Beta 3: Importing Old Prefs, and Getting the Game Window to Appear

Solitaire Till Dawn BETA 3 is now available for download from our Beta Program page.

This release should fix Bug ID 4, which caused Solitaire Till Dawn to repeatedly ask about importing your old preferences, even if they've already been successfully imported. If you've been having that problem, you can expect to be asked one more time by this b3 release, and after that you shouldn't be asked again.

Bug ID 3 (No game window appears at launch) is still unfixed, but we have two new pieces of advice that may help you get Solitaire Till Dawn running properly for you.

First, make sure you copy Solitaire Till Dawn to your Applications folder before you try to run any newly-downloaded version. Never try to open Solitaire Till Dawn from the installer window; only open the one in your Applications folder. We've seen the no-window bug happen if this advice is not followed. Even if you do follow the advice you may have to open and close Solitaire Till Dawn from the Applications folder once or twice, and then it should start working properly.

If that doesn't work, please visit How to Delete Solitaire Till Dawn Preference Files and follow the instructions there. The no-window problem can persist if there are damaged prefs files, and getting rid of them may solve the problem for you.

We do not regard Bug ID 3 as fixed, because we still don't know what causes the problem in the first place. But while we continue to work on that, we hope that the advice above will help you start actually using the beta releases.

  1. Can I use it with 10.9.1? I'm so dying to have Solitaire Till Dawn on my computer once again.
