    hi guys...

    can one of you possibly point me in the direction of the welcome movie that you see when you install tiger? can you access it on your mac?

    i would like to play it, as i quite like it:D

    you know the one i mean, where the spotlight goes over all the welcome messages in different languages?

    can ik find it using spotlight?
    thanks

    It's probably within the contents of the application itself. If I can find where it is, I'll post back with it.

    I never found out, what song did they use in Tiger? I know they've used Sofa Rockers and Eple in Jaguar and Panther respectively...

    Anyone know the song in Tiger?

    that was part of the reason i enquired actually!!

    im sure it is on the computer, possibly ikn a welcome type app or something. spotlight searches with:

    tiger intro
    tigerintro
    tiger
    welcome


    yeilded no results in the forms of video.

    In Finder, choose Go->Go to Folder (command-shift-G) then type in:
    /System/Library/CoreServices/Setup Assistant/Contents/Resources/TransitionSection.bundle/Contents/Resources/

    The movie is split into two files, one for the movie and another for the audio. The movie file is stored in intro.mov and the audio is stored in intro-sound.mp3. You'll need to start them playing at the same time for them to be synchronized.

    I knew it'd be in the Setup Assistant.app but I was too lazy to look through all the bundles :(

    Minor mistype there...

    Speaking of funny files and stuff, do you know where the games that you could access in emacs (via Terminal) are? Kinda bummed, forgot where they were and then they moved between OS X versions...

    Fixed now. :eek:

    They're in /usr/share/emacs/21.2/lisp/play/
    usr is an invisible folder, so you'll need to use Go to Folder (or Terminal) to get there.

    For anyone wondering how to play these games, type in "emacs" (without quotes) in a Terminal window. When it has loaded, type escape-x. At the bottom, below the black line, you should be prompted with "M-x". Now type in the name of one of the games (doctor, tetris etc), and press return.

    Bytecry, by Weevil.

    It can be found on iTMS. The whole album is pretty alright.

    You can just drag them into iMovie if you have iLife, then you can sync them up.

    Yes, you just need to go to File > Share, and then you can export it as a quicktime movie.
