#39 Tungsten: freezes going to Sky Map

Hires (4)
Rob Luke

Hi, I have installed Astro 2.5 on my Palm Tungsten T
and have some comments:
1. I does not let me select a catalog (I have 3
available on the Palm)
2. May be related to 1., but found that the screen
freezes when I go to the Sky Map. I have to 'reset' to
use the Palm again.
3. Although it does show the Solar System, I cannot
open any objects (again the system freezes).

    - 2.4 locks the tungsten when I go to 'the solar system'
    - 2.5 locks randomly on any form.

    It's probably the change-to-gray-scale code that isn't working. I currently
    don't have the time to investigate further, though.

    Astro Info 2.5, Palm Tungsten/T:
    It freezes when you click on the icons in the title bar;
    usually you can step thru the planets using the L & R
    arrows, but it mostly locks up the /T when you try to exit.

    I'm looking forward to the Hi-Res version & a fix for this -
    Astro is the last of my "favourite apps" to NOT run properly
    on the /T !

    Similar problem on Zire 21. May be related to comment
    regarding catalog instabilities. Great program nontheless. An
    hints on a fix or schedule for revision/upgrade?

    Sorry for the large delay. I finally think I have fixed the bug, at
    least it doesn't crash any more under the Palm OS Simulator.

    I put a test release at

    If it works please tell me so I can add an official release.

    I have used all functions that I can think of and could access
    all screens. Moved between screens, moved in/out of the
    application and switched on and off. Where 'options' allow
    changes, I applied these and they worked too (were
    implemented). I am not sure it is OS5 or your new version,
    but it is even more fantastic now than when I last used on
    my PalmIII.

    Thanks again for such a brilliant application.

    A couple of things you may wish to add to your log.

    On Toggle Night Mode, the screen remains the same and the
    Az/Alt texts invert colours. I seem to remember that it all
    wen black/red.

    On Sky Map the drop down Menu provides a Tips screen
    suggesting we click on the O button for options when it is a
    hammer and screwdriver icon.
