RedPill is a free screensaver for Mac OS X. It displays strips of green alien code which slowly draw themselves on the screen as they sweep towards you in 3D. It may bear a certain resemblance to graphics seen in a popular Sci-Fi movie sequel released in May 2003.

This screensaver is garbage, don't get it. It was supposed to be a Matrix Style Scroll with the numbers that fall; it's green squares that vary in color. I could've created this screensaver in 2nd grade.

Absolutely awful. A waste of time to download and install.

I've had this saver for many, many years... it's my favourite of all times.
And I've used it on 5 different Macs, which with different OS and I never heard anyone complaining about it (if you read what's on the tin)

This version was wrote ONLY for OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.
So, it's obvious it will not work with previous versions!! - So I don't understand the complains!?

The author is very clear about that and he also explains he has written other versions exclusively for the previous versions. (I've had them all, successfully working on my Macs)

Works GREAT in 10.5.8 on my G4 12" Powerbook! Strange because it is for Snow Leopard only and is 64Bit!

Although it is mentioned as being ONLY for Snow Leopard, I wonder why the developer did not make the effort to create a Leopard/Snow Leopard dual-compatible release. After all, virtually every other screensaver that has been updated in the past few weeks has managed to be work with both 10.5.x AND 10.6.x.

If you can tell me how to persuade OS X to compile a version that works on all OS releases, I'll give it a try. I've been unable to find the information on the ADC site.

How about chatting with the developers of other screensaver modules which have been recently updated?

(I know this is not a Big Thing -- it's just more of a pain for end-users to try to keep track of what software version is compatible with what OS.)

Disappointed. Won't even launch on my MBP with 10.5.6, it tells me to contact the developer for a newer version.

Tried it. Sorry not very impressed. It sort-of looks like the Matrix effect but needs more work. Keep working on it please.

Needs work? What are you talking about?!? It looks exactly like the Matrix. Including the backwards Japanese characters and the falling cursors.
GREAT JOB GUYS!

For those of you missing a good and free Matrix Screensaver on Intel Macs, you can get "GLMatrix", which is included in the port of the Unix-Xscreensaver package available here: http://www.jwz.org/xscreensaver/download.html

It looks very similiar and runs great.
