Template:TOCright Savage is FREEWARE, please use the following links to download and install. If asked for a cd key fill it with zeros like so: '00000000000000000000'.

If you have problems getting savage to work make sure your graphics drivers are the latest version.

Mac Savage is not freeware however. This is subject to change with XR Cider port. Don't blame us for this, send your anger to virtual programming.
