If you want to use greyscale you will need to do a PWM mod (switch jumper) and use T2laser software. Head over to where there is a forum full of information and helpful people. You can get a trial version of T2laser there.

Did they make it so that you can vary the intensity to produce grayscale images?

You cannot vary the intensity, but can give more speed for grayscale images
