'Starfield Simulation' screen saver in Windows 7 64-bit

Starfield Simulation screen saver in Windows 7

The only screen saver in Windows 7 64-bit that I actually like is "Ribbons." All the others are terrible and require way too much horsepower just to run a frickin' screen saver.

What would be great but can't do is put the old "Mystify" screen saver in Win7, because the new one sucks, but oh well.

I was however able to get one of those old screen savers from the old Windows into the new, "Starfield Simulation." It may be really simple, but I've always liked it.

What I did is copied the file ssstars.scr out of a Windows 2000 install I have in Virtualbox on to my Win7 64 desktop, then right-clicked it, Install, and ta-da, I've got my "Starfield Simulation" back!

It's not "Mystify Your Mind," but hey, I'll take what I can get. 🙂
