Are any of our Goldfish users on the Tiger seed list?

I need a few users who have legal access to Tiger to help me test existing products and new builds.

Hi Yonley,

I'm going to be out of the office for a few days, so I won't be able to reply until next week. What size screen do you have? What are the settings on the advanced page for the Full Screen area? How do you mean it doesn't fit?

Full screen in the application version is broken and the window won't float to the top. I'm going to fix this in a new build which will have some other improvements. Since the application isn't the main part of the product I'm not planning to do a build specifically to fix this problem.

Head in the blue gravel

Hi Jim,

OK I'm not on the seed list for Tiger, nor am I going to get myself one of the Intel Developer units.

But listen, I apologize for being off the boards for a while. I came back to report my observation of a new version of the Goldfish Aquarium for Windows that has very nice blue gravel that the Macintosh version does not have.

I saw it on a few Windows boxes on display at the Issaquah CostCo.

It does looks surprisingly nice, but I'm not sure I like it better than the normal one... Colored gravel works well with goldfish and it would look good in a living room...

Nobody asked the goldfish

Doc

We're forgetting the goldfish. In nature there is no blue gravel. Heck I'm not sure it's really gravel but not some kind of colored polished glass?

You're right, I bet no one considered asking the little digital occupants if they liked the new decorating direction Lifegolbe is taking...

In nature there are no goldfish, only carp.

Goldfish are a figment of man’s imagination. (and intensive inbreeding to produce the various mutations of ‘goldfish')

As is blue gravel.

Since you will never find both in the wild, why not in an aquarium?

Sure you like it, the blue gravel is very very nice. it's YOUR screen and if you like the blue gravel and own a Macintosh then why not ask for it?

Indeed ....

"johnblommers hailing SereneScreen developer and artists - requesting blue gravel screen saver for Macintosh please."

SereneScreen has one developer/artist. Maybe you're thinking LifeGlobe?

Hi all,

Sorry for the silent treatment.

Goldfish will get some attention this fall. After the developers conference I've been tied up.

A Mac User's Wishlist

Seeing GA with the blue gravel got me interested in it again. It really is too dreary with the boring brown gravel and brown rocks (even with the plants thrown in!).

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE give us blue gravel?? So we don't get all depressed by our fish in their boring brown tank and switch over to Marine Aquarium instead and neglect our little goldfish friends??

Even better would be gravel where we could pick the color (I'm picturing a slider like the color sliders in Photoshop).

Also, I have a 21" display, and when GA is scaled up to fit it full-screen, it makes the fish creepy-big. Could we get a little more control over the scale of the fish? I'd rather NOT have the plants extend to the top of the screen and have the fish end up with a little extra space to swim in and have them be a normal, pet-store size.

Hrm.....y'know, I probably ought to post this in the regular GA forum.

The blue gravel is sorta "poke me in the eye with a stick" but that is why we have mulitple backgrounds in Goldfish. I don't think that a color slider would be very effective for the gravel. We could do it, but it wouldn't give you the look you are asking for. I know we are planning to address the larger monitors.
