Mac OS X screen savers (379)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2005-06-16 19:23 ID:/DCn4yVC [Del]

Not to be confused with the Mac OS X widgets thread, this is the Mac OS X screen savers thread (this one's even more useless!).

So, way back in the day, I made some screen savers for the Amiga named "LotsaBlankers". Later on, I ported some of them to Windows, and created some new ones, but I never managed to make a stable and functional enough screen saver under Windows that I'd feel like releasing it. But now that I've got Mac OS X, I've started porting some of this old code over, since making screen savers for OS X is pretty easy and fun. First one I've got running is this one:


It's based on the work presented on this site, http://escherdroste.math.leidenuniv.nl/, and it is liable to BLOW YOUR MIND, MAAAAN. I've been too lazy to figure out how to make a preferences GUI for it yet, so even though the code supports all the possible different transformations of the image (Some listed here: http://escherdroste.math.leidenuniv.nl/index.php?menu=im&sub=escher), you can't actually pick which one you want yet.

Is there going to be a version of Lotsawater that works with El Capitan (v10.11.2)? I love this screensaver and would hate to lose it. I'm running it, or trying to, on a late 2011 MacBook Pro 2.4 GHz Intel Core i7 with 16GB RAM and Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB.

372 Name: Anonymous : 2016-01-23 05:38 ID:arXe/L/D [Del]

Lotsawater works with 10.10.3. Thanks!

Hey everyone: I have a 2012 MacBook Pro (non Retina version) and recently updated my OS X from Lion to Mavericks 10.9.5. Really don't want to update any further if possible (hate the UI changes these days...)

Anyway my favorite LotsaWater screensaver stopped working, so looking around I found this thread and info online saying it was fixed in the latest version, so great!

Downloaded it, installed, and... still broken :(

I saw where it says to fully-delete using AppCleaner SO I tried that next. Totally deleted, cleaned as far as I can tell. Re-downloaded latest version again, and... STILL doesn't work, same problem, can't capture screen image before it loads and only runs on BLACK screen.

Anyone have any other idea what I need to do, to get it working? Again this is NOT a multi-monitor computer, just a MacBook Pro with the normal simple laptop screen.

Thanks in advance for all help & ideas.

UPDATE: Okay, some more info... not sure what's going on here but apparently the newest version of LotsaWater DOES WORK on my MacBook, but only SOMETIMES.

It seems to capture the screenshot image okay when using "Preview" from the System Preferences screen saver panel, and also only SOMETIMES runs correctly (with screenshot) when I kick the screensaver into action using the HotCorner setting.

But depending on letting it just "time out" to activate, that only seems to show a black screen with the water effect, i.e. no screen capture. It may also have to do with what application I have running in the foreground (chrome browser?) that's maybe preventing the screen capture? Really not sure, what's goin' on here... any help?

379 Name: BlueCat : 2016-07-23 19:34 ID:zFhLOQ2N [Del]

UPDATE, AGAIN: I'm still trying to figure this out but apparently whatever application window is currently "foreground" or most-recently selected is affecting LotsaWater's ability to do the screen capture.

Sometimes it works, and sometimes it fails and the water effect only runs against a black screen.

The difference is even sometimes apparently only as minor as which TAB of the System Preferences dialog box is selected (i.e. it works after pressing "preview" in the screen saver tab, but then switching to desktop wallpaper on that tab and activating the screensaver only results in black screen).

This is really weird, srsly LOL -- anyone have any idea what's goin' on with LotsaWater on my MacBook? Again this is running on Mavericks v.10.9.5

Sparkle vulnerability for auto-updating (12)

1 Name: ClickClack : 2016-02-15 07:21 ID:/MFpiy4Y [Del]

Hello. Been reading about the security vulnerability affecting apps that use Sparkle for automatic updating. I do not see any adjustable settings to activate or disable auto-updating in preferences for The Unarchiver. Is there such a preference setting, or is there a simple way to check it and change it if necessary. OR perhaps more simply, do you have any plans to issue an update that addresses the Sparkle vulnerability? Thanks in advance for any assistance/information you can provide.

3 Name: ClickClack : 2016-02-16 03:15 ID:/MFpiy4Y [Del]

OK, thanks. Having now had a chance to read more details, it does sound like perhaps this vulnerability might have had its severity exaggerated at first. On its own, auto-updating is obviously both a convenience and a reassurance. The only odd thing is that some apps do not include a preference setting to let the user choose whether to activate auto-updating.

