Use some AfterDark screensavers in OS X - additional details
Authored by: emendelson on Feb 03, '04 10:19:55AM

A few comments on my own hint:

First, of course, it helps to run System Preferences - Classic and set Classic to start on login; it's OK to set Classic so it sleeps after a period of inactivity.

Second, the path in the sample script in my hint should of course be modified to represent the filepath in your own setup. I happen to have the "Stained Glass" module in "Applications (OS 9):AD Launcher" but you will probably have a different module and will store it somewhere else.

Third, fortunately, I still have my original copies of the AD modules. But the old ones can be found with a little searching. I don't pretend to know the legalities of this, but the moral and ethical situation seems fairly clear: it seems to me that if you once had a license for After Dark, and never gave the software to anyone else, then your license still applies (morally and ethically) to copies of the modules that you install from some source other than your own diskettes. YMMV (your morality may vary), of coursre.

Use some AfterDark screensavers in OS X - additional details
Authored by: gulmatan on Mar 26, '05 10:15:23PM

Well, I'm on a new PB-G4 OS/X (v10.3.8). My problem is that AfterDark 3.0 crashes my Classdic Startup so, I'm fiorced to use AfterDark 2.0v. How can I use version 3.0 so that i can select my Star Trek (TOS, TNG) screen saver module?

The Star Trek Screen Posters modules work. How can I get mt AfterDark 3.0 modules to work?
