When Windows desktop meets the 3D game
you get drive-in wallpaper - 3D desktop wallpapers which you move into
and desktop icons which you move among.
Explore your desktop in 3D.
Look around and move around as in a 3D game.
Instead of power-ups and players to watch out for,
you have 3D icons and views to look at.
Instead of in-game action immerse
yourself in ROOMS desktop space and enjoy its views
just park your eyes.
Organize your stuff logically as meaningful 3D icons
in a matching virtual reality world
(ROOMS icons are like Windows shortcuts).
Download worlds or create your own
Download worlds from the internet or create your own.
Theme worlds on your favorite game - or virtual den, or office, or
personal picture album - or create your own surreal world.
When you want a change - load another world
(just like wallpaper). Worlds loaded from this Web site
are designed with spaces to explore and mind-blowing views.
We have published a set of sample worlds under the title CoolWare which we
may add to from time to time. Some of these are for FreeWare ROOMS and others
need the ROOMS World Viewer license.

Windows 7 Flicker - thanks to Paul Downing for this fix
Rooms and the Windows' "Aero" desktop compositing system were clashing with each other. Basically, if anyone running rooms is also running the Glass see-through windows on their machine, they might experience the "flashing" of the desktop background through the Rooms Background. The fix is relatively simple, but would require the user to find the installation folder, right-click the Rooms executable and go to "properties" in their context menu. If they go to the "Compatibility" tab, there will be a list of options about half-way down the page that allows the user to disable certain things while that particular program is running, one of which is "disable desktop composition". Basically, this just puts the desktop into Windows 7/Vista Basic mode temporarily while ROOMS is running. The glitching display problem then stops.
