MacOS claims OWM is already running

Post by Sticktwig » Tue Dec 20, 2022 1:35 pm

Ran into a new issue this morning, where my Mac (Ventura 13.1) refused to load OWM with a message "Other World Mapper is already running..." I forgot to record the full message. What resolved this was deleting the plist file and restarting. The plist file is located at: /Users/(account name)/Library/Preferences or ~/Library/Preferences. The file name is: com.otherworldmapper.expansion.plist

OWM will build a new plist file when it starts. I'm not certain if there is any information loss with the deletion. Anyone know?

I've added it to our issue list and we'll look into it. Hopefully we can get it fixed for the next release. Thank you for letting us know!
