    Are you typing these commands from the X11 window or the Terminal window? You should be typing them in the X11 window.

    fab, is there anything I can do to make the mac package better? Someone make an application once, does that make things easier for people?

    Yes, an application version of Scorched3d is definitely preferred. Thanks

    Do you know off hand the best place to find info on mac application building? If not don’t worry.

    First, I’ll mention I’m no programmer.

    Secondly, if I was a programmer, then first place I’d check is http://developer.apple.com/

    I heard about this game on MacBreak Weekly and was stoked to check it out…. yet I hit a dead end when installing.

    I’ve spent an hour going through this thread and putting different commands in the terminal – not really knowing what I’m doing but hoping to stumble across the answer.

    I’ve got X11 Installed – I’ve done every step from: http://www.scorched3d.co.uk/wiki/index.php/Mac

    No luck. So I go the the bottom of the page where it says “If you saw an error during step 7, it’s because there’s no game folder on your system (for Unix games). To create a games folder type: cd /usr/local mkdir games”

    I do this and get: “tcsh: cd: Too many arguments.”

    What does this mean? Anyone have any idea?

    i’m not a mac user, but let me try:

    you can split that command into 3 commands to see wich part goes wrong:

    cd /usr
    cd local
    mkdir games

    the first command enters into the directory usr
    the second enters in the sub-directory local (inside usr)
    the third commands creates a directory called games inside local

    That was supposed to be listed on two lines:
    cd /usr/local
    mkdir games

    Sorry about that 🙄

    Note: I changed that line in the wiki to “mkdir /usr/local/games”

    Thanks for trying – but no luck.

    I’m just going to wait until there’s an installer available. I’ve never been much of a coder and don’t feel like trying now. I’m on a mac to avoid all of this! haha – I felt like I was digressing there for a few days.

    Thanks anyway guys.

    What happened when you typed:
    mkdir /usr/local/games

    You should not see any error message, and if you enter
    cd /usr/local
    ls

    You should now see a games directory listed

    If all is working OK, then move the scorched3d folder to the games folder by following the wiki directions

    For those having trouble with the different commands in X11 or terminal

    Open x11 (maybe terminal?) and type as follows and enter after each line
    cd documents
    mkdir games
    **Note** Go to your documents folder in finder and manually move scorched into the games folder and go back to x11 and type as follows
    cd games
    cd scorched3d
    ./scorched3d

    It worked for me!

    I also heard the game mentioned on MacBreak! But I must say the way to set-up the game definitely isn’t easy. It can’t be too difficult for someone to create a clickable game icon without needing terminal?

    It took me about an hour to get it running. I also found tutorial ( http://www.scorched3d.co.uk/wiki/index.php/Mac ) has a slight error…

    Where it says:

    7: sudo mv scorched3d /usr/local/games/ (Note you’ll need to type your administrator password here)
    8: cd /usr/local/games/scorched3d

    I think it’s supposed to be:

    7: sudo mv scorched3d /usr/local/games/scorched3d (Note you’ll need to type your administrator password here)
    8: cd /usr/local/games/scorched3d

    Or I might have just done it wrong, but that was how I got it to work.
