This software has been abandoned, not updated in over two years.

I had tried version 1.4.1 when it came out last year but it had trouble loading its own files (db files). It would launch only after deleting these files each and every time I wanted to use MegaTrack.

With the hurricane season upon us again, I recently reverted to version 1.4 and it works with no issues, running OS X 10.4.6

It really is a pity this app has not been updated in a year.

I am running Megatrack 1.4.1 on Mac OS 10.4.2. I am able to add cities to the Manage Places but I am not able to edit them or delete them once they are added.

I had the same problem. Only solution I've found is to open "~/Library/Application Support/MegaTrack/UserDB/trackdb.script" and manually deleting the place (the place info is in a line by itself). It is not the ideal solution, but since we haven't heard from the developer, at least it works.
I am using 1.41, MacOS 10.4.10 MacBook Pro...

I have given up on MegaTrack completely, it just became too problematic to use. It's a shame, because it *was* good software and there's been nothing to replace it.

On one computer at work, I went back to MegaTrack 1.3 for a while & then re-installed version 1.4.1 and it has been working for me ever since.

On another, identical computer I found a copy of MegaTrack 1.4, installed that, and have had no problems since.

Both are 1GHz G4 Powerbooks. Both had the "cannot open database" problem with version 1.4.1.

Won't launch anymore (version 1.4.1 under OS X 10.4.2)... Emailed the developer maybe a week ago and I am still awaiting a response.

Same problem here. Cannot restart it unless all three "trackdb" files are deleted by hand, losing all previous info and places entered. Does anyone know of an alternate hurricane tracker that works? (using OS 10.3.9).

Tried the program under OSX 10.3.9 but it can't read the database after restart and quits. I have to delete the db by hand to be able to start the app again. Any suggestions?

Works fine now (see 'Editor's Note, above on this MacUpdate page)... uses a *little* bit less RAM than previous version(s).

Very nice app, and I have donated.

From the developer's page: "NOTE TO OS X USERS: If you downloaded the "binary" 1.4.1 before 2100 US EDT on 2005-08-30 you need to re-download the file. There was an error in the build that didn't catch until a few minutes ago and it's uploading as I blog (1-way cable...it's gonna be a while). I guess Java isn't as portable as I hoped it would be (I did the build on a PC). "

Also bounced in the dock and quit. I'm using Tiger 10.4.2. Where can I get the earlier version?
