4.0b1 crash

Just crashes with this log info. I'm running 10.10.1, and version 3.whateverWasLast has been running fine. 4.0b1 (which I just purchased) will not launch, failing to find a menu nib.

edit: I have deleted everything with the name "simon" in it (resigning myself to filling in all the tests over again) and rebooted. Made no difference at all. Same console entries.

Re: 4.0b1 crash

At a guess, is French your main language? The French and Japanese localizations haven't been updated yet, so Simon doesn't work reliably in those languages in the initial beta release. The localizers are working on updates, so hopefully I'll be able to release a compatible version for those languages soon.

In the meantime, Simon will work if you use English as your main language.

You can switch only Simon to English via a third-party utility like App Language Chooser.

Re: 4.0b1 crash

I have a new theory about this; I think I might know what the problem is. I'll release a new version later today that I believe should fix it.

Re: 4.0b1 crash

Actually, I'm a native Californian and my only language is English. :-)

I'm happy to hear about the later-today version. Thank you.

Re: 4.0b1 crash

The new version (4.0b2) is now available. I'm confident that this will fix the issue, but please reply to confirm.

Re: 4.0b1 crash

Bingo! Beta 2 launches without a crash for me. Thanks for the prompt attention to the issue, David :-)
