Predator

Do you love the science-fiction film Predator, don't you? If it is so, this screensaver will bring you that nostalgic about those years also as turn your mac into the Predator clock. Don't worry your mac doesn't blow πŸ˜„ .

It is completely open source, feel free to contribute!

Compatibility

Requires OS X El Capitan 10.12 or above

Installation

  1. Click here to download the latest release
  2. Open Predator.saver (double click)
  3. "Predator.saver" can't be opened because it is from an unidentified developer will appear, press OK
  4. Open Preferences
  5. Select Security & Privacy
  6. Select General
  7. On the bottom side, select Open Anyway

If you see an error message saying "This app is damaged and can't be opened, you should move it to the trash", download the file with Safari, to prevent macOS Gatekeeper from throwing that error. Note that some outdated unzip software may cause that issue too.

Important: If you haven't quit System Preferences before installation and were upgrading from a previous version, I strongly recommend you quit the application after installation, then reopen it, as updated Swift screensavers aren't loaded correctly in an active System Preferences session.

    Thanks for making this, its super cool! I love the Predator clock Idea and how you implemented it, good work! I was wondering if it was possible to make a feature that would allow the user to be able to completely blackout the non filled shapes when displaying the time, or possibly the option to make the non filled shapes a different color than the filled shapes, which then I would be able to change the color to black myself? preview2
