Apps / Matrix Screensaver

About the app

I bet most people know The Matrix™ movies, where you can see monitors showing the world of the Matrix, or at least they said it’s that, the only thing you could see is green Japanese characters falling down on the screen. I searched a lot on the internet for such a screensaver, but none of them was good enough for me, so I decided to make one myself, and here it is. I hope every Matrix fan will like it.

You can just run it like any other exe file, but to add it to the screensavers list, copy the “MatrixScreensaver2.0.scr” file to the “C:\Windows\System32” folder (you need administrative privileges under Windows Vista or newer systems).

Under XP or older systems: right click on the desktop and choose Properties, then click on the Screensaver tab. Here you can choose from the installed screensavers.

Under Windows Vista or newer systems: right click on the desktop and choose Personalize, then on the lower right corner click on the Screen Saver icon


By default it only exits by pressing either the Esc or Space button. Pressing the F1 key brings up the help screen, where you can see the hotkeys for changing speed, chain-length, etc.
