    Ah i’ve finally got it to work! I had to download “X11” from the Apple website, and i installed it. From there I entered to commands to get to the “scorched3d” folder, and then typed “./scorched3d,” and sure enough, it worked! Finally, it was all just getting X11…

    Well tons of thanks to everyone who contributed, espeacially fab4, you rock man!

    I’ve already done all of that. I don’t need X11, i have Scorched 40.1.d or whatever. I followed the directions exactly…

    Ok new info. I’ve manually placed the “scorched3d” folder, with everything in it, into the “games” folder, which is inside the “local” folder, which is inside the hidden “usr” folder. Now, i type “cd /usr/local/games/scorched3d,” which brings me to the folder. I type in “./scorched3d,” and it KEEPS giving me the same message. Here i’ll show you exactly what i do in the “shell.”

    Welcome to Darwin!
    (username):~ (username)$ cd /usr/local/games/scorched3d
    (username):/usr/local/games/scorched3d (username)$ ./scorched3d
    dyld: ./scorched3d can’t open library: /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.1.dylib (No such file or directory, errno = 2)
    Trace/BPT trap
    (username):/usr/local/games/scorched3d (username)$



    So… do i really need X11? Even with the latest version? And if i don’t have a 10.4 OS installed, then how do i go about downloading X11? Also is Open Al needed, i’m quite sure i’ve installed it, practically certain, but i don’t know what it’s doing if anything.

    By the way, sorry if i’m getting on your nerves, you don’t know how much this means to me.

    right but i don’t even know if i have a “USR,” or “Local” folder, on top of that, i don’t know if it’s actually creating the folder when i type those commands. It keeps saying, “(username)/usr/local (username)$.”

    When I type, “cd /usr/local/games,” it takes me to that folder apprently. So i type “ls,” and it tells me that apparently this “Games” folder, is the scorched3d folder, because it has all of the files in it. When i type, “./scorched3d,” it gives me the same message, “dyld: ./scorched3d can’t open library: /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.1.dylib (No such file or directory, errno = 2).” Also i have no knowledge of how to access this folder (searched my computer, it doesn’t seem to exist).

    Yes it has 512ram.

    So wait, what if i don’t have a usr/local/games folder? I can’t move it there if i have no such folder? Should i make one? Do you have an AIM Screen name so we can make this go much faster?

    Wow… so let me get this straight. I opened it to the “scorched3d” folder in my “Documents” folder, and typed “ls.” It gave me the list, everything you said up there. So i typed, “./scorched3d,” and it keeps saying this “dyld: ./scorched3d can’t open library: /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.1.dylib (No such file or directory, errno = 2).” Normally i have no idea what i’m doing wrong, heh.

    Oh, and i think i’ve figured out that the “Move” command the tutorial Mac tells you do to isn’t needed, and that you can just open the “scorched3d” folder, and try from there. But i don’t know if i’m right or not… so yeah.

    Your help is much appreciated.

    I’m running on an Emac (so yes G4), my video card can hold VRAM 32mb, and i’m pretty sure i’m running better than 10.4. If there’s a way to check, please inform me, or if there’s a way to check if you’ve got OpenAl installed (i remember installing it even if i don’t have it, but i’m not sure where it goes once it’s installed).

    Do you want me to enter those in after i’ve entered “sudo mv scorched3d /usr/local/games/,” or just right when I open up terminal?

    And i just noticed something wierd… when i put the “scorched3d” file into my “Documents” folder, it sometimes just dissapears from my computer after I used Terminal.

    Ok, so the Terminal works up until the point when it tells me to enter “cd /usr/local/games/scorched3d” into it, and press enter. When i do that, it says, “No such file or Directory,” or it says, “Not a Directory,” so i have no clue where to go from there.

    By the way thanks everyone for all the help.

    That link is a search engine only?

    Well i just realized that i have absolutely no idea how to run this game, (no knowledge of Terminal, or UNIX) and i can’t find any instructions. If this Mac user could help me step by step, i would greatly appreciate it.
