Version 1.2.0 fixes a major OS 9 bug that prevented SonicMood from displaying all of its scenic pictures and occasionally crashed the Help System. It also adds the ability to save and load different "Moods Files". You can now launch SonicMood by double clicking one of the Moods Files (you can recognize them by their "yellow musical note" icon).
