Thing 1.27 crashing

Postby tordj » Wed Jan 14, 2015 11:52 am

Hi, recently Thing 1.27 has started to crash on me. It didn't do that before, but now it's enough that I move around and resize the windows to create a crash within a minute. I have not made any changes that I can think of that would affect. I've been playing around with Video Modes and restarted the computer, but that is all.

Does anyone have any recommendations on what I should try? Some configuration files to erase or such?

I would first try Thing 1.29, if I were you. I don't think you're missing anything by upgrading, even if version 1.29 has some issues (but 1.27 too). If that doesn't help, deleting the config files would be a good idea (look for a file ending in .i32 for Thing's display config file in a 32 bits mode and "thing.inf" for the non-resolution-related stuff).

Humm, strange Thing 1.27 is working fine on my bee and it's solid as a rock.
I will also look at the icons file which could be corrupted.
So erase and reinstall Thing should be the way to go.

It turned out I only needed to save the settings again and then it returned to stable. :)
