    Default Badminton Screensaver?

    Has anyone seen this yet? Somehow I must have signed up for this so that they would notify me when it was available. But basically it's a pretty neat screensaver of a never ending rally. I guess the physics and everything come into play as well.

    It's pretty cool for hours and hours of endless enjoyment.

    nice!

    just D/L it.

    there's no hardware acceleration so the play is a little sluggish... characters and shuttles sometimes "jump/teleport" a little. The footwork looks funny (i.e. a lunge only moves them a little bit sometimes while a small step moves them a big distance at other times.)

    still nice though. but the program added a few buttons all over my desctop/quick launch/systray/start menu etc etc

    I'd like to see a doubles game actually. That'd be really interesting to see how the AI works out. But in general that's a pretty cool program. I haven't had any teleporting I don't think, but the major hangtime make it like Matrix effects for the smashes.

    its the same rally played over and over again in a continous loop. the players have really really weird strokes....watch them smash...its unreal. best viewed at 200% speed and original size
