Appearance themes, sound sets, & Kaleidoscope schemes!

I recently rediscovered an old website I had with a bunch of old OS 9 goodies. Since lots of this stuff is nearly impossible to find now, I put the site back up. Check it out, and help yourselves!

A good selection.

I built up an enormous collection at the time. Sound sets from all the movies - Star Wars was easily the best. Untold numbers of Appearance themes too. I did start to collect Kaleidoscope themes, but I found them too unreliable.

Do we start a collection here ? or do I email you a few to see what I mean.

That's really great. Thanks for posting it.

I learned a little while ago that the schemes from the official Kalidescope page are all still available in the form of a user-unfriendly list:

Well, since there's really no other listing around for these files, I'd be happy to add any themes & schemes you still have to my site, so they can be archived somewhere.

Feel free to drop them into the *UPLOADS* folder here:

EDIT: Holy crap, watchsmart, thank you so much for that link!!! I thought all those schemes were lost forever! Very cool!!

No problem!

Here's my old favorite:

It's a sweet sweet steampunk theme. Unfortunately it crashed my emulated system last time I tried loading it up.

Yeah, I've noticed Sheepshaver has trouble with some of the oddly-shaped schemes, and those with custom cursors.

Cool selection! One thing that I kind of miss is the Zelda Ocarina of Time sound set. Those were the days.

WAIT: I found a page with all the sounds used in the sound set but not the actual sound set itself. It can, in theory, be reconstructed.

I've had no luck finding my Sound Sets and Appearance Themes. I don't trash anything so they must be somewhere. Must be on my magazine cover floppies. Grrr.

I think I've mentioned once or twice that this site should be included on the links on the Mac Garden's main page.

Somewhere in there is a bunch of Appearance Themes and such. I know I've downloaded some before.
