HayeSavers Screen Savers
So my proudest moment from the years I worked at SGI was when my collection of screen savers was distributed with the OS as a ‘reward’ for if you registered as a developer, you somehow unlocked my package “HayeSavers”, including such classics a ‘space’ ‘keleidoscope’, and my pride and joy ‘hypnosaver’. 

I do not know which version of IRIX they shipped with, and I cannot resurrect my SGI boxes, or my IRIX grey cells from 25 years ago to bring them back. Sad

If anyone has a screenshot from any of them, or even remembers them, let me know. I’d love to know if they’re still out there.

They're also on HotMix 11 it seems.

   

Sorry, all I've got running here right now is an Origin 350 so I can't show a picture of the sceensaver in action ...

RE: HayeSavers Screen Savers
Hi RobinHayes!  Excellent work on these btw!!  These are all very cool - I really like stars and swirl.  Do you recall if there was/is a way to run these as a  desktop background? Sort of how powerflip can run the 3d stuff in the root window - see https://forums.irix.cc/thread-972.html to understand what I mean

looks like Irinikus was posting at the same time as I was :Smile I just wanted to add one more pic.

I am having some difficulty getting these to show up under the "Customize -> screen Saver" - I'll have to play some more with it

edit: ok I looked into it - some of the screensavers names are renamed inside the screen saver menu. i.e. "icons" is called "Symetric Icons", etc - they all show up

RE: HayeSavers Screen Savers
Wow!! Thanks so much to jan-jaap for finding them and to Irinikus for the video!
gijoe77 they all are just straight IrisGL programs so should run just fine in the background. I don't remember exactly how.
It's very possible I put some '-b' command options into my screensavers to make them call imakebackground() (it's starting to come back to me now) try 'icons -b'
