Particle Illusion Hangs after update to 3.0.8 (Mac OS X)
on Jan 6, 2009 at 9:37:40 am

Hi,

Yesterday I updated my Particle Illusion to the latest 3.0.8 on Mac OS X. I validated via the online page and after that Particle Illusion crashed. I restarted the application and it then wants me to point it to an emitter library. However the startup screen stays open and whatever I do I cannot actually select a librarie via the file browser so the app stays waiting forever and I can't start working.

Is there a way to reset the whole application? Or does anybody know what I should do to fix this?

Thanks in advance,
Albert Kiefer

Delete your preferences file:

/ Library / Preferences / pIllusion3.prefs

That should fix it.

It's probably stuck trying to look for updates. It should know that there is no Internet connection available, but it may be that the timeout period is too long.

It may also be related to the problem where it won't see any updates or emitter libraries available on OS X (Snow Leopard only?).

You should turn off the "check for updates" option in the preferences if you're not going to keep it connected to the Internet.
