A pack of five of my Spirograph screensavers.
This is (*audible sigh*) fanwork for Homestuck, but nothing recent.

It consists of a spirograph moving through a sequence of shapes and funny text beneath it, to mimic the SBURB loading screen.

This pack includes:
Spirograph (White background)
Spirograph (Black background)
Spirograph (Transparent background)
Spirograph (Animated background)(Beta)
Subtle Spirograph

All except for the version with the animated clouds background are good for widescreen. Yes, there really is nothing I can do about the animated one. It seems to be a huge system resource drain no matter how its configured.

First, make sure that the screensaver file is somewhere you're prepared to keep it. After you've installed it, the file is actively used, Windows doesn't copy it over or anything, so put it in a dedicated folder or something.

To install, simply right click on your chosen screensaver and hit 'Install'. A good way to test them out is to right click and hit 'Test'. They are compatible with anything higher than Windows XP.

Simply delete it. If it doesn't allow you, choose a different screensaver and try again, if still no, try once you restart the computer.

Rafira, for testing. Hi-five!
Me. I guess. A little. :P

So, I have Adobe Flash installed on my computer and everything, but it says I need to install Adobe Flash Player ActiveX when I try to test or install any of the screensavers. I cant find any Adobe software with that name. The only thing I get when attempting to test or install any of the screensavers is a message saying "This screensaver requires Adobe Flash Player ActiveX component that was not found in your system," along with a link to a website I am not willing to go to currently. Any tips?

I use a Windows 7 computer.

WELL THEN. It seems it won't work because it is not made for the Windows 7. I was so excited to use this. ;-; *cri*

Late to the party, but I can't seem to get it to work for me. I am using Windows 10, could that be the reason?

Totally sweet!

Is it supposed to bounce around like that part of the time though?

i dont know if anyone can help me but recently the  screen saver has stopped working. I installed it months ago and it had been working fine but now all it does is display a blank white screen, even in the previews of both settings and the files themselves (when i press test). i have tried re-downloading but i dont know what else i should do.

I don't know if it's because I'm using Windows 10, but I'm not getting an install option when I right click the files. Could someone lend me a hand?

Excuse me, but it is saying i need activex for it to properly work. Is there a certain version of activex for me install?

As in, where did I get the animation from? 
It was ripped from the flash file from MSPA directly. It's just been isolated and made into a screensaver, but all artistic work here is still Andrew Hussie's.

if you install them after extracting the file, they should appear in your screensavers... at least, thats how it worked for me.
