frame rate, set the exit screensaver to escape key and allow monitor saving. You
can set minimum and maximum cells across and set simulation rate, which is
generations per second. You can set the background coloring or run it on the
desktop, and set the color of the pixels in the screensaver. You can click on
wraparound at the edges and disable vsync. You can make screenshots or make the
wallpaper of an image that was in the screensaver. You can also set the rule,
which is the way the simulation works and governs what life is created. There is
also an excellent explanation of the different forms of life and the patterns
they create in the help file.like guns that fire missiles.
This is a quite interesting screensaver.
