iScreensaver has been updated to version

iScreensaver version 6.8.4 has a number of bug-fixes and improvements, including several bugs that could cause playback failure on multi-monitor macOS Apple Silicon / M1 systems or the macOS Ventura 13.0 beta. Authors who are building screensavers that may be encountering any of these issues should update, re-build, and re-distribute their screensavers.

iS and Ventura Version 13.0 Beta (22A5331f)

Have started playing around. iMac Pro with extra monitor. Rebuilt a saver from Monterey with iS Only problem encountered so far is that the saver menu doesn't display. Any key or mouse movement exits the saver.


  • Hi, assuming you mean the on-screen controls (what we call the HUD "Heads Up Display") then yes, we are aware of this issue in Ventura betas, and are trying to get Apple to fix it (or tell us how to do a workaround).

    By chance, do you have 2 monitors or only one? We've seen cases on Ventura where the behavior is different depending on the # of screens attached.

  • Yes, 2 monitors. No HUD on either. Behaves same. I'll try again when next Ventura Beta comes out. Next time in Ventura I'll try it with one monitor.

  • Just an FYI: Booted into Ventura with iMacPro and no extra monitor. Behaviour same, no HUD.
