Show Hidden files doesn't appear to be working in 10.8.4. It wasn't working before I updated to 1.1 and it's still not working.

Developer----What is "Display framerate for Cover Flow" and "Show Cover Flow Framerate"? What exactly does this do does it bring cover flow back to iTunes 11.02?

I downloaded it and extracted it with several apps (i believe the UnArchiver and Stuffit were both free from the Apple App Store) and it ran just fine. That is as of Oct 4 2012 @ 9:44 AM using Chrome ( 22.0.1229.79 with a variety of extensions that I'm not going to list atm). Everything looks good as of version 1.0.4. I have used this to: • Show the user Library Folder (if I hadn't done so already by command line) • Enabled the Stack List View • I enabled the "Select text in Quicklook" as I assume that it will allow me to highlight and copy text from quicklook such as snagging a piece of a word document right from the quicklook view (could be very handy!) • Remove leather from Calendar (ML) • Remove leather from Calendar (ML) – Selected No to undo this tweak No kernel panics or errors of any kind so far. I have yet to reboot, but I will return if there is a problem that requires noting. I have only a couple of minor suggestions that I would like to see in a future version or perhaps I could assist you in these changes (I only ask a minor percentage if the “revised version” really takes off in popularity ..basically if I make you rich, I want a cut lol other wise, its all yours). I would like to see a more in-depth description of a couple of tweaks perhaps either a popup box on mouse over or a description section or below the tweak itself. The other is a slight UI improvement. Just make it look a little nicer, a little more professional so that it could sell and look native to the overall Mac experience. And upon further thought, detect the version of OS X the user is running and show only the tweaks accordingly. This would cut down on people complaining about a feature not working, when it is clearly not supposed to work with their version of OS X (MT users trying the Lion tweaks). Try it sure, but don’t complain about it!

After installing, the hidden files cannot be hidden again. All hidden files remain shown even several attempt to restart. Is anybody having the same issue?

I currently have version 1.0.3 and MacUpdate says the latest version is 1.0.4. Going to "Check for Updates" inside the app says I have the latest version. If the app can't even notify me of a new update, I would tend to believe other bigger problems could exist with it.

First of all I will change my rating of your software if you tell me how to actually restore my original settings on my Mountain Lion OS. My iPhoto albums and album covers on iTunes show a semi-red color over them...until I out my cursor over them...I agree with the other users...you option to restore anything that you changed , DOES NOT WORK. Now I am stuck with a library that shows reddish colored thumbnails....WTF??I changed one thing, "Enable iTunes dock animation" and that changed everything...

The Lion version kinda works well. But this ML version was responsible for two kernel crashes. :-/ One with the 'remove leather for Contacts' and one with 'remove leather for Calendar' The restore functions did not resolves this. It took 2 hours to get the 'tweaks' removed. Not recommended (at least for those two tweaks).

Version 1.0.1 doesn't completely change Calendar UI to silver. Fonts on the App's menu bar still look brown. Also, the circle buttons look brown when App is not in focus. Visit https://gist.github.com/3172992 for more tweaks. Just paste string into the terminal and voila.

Unfortunately, the zip file cannot be opened. Have downloaded multiple times. Tried several applications to open (including Expander, Pacifist, etc.). All indicate a problem with the zip file.

Since Mountain Tweaks includes Lion Tweaks, does this replace Lion Tweaks?
