So. Did some experimenting. If I uninstall fpse and redownload it it then gets to the menu to download plugins and such. If I choose easy it hangs and times out. Then if you try to open fpse it hangs on loading the app. So I think the load is getting corrupted somehow with that easy mode timeout. But if I do another freshfpse install and use advanced mode, it works well and can access everything. Its a little slower than it was in version 0.11.96. I think that's the version that worked before I got some problems. Hope that helps some. I'll just use advanced for awhile. And all this I did after today's update. Thanks for this amazing application. Its the most compatible one on the market.
