BTW, it would be good Mac citizenship to put the logs files and data somewhere else. Either in ~/documents/ or ~/library/application support.

Best wishes,

~/documents/ is pretty common for games (Halo, KOTOR, NWN2, Oolite, Spore, ScummVM, SixtyForce).
~/library/application support is pretty common for productivity applications (Adobe, Mozilla, Microsoft, Handbrake, Skype, Vuze) and other games (Fallout, Porrasturvat, DEFCON, Myst V, American McGee's Alice, Prey)

I don't mind either way. ~/documents is easier to find and more often used by newer commercial games, and ~/library/application support doesn't get in the way of other documents.. I'm sure Apple recommends something, but I can't be sure what.

So take your pick ;).

Best wishes,
 Oscar

P.S. Still others put their save games in ~/library/preferences (Bioshock, Fable, Need for Speed), but that is the wrong place if you have more than config files to store..

OK, sounds good :).

BTW, the version I tested was r28212.
Good luck with the missing lib, missing ammo and the crash.

Best wishes,

looks like sdl is trying to load the libvorbis dylib. i will check whether it's included in the dmg and what we can do to let sdl load the one from the dmg.

Apple refuses to bundle Vorbis or Theora with Mac OS X, presumably to favour and standardise to their AAC and H264 codecs..:(

I have Xiph components for QT and VLC installed, which may have that library, but UFO:AI apparently can't use those.

maybe we should have a look at http://macdylibbundler.sourceforge.net/ to ensure that we've added all dependencies to the bundle. but i'm not sure whether this approach will also tell sdl_mixer to load the libvorbis.dylib from the bundle path.

Looks promising. It is something for the developer who packages the mac version of UFO:AI to try out, so as a player I doubt my input is of any use ;).

Best wishes,

upload ready - http://destructavator.com/mattn/ufoai-2.3-dev-macosx-i386_r28688.dmg

Haven't checked in for a bit, downloading now to test.

As for ~/Documents vs ~/Library/Application Support/

If they are files you expect the end user to edit or delete and have visible to them ~/Documents/

If they are files that are "in the background", then ~/Library/Application Support/

Cool, thanks. I've been looking for a while for this, guess I didn't look hard enough. I'll download that sometime soon. Cheers.
