Virtual roller coaster screensaver.

Overview

RollerCoaster is a screen saver that allows you to experience a virtual roller coaster.

From first drop to brake run you'll experience the thrill ride of your life (or at least the best approximation that can be had on Mac OS X). And if the included tracks don't give you the experience you need, you can always create a custom one.

What's new in RollerCoaster

Version 1.2.1:
  • Built as a Universal Binary, but untested on x86!
  • Added SunnyWE track.
  • Other various changes.

While running this screen saver, the ScreenSaverEngine tries to connect to 66.148.25.60. While it may simply be checking for updates, neither notification of nor an option to disable this behavior is given. Otherwise, it appears to be a good littl' screen saver.

DAMARV: I am seeing the same exact thing. It does not seem to work on the MacBook Pro either.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work correctly on my intel iMac. It stays blue very long and then i see all sorts of track pieces flying around in space. Anyone else experience this?

Nice saver, superb! Could do with a few more options though like colour adjustments, just to be picky!

Absolutely brilliant! I've never been on a roller coaster, and I don't want to now...

If some are having tech support related issues, they should really email us with details if they really want a fix. Like the documentation says, there are some known issues with the source code that RollerCoaster was ported from. Also, anyone can look at the source code (though only developers may understand it) to see that the network connection is simply made to update the "confirmed saves" counter, which is global. There is currently no option to disable it because nobody has emailed and *asked* for a way to disable it. Bonus points if you tweak the source yourself and submit the changes. :-)

USE WITH CAUTION - it's jammed my system up (10.2.5). The visuals are cool but don't let it run with unsaved files in the background.

Pretty cool, but after I let it run for a while, it froze my Mac. I had to reboot. That's not good. And silently connecting to some server (who knows what data is sent from my machine to them!) isn't good either. So, it's a nice toy to show off to someone, but I wouldn't feel comfortable having it set as the default screen saver.
