I found this matrix screensaver (with source) for Pocket PC:

http://www16.brinkst...e/ce/Matrix.asp

It works fine as a standalone exe on the SPV (install it, browse to ipsmwindows, rename the .scr to .exe then run it) but this isn't really very useful

Can anyone mod it so that it sits in the background, and runs when the phone's docked and charging?

That's sooo cool! Suppose the only problem is that u can't actually install screensavers on the SPV unless something's changed recently that i havn't noticed!!

You cant install screensavers in the full meaning of it, but you can run the actuall program if you launch it as an executable... It looks damn good! (but I guess it's only 1/4 of the screen.. Would be cool to have it modified to show the 'full' thing on a smaller SPV screen - with smaller symbols and many more of them!! That would ROCK!

Looks coooool on my phone too

Just went and showed it off to some mates at work to make them more jealous (Nokia users!)

Are there any more that will work in the same way i.e. not dependant on a pocket PC size screen?

As was mentioned b4 by madu i think that it is dependent on the screen size but its just that only seeing a portion of the matrix code doesn't stop its effectiveness (ie, you don't realise ur only seeing a portion of the code!)

Or is that what u meant??

I'l move this to software, so more people get a chance to see how WKD this is!!
[not many bother to go into developer area...]


[EDIT1] In fact, I'll attach the EXE to the first post.. Don't think we're violating anything here...

[EDIT2] On another note, I will Not. No hassle this way. Just wanted to save you all the trouble of installation. I personally prefer to just have an exe without running any extra setups on my systems. No need to trash registry...

Now GO GET IT!!!

It's pretty sweet, it can't be that hard to change the screen size and resize the images.

Hopefully somebody with programming skills will sort it soon.

Could it have messages built into it? I've seen it on another matrix scr, so things like "One new Email" could appear out of the code? That would be cool.

unzip the exe and run it from the pc, it'll install via activesync.
