When trying to run Minecraft on OS X systems, the launcher tries to use Java 6 for Mac by default. This is because Apple used to ship their own version of Java (SE 6) with the operating system (mainly for security reasons). In recent versions of OS X, however, Java is no longer included, hence the error message you're seeing. There are two ways to solve ...

Ever since the new Minecraft launcher was released back at version 1.6, it is no longer necessary to mess around with application bundles or command line trickery to change the version of Java you wish to use. The Minecraft Launcher itself will still require Java 6 on Mac, but Minecraft itself will launch with the version that you specify in the launcher. ...

Unfortunately the answer is going to be the same. Your Macbook may have an HDMI port, but it's an HDMI Output, not an Input. The monitor is connected internally, so you don't have direct access to the monitor's inputs. This is the way laptops (and iMacs) are designed. The HDMI port you mentioned is for multi-monitor setups or for outputting to a projector - ...

I had the hardest time finding a fix for this, so I thought I would give those instructions here: When LoLPatcher shows up in your dock, right-click it and select "Show in Finder". This opens a Finder window with 2 .app files: LoLPatcher.app and LoLPatcherHelper.app. Right-Click "LoLPatcher.app" and select "Get Info". Check the box that says "Prevent ...

Truth be told, Minecraft is actually not that big of a game... It most likely won't free up your space that much. However in case it does for some reason, follow these steps Start > Control Panel > Programs and Features > Look for Minecraft and click Uninstall (if you can't find it then right click on the Minecraft name in the list and you will see it). If ...

Steam's option to launch on startup is on by default. You can change it by going to the menu bar and choosing Steam → Preferences… to open Steam's Preferences window. Then in the Preferences window choose Interface (I know, that's not intuitive, is it), and uncheck Run Steam when my computer starts: To stop an already-running Steam, just switch to ...

The above directions are correct, for the MAC, as of around 2012 (these are my files). In 2014 however, using The Witcher from Steam, the location of saved files is "~/Library/Application Support/com.cdprojektred.TheWitcher/GameDocuments/The Witcher/Saves/". For The Witcher 2, i.e., the place to copy the saved W1 file into, the location is ...

You key should have activated instantly and therefore your unlocked game should be inside your Steam Library. If it isn't check your steam inventory since it may have been put there by accident. The game should be available to download inside your steam library and it will install inside the SteamApps folder: C:\Program Files ...

You simply add it as a library under settings/downloads - this is universal to all variations of Steam.

Within the Mac Preferences for Mouse/Trackpad you can choose to assign a 'secondary click' to the bottom right hand corner of the Trackpad. This will however affect your full operating system and will not just affect the game.

Yes. If you bought the game on Steam, it is tied to your account and should be available for you to download on other platforms. That's what the "SteamPlay" icon on the store page means.


2

Once you enter the key the game should be added to your Steam library immediately. The dialogue you entered the key should have given you the option to install the game. If you missed that or chose not to install the game then you can install it by selecting the game in your library and clicking the blue install button.

This sounds like it has nothing to do with Botanicula itself and everything to do with the .dmg file, since it sounds like an error you'd get while trying to mount the .dmg (double-clicking it) and not trying to launch the application itself. It looks like the game itself is at version 1.1, so your version isn't so old that the .dmg would be in some legacy, ...

Here are two easy answers: (1) Don't install Java 6 (the old version from Apple). Instead head to Oracle's website and install Java 8. Now head back to Minetcraft.net and download the Linux version of Minecraft. Extract the "Minecraft.jar", double click to start, and answer a few security questions. (2) Wait. According to reddit post in December 2014, ...

So here's a list of supported controllers for input in Arkham City on Mac. Xbox controllers do make an appearance further down the list under Devices Using Third-Party Drivers, and it looks like you need something called Tattiebogle to use Xbox controllers on Mac OS. I have created a USB driver which allows you to use wired XBox 360 Controllers via USB, ...

Ok, I found the answer, and it's a weird one. Basically, it was Time Machine's fault. I use TM as my backup mechanism, but I back my system to an external HD. So, I naturally assumed that my backups were all exclusively on that external HD. Nope. Time Machine takes liberties with the free space on your system partition. It uses as much free space as ...

Starting the game (Hotline Miami JPN Update OSX) in Original instead of Updated Mode, selectable in the start screen, has fixed the problem.

Update After i played around and Finn Rayment did not get it to work, i just started a thread in the Steamcommunity about this and got the following answer from a developer You can't import external models yet. We'll hopefully add it at some point in the future though. So my first answer is just for Universe Sanbox 1. First answer I can't give you ...

If you're asking if you can play Windows Only games on your Mac then your only option is to use Bootcamp to install Windows on your Mac and then boot your Mac into Windows instead of OSX. If you choose this, you can still have OSX too. You would hold the option button on startup and and it would ask you if you would like to boot Windows or OSX. Googling ...

As you commented that you have a Mac, try: Macintosh HD (Your Hard Drive) > Users > (Your Account) > Library > Application Support. Delete the folder "Minecraft" in there. You can also delete Minecraft.app in Applications.

Yes, Counter Strike 1.6 on Steam is currently cross platform on Windows, Mac OS X and SteamOS+Linux. It is interoperable between all platforms, so you should have no problems playing with friends on a LAN.

I successfully use the following command with no issues. It is here in Applescript form so you can save it as an .app for each launching: do shell script "\"/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/bin/java\" -d64 -Xms4096M -Xmx5130M -jar /Applications/Minecraft.app/Contents/Resources/Java/Bootstrap.jar"

Most Games and Mods rely very heavily on knowing what platform they are targeting. This makes it very difficult to port complex modifications between platform versions of the game even if they seem to be similar on the outside. Simply re-targeting the XML will not aid in handling numerous internal function calls that will not be recognized outside the ...

"Steam updating should not cause permissions to need to be re-enabled. Also, I have noticed this occurs more often than Steam updates. It is more likely an issue with Yosemite that has not been patched in Steam yet. " (All credit should go to tubedogg.)

Open Finder, on your keyboard press Command+Shift+G (Or 'Go to Folder…' from the Go menu), then a popup appears. Enter ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft/resourcepacks in the text box and press Go. Now you should be in the resourcepacks folder. This is what the Go to Folder popup looks like:

Resource pack as in your texturepack folder? Have you tried going into your game, going to options, Texture Packs, and clicking Open Folder? That is one sure way to get it to work. Otherwise, go into your ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft and make a new folder called resourcepacks. Or one thing you can do is this. Open the Launcher Go down to Edit ...

You should be able to modify manually the keybindings in the WillowInput.ini file. In the mac version it is supposed to be on ~/Library/Preferences/Feral Interactive/ (or some subfolder that might be hidden). You should add a line to the [Engine.PlayerInput] part, like Bindings=(Name="LeftControl",Command="Duck") It could also be "Crouch", I can't test it ...
