MouseGoddess> No, I'm not the one who made them. As stated in the screensaver description: "This ScreenSaver is an original work by Terry Welsh."
Sorry if it was not clear enough.

i don't know why it runs so slow on my computer. it skips between every frame. it's not because of my computer being slow because i checked and my other screensaver worked fine except for these screensavers made by Terry. In the drop list in the display menu they all have the names listed with(OpenGL) next to it. i wonder what (Open GL) means. does that mean that my computer isn't compatible? please reply if anyone knows what i'm talking bout. because i have every single terry welsh screensavers downloaded and installed but none of them work properly. They all skip between every frame and move soooo slowly.

The first truly different screensaver I have seen (not a variation on the usual)

I have been searching for a good screensaver forever. All I could ever find was the same old bland things. This one is truly amazing. Wow!

You need to check the video card drivers you have. All of Terry's screensavers use openGL which is a graphics programming language. If your graphics card doesn't support it or doesn't do it very well, then they'll run really slow.

Somebody else commented about lockups, and it's the same deal. It's the opengl drivers for your video card. Some work great, some not so great. If they work, all is screensavers are fantastic. They've all been around for quite a few years now. I suggest taking a visit over to his site from time to time, as he does create new ones when he has free time: /Link.

Littleboy, I'm guessing you asked for permission, but if you're in touch with Terry, it might be nice to show him all the positive feedback for these screensavers. I'm sure he'd enjoy reading these great comments.

Fantastic, although I can not use it for my system due to the lack of multi-monitor support.... Runs sweet though on an AMD64 3500+ with a Gb of DDR 3200 and a GeForce 6800GT

Keep up the good work (modding other peeps screensavers that is) and lets see that dual=monitor support soon

Terry Welsh is a genius. He began offering free screensavers back in 95 (as far as I know) as part of his online resume. For those of you having problems running this... Helios is one of his latest works. It does take a fairly robust PC. You can go into settings and drop some colors or elements or reduce the speed... just tweak it till yoiu find the settings that are right for your machine. Some older ones with limited RAM and processor will not be able to run this one.

If yoiu search for Terry Welsh screensavers on google everyone should find some lovely screensavers to run on any machine. Flux, Flocks, Field lines and Euphoria are good ones to try first... they should work on any PC.

Good luck!
