Love those icons, zeroz! :D Thanks for the .plists :) It'd have taken a while if I had to work it out by myself. :(

I've uploaded a love.app iconified by zeroz at http://appleide.sitesled/love.app !

How come the mac version of love can't open .zip archives like on other platforms? :|

You're also welcome if you would like to maintain mac binaries. :)

I can check if it's a problem in the Xcode project configuration or a LOVE incompatibility with Mac OS X in source code.
If you want I can work directly on your project file. ;)

WOW. I just downloaded the UB, ran the hamster demo, modified its behaviour a bit and then figured out how to make the game quit at a keypress - in like... 2 minutes.

I hadn't even heard of Love before a few minutes ago (came here through a posting on http://iDevGames.com). And I've certainly never had such a quick and easy (not to mention fun) start-up with any kind of development environment - truly awesome. Thanks!

Here is the macosx folder. download the linux sourcecode. put the macosx (after decompression) inside the platforms folder. :) Project file is inside.

Thank you appleide for your project.

I've recompiled love 0.5 for my system (Intel Leopard), using all needed libraries from macports (the only framework used is the OpenGL); result: opening love files from finder works perfectly.

Now I've to check which library cause that problem. ;)

love files as renamed zip and renamed folders :D

UPDATE: the problem is caused by the physfs framework, now I've to find why.

UPDATE 2: I've compiled the physfs 1.1.1 dynamic library and replaced the physfs framework in your original love application package (using install_name_tool) and all works fine.
How your physfs framework is compiled?
Also, why not using libraries instead of frameworks (or better static libraries stripping unneeded symbols)?

I found frameworks easier to deal with; love.app has all the required dependencies inside itself so all macs can run it without the required libraries. Compiling with static libraries is certainly a good idea... But its not as easy. I'm just a newbie dev, I don't even know C++ :D

If you want you could re-compile love with all the dependencies compiled with it statically, or I would try do it later. :)
