Yeah, they're just renamed zip-files. It didn't really work out too well with Finder auto-unzipping the archive. Not sure how to deal with this.

EDIT: @farvardin: We're experiencing the same. Running .love-files directly didn't work.

Game (/Users/eric/dl/no.love) does not exist.
Farvardin: Just curious, is "eric" referring to your home directory or my home directory? I thought about this for a while and still can't figure out why my home directory path appears when you're trying to open no.love .

rude: I can't figure out why .zips don't work . Do they work on windows/linux if you open them with love without renaming with .love extension?

Yes, on Windows and Linux it works regardless of extension.

oh, so you're called Eric too? Yes, it's my name too, funny I didn't think it could confuse you, and it's refering to my home folder for sure ;)

Okay, I seriously have no idea why it doesn't work. I won't have time to investigate further for a couple of weeks; I have end of semester exams starting tomorrow. :|

Haha what a coincidence. 8-)

To sum it up... There is still problems with love on mac opening zip archives. They must be unzipped first, for now. (Then enter "open -a love path_to_directory" on terminal, or rename folder with extension .love and double click.)

Nice instructions (readme.rtf), by the way. Didn't read them until now. Thankfully, I've gained some XCode experience these past months, so I should be able to figure things out when I eventually get my own Mac.

About scripts.sh: weird that that's not possible with XCode alone. Nice work figuring that out anyway.

Thanks... I wrote most of it as I progressed through compiling to log my steps, so just had to clean it up a bit. Not like that took alot of effort... ;)

There are only 2 ways you can get XCode to do this. The first one is compile the libraries yourself and setting their "installation path"; XCode copies linked libraries' installation paths to the executables. I couldn't do this for libraries and frameworks I didn't compile myself. The second one is two tell XCode to execute scripts after compiling automatically. I haven't gotten this to work so... Its only a matter of experience, rather than technical difficulties.

So you haven't gotten your mac yet... Well, I could volunteer myself to compile mac versions until you do? If you want, I'd be glad to do it until someone better comes along. xD

I think I left some sentences in the read me;
You don't need libjpeg, libpng; they are already inside IL.framework. All the prerequisites are inside love.app. Just get the new XCode, if you need it. If you are really short of bandwidth I could save it in older compatible versions though - -.

Nor have I ordered one, just so that's clear. I have a Mac right now, but that's because the university is lending me one, and that won't last forever.

Yeah? That would be great. Maybe you should get SVN write access then. Do you have a SourceForge account?

my sourceforge account is appleide, too. I was thinking I'd just download linux sources and compile those... But svn-ing the sources work too, I suppose. I'm unfamiliar with SVN, used it only once or twice a while ago, but I guess I'll get to know it soon. What's the SVN-access url for love's repository?

Code: Select all

svn co https://love.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/love love
I guess. Copied from sourceforge. ;)
