RcktMan77 had trouble on 21 Jan 2009
I've downloaded and launched OSXplanet 2.0b02 on my Mac Pro. It certainly is a very nice-looking desktop providing a wealth of interesting information. I realize this is a beta and the developer is young and has limited time. However, my enthusiasm for this app and it's future improvement has Iead me to post here--without being able to find some other central forum--some of the troubles I've encountered with this beta on Leopard, specifically Mac OS X v. 10.5.6.

First and foremost, on my Mac Pro with Mac OS X v.10.5.6 the 2.0b02 app does not graphically remember my main preset settings. I believe at launch it reads the settings from the .plist file stored in ~/Library/Preferences but at times the app by itself begins refreshing the map every minute as the settings have reverted to something other than those originally specified. The only temporary "fix" is to delete the preset listed, add a new one. Then you have to go through and make any changes to the settings that you desire. However, given enough time, the preset settings will again revert to settings that weren't set, and the app begins refreshing the map every minute once again.

The second issue I've noticed is that earthquake data is not visible. The recent 6.1 earthquake in Indonesia never displayed on the desktop; eventhough, my settings explicity state to gather this data for any earthquakes worldwide above a 5.0. Another earthquake recently in San Bernardino was registered as a 5.1 and again was not displayed on the map.

The last issue I've encountered is that the application crashes after an extended period of time open ( > 10 hours normally).

If anyone has any solutions to these issues, then I would certainly appreciate hearing them.

[Version 2.0b02 Universal]
