@rlawson Thank you!

Everyone else, we still need someone to test and report compatibility for OS 9 (< 9.2.2)
I'm hoping < 9.2.2 will work, like After Dark does (without needing the "patched" version).

Of those who have tried it so far, who thinks it exceeds all the "hype" you heard about it?

I know I do, in fact it's even cooler then I thought it'd be!

Sure the specific version I tried it on was 9.2.2

@rlawson: Would you mind telling us the specific version number of OS 9 (eg 9.2.2) you had problems running this on so I can be specific above?

Thanks for the feedback guys, I'll continue to update the information above as more is provided.

Tried it on my clamshell ibook with OS 9 and no luck. Graphical glitches, machine ran very slow then locked up.

Works great in Sheep Shaver (support for other modern emulators is likely but unconfirmed)

The screenshots above were taken on Basilisk II running SSW 7.1.1 and on a Centris 660av, also running SSW 7.1.1 - Just to confirm that UnderWare 2.x works great in Basilisk II, too.

This is great. Downloaded and installed on my IIsi running 7.0.1. Good times. I didn't realize it had wallpapers, and screen savers in addition to desktop animations. Thanks.

Putting this on my dropbox so this doesn't get lost again Laughing out loud.

Oh god no don't think that! It's perfectly fine, it's not going to do any harm to anyone's computer! I just had to tweak a few things with it myself to get it working exactly right (at least to my standards). I just wanted to point a few things out so if others have problems they will mess with it a little and not give up.

I'm going to change the wording. I think you do have a point, maybe I worded this a little too strong.

You guys let me know if it's still too "intimidating" after I tone it down.

But please don't be afraid to use it everyone! It's absolutely great and not dangerous or anything!

So many "warnings" of important notes that now, I`m almost afraid to use it.
