Hi there,
I just reinstalled seti@home / Boinc and I realy like the thought behind. What I doesn't like is the new ugly 3d view of the Screensaver. Is there a way to select a 2D view ??

Would be great to get a positive answer.

Thank folks.

It is possible to stop it from rotating, but the graphics stay the same.

On this web site.
Your Account -> SETI@Home preferences -> Graphics Preferences -> Custom -> Update Prefereces.

Graphics Preferences (again as there will be new options).
Set everything that has the word Oscillation in it to 0.
Update Preferences.

On your computer.
Advanced view.
Projects Tab.
Select SETI@Home
Click on Update project.
