Running Simutrans on Macos Catalina
« on: April 09, 2020, 02:17:01 PM »
Hi,
is there any way to make Simutrans run on Macos Catalina?
I'm not very familiar with compiling binaries myself, and not sure if they can at all be compiled for 64bit Macos?

Thanks,

The version was created with GIT actions. A packset is still needed.
Mac System see here

But I can not say whether it works because there has been no feedback so far.

Hey, thanks.
I can't get it to run, it keeps crashing while opening the app... I attached the crash report

Maybe try on the commandline "-nomidi" as switch.

This doesn't look like the MIDI bug reported twice before.

The symbols may be useful clues this time, since the offset following them are small. That means something in Simutrans itself, which includes inlined (i.e. most) C++ library code, called abort. As assert perhaps.

Thanks for the ideas all. Still didn't manage to get it to run.
Are there any system or software requirements I may not be aware of?
