Mac OS X 10.5 Problems

Post by cvictim » Mon Oct 05, 2009 6:52 pm

Hi, I literally just downloaded scummvm off of the downloads page and it says it's a disk image (which I'm not quite sure what that is). So when I downloaded it, there were several files and no program. I also downloaded scummaqua as a front-end but I'm not sure how to make any of it work. Can someone help? I don't have much knowledge of front-ends or seemingly anything needed to make this work..

When you download the disk image, OS X should mount it (if not, just double click on it). The ScummVM file is the application. ScummAqua is an ancient frontend that is not needed anymore; just use ScummVM's launcher.

I figured I was missing the Launcher because I checked out the tutorial thing but, I still can't find the Launcher haha...I'll keep looking I guess. The file I need to download for OS X is the "Mac OS X Universal Disk Image"?
Did you download the right file?

You got it right, it seems the first time you accidentally downloaded the ScummVM Tools. :)
