Hi i'm back after a few years but i have trouble getting the screensaver to work.
i have windows 10 pro
Boinc 7.14.2 (x64)
Nvidia 1080ti
3 monitors.

when 3 monitors active the screensaver refuses to start
when set to 1 monitor active , screensaver starts.

This a bug or do i have to set something somewhere to get the screensaver to work with 3 monitors active ?

It's the incompatibility with OpenGL 1.0 that causes this and unless BOINC and all projects that have graphics/screen savers update their applications to use OpenGL 4.1 at minimum, this won't go away. I don't see the projects update OpenGL for this as that's quite a costly business.

The Seti screen saver will work perfectly fine when you use it on one monitor, perhaps even on two. But more than that is just a no go.
