This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.gearthhacks.com/dlfile29707/Google-Earth-Eye-Elevation-Bug.htm>Google Earth Eye Elevation Bug</a></b><br><br>So...zoom out all the way. Then (you know how double clicking equals zooming in?) keep double-clicking till you are zoomed all the way in (make sure you keep clicking in the same spot, don't bother moving the mouse, just click)(till you can't zoom any more) and click a bit more for good measure. Then, scroll down (so it zooms in). If you do it correctly, your eye elevation display will go insane...jumping all around...going into like -123894332 feet and so on...Then your screen will fire you off and your zoom settings will be weird.<br />
<br />

ALTERNATE METHOD: Just zoom in (scroll) all the way and keep scrolling alittle after u hit maximum zoom. Let go of scroll and off it goes..

Works best in areas where you can zoom down to under 300 feet (England works really well). This file is a placemark where it has worked every time for me.

Note: Done with new beta 4.3 (not sure if it works with the normal GE4)<br /><br /><img src=http://www.gearthhacks.com/showimage.php?image=112807/163493negativealt.jpg>

This bug, I assume, is responsible for crashing the uncrashable. My MacPro running OS X 10.5.2 crashed after using this bug once and, after zooming back out, trying to zoom in again. The "You must restart your computer" dialogs cam up and I was forced to do a hard reboot.

Ye be warned!

Let me know if there are any other similar issues...
