Why is that an issue? You do regular backups, right? Wink

I'd laugh if only I couldn't see that happening here in the U.S. Smile Plus I just got my copy in the mail yesterday. Woot.

No nice packaging on downloads only.
No printed documentation on downloads only.
It is the same reason why I prefer to buy a CD rather than download music.

I back up data regularly but not apps.

You can download music ??? Blink Wow, what an era we're living in.

PS: I haven't received my copy yet. Hopefully monday.

I tried running Toy Sight Gold on my iBook G4 (10.4.5) tonight in preparation of taking it to work tomorrow when someone is taking in an iSight. Unfortunately it just locks up the entire computer and I have to reboot (cannot even ssh in).

Has anyone else who got the Toy Sight Gold prize had this problem?

Andrew. Is it locking up on loading or later ? (we've had issues with the .sit file not unpacking properly with some versions of stuffit and causing missing files).

If you create a blank text file called debug.txt in the ToySight Gold folder it'll record whatever data the game can put out before it crashes.

Thanks for your quick response.

It was locking up on the loading. A complete lock up - could not move mouse or do anything. However I discovered this morning that there is a 1.1.2 update which resolved the issue. The games look fun and I look forward to trying them out at work today.
