Strange Hiding Bug



  • I've recently gone back to an old game that I left a year or so ago, to find myself plagued by a bug that makes the game nearly unplayable. Every few seconds the game will hide itself and switch back to the Finder, which also seems to be hidden when it happens. I can switch back of course, but a few seconds later it happens again. Does anyone know how to fiz this?

  • Whats this "old game" I'm assuming its Cythera since it is old, it is a game, and this is the Cythera webboard.

    Are you hiting command-tab?

    No, I mean an old character in Cythera. I took it for granted that you'd know what game I was playing it in.

    Can you give us a few more details? Are you playing the game under Classic in OSX or under OS 9? If its under 10, there are several known bugs that make playing Cythera unstable, so if possible try to start up under 9.

    Does this happen with any other applications or just Cythera? If it happens during other games, perhaps its a problem with your keyboard or monitor. If its just Cythera, try checking to see what version of Cythera you have and if your character was made before the most recent version. (1.0.4 I think) I do not believe older characters are compatible with the newest version.

    I'm playing under system 9.0.4. The problem only happens with Cythera, and I'm using version 1.0.4, which the character was created under.
