Stian is a set of four VGA effects.
Some effects are rendered at only a quarter resolution (i.e. 160x100) and expanded to cover the full screen by only filling one in every block of four pixels. That produces a rather dim output, the Scale4x filter can be used to fill the gaps, producing a solid image, rather than a set of dots.
Renders wavy, blue, diagonal bands of color that scroll to the left. This is one of the modules that renders at quarter resolution.
Cycle and Cycle 2
Provides a brief epileptic seizure notice, then renders nested circles and color cycles their colors inward. The direction of the cycling can be controlled via the +/- keys. Cycle renders multi-colored circles in the default 16 color palette, while Cycle 2 renders black and white ones.
Intended to provide visual effects outside the monitor when one stares at the patterns for a while, though other programs do a better job of that.
Simply rotates the color of the command prompt background rapidly. Waving objects in front of the screen while it flashes causes colored trails due to persistance of vision.
Waterthi (Water Thing?)
Renders a wavy, red, tartan-like pattern that scrolls to the upper left. This is one of the modules that renders at quarter resolution.
