Hi guys!

So excited to play openxcom but seems like there isn't a viable Mac version right now.

- The 1.0 version is still affected by a text rendering bug on OS X El Capitan (#1106 https://openxcom.org/bugs/openxcom/issues/1106) that makes text illegible
- I've followed the instructions for the nightly (https://bitbucket.org/grrussel/openxcomosx) but homebrew now installs newer versions than those required and I can't find a way to get the old versions.

Error I'm getting
################################################################

The libs homebrew installs for SDL are:
libSDL_mixer-1.2.0.dylib
libSDL_mixer.a
libSDL.dylib
libSDL_mixer.dylib
libSDLmain.a
libSDL-1.2.0.dylib
libSDL_gfx.15.dylib
libSDL.a
libSDL_image-1.2.0.dylib
libSDL_gfx.a
libSDL_gfx.dylib
libSDL_image.a
libSDL_image.dylib

Is there anyone who could build a functioning Mac .app? I imagine there's quite a few people with these problems, and would love to be able to play!

Cheers, and thanks to the community for all the hard work getting to 1.0!

I somehow managed to workaround similar error:
https://OS X, Yosemite, Nightly version build with instructions from: openxcom.orghttps://

with code:

cd /usr/local/lib/
cp libSDL_gfx.15.dylib libSDL_gfx.13.dylib

and then opening ./openxcom

I dont know if this is fully functional, but game opens properly.

So glad to see there is a new(ish) standalone Mac build in the "Builds and Ports" section of the forums, at
https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,5288.0.html

Many thanks to darklord42 for building that!
