I have been a longtime user of iScroll2 on my 1.33 GHz PowerBook G4.
I recently had a hard drive failure and while I didn't lose any data,
I decided it was about time to do a fresh install of the OS while I
was at it. It has been eons and I have screwed around with a lot of
things, not to mention I didn't feel like double-triple checking the
data. (My recovery process merged a recent full backup and select
updated files... some "new" files contained bad blocks, so it was
substantially easier to to just re-install the system rather than end
up with a mixed up version or something.) I did keep my old Library
Anyhow, my system got back up and running beautifully, down to the
every last application and extra, except one item: iScroll2. A quick
re-download of iScroll2 got it back up and running no problem. But
all of the sudden, it is INSANELY SENSITIVE! Like, one hundred times
or more sensitive than before. I believe I was using the default
settings before even. It is so sensitive (with the defaults) that I
can't use it, like I move a tiny, tiny bit and I fly through 10,000
mail mail messages and even the slightly upward movement (even not
intended) sends me up and down like insanity. Even some tweaking
(though I didn't spend a lot of time on this) didn't get me anywhere
near where I was before.
As far as I know, I was running 10.4.7 and iScroll2 and the software
should be exactly the same as before, except I went from iScroll2
0.25 to 0.26. (Yes, my version was fairly out of date.) I reverted
back to 0.25 and... presto, the scrolling is perfect. As an
experiment, I upgraded to 0.26 (without removing 0.25, in hopes of
keeping the same defaults) and the scrolling got at least twice as
sensitive - too sensitive. Suffice to say, I have downgraded to 0.25
again. Why not, I could spend an hour or two playing with the
settings and only maybe get the sensitivity back where it was, or I
can just install a simple .pkg file.
It seems this is a difference in the defaults and possibly the code
itself. Anybody have any insight into what is going on here?
