CGXBlanker is a small ScreenBlanker for computers equipped with a CyberGraphics/Picasso96-supporting Gfx-Board.

The blanker currently has the following Blanker-Modules:
  • Black : just a black screen... ;)
  • Moire : the classic colorful moire-blanker
  • Forest : colorful fractal trees
  • Spiral : an incredible rotating spiral
  • Flower : a very nice blanker which draws several elliptic objects
  • Pipe : a interesting blanker which lets you fly trough a 3D pipe
  • Random : one of the blankers above is randomly chosen (except Black)

CGXBlanker also supports the DPMS energy-saving methods of modern monitors. You can enable/disable this option and control the delay before the blanker switches to the DPMS mode.

This blanker is a system-friendly commodity and you also have keyboard shortcuts for immediate blanking, immediate DPMS and quit.
The blanker settings are easy to adjust with the CGXBlankerPrefs program - this is much simplier than changing Tooltypes by hand.
Starting with V1.25, there is an ARexx port with allows the full control of CGXBlanker by external applications (for example: deactivate it before starting CDBurner-Software...)
