The following settings are available for altering the behavior of the Gravity Ball Screen Saver.

Setting Default Description
Number of Balls 6 The number of balls to be displayed on screen.
Gravity 0.0010000 A constant used to control the gravimetric attraction between two balls. Note that since distance and velocity units are arbitrary, this is also an arbitrary number.
Mass (Minimum)

1,000

The mass of each ball is randomly calculated between the minimum and maximum values. Note that this is a unitless, arbitrary number.
Mass (Maximum)

100,000

Velocity (Maximum)

1

The maximum initial starting velocity of each ball. This is randomly initialized.
Elasticity (Minimum)

0.00

The elasticity of each ball is randomly calculated between the minimum and maximum values. This value is used to determine how much a ball will bounce when it impacts the edge of the screen. Values larger than 1 will cause the balls to travel gain velocity each time the edge of the screen is impacted.
Elasticity (Maximum)

0.01
