Is it possible to have an "Old style" SETI@Home screensaver without all that 3D graphics and stuff? Old good 2D graph. Or at least to give users a choice what they want... Thanks

Unfortunately, not at the moment. The SETI screensavers (of any age) show details of the actual data being crunched.

And for the time being, SETI is in hibernation. No SETI data is being crunched by anyone.

I "made" my own screensaver.

I downloaded a video file from youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTl27QrXB2A

then used a video to screen saver file that just loops any video as a screensaver. so it's not using any 3D graphics and not reliant on the SETI project, just playing the video on loop.
