Functional but breaks the product view
It worked perfectly (in terms of functionality), but it totally breaks the product view...
I had to use their code (found in app/design/frontend/base/default/template/colorswicher) and adapt it to my template.
Recommended if you are a dev and/or can fix it yourself.

Good Extension, Would love to see some enhancements.. see below
Great extension. Has anybody configured this with lightbox?Here's another tip that will help a few others that you may want to change in the module. Now there are 3 things that I am working on that I'm sure others would love to see in this module, as magento's base functionality is so-so.
1) Switch Base image on mouseover (Fix below)
2) Switch the Product option whenever base image changes
3) Configure to work with Lightbox (I'm halfway there)
Those who don't know, copy colorswitcher from base/default/template/colorswitcher to default/Your_Theme/template/colorswitcher.
I then changed:
<a href="#" onclick="popWin('<?php echo $this->getGalleryUrl($_image) ?>', 'gallery', 'width=300,height=300,left=0,top=0,location=no,status=yes,scrollbars=yes,resizable=yes'); return false;" title="<?php echo $this->htmlEscape($_image->getLabel()) ?>"><img src="<?php echo $this->helper('catalog/image')->init($this->getProduct(), 'thumbnail', $_image->getFile())->resize(56); ?>" width="56" height="56" alt="<?php echo $this->htmlEscape($_image->getLabel()) ?>" /></a>
<a href="<?php echo $this->helper('catalog/image')->init($this->getProduct(), 'image', $_image->getFile()); ?>" title="<?php echo $_product->getName();?>" onmouseover="$('image').src = this.href; return false;"> <!--nested img tag stays the same--></a>
this will change the base image to your gallery image on mouseover.
Now, I want to change the product option label when the base image changes as well, so I'm working on that as well as Lightbox.
I configured lightbox as per:
and lightbox works for the gallery image but not the base image. If anybody else can chime in, that would be great, as I'd be interested in collaborating to get this to work.

Issue with Config. Products
When you have simple products, this works perfect. But when you need to have config. products and a lots of attributes then with this no attributes are shown at all, they get hidden :(
Is the a possibility to get this issue fixed?
