I have been running an emulator on my mbp just to re capture the old days of playing with an Acorn Electron! Its been fun! BUT I put it on to "full screen" in its preferences and now every time i open it is hangs. it shows the menu bar and the icon in the dock but it starts the spining wheel and i cant revert back to small screen.

I tried deleted the file and downloading it again but it remembers to open in full screen. I just didnt want to give up on it. I was looking at the plist but kept away.

appreciate any help - its my first post!

Drag it's plist file to the desktop. If it runs fine, delete it. It should make a new one. You will probably have to reset your prefs in the app.

You should be able to find it in your user library in the folder Preferences. If you are on Lion, then it's hidden by default.

Thanks I found them now doing a SHIFT + CMD + G and "~/Library" They do get spread everywhere but located all the files to do with that app and now it works fine.... I can go back to my nostalgia playing ;-)
