10.6: Run old screen savers on Snow Leopard (and Mountain Lion)
Authored by: tupholme on Jan 15, '13 10:13:47AM

I hit this problem when I moved to 10.8 - previously I had been running on a 32-bit EFI Mac so even Lion ran 32-bit.

Mountain Lion always runs in 64-bit so this hint is still useful, although it means System Preferences can no longer be forced (despite the checkbox still existing in Get Info). That means that you can't get the preview for your old screensaver, although you can select it and using the above script means it will actually run when it comes to the crunch.
