Beautiful! But...

...can Offshoots be installed as a screen saver instead of a standalone app? I'd rather give it the full screen to work with than have it working behind the other windows I have open....

Beautiful, beautiful work, though! : )

Hello David and thanks.
As I said answering to a comment on the project's site, I'm already working on the screensaver version :)

thanx for a nice program.
However, the "" stamp in the left corner of the screen spoils quite a bit.
Could you please make it an option to hide the logo?

hi bab, thanks for your feedback. I've slightly lowered the alpha for the stamp and the screensaver version doesn't have it.

Such a lovely application you've created! Thank you for all your efforts.

I love how this looks, but i chose always keep on top to see what it would look like and now it has covered everything and I can't change it, because it stays on top of the preference window. Help!

I'm sorry that happened: you're supposed to lower the alpha of the window or disabling "fill the background" *before* putting the window "always on top". The easiest fix is to delete the app's preferences located in your Home folder at Library/Preferences/net.digitalwaters.Offshoots.plist.

This issue has already been solved for the forthcoming next release.
