I'm running monterey 12.3.1. The copy of Extended-7.5.3-f94c8c56f-2022-02-07-macos.dmg at cant-post-external-links https openxcom.org oxce release  doesn't work for me. On starting it, I get an openxcom window and I can hear the audio from the startup video. But part of the window where the game would appear is a blank gray. My mouse disappears when I move it into the window. Also, the window's title bar and the menus (at the top of the screen) are slightly blurry on the main iMac screen.

The copy of openxcom.dmg linked a few messages back ( which identifies itself as 7.5.8 ) works fine. The game video and audio are fine, and the title bar & menu are sharp.

I do have some development stuff installed, as I was previously building OpenXcom from source code.

Thanks for the confirmation.

I'll try to produce builds for newer macOS in the future, as soon as I get my hands on some newer hardware.

How do you build a macOS version of OXCE? AFAIK, for win 32/64 and Linux you are using Stoddard's Jenkins job, but what about mac?

I cannot reproduce the success of the ARM release from earlier this year. When I compile it on my M2 MacBook Air, following the instructions he said to follow, it compiles fully but instantly crashes when you try to launch it.

In addition, the working build runs unbearably slow, worsening the higher resolution you run it at. Even at sub 1080p, it's near unplayable and definitely not enjoyable.

Hi Meridian,
I suppose that for Monterey/Ventura the version is still 7.5.3, right? What about a porting of the 7.8 into it? Do You think it could be possible?
Regards

I cannot create a build for newer Macs, my Macbook is too old.

But the guy who compiled it for newer Macs can do it also for OXCE 7.8
(there is no difference in compilation compared to OXCE 7.5.3, somebody just needs to ask him nicely)

Here you go! As per usual, one should populate /Applications/openxcom.app/Contents/Resources/UFO/ with a legitimately-owned copy of the original game after installing.

(The previous, deleted message was me forgetting that I should not upload an image containing a populated copy of this directory. D'oh!)
Hi domq, when and if possible, could You build another .dmg with the latest 7.8? Just to be up to date..
Thanks
