Publisher's Description

Drempels makes colorful, swirling, hallucinogenic patterns that resemble a hurricane or tornado. It normally runs in your Windows background or "desktop", replacing your old still-image wallpaper with gently-animating visuals, and meanwhile, you can use your computer just like you normally would. Drempels can also be used as a screensaver; in this mode, it goes fullscreen (like a normal screensaver) instead of rendering to the desktop/background.

Hi.. I love dremples so much I was able to install it on my 64 bit Debian linux distro but cannot get it to run because of the "does not support overlays issue" does anyone have a fix for that on linux? any help would be awesome..

Great idea, we all want a cool active desktop. But low quality took up 50% cpu usage. High quality went to 100%. All on a gaming rig, with a ton of power. So bad execution guys. Nice idea someday when we all have 16 core cpu's and can spare one core just for the cool desktop.

THIS THING IS AMAZING!
usualy im a performance freak and i like a slim os, but this thing is soooo worth 30% of mu CPU! im loving it! i cant imagine anything being trippier, more relaxing or pleasant, Perfect contrast to my dull optimized system. May-B something i totally dont need due to performance loss, but its just too beautiful, and i want it.

WOW! It realy works!

Man this thing is awsome! Runs fast on my 350 mghz machine too! If you want to know what it looks like just imagine a Windows Media Player visualization times ten. Really pretty. I would give it a 5 star but there is this one drawback: It only works on certain graphics cards. I'm not sure why it works on some GCs and not on others. But, it will not hurt anyhting on yor sytem to download it and try it out :D .

This program is cool. Trippy animation is always welcome on my computer. I only wish it ran in a dual display mode.

WOW, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this and am happy to see development continue. I used it back with 98 and loved it. I'd set the overlay control to pink and set my desktop color scheme to pink, now THAT made for a cool effect.

Unfortunately it doesn't support multiple monitors and since then I've added two, but if I was just using one on this system I'd use it. I'll put it on my laptop for sure.

drempels...very nice app..runs smooth in all highest resolutions...i run an amd 64 3400+ xp64 256mb nvidia fx5500, 1 gig ram...the only drawback seems an increase of temperature when at it...maybe that is hardware prone ?...

How funny. After 4 years a new version. lol.

I hope hope the time until the next release will be just 3 years.

Altogether its a funny small deskmod.

Another thing about this little program is the beautiful ability to make your title bars, or anything that has a custom color run drempels with the overlay

Wallpaper be damned! And it hides the icon backgrounds. Outstanding!
