Hi there, I noticed the checkers widget in the showcase is not working, so I created my own Checkers Widget (Tiger Checkers). The problem: I won't get it Tiger for a few days so I can't check it out in the dashboard environment. I don't want to post it to the showcase until it is completely bug free so could you guys check it out and report bugs/ if it works or not?

You can access the .zip file here:

It will probably be full of bugs.

Disappears on launch in Dashboard, unfortunately. Good luck sorting it out, I'll take a look at the code.

Hmm... I've tried to follow all of apples guidelines (except for design because of the push button). It works fine in the transparent Safari window... If you see anything in the code that would trigger it, please tell me (I'm a novice coder).

Alright, I modified the .plist file so it should work now. Download it here: http://homepage.mac.com/tolson59/FileSharing25.html

The game works well. Nice checker pieces.

The window size in Info.plist, or Default.png size seems too large though.

Hi New to the Board but pleased to help. Loaded cheakers on my powerbook. trying to move cheakers only results in the whole board moving despite selecting new game. Also the close symbol is about 2" away from board

Okay, thanks for the help. I haven't seen it for myself in the real dashboard environment yet but I should be getting Tiger today which should make it a lot easier to fix.

Did you try to drag the piece? It only works if you click the piece then select where to go. I'll try to solve all the other issues once I get Tiger today.

Thanks for testing it.
