Questions about MacOS Monterey Compatibility

Hi there, I was wondering if you guys would make these screensavers compatible with MacOS 12 Monterey. I would love to use the Superman Returns screensaver on my M1 MacBook Pro running Mac OS 12 Monterey as well as the underwater screensaver.

  • The Superman Returns 3D screensaver was created by UselessCreations. The current version of the screensaver was released back in 2006, and there hasn't been a new release since then. It seems quite unlikely that there will ever be one.

    This also goes for the Oceans Underwater screensaver, created by the BBC, probably about 13 years ago. It will probably never be able to run on macOS Monterey.

    Unlike with Windows, where screensavers created 10+ years ago for the most part still work today, Apple makes changes to their screensaver system with every release, breaking compatibility with most screensavers, and requiring them to be updated.

    I realize we can do a better job communicating which screensavers will work with which versions of macOS, and we're working on that. In the meantime, unfortunately it's a matter of trial-and-error to find a working Mac screensaver for Monterey.

    Sorry for the inconvenience!
