Title: Addons under Mac OS X
Post by: scaryfish on August 17, 2004, 12:45:37 pm
I've downloaded the uqm music remixes, and put them in a folder called "uqmremix" in the addons folder in the package, but there isn't any new music.

The instructions say to add "--addon uqmremix", but how do I do this if I'm using the mac application?

Can someone assist me?  I am having the same problem, and the post linked in the previous posting is dead.

I made the 'uqremix' directory in the 'addon' directory of 'resources/content/packages/addons'.  Into that directory, I placed the three remix .zip files, without unzipping them.

It is in the command line stuff that I get lost.
Now I am not familiar with terminal, but I opened it, and went to the  'macos' directory of my UQM installation, where the Unix executable is.  I dragged the icon into terminal, so it would be correct syntax.  To the end of the line, I appended '--addon uqremix', and hit enter.

This is the result:

Yet the game will run fine, it just won't play the remix music :(
