It is a really cool fireworks screensaver even though when I try to add sounds to it it doesn't work. If you find a way to add sounds to it let me know please. BTW, it's a zip file and it's 141KB in size. If you want it just leave your e-mail address here.

In my opinion, this guy has made the most impressive fireworks screensaver. Just scroll down and download "Skyrocket". His other screensavers are awesome too.

Wow, I was just about to say that the link works now, but your message changed right before my very eyes.

So anyway, here is the link again: http://reallyslick.demonews.com/

Yeah, it worked after I had said that. I also installed the screensaver. But it runs slow on my system.

Incase you didn't know, Happy99 was a virus that displayed fireworks onscreen while it installs a worm on your computer.

OK. I got all of his screen savers, and they ALL run REALLY slow on my machine (like a frame a seconds). I've got a P3 450 with a Voodoo 3 card, so I wouldn't imagine it should run slow, but it does. Maybe it's not clicking to use the glide drivers (they don't look as slick as shown on the site).

I have THE MATRIX screensaver.

It runs numbers and letters(or whatever symbols you set in the options screen) in green with the black background.

It looks just like the "MATRIX" they were all looking at in the movie.

very cool!

Do you have Open GL set-up? I have a 16 MB TNT2 and they run really well.

Do you have to set it up in the program? Everything else that uses it works fine.

Hmmmm....

Are you using Open GL with games or Direct X?

I didn't have to do a single thing to make mine work.
