Remarks

  • Amount of memory (graphics memory in particular) required by the screensaver depends on number of stars. If you have slow computer or not much of graphics RAM, refrain from setting maximums.
  • Since I wrote a several interesting pieces of code for this screensaver, which would be sin to keep for myself, I expect to be releasing, at least partially, the source code for this thing in the near future.
