Question about Computers & Internet
Have you tried repairing disk permissions? Go to the Utility folder in Applications and start up Disk Utility. Click on the second icon at the top left, then click on Repair Permissions. Repair Disk at the bottom far right will be grayed out.
If that does not correct the problem:
Go to your user/Documents folder, and remove the AppleWorks User Data folder, put it in the trash, and empty the trash.
Do the same to your user/Library/Preferences/Appleworks folder
Do the same to the com.apple.appleworks.plist
logout and log back in as the same user. (not really necessary but I like an almost fresh start)
Open Appleworks, and make a NEW document and try to save it.
Open an existing document and try to save it.
If either of these will not work, let me know.

I don't know if you were receiving this error for the same reason I was. I had just purchased a new LCD Flat Panel display and the game absolutely hated the monitor. The resolution I had set for the previous monitor was apparently causing the error that prompted the "/safe" parameter message. Since support dragged their butts in offering a solution, I ended up seeking out help elsewhere online and found this website: http://www.widescreengamingforum.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page
They deal in solutions for playing a wide variety of games that may not have any support for widescreen.
They offered a most simple solution. The safe meesage appears to come up because the game does not like starting in the resolution you have the game set at.
Their fix is simple. Scrap the "/safe" command that the game is asking you to use.
Go into the game data folder and find the file DATA/ufo-et.ini and then edit the height and width parameters to a lower resolution OR if you are in fact using a widescreen monitor edit the resolution to the default resolution the screen runs best at and then resave the file. Restart the game and the "/safe" message should go away. Worked like a charm for me.
Let me know if this helps
