SigCorp - Holiday Special (Unofficial Mac port)
« on: January 06, 2014, 08:15:06 PM »
Hi everyone,

I hope Reives doesn't mind this unofficial Mac port.

Credits: This Mac port is made possible by amazing work of Ancurio and mkxp contributors:
https://github.com/Ancurio/mkxp/

Please Note: This is an unofficial port, therefore it may have several bugs, you can contact me about them and I will try my best to help, but please note that this port is not officially made or supported by Freebird Games.
This game has been tested on OS X 10.6, 10.7, 10.8 & 10.9.
Last but not least, this port is for 64-bit (x86_64) machines only, any Mac with an Intel Core2Duo processor or later is 64-bit, if your Mac runs Mac OS X Lion or later then you have a 64-bit Mac!

Instructions:
- Download "SigCorp - Holiday Special.dmg" from here:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/d35qw6cla0u6bav/SigCorp%20-%20Holiday%20Special.dmg
- Mount the dmg file by double clicking it.
- From the new window that appears, drag "SigCorp - Holiday Special" to your Applications folder, or any other path you like.
- Open "SigCorp Holiday Special"!

Troubleshooting:
- If you get warnings that this app is from an unidentified developer, this means you have OS X GateKeeper turned on. You can allow running of this particular game by Right clicking on the "SigCorp - Holiday Special", then clicking on the "Open" from the menu.

- You can close the game with the usual Command-Q shortcut.

- If you have problems with the Full Screen, Right click on "SigCorp - Holiday Special", browse to Contents>Resources>bin , open the mkxp.conf with a text editor, change "fullscreen=true" to "fullscreen=false" and save the file.

- If mkxp.conf  is not modifiable, you are modifying the one that is on the read-only dmg file, modify the copy you made to your Applications folder.

- If the game does not start, please try running Contents/MacOS/sigcorp in the Terminal and give me the output.

Other Mac ports:
- To The Moon has an official Mac port on Steam, that port is not made by me so expect it to be more stable (:P) and it should work on 32-bit Macs too.
http://store.steampowered.com/app/206440/
I have made unofficial Mac/Linux compatible versions of Spanish and Italian translations of To The Moon so far, you can ask for them or request other languages via Private Message.

- Do You Remember My Lullaby, unofficial Mac port.

- The Mirror Lied, unofficial Mac port.

Hi Anc,
It was not the only problem with that build!
I built another one and used macdylibbundler to fix dependencies. Then I manually fixed a dependency issue with libvorbis.
The result is a much more portable version that even works on OS X 10.6:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/d35qw6cla0u6bav/SigCorp%20-%20Holiday%20Special.dmg

But there are odd bugs on OS X 10.6 that does not appear on OS X 10.7 and up.

BTW, I have also made a mac port of Do You Remember My Lullaby, I had to convert midi files to mp3 in order to prevent crashes (I know mkxp does not support midi yet and you are working on it).

Hey ali,
tested this new build today and it worked great here! I only played half of it
(10 minutes) but I'm certain that there aren't any other problems, at least
on the machine I tested (mac mini, 10.7).

Hi Ali,

I tested it on 10.6 and it works great! No problems at all, even with the keyboard. Thanks!

Hi Aisling,

That's great!
I have suspected the keyboard issue on 10.6 might have something to do with my installation.
Thanks.
