Puzzle Game Dev Diary 3

March 20, 2015

Just a short update to say that I’m still developing my puzzle game despite some serious set backs because of the new tax law. Originally I had planned the Reflex reboot to be for Windows, and probably Mac, and then later for Android. This has changed now and I suspect I will be releasing for… [Read More]

AutoWallpaper 6.6 and Maverick 10.9

October 27, 2013

I recently mentioned that AutoWallpaper for the Mac may be discontinued. I had a couple of responses to my call to see if a new version would be wanted and so I thought I’d have a quick look into what would be required to support OSX Maverick. Fortunately the change wasn’t as serious as I… [Read More]

AutoWallpaper 5.6.3103 and Lion

September 3, 2011

OS upgrades are supposed to be simple and straightforward, but somehow Apple has managed to make a complete pigs-ear of the Lion.

So, what does this mean…… [Read More]

If I could turn back time…

February 5, 2010

In addition to the forth coming AutoWallpaper update that adds the ability to cycle monitors¬†separately, I am also hoping to ‘turn back time’ and reintroduce Mac OS X 10.4 support. Version 4 originally discontinued support for the 10.4 OS because of limitations in controlling multi-monitor wallpaper configurations, and this hasn’t actually changed. However, I am… [Read More]
