Default smashing pumpkins screen raver 3,5" floppy

Any more detailed release info out there? It was on eBay a little ago and I wanted to buy it, but didn't seem genuine, as the floppy label claimed it was for Macintosh, but in the descritpion said to insert the diskette into the a drive, which is common for windows. Anyway, you're supposed to inster tthis with the Siamese Dream CD in, and you'll get some nice psychedelic light effects along to the songs, as described in CMJ New Music Monthly from 1995 (just google it to see pics).

oh, here it is again

http://www.ebay.com/itm/SMASHING-PUM...-/290681613466

this link says it's a promo from 1994, but not how it was released. Also, you can clearly see it's a floppy for Windows.

that's also what I thought, the one on the ebay auction looks like printed out, but thanks, now at least I know this a drive letter thing is real. I actually tried to find it on sp freaks but I didn't know what category to look in. Well, I guess i'll try to buy it and try it out on my old mac.

I remember downloading this and thinking it was pretty dumb even when I was 14. I've never seen the actual disk anywhere.

i would be able to pass on this awesome floppy but i would insist on also selling you the equipment need to play said floppy.
the diskette comes with an old pc from 1997 and so the shipping is going to be pretty hefty. i'm guessing that you're in the US. let me know when you want it.

it looks like that watermark is on the picture, but not on the disk itself.

Anyone fancy making a Youtube video of it? No CD drive here, always wondered what it looked like (though I think I can guess!)

I totally had that program, years back. Not the original floppy, though. I have no recollection of what it did, or if it worked on my machine at all.

10 second or so snippet of the song. I think it was used by radio stations to preview upcoming songs or something..
