RedPill - for OS X Mavericks !! Yay!!
The developer has stopped the support of this very famous Matrix screensaver for Mac OS X. Its one of my favourite and hence I decided to download the code and build it again for the latest version.
It's a matrix code screensaver that displays tumbling matrix characters inspired from the movie. Unlike other screensavers this one is ad-free and malware/adware free. Its compiled natively and hence very light over CPU/GPU. The battery consumption won't be much and the screen looks gorgeous!
I've build and compiled the original source code using XCode 5 for build platform Mac OS 10.9. I hope that it will work on Lion 10.7 and Mt. Lion 10.8. If you face any issues, please comment and let me know.
[Update Feb 2016] So far its working fine with Yosemite 10.10 and El Capitan 10.11.3.
[Update Feb 2016] PS: It has a generic icon in screen saver section. In case you are not able to find it, please scroll down and look for Redpill in screensaver properties.
- Download the screen saver from the link
- Unzip it and you'll find RedPill.saver
