Does not work on 10.5. Macupdate should pull this or update the info. Waste of time.

For a mac version this is the best one I have found. For free it works as well as to be expected.

For those of you using Leopard or a PPC machine, the older version is still on the developer's web site:

It crashes on my OS 10.6.4 MacBook 2.0 original edition in less than a minute when running and within a few seconds on System Preferences when I try to access options. Is anyone else having problems with it?

I'm sorry to correct myself ... isn't working correctly:
no crashes or problems with options, but perhaps one minute (possibly the raw length of the included fireside-film?) after the time-activated start the screensaver vanishes and gives back control to the underlying system. After doing nothing, that repeats...
I don't find anything in the logs - and other screensavers don't show this behaviour.

Thank you all very much for your comments. The behavior which you encounter seems to happen only under Snow Leopard and seems to be connected with the looping of the movies. I will look into this and update Fireside 1.1 as soon as possible.

Yes, it says 10.5 or later, but can not expect to much for free. They can make it donation ware and make some money for their time and effort. I would give something.

Could have had potential seeing it appear on my RSS feed. If it doesn't work for the newest Mac OS that's a shame some people are stuck in the past. Oh well, there's other software that is out there that will work for the present.

Yes, perhaps I should have investigated further, but when a program is updated TODAY and says it needs 10.5 OR LATER, I think it's fairly normal to assume it will either a) work with Snow Leopard or b) let you know during the install process that it will not work in Snow Leopard.

Sorry for the inconveniences, the correct system requirements will be displayed asap. Thus far, Fireside 1.0 does not run on 10.6. The next version will. (Thomas -dev)
