Fantastic! - Is there a way to remove / change the sound?

We always forget to turn off the volume and its beeping and bopping at bizarre hours or unacceptable volumes. An option for no sound would be a great help.

Also, an option for other sounds would be interesting. Something like an ambient engine idle?

System 47 working on Linux

System 47 (both viewer and screensaver) can be gotten to run on Linux. I used the latest WINE stable from wiki dot winehq dot org / Download (currently, and the latest Lutris (currently 0.5.17) from lutris dot net / downloads.

In Lutris, hit the '+' at the top-left then hit "configure locally installed game" at the bottom.

Add the name you want (eg System47 viewer, System47 Screensaver), and select Wine from the list of runners at the bottom, then click the game options tab next to the game info tab you just filled. Hit the '...' beside game executable and browse for it (for the screensaver that's the .scr file). Also for the screensaver, put '/s' without the quotes in the arguments field (if you remove it, it will take you to the Screensaver settings, so you can do this if you wish to change the config a bit, then just hit 'back' to exit and put /s in again).

If it asks you about installing Mono (.NET) or another requirement, let it install them.

Looks like you could configure something for auto screensaver using xprintidle and wmctrl if you modify what you see on the site joefreeman dot weebly dot com / using-windows-screensavers-on-linux dot html to work with Lutris (or not, it might work as-is).

Please note that I'm also running Steam with Proton, and Lutris can use the custom GE (Glorious Eggroll) Proton build I have installed there (GE-Proton-9.4 selected) BUT I think it would work fine without it as well. Heck you might not even need Lutris, that's just what I did to see it running. But this proves it's quite possible, now when will you have that warp drive operational, Scotty!!!

Getting better

Multiscreen crashes at times when coming off screensaver, have got around it by using crtl - alt - del then cancel to bring it back to homescreen, but its minor once you get used to it TBF,
the starfield would be awesome as a screensaver in multi mode, any thoughts on this?
Can i suggest using some other ships though, Seeing the Enterprise is awesome, but how about some others inclcuded, maybe defiant class, Voyager ETC, spice it up a little giving more options overall.
I ave also noticed on my other laptop the sounds comes back on after a reboot for some reason. bit bizarre but again minor thing to get aorund.
All in all though, wonderours work from what it was, keep it up

Freezing on exit still.

Just formatted my computer and downloaded the current version of System47 Screensaver.
It looks brilliant on a multi monitor setup.
BUT, it is still freezing on exit, and now, I can't get out of it at all. Exit just takes me back to a blank screen.
Can't close it with Task Manager, Cant use the windows key, all screens just stay blank.
At this point I Have to stop using it.
Can You please, Please, PLEASE, fix this bug.
I will even donate again just to have this bug fixed, thanks in advance.

System 47 Screensaver Freezing on Exit

Hey there, Still loving the Screen saver. Looks great on my Multi Monitor Setup,
2 x 16:9 Side by side up top and one Super wide underneath.
But still freezing up on exit. I have to do the Old Ctrl Alt Del to bring up task manager, but normally as Task manager shows up, so does the desktop. so esc then gets me out.
It's a weird one for sure.
I love, love, love this screen saver. Been using it for many years. And love the new version even more.

Since the new version install, I am having the same freezing-on-exit problem on one laptop. If I press the power button to go into stand-by and then turn it right back on, it's fine. But I'd rather it just go back to the desktop or whatever I was working on. Is there any fix for this bug?

Just a quick question

Just wondering if there ever might be a version of System 47 that features the NX-01, I think it would be super awesome. Kind of like this image here… 4097acc733b0abffa5e9315de2384a6e.png
