want to say a Big Thank You to Who Ever Worked on this i think ya did a Great Job & Thanks Again !
This one is awesome always wanted it so thanks again
es muy bueno... en comparación con otros que descargue. lo recomiendo.
Looks great - reminds me of the first movie. Simple and no nonsense. Runs great on Windows 10, HP I5 laptop bought a week ago. Thank you for providing this awesome software for free. Neo would have wanted it that way.
how do i get this to work for my laptop windows 10
works great on dual monitor windows 10. coded message option available in settings. colour can be changed from green to other colours too.
i love matrix screen saver
It's blurry and all the numbers, letters and symbols are backwards.
Absolutely Brilliant :D :D :D
I think it`s awesome, i`ve installed in the past and it works great!!
its so nice
This screensaver is awesome, but then the speed setting that can set to slowest, it is still way too fast, and the font that can allow is too small.....
any kind soul out there can improves it?
Amazing, thank you.
Just like the real thing! I half expect agent Smith to knock on my bedroom door. Try the 3D Matrix too...
AWESOME!! LUV IT!! Thnx for creating!
Really like the settings for speed and density! Gr8 customizations!
Great screensaver! Works beautifully with my multiple monitor setup. Even sent it to my brother to install!
Love it, one of the first things I install on a fresh machine
Works great on Win 7 and three monitors
Works great on my windows 10 64 bit w/ multiple screens.
Does not work with multiple screens :(
I loved it, it's just beautiful and customizable.
It's pretty good
Ok this seems to work...;)
This Matrix screensaver is only 90k and runs efficiently. It has a good selection of settings. I copied the matrix.scr file to my C:\Windows\SysWOW64 folder and it runs fine in Windows 10 64-bit. Multiple monitors are supported. This is a good choice.
Great screensaver. Tons of settings. Absolutely get this if you're looking for a Matrix screensaver.
This is an awesome screensaver. It's free, has support for multiple monitors and has a wide range of settings to change, including text color and font. I recommend this screensaver for those looking for a good matrix screensaver that has multi monitor support. Thumbs up from me!
