demosaver lets you run pc demos as screensavers.
not all demos will work, so ymmv.
released under the bsd license.
download demosaver-1.5.exe (657k)
demosaver includes a single demo (farb-rausch's fr-019: poem to a horse).
you'll have to download more demos to make full use of demosaver.
i recommend the following sites:
scene.org's recommended demos
scene.org's awards 2002
any program that exits when you press escape can be used.
here's the demos i'm currently running (in no real order):
