Hard Rain by Bill Stewart.
©1990-92 Berkeley Systems Inc.
Part of the After Dark 2.0 collection.
I know it's just lines on a screen but like the Magic module and other similar savers, there's just something cool about the Lasers module. I do wish it worked a little slower on modern systems so as to approach what feels more like light show speed but the frenetic pace does give an exciting colorful display.
The actual effect of a Laser line being drawn in this way was not something available in a module again until Magic Turtle some years later. Although other modules were able to fill the screen with interesting colored line using a variety of methods, no other modules went for the single origin point like Lasers did.
Mulit-colored lasers that clear your screen and can create interesting patterns.
The number of lasers can be varied from 1-8.
The width of the laser traces can be varied from 1 to 100, as well as Infinite.
To hear the laser sound, use the sound control (if sound capability is available).
Concept by Bill Stewart and Ian MacDonald.
Sound by Rob Gale.
Works under Windows XP & Vista in greater than 256 but can be too fast for some.
