Low polygon count sphere? I don't know what you mean by that, but I think those particles are actually blended bitmaps, just like what can be found here:

Thats a cool screensaver, not much variation though. I have not got a clue how it works.

mmm, so it's not a virus!
Then I shall try it.

Well it's nice, but I like using simple screen savers.

isn;t that the screen saver that starts poping messages after a few weeks and you have to donate to get rid of tht message?

if it's what i;'m talking about, it's great

read the damn readme attached to the screensaver!

It says it is shareware, blah blah and how it is created.

Along with a million other facts/options.


edit...And yes it is superb...........well done for posting this thread!

People, everytime you open it there will be a new pattern (well, 4 in total i think in the shareware version). Some look better than the other, so there is more than one pattern.

So, no books teach that?

Why is it that almost every thread posted;
either diverges onto a completely unrelated topic within ten posts
or ends up by people #####ing at each other?

I think your post is unrelated as well..:eek:
