Anemona, because it's 64-bit, actually WORKS on macOS 12 Mojave. Yay! BUT! Getting it to run is a chore: (1) Double-click it to install it into your screensavers, as per usual. Not a problem yet. (2) If you attempt to now run it inside System Preferences/Desktop & Screen Saver it's going to FAIL due to no Apple Developer certificate. So, what to do? Find where you installed it. It's in either the Admin or User Library/Screen Savers folder. (3) Do the usual Control-Click (control-rightclick) to bring up the contextual menu to 'Open' it anyway, bypassing the need for an Apple Dev Cert. (4) Now you can access Anemona via the Screen Saver system prefs, BUT! When you use it the first time or 'Preview' it, you may get a black screen. Getting out of the black screen can seem annoying as you can't simply swipe your cursor to get out of it. Be patient and keep trying. Eventually, the thing will stop the blackness. (5) Now TRY AGAIN and it works. My best guess is that the black screen is the software churning in the background to set itself up and generate its. But it WILL eventually work just fine after those training wheels fall off. Yay. - - This same process should work on any old, no Apple Dev Cert screen saver.

I really miss this screensaver—it was my favorite. I've been using it for years but it stopped working correctly under Sierra.

Alas, no longer works on Mavericks. Current vers 1.43 works on OS X 10.8 only. Dev - please consider updating to Yosemite.

It does work under SL. I installed onto my Mini and first time it didn't run. Re-installed and all was fine. Both versions were the same (1.42) so maybe a corrupt pref file or it just needed a clean install? worth persisting as it does run under SL - I have it on my unibody 13" and mini.

Whatever version this page links to doesn't work on my 10.5.8 Macbook. "Can't load screen saver. Screen saver "Anemona" did not load properly. Please select another screen saver. Error: Can't load bundle."

Thanks for adding multiple monitor support, as well as a few options. I'm enjoying seeing this saver "grow" and mature, and appreciate the developer's continual enhancements and improvements. Some color options next would be great! I've not tried this yet on my 30" dual screen setup yet, so can't report on multiple monitor performance, but it's a beautiful saver! Thank you and keep up the great work!

EXCELLENT screensaver! I think it would be PERFECT if it could be made to span multiple displays- I have 2 displays, and one remains blank while the other displays the saver-either have it span displays, or mirror, please. It would also be nice to be able to change size of the dots, and cycle speed. All in all-EXCELLENT!

I love this saver! I've been a fan since I installed LiquidMac to play with the sms on my macbook pro. I have a couple of requests for future developement of this saver. 1. Give the user the option to change things in the saver. Color, speed, trails, gravity etc, should be user controlled, just like in LiquidMac. 2. An option to allow the user to manually control the flow, perhaps by moving the mouse around the screen, and the saver reacts accordingly. I know moving the mouse would deactivate the saver, but this could be an option where it doesn't deactivate until a click is registered. 3. I'd be more than happy to help beta test. I've beta tested tons of apps in the past, and would love to help this saver evolve. (Dev, email me if you're interested at www.macmd.com) Keep up the great work!

I use a two-monitor system, with my desktop spanned, and this awesome (really, it's amazing) screen saver only seems to show on the main monitor. any ideas of how to make it pop up on both? (but not spanned... I'd prefer it to show the same thing on both monitors, like other screen savers I've used). thanks!

A tiny but impressive screen saver with a hypnotic 'crashing wave' effect. This will definitely be on my computer for a while!
