30 ratings

A mesmerizing screensaver inspired by something you may have seen on your friend’s aluminium laptop. Drift off into a sea of soothing colors while your computer idles.

Check out the web version for a preview flux.sandydoo.me!*

✨ Features

  • 3 color presets: Original, Poolside, and Plasma.
  • NEW Custom colors sampled from your desktop wallpaper.
  • Support for ultrawides and seamless multi-monitor setups.
  • A real-time fluid simulation running on the GPU. Not a pre-recorded video. Not a web app either.
  • Lifetime access & updates.

(*) The web version has a lot of experimental options that aren't yet available in the native version. Send me a message if there's a specific option you'd like to see in the screensaver.

⚙️ System Requirements

Flux is a real-time fluid simulation. It should run at 60fps on most GPUs from the last decade, but here are a few things to keep in mind.

More fluid needs to be simulated for each monitor you connect.

Laptops with integrated graphics have limited capacity to drive high-resolution monitors. Running Flux on multiple 4k+ displays will likely cause the fans to spin up.

Minumum requirements:

  • Windows 10 64-bit or later.
  • An x86_64 CPU. Basically, Intel and AMD CPUs. Tablets with ARM CPUs won’t work.
  • OpenGL 3.3 or greater. In other words, any GPU released after 2010.

How to install

  1. Download the screensaver. Save it somewhere where you can find it later, like your home folder.
  2. Right-click on the Flux.scr screensaver file.
  3. Click Install.
    On Windows 11: click Show More Options and then Install.

How to remove

Delete the Flux.scr file and Flux should disappear from the screensaver options.
