IGS Twisted does not work with Snow Leopard OS X 10.6.1
It worked fine with OS X 10.5.8
Anyone with similar results?

Yep, same here (10.6.2). Odd that it works fine in the little preview window but won't work full-screen.

This has been my favorite saver for YEARS. I think since there have been MacOS X, it's been around.

I sometimes catch myself just looking at it and not wanting to stop. :)

Low on resources, so simple but still visually impressive.

Wow, so tiny and so cool too.

Runs fine on Tiger ð 10.4.5, no massive CPU cycles wasted.

Well worth the download!

Keep up the great work with this GEM of a screen saver!

In 10.2.8 I get the error, "Can't load bundle" when I try to select this in System Preferences.

Best screensaver ever. Would be really cool to have a feature that uses ovals/octagons/etc instead of the squares. Or... maybe even morphing shapes!
