Back in the day before LCD monitors, screensavers were more than a desktop enhancement, as they kicked in after a given time to prevent the burn-in of constant onscreen elements, such as the menu bars, for instance.
zz Pipe is a screensaver that takes you back to a time when computers ran on Windows 98 and blew people's minds due to the semi-random 3D pipes popping up and joining randomly.
The utility does not require installation, but rather you can decompress the archive in any desired location on your hard drive. If you do not want to wait until the screensaver kicks in, then you can check it out by right clicking on the executable file and accessing Test.
It is worth mentioning that the app includes a configuration panel that allows you to select the number of pipes that are to be generated. At the same time, the tool permits you to switch between a rectangular and circular profiles and specify whether the pipes should be rotating or form nodes. The latter options can both be toggled on and off.
Granted, one of the highlights of the classic 3D Pipes screensaver was that it came with teapots that would appear every so often. Unfortunately, similarly to the pipes screensaver of Windows XP, the appraised teapots are gone.
While the utility does not have very high system requirements, it is recommended that you have a dedicated video card for the animation to run smoothly. Otherwise, there is a chance you may notice stuttering now and then.
In the eventuality that you would like to enhance your computer with a relic of the 1990s, but without having to give up the features of latest Windows versions, then perhaps zz Pipe Crack might be worth a try.
