Are you typing these commands from the X11 window or the Terminal window? You should be typing them in the X11 window.December 6, 2006 at 2:05 pm #36065
I figured it out! This was a good thread! Thanks you guys!

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?December 7, 2006 at 12:59 am #36067
Yes, an application version of Scorched3d is definitely preferred. ThanksDecember 7, 2006 at 5:02 pm #36068

Do you know off hand the best place to find info on mac application building? If not don’t worry.December 7, 2006 at 5:55 pm #36069
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/December 8, 2006 at 11:19 am #36070December 22, 2006 at 6:43 am #36071
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?December 23, 2006 at 7:01 am #36072
i’m not a mac user, but let me try:
you can split that command into 3 commands to see wich part goes wrong:
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 localDecember 23, 2006 at 11:00 am #36073
That was supposed to be listed on two lines:
Sorry about that 🙄December 23, 2006 at 2:08 pm #36074
Note: I changed that line in the wiki to “mkdir /usr/local/games”December 25, 2006 at 3:35 am #36075
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.December 26, 2006 at 12:54 am #36076
What happened when you typed:
You should not see any error message, and if you enter
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 directionsFebruary 9, 2007 at 3:25 am #36077
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
**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
It worked for me!February 10, 2007 at 6:33 pm #36078
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.
