[Ignis Fatui] only opens in corner

Hello, I installed the screensaver but it opens in the left corner and there's no way to have it running smooth. Can you help?
Running Mac OSX Catalina 10.15.5 (19F101)

  • Hello Claudia,

    I'm sorry to learn the screensaver isn't working properly for you. A quick search tells me you're not alone, many people are reporting the same issue, not necessarily with the Ignis Fatui screensaver, but certainly with others.

    Unfortunately, I haven't found a solution and I'm unable to replicate the issue on macOS Catalina 10.15.5. The screensaver runs full-screen on a MacBook I used.

    It seems to be a bug in Catalina, so hopefully Apple will fix that in a future update.

    Sorry I don't have a better answer for now. I hope you can find another screensaver in the archive that does work well on your Mac.

  • Hey Rob,

    thanks for the quick reply.
    Actually the issue is with Ignis Fatui and Helios - all others are working like a charm.

    Need to wait for Apple to fix that, thanks a lot for the help!

  • It turns out this is caused by high-resolution retina displays, and the fault is essentially with the screensavers, which don't properly stretch to fill the screen.

    The good news is that there's a new version of Helios available that fixes this issue. I've uploaded it to the site so if you download Helios again you'll get the latest version.

    I've not been able to find a new version of Ignis Fatui, unfortunately.
