Demo not working

Post #1by jat » 04.11.2009, 10:54

I am new to Celestia and I want to run through the Demo - when I click on it through the help menu it is not working - should I be doing something different?
Cheers

Jat,

You can try to press the D key to start the demo.
The link in the Help Menu should work, though.
To help you, we'd need some more information:
- What version of Celestia are you running?
- What Operating System are you using? (Windows, MacOS X, Linux, ...)
- What are the language options of your system? (English, other... ?)

Thanks for your reply. I tried D as well and it didn't work either. I know I tried it a few weeks ago and it did.

To help you, we'd need some more information:
- What version of Celestia are you running? My shortcut says Celestia 151-ED, About Celestia says Celestia 1.5.0
- What Operating System are you using? (Windows, MacOS X, Linux, ...) Windows
- What are the language options of your system? (English, other... ?) English

THanks

Vincent

I don't know that much about the Celestia-ED package, but the demo.cel script file
may have been altered during the installation. You may want to try downloading it
again and placing it in your celestia base folder.
