Running Mac OS X 10.4.10 on a Intel MacBook Core 2 Duo 2.16ghz with 2GB RAM and the screen savers do not work: http://img205.imageshack.us/img205/6811/noworkyef1.png

This was fun eons ago, when it first came out under I forget what system it was, it was so long ago. Now, it is dated and senseless. It's like seeing pong bounce around the screen.

Why, yes, they do.

Granted, not ALL screensavers being sold are high quality. I won't be commenting on this set, since I haven't seen them. But Marine Aquarium, for example, is a good example of a screensaver which has had a lot of work gone into it and is worth buying... as are a lot of others out there.

But just because they're screensavers, doesn't mean they're supposed to be free.

Gimme the old After Dark Tunnel module and I'll spring for it (the currently available ones are all terrible).

Those are NOT screenshots. Those are desktop wallpapers, which is what the link says they are.

From their site:
"Decorate Your Desktop !! Desktop Picture Download

"Click on the link that matches your monitor's resolution and the graphic file wil be displayed. Just drag and drop it onto your desktop."

I wouldn't pay anything for this garbage. I could get flying toasters (modeled after the original one!) for FREE.

I purchased After Dark X + Fish 1.0 out of nostalgia for the old Fish screen saver. Unfortunately I have to say I'm pretty disappointed with the whole screensaver package even though it was only $5.

First of all, Fish runs extremely slow even on a G4/867 powerbook. The other screensavers included in the afterdark package don't have as many options as the originals either. And, unfortunately, they changed the flying toast with out an option to just have it like the original.
