can you pleese make it for mac

The buttons don't apear for me, what do I do?

what is this

I like using this in combo with desktop goose so i can have some type of peace. Also, are you planning to update this?

Oh my gosh, 

IT'S SO COOOOOOOL


I am OBBESED with nature so that's the best THING I EVER SEEN!!!

Very nice! Can only use it sometimes though because my laptop is slow and old, but i love it!

Here is a way to quit the app, go to your hidden icons button, click it, then you will see a blue flower, left click on it then it will give you an option to quit the app, after that you can uninstall easily!!!

It's so easy to uninstall this. Don't get why people are having such a tough time. 

how do you scroll down in a letter, it only shows half for me

(+1)

do the birds also fly over your open tabs? cuz I wanna install this but my computer has to stay usable.

Every so often a bird or butterfly will land on the tab but that's it. They wont constantly do it

can somebody tell me how to turn this peaceful program off?

nevermind i found an easy way to quit and uninstall

I see some people saying this is a virus because you can't uninstall it. Here's a step-by-step to uninstall it for Windows.


1. Open the files application

2. Scroll down to "This PC" and click the left arrow, click "Windows (C:)" 

3. Click the folder titled "Program Files (x86)" (Not sure if the number is different on other PCS but this is mine).

4. Find the folder titled "Samperson" then click the folder titled "Desktop Meadow"

5. Scroll till you see "Uninstall" click it then an administrative pop-up will appear, click the left one.

6. Do a full shut down of your PC, before it lets you shut it down it'll say it will close 2 applications before you can shut down. Click yes. Then just open your PC again and it should be gone.


Hope this helps, and please stop saying this is a virus.


(BTW you can delete the file after you do this if you 

is this the only way? I wanna be able to uninstall it if it gets annoying or distracting without losing files and stuff. so do you know any other way?

Not sure, this is how I did it though.

i don't have the "uninstall file" 

to tell the truth, this is probably not a virus. Why would samperson just randomly make one of his projects a virus?! I mean, that's just not logical. All of the others have no viruses, guaranteed. (I've downloaded all the ones that are for mac) I mean, just because it's not easy to uninstall doesn't mean it's a virus!! That's ridiculous. And if some virus scanner says it's suspicious, it's most likely because the project puts stuff on your windows and other things, and the anti-virus might get suspicious because of it. So really, I think it's safe to download. Well, I'll be able to prove it once it's on mac (I think samperson's working on a mac version {hopefully lol}...)

Also, I don't get why people want to uninstall it. HOW EASILY ARE YOU DISTRACTED, PEOPLE?! Just some birds and plants on top of your windows and that's suddenly distracting? Desktop goose is waaaay more distracting (at least I think... I can't downloaded this so I don't know...)

whoops I just noticed in the video that the birds are flying everywhere in your desktop... that may be a little distracting... lol

you can easily close it so there still shouldn't be a problem

Damn how i wish this thing could also be for mac

EDIT: i want all of samperson's projects to be for mac(not desktop goose because it already is) TvT

This project is not a virus. Please do not make misleading comments, or you post will be deleted. If you’re having an issue with your computer then you may want to review other software you may have installed on your computer. Because of the nature of the program putting something over your desktop, it’s possible some lesser known scanners may report a false positive saying it is suspicious, but there is nothing malicious in this program.

How could you even know that this project is not a virus??

My older comments got deleted, this program has no viruses before but it got them somehow and they were gone for a little while, then they came back, wich is weird.
 There is something very suspicious going on.

As I said above, misleading comments will be removed. If you keep re-posting unfounded claims against this project then you will no longer be able to post in this community. I’m sorry you had an issue with your computer, but as I said, there is nothing in this project that could have caused that damage to your computer.

what are your reasons for this being a virus?

I've had this app/addon for a while and have no idea why people are claiming this is a virus. (feel free to reply to me with proof that it is though)

The only reason I can think of why people say it's a virus is that you cannot uninstall it. This is false from my experience. From what I know, sometimes the App will fail to install an update or something. It will come up with a few pop-ups that have "Bug report" (or something i kinda. forgot!!) but it's very easy to uninstall and reinstall to fix it. 

The app will still be running in the background whenever you close the pop-ups, you can just go to task manager and close those to uninstall the app or delete the folder completely.  C:\Program Files (x86)\Samperson

I don't know much about Itch.Io but I'm sure if this was a virus it would have been removed by now. If you really feel unsafe with this app, I recommend Norton Anti Virus. It'll do a deep search to find whatever stupid virus or trojan is lurking on your pc. 

Who would say that this is a virus because you can't uninstall it? You are that dumb that you didin't even knew a lot of viruses can easily baypass your antivirus and work undetected. I am getting annoyed.

Great reply! People are claiming that this is a virus *because* of the main reason 50% of them cannot uninstall it. It's very easy to figure out just by looking at the comment section altogether. 

I know that viruses and bypass antiviruses which is why I said it can do a full scan / deep search throughout the pc. 

If you truly want to do something about this app then consider not whining in the comments about it and guarding it for days on end. Go contact Itch.io support or talk to the discord server about it.

This has been downloadable for almost an entire year now. If you have more proof about this being virus other than VirusTotal being your only lead consider bringing it to an influencer or something. 

Is this really a virus? Because I've been wanting to install it but there's a ever going battle between if this is safe or not. Anyways, I'll have proof cause when the mac version finally comes out, I will download it, and then the virus scanner will start working, and if it says "virus detected" then this thing is a virus. If it says none were detected it's PROOF this is safe!


Also, I'm wondering if the only reason there is none for mac is because macs have auto virus scans?! 

This game is so cute, and it's so nice to get letters from other people :)) I think the creator should make a discord though, so that people could share letters that make them smile or that made them happy, and so we could make friends! Just a thought though!

I mean there's literally a Discord link in the description, lol

oh my god i love the idea of this, making boring desktop -> definitely not boring.

Has anyone else's Desktop Meadow mail been acting up recently? Each time I click the bird to view mail, it just flies away and no message is brought up anymore.  This has been happening for two days now, and my wi-fi connection is fine.

yeah, mine does that too!! also, i closed it for one second, and now it won't open. it says the program is still running, and if i want to close it, i need to press the icon on the bottom  right. but the icon disappears everytime i try to click it! 

hmmmm seems like a weird issue
if you have discord then you could try asking for help in the support server
(check the desktop goose description, just copied the invite)

how can ı close this

 

this not like goose

(2 edits) (+1)

click the arrow on the task bar

right click the meadow logo 

 click the quit button

so you mean you can turn it off without deleting it so it doesn't disrupt my online class? cause that would solve all the problems I had with this before installing it

yep you can disable the meadow and then restart it whenever you want

thank you so much

This is really beautiful, I love the art style, how cute the animals are and it's just very cozy with animals going about their day. 

Also, the amount of people begging and harassing you in the comments is absolutely ridiculous.

For everyone asking for a MacOS Version

Samperson is in the process of working on one however he has been a bit preoccupied with other things so the mac version of the meadow has taken a back seat, it will be released.... at some point, also it is a mac, app development on a mac is awful

I would love the ability to move it to my other displays. :x   Any way to do that, that I may not know about?

the only way to do it is to set that monitor as the primary one
settings
display
select the monitor you want
scroll down
check the "make this my main display" checkbox

if you are having trouble deleting (desktop Meadow) hover over the shortcut and right click then press (Show File Location) oh ya an make  sure desk top meadow is fully off from here on it should be pretty obvious how
