    Hi I'm having a problem with the program Gamesalad. I downloaded the 0.9 version and when I try to open it immediately comes up with the crash reporter. Is there something I can do to fix this? I had a backup of the older version so I'm just using that until I find a solution. I asked this on there forums but didn't get any answers. Also on there website it says in the requirements that you need 1GB of RAM, does this mean that you need 1gb available or just in general 'cause I have 2gb and 1.01gb active with just my browser, itunes and older gamesalad open.

    It might help if you posted a crash report. Include the backtrace (lines numbered 0,1,2,...) for the thread that crashed, and also the Binary Images section.

    Here I put a copy of the crash report, I'm kind of a noob so I don't really know what you need.

    I just downloaded and installed 0.9 and it opened without crashing.

    Try moving the file named com.gendaigames.GameSalad.plist from ~/Library/Preferences to your Desktop, where ~ denotes your Home folder. Then try again to open GameSalad.

    Did anyone figure this one out, as it's happening to me too
    I am running OS X 10.5.8 and updating to Snow Leopard as soon as I can get a copy.
    Was hoping to be able to buy/download it but seems I have to get a disc
    :(

    The suggestion in post 6 didn't solve the problem? Have you contacted the developer of the software? Maybe someone else can offer other ideas.

    Here's the backtrace for the thread that crashed:

    Ok I fixed it. I'm not sure what it was but I upgraded my RAM which I was already going to do, then reinstalled Snow Leopard and now it opens.

    FYI, As of GameSalad Creator vs 0.9.0, GameSalad will only run on Snow Leopard (10.6+)
