Chaos Game Screensaver v2.1

Yes, it's true. After years of neglect I finally completed a revision of my popular fractal screensaver program. This incarnation automatically adjusts for screen size and collects all of the fractals into a single screensaver. I estimate that it can generate about 1000 unique patterns now.

Please note that this is a BETA release and still has a few bugs in it. These will be resolved in a future release. As with all freeware, I take no responsibility for anything.
