Long ago when I still used Macintosh, I had After Dark screensaver which included Mandelbrot.  It started at the top level and computed every pixels. When it was done, it'd do a rectangle box to show the next area, then enlarge that area and re-compute it and repeat until it reached the theoretical limit before starting back from the initial level.

Here's a link about this screensaver and a few screenshots: http://home.comcast.net/~hal9002/mandelbrot_set.htm

Is there a current Mandelbrot screensaver that works on Windows 7-64 bits and can do continuous zoom and re-compute?  Optionally one with multi-monitor support (either as one very large view or multiple separate views) and multi-core friendly.

Had a quick look and saw this one on a google search.

The advantage is that this one is free, not a trial version and supports Windows 7.

I've downloaded and installed it, and it's working really well:


To anyone viewing my posts and finding missing/broken links to a website called www.needanother.co.uk, I still own the domain but recently cancelled my server (saving ú30/month) so even though the domain address exists, it points nowhere.  I hope to one day sort something out but for now - sorry!
