    Johnny Castaway! I was finally able to get it working with XP. It has got to be one of the funniest screensavers ever.

    If you liked the Windows default, you may like to try the minimalist 3D Vivid sparks.
    Flurry is smooth...
    If you like something a little different you may like to try drempsels :)

    Woah... just tried that Drempels screen saver...made me feel sick!!

    It allows you to have weird moving images as your desktop! Try it!!

    I dont use a screensaver. My monitors go into power save mode after about 5 minutes instead of using a screensaver.

    Flurry is the only screensaver I've ever used for more than a day. :)

    Simple, once you install it, just rename it by putting ss in front of it. So it will look like this ssScrantic.scr

    That's not free - only 25 uses. Maya Paint effects/Fluid effects is free and better.:)

    Yeah, Yeah, we all know that Flurry is a phenomenal breakthrough in screensaver favouritism...but there's another thread for y'all to pour your flurry praises in. Could you guys post something non-flurry for a change :D

    They're looking in the wrong place. Aliens are right here on Earth (MIB documentary):D (I would know - but that's our little secret):rolleyes:

    Bet you guys didn't know Nero Burning ROM created their own screensaver. 3d graphics and sound create a believable environment in the looong life cycle of this volcano on a perhistoric island....this is a must see !!!
