Matrix Screen Saver

Dear FBSL users and guests,

My present for the coming Christmas of 2014 is a genuine animated Matrix-like multi-monitor screen saver written in FBSL v3.5. You can compile the attached sources into an executable, rename its extension to .scr and enjoy it as any other screen saver in your system. You can also run the sources uncompiled, in which case you will have to change the chOption value in Sub Main() manually to select a desired mode of operation.

In a separate attachment, please find the precompiled version of the project that has all its resources embedded in the executable and therefore doesn't need any other files to run. This attachment targets our guests who don't have FBSL v3.5 installed yet.

In any case, the first thing you're supposed to do when launching the screen saver for the first time is run its Configure dialog, adjust its options to your liking, and save them by clicking OK. The screen saver stores its settings in the Windows registry. You can then run the precompiled screen saver in its Test mode or Install it permanently as you normally would.

The screen saver runs on any Windows platform from XP to 10.
