1 – Overview
Even if they look like humans, they are not humans when you see what they can do with pixels (look at Dolphin or Circuits demos). MadShaders 0.3.0 is available with new stunning pixels shaders (in GLSL) in order you can admire their madness. Be sure to have a powerful GPU and up to date graphics drivers if you want a smooth rendering!
MadShaders packs under a single interface the best pixel shaders from popular websites like Shadertoy or GLSL Sandbox. MadShaders is available for Windows 64-bit, Linux 64-bit and Mac OS X 10.7/10.8/10.9 (more information HERE).
MadShaders 0.3.0 is based on the latest DEV version of GLSL Hacker (v0.6.3.12) and adds 10 new demos (for a total of 56 demos):
– Grid of Cylinders
– Eye of Sauron
– Creepy Mountains
– Fish Swimming
– Chain Reaction
– Misty lake
All source codes are available in the demos/ folder (Lua + GLSL).

amazing new demos!! great!!!
Hi, MadShaders with Nvidia cards specifically (GTX560) on Mac OsX 10.9.1 , demos are not running, however GpuTest_x64 . running fine with GTX560 on OsX 10.9.1 , please fix for us, thank you!!
@msweed4life: I will look at your issue asap.
Hi thank you @JeGX, MadShaders is Great!!
can you share what was done to fix the bug? maybe useful for other OGL MAcos developers?
i too cannot run the new version of MadShaders on OSX.
Tried many variations ( fullscreen, command line, tried to resize window ) but in all cases i get a tiny ( like 4×4 pixels ) triangle showing up inside a black window. I can see some flicker inside the triangle and can confirm it changes with different shaders, but it appears the ‘viewport’ used for pixel rendering is incredibly small. All previous versions worked fine.

Thanks for sharing everything…its always much fun to see-
@Mahjai: I uploaded a bugfix version 0.3.1, did you try it too? The bug is in v0.3.0 only.
Works perfectly again. Thanks for your work. Sorry i hadn’t seen the 0.3.1 as these comments still carry the 0.3.0 title. My bad-
Great to play with. We live in good times-
Don’t work un ubuntu 12.04 !
