I know that the GAME script is not officially supported.  I have a copy in the scripts folder.  I can add it  to the scripts menu, but after every restart it disappears from the menu and I have to add it again. Not a huge problem, but is this expected behavior for unofficial scripts at this point?  I think this changed in 1.8.6. 

Thanks
Mike

No, this is not normal at all. If you feature a script (by selecting Script > Feature Scripts from the main menu) it should remain featured across application executions. Otherwise something is tampering with PixInsight's settings to cause this abnormal behavior.

Thank you, Juan.  On further reflection and testing, I think this occurred with the crashing that I was experiencing (adding the script, but then PI crashing without quitting normally). It is behaving normally now.  My apologies....

On another note, I have been able to *sometimes* re-create a crash I reported in the Bug forum by having an ArcsinhStretch preview window open, tracking it in HT and then trying to adjust the black point in HT.  Twice in a row it crashed as soon as I touched the black point, but now I can't get it to do it again....  I'll report back if I can figure out how to crash it every time.