It still requires you to actually get MITM'd first, which is not that easy to achieve. And if you are, there are plenty of other attacks you might be exposed to.

The Unarchiver, part 2 (473)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2011-08-31 12:54 ID:EvuKrlQD [Del]

As the previous thread filled up, here is part 2 of the The Unarchiver thread.

It is much better to post bugs on the bug tracker, rather than in this thread! Anything posted on the bug tracker has much less chance of being forgotten by me!

So, post bugs here: http://code.google.com/p/theunarchiver/issues/list

Also, remember that if you post a bug about a file that is not work, you must also post the file itself, or else there is nothing I can do about it!

Running v 3.11, DL'd from app store. Running OS X 10.11.5.
Keep getting error messages when attempting to extract multi-part rar files - "part x is incomplete" etc. Extracting to same folder as original files.

Doesn't occur with every set of files, but with most.

Files extract normally, and are complete, when using MacPar.


466 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2016-05-24 21:47 ID:Heaven [Del]

Is this 3.11.1 or 3.11?

App store reports it as up to date, FYI.

It's not, 3.11.1 is the latest, on the App Store too.

I used to be able to open multiple archives at once and select one folder to extract them all to. Now, when I tell multiple archives to open, it asks me for each one, and it's annoying.

MilkSnake is an updated version of my old game Swear. It is currently available only on the Mac App Store.

Web page: http://wakaba.c3.cx/s/games/milksnake

App store: http://itunes.apple.com/app/milksnake/id448050111?mt=12&ls=1

Feel free to report bugs or request things in here, although I can't guarantee I'll add much functionality to the basic game. I might perhaps make a sequel at some point, if there seems to be any demand for one.

There's a new version of MilkSnake out after all this time. I wonder why? How very mysterious!

Version 1.3 changes:

  • Fix broken rendering of Inverse Torus on some Macs
  • Update interface for Retina displays
  • Fix bugs in keyboard setup
  • Other small bugfixes

Xee, part 2 (619)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2009-07-22 10:34 ID:J9qvJKxH [Del]

This thread is for questions and discussion about Xee. Before posting, check that the question has not already been answered in this thread, or in the previous thread: http://wakaba.c3.cx/sup/kareha.pl/1122405906/

There is also a bug tracker for Xee here: http://code.google.com/p/xee/issues/list

If you have a bug to report, it is better to post it on the bug tracker if you can, so it will not be forgotten.

610 Name: Anonymous : 2016-04-29 01:14 ID:Oa+Il5R3 [Del]

Honest question: is Xee abandonware now? I as because updates are so rare and there hasn’t been any features added in such a long time. Simple things, like resize, were promised 2+ years ago and there's still nothing.
Another issue is that Xee still has less bugs than Xee^2. Xee^2 still can only browse images inside the folder by name only. If you use Xee, you can set it to creation so you're not jumping around all the time when you're renaming images. Xee^2's preferences for browsing apply to scrolling/gestures only which is weird and illogical (if you use spacebar, it will take you to a diff image than if you use a gesture to go to a next image).

Anyway, I'd appreciate a honest reply because I'm thinking of removing Xee off my computer and will start looking at other options.


611 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2016-04-30 13:51 ID:Heaven [Del]


It's in maintenance mode, because that is all I have free time for these days.

I should add that Xee is not sold with any promises of future features ever, what you see is what you get. Anything added later is purely a bonus.

Also, Xee 2 has been out of development for many years now.

612 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2016-05-17 19:45 ID:J8CBJSTX [Del]

A small update, 3.5.2, has been released. Changes:

  • Support RAR 5 archives and CBR files.
  • Fix trackpad rotation.
  • Updated Sparkle.

If I open a picture from finder date last opened changes to the current date. however If I then browse to next image while in xee3 the date last opened is not updated. Is there a way to have xee3 to tell me when was the last time I viewed the image. or does any one know of a little wait program that has this capability.

619 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2016-06-12 00:26 ID:IJWOWqdW [Del]


Hmm. This may be an issue with 10.9.5. Have another machine with a newer OS X to test on?

The Archive Browser (168)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2012-03-20 18:00 ID:rFsOye/G [Del]

So, along with the release of The Unarchiver 3.0 comes another new things: The Archive Browser. This is the often-requested version that lets you browse archives and preview their contents before extracting. However, since this is not a program that I personally need, this one will actually cost a few dollars. Buy it if this is what you really need, or buy it if you want to support the development of The Unarchiver!


For now, bug reports and feature requests can go on the The Unarchiver bug tracker:


It is much better to post them there than in this thread, because I tend to forget things that are not on the bug tracker.

