I'm finding the Seti@Home Boinc screensaver graphics not as easily readable as the old Classic graphics. By this I mean that in the Classic graphics it was easy to distinguish signals/patterns when watching them, but no matter how I change my preferences I can't get the same effect when running on Boinc. Even telling it to use the Seti@Home Classic display style with rectangles doesn't make it better.

Anyone know how to get a display closer in appearance to the old one?

I am running Boinc 3.20 on Windows XP Professional SP 1.

>Thanks, but I've followed this advice and while it seems to be the closest to the classic graphics and is impressive the new graphics don't have anywhere near the clarity when watching the screen saver.
