1990s Screensavers: Art Critic

in #dtube10 months ago (edited)


A 3D animation of a person walking from painting to painting is loaded when the "Art Critic" is activated in After dark. Default pictures are loaded, and can be changed to whatever you would like. Though I enjoyed seeing the early 1990s Web 1.0 clip art and 3d images. I let the screensaver play for awhile to attempt to capture all of the images in the default folder for After Dark.

Screen savers in the 1990s had a purpose, to stop screen burn in. Afterdark is a screen saver application released in 1989 and produced many versions of their screen saver app up through the 2000s. I will be showing off the various modules included in this thirty year old application (Version 4.0) released in 1996. Some may remember the Flying Toasters as a screen saver. Or maybe some other, but as an early Mac user myself these all bring back memories for me.

I run the screensavers on a Windows ME virtual machine, and capture the screen using OBS. Some of the screensavers crash, probably due to emulation of the virtual machine. But others run flawlessly. The computers during the days of these screen savers only had a few hundred megabytes of RAM and few hundred megahertz of processing power. Even with these constraints some amazing screensavers were designed by Berkeley Systems and Sierra.
