Another Matrix

This screensaver mimics the falling green code seen in the popular 1999 film The Matrix, directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski, and starring Keanu Reeves. Matrix digital rain, as it is called, represents the (encoded) activity of the virtual reality environment that is the Matrix, and is displayed on computer screens throughout the movie. You can customize the rain by adjusting the speed, cypher density and font. Additionally, you can insert coded messages into the screensaver, which will be gradually decoded on the screen.

by Terry on August 18, 2017

its sooooo cool

by mazin on August 18, 2017

Awesome!

by Hugo on August 4, 2017

Nice! Like the coded message function.
Set three messages, 'HELP ME!', 'I am Trapped', and 'Please Release Me' - then sit back and watch people freak.... :)

by steve on July 29, 2017

IS this not multi-monitor capable?

by Blake on May 31, 2017

Excelent

by Chris on May 5, 2017

awesome!

by ezekiel on April 24, 2017

no multi monitor support, useless.

by doesnt matter on April 10, 2017

The Mac one is better, its the cam on the screen and produces whatever it sees

by Geoff on March 16, 2017

Works awesome but it quits way to fast. how can I fix this?

by pete on February 1, 2017

it works

by tom on January 22, 2017

Messages display only in alphabetic order, can this be fixed? Thanks for all the hard work!

by Schpitfrik on January 21, 2017

its alright... but better than anything i have had

by joji on December 16, 2016

3 stars for not supporting multiple monitors. Other than that it's really nice.

@Peekofawr: "People, most screen savers do not work with dual monitor set ups. This is the same with stock screen savers." Is it now? Where did you come up with that from?

On my Win10 machine the STOCK screensavers DO work like a charm on an HDMI display and two more USB displays, that is, completely different display drivers, not even the same graphics card.

by mdcclxv on November 9, 2016

this is so cool

by ali on October 3, 2016

its alright for single monitor screensavers but for duel screen it only works on one screen

by SwatMonster on September 28, 2016

Works great! This is my first time using this website so naturally I scanned the screensaver with both F-secure and Malwarebytes and it says everything is good. I was interested in finding more screensavers by the developers so I clicked on the link in the installation folder and it just sent me to an add website. I would definitely be interested in finding more screensavers by the creator. Anyhow, it looks and works great. Using windows 10.

by ChristheKhajiit on August 5, 2016

Looks very good.

To those who are complaining it only shows on one screen, try buying displayfusion, you can set it up to work on both (and even different screensavers for each)

by Immotay on July 26, 2016

It's decent, and allows to add random messages that appear.

People, most screen savers do not work with dual monitor set ups. This is the same with stock screen savers.

Don't be bias; if you cannot install it on your PC, then don't rate it. Just contact them (if applicable) and see if you can't get it to work. Don't rate it if you've never experienced it.

by Peekofawr on July 10, 2016

Looks awesome but sadly only works on your main monitor. So if you have dual or more monitors set up then the others will not go into a screen saver

by Chris on June 6, 2016

This does not appear to work properly with multiple screens. It blanks and works on the primary screen, but leaves the second screen showing the desktop with no screensaver.

by Eric on May 28, 2016

awesome

by mike on May 4, 2016

Excellent! Does exactly what is should, the way it should. Nice options. I especially like the coded message. Thanks!

by opusq on April 4, 2016
