Matrix screen saver

Watch the Matrix code run on your desktop

Inspired by the popular "The Matrix" movie, Matrix screen saver is a lightweight screensaver that displays on the desktop the well-known green code shown in the motion picture, as the name implies.

Matrix screen saver does not come with a setup pack, so it is suffice to extract the archive and store the SCR file in the C:\Windows\System32 folder.

From this point on, you can select "MatrixSvr" from the drop-down menu in the Screen Saver Settings panel to apply it to your desktop.

The app integrates several options that you can configure from the Settings screen.

Therefore, you can specify the maximum frame rate and strings length, together with the number of new strings, character changes and random characters. These numerical parameters can be restored to their factory values at any time.

The small tool does not put a strain on the computer's overall performance, since it runs on a very low amount of CPU and system memory. It has a good response time, and the animation flows smoothly. 

We have not come across any issues during our tests, since the screensaver did not cause the operating system to hang, crash or display error notifications. All in all, Matrix screen saver can be enjoyed by all fans of "The Matrix" movie.