159 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2015-09-23 03:45 ID:kD/AHuGO [Del]

The Archive Browser has also been updated to match The Unarchiver 3.10. It contains the same bugfixes, plus fixes for an issue where the app would close quietly rather than open files. The non-App Store version also has Sparkle updates now (also untested).



  • Fixed crash on OS X 10.11.
  • Fixed a bug where the program would sometimes exit silently when trying to open files.
  • Removed file type selector from the App Store version, as Apple broke it and there is no way to get it back to working. Apple does not allow me to tell anybody this in the actual app, though.
  • Added Sparkle updating for the non-App Store version.
  • Fixed an issue that made unpacked application not work.
  • Better support for Zip, 7z, gzip and NSIS files.

  • Added date column to file list.
  • Handle opening archives with huge number of parts better.

I have the Apple App Store version on The Archive Browser 1.11.1 and I uncompressed large multi-part movies using RAR format. This one worked but if it has another instance of the Archive Browser open with a loaded file it fails with a dark red screen: Could not extract the file "XYZ" from the archive "(null)":

See the attached screenshot

This has happened with just one instance open if it has over 100 parts.

Well, another addition to the The Unarchiver family of programs has been released: Archives for iOS.

It is available here: http://itunes.apple.com/app/archives/id562790811?ls=1&mt=8
And the homepage is here: http://archives.c3.cx/

It's much like The Archive Browser, but for iOS. It lets you browse and preview the contents of archives on the iPhone and iPad, and lets you open files in other apps if you have any installed that handle a particular file type.

If there are bug reports or feature requests, post them on the The Unarchiver bug tracker: http://code.google.com/p/theunarchiver/issues/list

(It's better to post them there than in this thread, because if they are posted in here I might forget about them.)

Since I'm not entirely sure how people will want to use this program, I was thinking of putting up some possible improvements I could make, and let people say which one says good on the bug tracker. I will post again once I have that set up.

  • Better support for broken Zip files.
  • Fix bugs in handling of NSIS and MSI files.

There is an option in "config.pl".

Uncomment these three lines:
use constant FILETYPES => (
ogg => 'icons/audio-ogg.png',
and add this line:
webm => 'icons/audio-ogg.png',
somewhere near "ogg => 'icons/audio-ogg.png'," line.

I don't actually have any questions about how to get your software to work, it always seemed pretty straightforward and relatively easy for me. In my experience, just like you said;

"if it doesn't, there is something wrong with the configuration of your server, not the software."

I just wanted to thank you for making it.

According to most of what I have read and learned about perl,
most of what you have done is impossible, or would at least require an eight hour long castration process, with a pair of dull garden shears.

Eg; Kareha using javascript flawlessly without needing sixty modules from cpan, and a gcc compiler to choke and quit while compiling on windows (what I use, usually).
I'm still not entirely sure what Kozakana html/pl is, apart from a rocket on the back of a pig (want these skittles, kid? o.O) I'm impressed.

Mac OS X widgets (92)

So, I recently got a Mac, and being as enamored with Javascript as I am, of course I started making myself some Dashboard widgets. I just finished the first one:


It's an iTunes alarm clock. It'll just start iTunes playing a playlist you pick at a given time, slowly fading up the volume. It should be pretty obvious how to use it.

The alarm will recover after a restart. If the widget wasn't running at the time of an earlier set alarm, it will trigger immediately. At the moment, it can't schedule a power-up for wake from sleep for your Mac. I haven't quite figured out how to do that, but if anyone wants it, I'll find out and add it.

Needless to say, don't gamble your job or academic career on such relatively untested software as this. It's woken me up a couple of times, but I make no gurantees. Keep a spare alarm until any possible bugs have been shaken out.

Confirming this, every once in a while the text simply disappears and requires a refresh in order to get it working again. It floods the system log with "CGPathAddArc: invalid value for start or end angle" when the text disappears.

Just thought I'd mention that I grabbed the Laughing Man widget, it's neat. Thanks!

The Shiny Orb is a cool useless widget, indeed XD. If you accept suggestions for new widgets, I think that it's natural evolution is to become a "Tesla ball" or plasma ball or whatever the name is. I'm trying to say something like this: http:[email protected]/2432714569/

That would be cooler and equally useless!, it's a win/win!. Thanks for the Orb in any case, and for the screensavers and... well, everything on this web. You're The Man.

On Shiny Orb: Useless it may be, but it sure is fun to look at! :D
