Shapes by Bill Stewart.
©1990-92 Berkeley Systems Inc.
Part of the After Dark 2.0 collection.
Again, this isn't one of those really exciting modules that makes you laugh and cry or makes you day dream about all the exciting and wondrous things you will see and options you want to try.
What, that's not what you day dream about?
This seems like one of those modules that kind of had to be included because, if it wasn't, people would wonder to themselves "Self, you and I both know After Dark needs a module where random shapes appear on the screen and nothing else happens. Oh, and self, could there be an option for non-color monitors? Thanks!"
Today, the module works but runs too fast. Still, as there's no real animation, if your wanting the screensaver equivalent of squirrels on caffeine, this may work for you.
SHAPES (tm) fills the screen with a rapid succession of geometric shapes.
Original design and concept by Jack Eastman.
If "Clear Screen First" is checked, the screen is blanked before the shapes start appearing.
Use the "Color" check box to select color or black & white shapes.
Works under Windows XP & Vista in greater than 256 colors but runs too fast.
