I'm loving Electric Sheep a lot so far. My only complaint really is the fact that it seems it spends most of its time transitioning between sheep. As soon as it gets to a sheep it's BAM! transitioning again. Only occasionally does it stop at one long enough to let you view it. While the transitions are quite fascinating sometimes I wish it would just stop so I could see some of the sheep.
I have it set at 3 loops in options and I'm running it at 60 fps. My hardware is dual 9800 GT's (Nvidia) with an X9650 (Intel) quad core processor factory over-clocked @ 3.67 GHz and 8 GB's of RAM running on Vista Ultimate 64x.
Over-muscled maybe? But I see the setting in options for multi-core and it's checked so the developers have foreseen this. I have tried turning the fps down. Default was at 23. 20-30 is bearable but still noticeably slow. 15. No thanks. 60 is smooth like butter and I love it.
Anyone else have an answer for this? I hope so. Regardless, I'll be using this for a long time to come I expect and as soon as I can find a new job out here in the middle of nowhere USA I will certainly be donating. Awesome program and best screensaver I have seen (and it's even free to boot!?!?!?) :) Gotta love it! Now if only I could get it to sync to music like in media player or winamp cuz this beats the socks off those too.
