Another bug Celestia-qt4

Post #1by Boux » 20.04.2010, 10:59

On Vista 64, when started for the first time (but this may also happen when launching a new, freshly built executable) celestia-qt4 does not write or reset properly the registry entries.
The entries are inexistant or incomplete but the more important thing is that it may write fancy values such as a "Size 0 0" for the window and define "-1 -1" values for "Pos" (position).
Task manager shows celestia as loading and running but of course nothing shows up on the screen (zero-sized, off-screen window).

The correct default entries are the following:

Code: Select all

If you run into the same problem, just copy-paste the above into an empty text file, save it as "whatever.reg", double-click on the new file's icon and write it to your registry.
When celestia-qt4 is running, you may have to change back the time zone from "Paris, Marid" to yours.

By the way, the reg code above also works for Seven64.

As a sidenote, celestia-qt4 does not write its reg entries at the same location as regular celestia. There is not conflict between their respective entries.
