Just for fun, here's a download of Kaleidoscope and an OS X Aqua theme for it:

The scheme collection on the official page is broken, but there are a bunch of nice schemes over here:

I knew I saved this screenshot somewhere on my disk... I thought it looked pretty cool.:

.

I remember the artist said that he added the "Minium" icon set by Rad.E8 to Max Rudberg's "SmoothStripes" kaleidoscope scheme... but wouldn't release it to anyone (else) because it contained works that didn't belong to him. He e-mailed me once, saying that it was merely a compilation/combination of the two. All he did was just convert the Minium icons from OS X and ported them to OS 8.5-9.x.




.
(i do have this k-scheme, but I leave it up to him to decide if he wants any other people to have it)............ his name is spelled with funny characters, which i can't even remember, but it looked like ConFusion or something.

Very pretty! You should contact the author if you still have his details.

The link to the Aqua theme doesn't work for me.

Fun fact:

By default, Firefox tries to display .hqx files instead of downloading them.

I use Firefox. That's what it was probably trying to do.

I learned today that all of the schemes on the broken official page are available here:

I thought the Kaleidoscope website removed the Aqua themes due to copyright problems.

Here's another site of Aqua themes.

realblack by menou was always my favorite. I made several variations of it for K2.x, but couldn't release it because it still used too many of the original author's work (icons, mostly)

That's some cool stuff... Still, does anybody know if Kaleidoscope can cause any real compatability problems in System 7.5.3? I'd like to know before I go and try it.

I think it is okay. Although some of the schemes I've tried will crash the emulated system (but not, it seems, a real system).
