Vines 2.0 is a port, upgrade, and moderate munge of Dan Heller's vine program for SunView (1985) and X11 (1990).
Select any of the images below to see a 1024x768 screenshot. Note that these are not tiny files and may take a while to load.
By default, vines are black and white, and grow around your screen's edges. There's an option to make them grow along the bottom as well, completely framing your screen.
The vines also come in spring and summer colors...
...and in fall colors (but no posion ivy!)
The vine can grow from the center, indefinitely, until you interrupt it. This is a good one to set the growth rate on, if you have a slow box, or especially if you are displaying on a different system than vines is running on. Vines can easily tie up a 10MB ethernet between two fast systems. This one is in technicolor mode.
Multiple vines can grow from the top until they hit a screen edge. These vines were grown using one of the sample custom palettes provided.
