Help on installing openxcom on Mac OSX 10.10.2
« on: October 28, 2016, 11:59:21 pm »
Hi everyone!

I've been watching some people play openxcom on twitch (yogscast in particular) and I would really like to play. OpenXcom is advertised to work on Mac but I haven't been able to get it to work :(

Would someone be able to provide some more detailed instructions on how to install the game?

I tried to run the mac download from the `downloads' page but don't know how I can get the installer to point towards my XCOM original files.

I am familiar with coding and the terminal so could attempt to build from source too.

Thanks in advance for any help!

If you're using the 1.0 APP package, you just need to copy the UFO files into the APP resources: https://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php/Installing_(OpenXcom)#Mac_OS_X

However 1.0 doesn't seem to work that great on the latest OSX versions anymore, so if you experience problems, you might wanna try your luck with the nightlies instead: https://bitbucket.org/grrussel/openxcomosx

There's a bunch of other threads on this topic in the forums as well: https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,4457.0.html
