Crashing my mac on installation
« on: December 05, 2014, 04:54:47 AM »
Hello all,
I've tried searching this in the forum and the post I found did not resolve this issue. I downloaded the SDL and pak, put them together and this is the message I get:

Any suggestions how I can activate the game?

The error message seems to claim that SDL2 is missing. You may have installed SDL1, which is what Simutrans traditionally uses. (Simutrans with SDL1 has had poor performance on Macs, so I think SDL2 has become the default lately.)

Thanks for the reply! I dl SDL2 and when I go to open Simutrans, the terminal opens up and then nothing happens.

If you're running it from the .app, then the console is suppressed. Hence you cannot see any error messages Simutrans prints.
Try running from the executable instead. Most likely it's complaining you've not installed a pak correctly.
