Title: OSX - Preferences Pane?
Post by: Master Fwiffo on June 27, 2004, 05:15:32 am

After about 7 years of knowing I would never get to play SC2 on my mac, I finaly found this, and started jumping for joy.


I restarted the game and set it to 'use fulscreen' mode, and then clicked the thing to keep the preferences from coming back.  But now, whenever I talk to aliens, they disapear behind the text, leaving just a bluescreen and what they are saying, and when the text ends, they reappear.

I figure its a problem with the preferences, but now I cant figure out how to get them back (Ive even trashed and reinstalled it- no luck)

Any help?

The pop-up window that appeared when you checked the box told you how to make it come back -- you need to delete the file ~/.uqm/launcher.go -- the easiest way is to open (in Applications:Utilities) and enter the command:

rm ~/.uqm/launcher.go

As for the blue screen over comms, that is a known issue; there are two ways to fix it:
  • Run in OpenGL mode
  • Update to the latest "Unofficial Release" here:

If you go with the latter (highly recommended, BTW) you will need to download the updated Launcher as well as the new executable.  And make sure to read the README files...
