That will most probably fail, but just in case: for your G5, can you recover a version of ~/Library/Preferences/com.bluesky.Textures.plist from before you performed the upgrade, using Time machine? In case your version of OS X makes ~/Library invisible by default, you can change that by typing in Utilities/Terminal:

	chflags nohidden ~/Library

If your can recover this version, and you have also access (possibly from a Time Machine backup too) to the version of Textures from before the upgrade, then you can erase the current versions of Textures and the preference file, replace them by the old versions, and see what happens.

Other than that, there's also the problem that a G5 is PowerPC IIRC, and I don't remember whether the latest Textures are Universal or Intel-only. There's an instruction for testing that (something involving 'arch'), but I don't remember it right now.

I'll be super-busy for the next 4 to 6 hours hence unable to help until much later in the day.
