New version now works on Mojave! Fantastic. The only thing I'd love to see is the savers not switching macOS from the integrated to the discrete GPU. (Don't know if that's possible though.)

It's so great to have these screen savers. They even work on Mojave, but sadly only in their default settings. As soon as you try to leave the respective screen saver settings in System Preferences, a crash occurs. Definitely needs a fix.

Thanks!!! Really great of you to port these screen savers. What happened with the "Retired" <https://www.jwz.org/xscreensaver/screenshots/retired/> screen savers? Some of them actually look neat too. Were there just too many, or were they buggy, or something else? Keep up the great work!

What a nice early XMAS gift. Actually some of those savers brought back good memories of pre-OS X screen savers. Thank you MR.ZIELINSKI for making these available and FREE. I rate this as a TEN.

Full marks to the developer for trying but, for me at least, on 10.9.5 and 10.10 a number of these are still not working. The issues seems to focus around retrieving images from a location set in the individual modules settings. Oh, well.. it would be good though to somehow get these working again.

Well not crashing now though when I try 'Carousel' I get a light grey screen instead of any images being shown. Console reports: 09/06/2014 17:07:54.902 System Preferences[18658]: *** Caught exception: abort in -[XScreenSaverView render_x11]:1070 This seems odd as other modules like 'Flip Flop' and 'Slide Screen' do this fine. Best wishes to the developer for their continued efforts to get this right.
