Well, Skyrocket IS quite nice. I find it really esthetically pleasing to watch.....and it doesn't get tiresome. There's a pretty wide range of settings, allowing for some interesting rendering. To the developer....well done!! I even think that this screen saver is worth charging a few shekels for, maybe $5-$8. I'd buy it.

I discovered this masterful creation years ago and it still wows me and others who view it. Brilliantly conceived and implemented. Fireworks done right! The whole scene comes together just beautifully. One of the finest screensavers out there today.

I take this back. It gives you a error if you install it, but it still works compatibility

Great job! And as a commercial pilot, I can tell you that your simulation is very good - especially the sky and ground. I don't think I've ever seen those fireworks get quite that much altitude in real life though! Not while flying a commercial jet, at least!

Concerning JWBRENT's issue. Amoung other hardware systems I, also, run an iBook G4 and have found that this saver operates perfectly - sound included. Like him I'm running Tiger 4.7, but at 1.42GHz. I shouldn't imagine that such a tiny difference between our operating speeds should provide any impact on the saver's performance whatsoever. That aside, this must be one of the best (free) savers going!

Great job! My hat's off to the developer for posting this fine screensaver for free. I'll try to send something. There have been some truly solid screen savers of late, including this app, Timelapse and Soundstream. Good ideas and well implemented. If only Gaslamp would be wrewritten for Intel machines now, and as a screensaver?

Newest version (1.2.1) works great on my iBook G4 1.33ghz running 10.4.7 but when I enable the sound, it crashes.
