The Unofficial Mac Version is back!
« on: February 01, 2008, 12:23:48 pm »

My old patchset had suffered from severe bit rot, and large sections of it required rewriting; but the quality of the code I was patching against improved quite a bit, so the rewrites were largely a breeze.

At any rate, you can get the current release here.  Source code is also provided for folks on other platforms who may want to share the love.

Everyone who has downloaded my version (both of you Wink ) should be aware that there is a crash bug when entering orbit around gas giants -- I found the cause of the problem and will be packaging a replacement version tonight.

First of all, thank you for the Mac version.

But... it keeps crashing. The crash log states that I am missing the ogg.framework. It also says that it found AN ogg.framework, but it is the wrong architecture.

Any thoughts?

Edit: I had to download the ogg.framework separately from your page and create a frameworks folder in my library folder. Did I miss a step somewhere? Usually, when I'm the only one having trouble it's my own fault. That could certainly be the case here.

The problem is that at some point, the install_names on the Ogg and Vorbis frameworks got set to /Library/Frameworks, instead of the "magical" value @executable_path/../Frameworks  This means that the game won't ever look in the application bundle for the frameworks, it will insist on them being installed externally.

Normally I would suggest using install_name_tool to change the install_names on everything to sensible values and be on your way, but since the new name is larger than the old name, it won't work (there's a compile-time option to pad the install_names out for such things, but it wasn't used)  Angry

I've rebuilt the frameworks and game binary, and will repackage/upload them all tonight.
