Matrix Screensaver 2.3

Matrix Screensaver 2.3 is unique because it uses the actual matrix characters, no look-a-likes.

Matrix screensaver freeware includes automatic support for single, dual, tri, and quad monitor configurations! You don´t have to do anything, it will recognize your other monitors automatically.

With this freeware, you can also choose color schemes! If you´re tired of the lime green matrix animation, you can now choose red, yellow, white or blue, or even rotate each of them! You can also specify how often to rotate them.
Other features of matrix screensaver 2.3:
* Includes (optional) user and system information displayed at the top of the screen.

* Includes option to display text from a text file (instead of user/system info).
* Includes an option mini-slideshow of images - displaying on a small CRT in the matrix. Cool! You choose a local image directory (supports bmp, gif, jpg, etc.), and it randomly displays the images (smart-sized for the small monitor they´re shown in). Here are a few screenshots: pic 1, pic 2. To find some good images, visit the official Matrix site. To get the best animation effect with this feature, use images at least around 400 pixels wide. :)
* Improvements in the animation logic as well as mouse-movement stop of the screensaver.
* Includes a small digital clock in the top-right of the screen.
