The release of Snapz Pro 1.1.0 seems to have taken care of the outstanding issues with
SP and OS 8.5.x.
- Slithereens - There's a workaround for a problem reported last time. When
some users tried to open Slithereens, they got a message with the legend:
-8300 or -18
Alex Metcalf, of Bubble Trouble
fame, discovered that Sithereens was apparently trying to use new features of the
Display Manager software without checking to see if they were there. Installing
the Display Enabler extension has taken care of the problem for most users. If
you experience this problem, let me know at help@AmbrosiaSW.com and I can send it to
you as an attached file.
- Apeiron - The new Blue and White G3s also have the USB input, so you can open
Apeiron and start a game, but you can't move the crystal shooter at all.
Fortunately the new G3s also have an ADB input, so you can plug in an ADB mouse
and blast those pesky catarpillars to bug heaven.
- I've gotten a couple of reports from people getting random type 1 errors in
EVO when using a Sonnet G3 upgrade card. I've contacted Sonnet and I'm waiting
for a response. In the meantime, if you're using a Sonnet G3 upgrade and EVO,
with or without problems, let me know.
- I've been in contact with a user who reported crashes to the Finder when
playing Swoop and that it wouldn't save his prefs. Disabling extensions
eliminated the former; had no effect on the latter. Then when he switched back
and forth from PageMaker and Word '98, he also experienced crashes to the Finder.
His testing led him to believe that ColorSwitch Pro may be the culprit. After
removing CSP he still experienced problems with his Finder. Further testing led
to the Page Tool 2 plug-in for Pagemaker from Extensis.
Extensis, and they contacted me immediately saying that Page Tools is not fully
OS 8.5.x. compatible. Their thinking was that the problem was probably the Start
Pagetools application. They suggested that deleting the application may
eliminate the conflict. Pagetools won't automatically launch anymore when
Pagemaker is launched, but it can still be accessed manually.
Until next time...
