It only displays white dots that fills the screen. That's not Conway's Game of Life!!!

Look, if you're getting white dots, then your card doesn't support pixel shaders. That's the minimum for this to run, which means you need a radeon 9550, or geforce fx5200 or higher. Radeon 9000 is definitely not good enough. Once it does run though...using backlight, this thing clocks about 2-3% cpu usage, tops.

Yeah, I'm running an AGP Radeon 9000 Pro Mac Edition (128) on two monitors and I also just get the white dots, and no interactoin.

same here. Radeon 9000. It just puts random white dots on a black background, and crashes when switching between options and test.

Radeon 9200 in the Mac mini ... it puts a random dot pattern up and adds new cells, but doesn't actually run any Life generations.
