Yes, there is: just press Alt+Enter.

A deleted file on your harddrive may be recovered using file recovery programs, given that there hasn't been written too much to the disk afterwards. However, there are no guarantees. MAC has several alternatives, however I haven't tried them. EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard is one example. Sidenote: For PC-users there's (for instance) Piriform's Recuva you ...

Because pictures say more than a thousand words. I think you can figure out in which directory you want to put your games in :)

The Unofficial Elder Scrolls Page on Skyrim's controls even mentions this issue with mice like the Apple Magic Mouse: Dual Cast: Attack with both hands simultaneously. If the same spell is assigned to both hands and you have unlocked the appropriate Dual Casting perk, a more powerful version of the spell is cast. If your mouse doesn't support left click ...

Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite is still Beta software as of July 2014. I wouldn't expect Minecraft to be updated for the new operating system until it is released. Maybe not even then if they still haven't updated it for version 7 which is more than a year old. First make sure you have the latest Minecraft launcher: download here: https://minecraft.net/download ...

Most fullscreen programs on Mac OS 10.8 will use the four-finger swipe to switch between it and the desktop, but Minecraft doesn't obey this protocol. It appears to use a borderless window the size of the desktop instead of creating and using a separate fullscreen space. It also appears to set itself to be always on top, so Minecraft won't relinquish focus ...

Yes, there are bloat/trash files. Blizzard has recommended to uninstall and re-install from their website if you have size restrictions. The original install plus patches take up a lot more room then the most recent install from the website. The original file size was 8.3 GB for the installed game See here EDIT: I know this isn't exactly what you're ...

You need to have a save created during the Ice Plains or Order of the Flaming Rose Cloister portions of the Epilogue. The Witcher 2 recognizes only saves made before the last fight. The save should be located under: "~/Library/com.cdprojektred.TheWitcher/The Witcher/Saves/" and the game save files should have a name like the following: xxxxxx - Order of ...

Okay, so I found out the problem, it is due to an app called USB Overdrive taking precedence over the controls of the DS4 controller. If you're like me and you happen to also have a gaming mouse (with no driver support from the maker, pffft Roccat Kova[+]) for FPS games, this app is probably installed on your Mac. On USB Overdrive settings, don't enable ...

seta r_ignorehwgamma "1" You can add that line to your q3config.cfg. To edit it, open a new Finder window, hit cmd+shift+G, and paste ~/Library/Application Support/Quake3/q3ut4/ in the box, and when the folder opens, you'll see q3config.cfg. Just open that file with a text editor like TextEdit. If you don't have that file or folder (perhaps because you ...

For whatever reason, OS X has a small amount of mouse latency. An application called SmoothMouse is supposed to fix it, although I haven't verified this. There was a popular blog post by the author of SmoothMouse a few years ago which details the issue. John Carmack weighed in in the comments: You can measure all this objectively. I took a few minutes, ...

According to this post on the Towerfall steam forums, you can find the replays at ~/Library/Application Support/TowerFall/TowerFall Replays/.

What you obviously have to do is disabling the cmd + Q command. Otherwise you will close the application every time you want to smartcast your Q. The official forums have a guide on how to disable it on OSX. The good thing with this method: you will still be able to use cmd + Q in all your other applications if you wish so. Now for changing the Key ...

I'm running OS 10.9.3 using a MacBook Pro 17" with retina display connected to a 27" Studio (Thunderbolt) Display. I mirrored the displays, then selected optimize for Thunderbolt Display. When I want to use both screens, I just deselect Mirror Displays, and it switches right over. It's the only decent way I've found to play games or watch movies/TV on my ...

Sadly, Everquest for Mac was shutdown forever on November 18, 2013.

Your problem is occurring because the current Apple Mouse can only click one button at a time, there isn't a split in the middle. The simplest solution is to re-map your controls to perform the left hand function with a keyboard key. I personally use the 'V' key. Like that, you can use your shield/secondary weapon, and dual cast spells or dual wield ...

This article covers the process in full; but beware: The Mac OS X port of The Sims 3 is, in my experience, a shoddy piece of work, and is hardly worth the trouble. (Which is a crying shame, especially given the history of Mac OS ports of the Sims franchise games.) In short: fetch the CD key from the Steam Library, and redeem it in your Origin library. You ...

You need to enable cheats. You can either do this by using the Open to LAN menu, or an external NBT editor.

Unfortunately, the game never came out for Mac directly. But, the WAD files are compressed files with the game data. They are delivered with any version of the game and actually x-platform. Therefore, it does not matter if you buy the game for windows or not. You can either use the original Doom WAD or the one coming with the BFG Edition of Doom 3. Both ...

If the key operator of the machine had the foresight to enable Time Machine, that could be used to recover the files.

You use the minecraft demo and forge doesn't work with the minecraft demo, so you need to buy minecraft or grab a copy an other way.

To get TF2 in a window: From the main menu, click Options and then the Video tab. Change the Display mode setting to Run in a window. You will probably also want to set the Resolution (which will now control the window size) to something smaller than your actual screen size so that the window fits nicely. Click OK or Apply. As noted in comments, you can ...

Regarding the comment on your question, you can change your install directory, but that's more for pushing things onto a different hard drives if your computer has them. The files you'll need will probably be sitting around in your steamapps directory. Since you're running a Mac, this should be ~/Library/Application Support/Steam/steamapps. For completeness ...

Notice: I haven't tested this on Mac OSX server but it should run. First download and install SteamCMD and then start the programm. Choose the path where the dedicated server should be installed with the force_install_dir /full/path/to/csgo-ds/command. Install the dedicated server with this command: app_update 740 validate Then quit the SteamCMD with ...

It's a bug. I contacted Firaxis support and it looks like this is a bug in either my install or computer setup. The exact cause is still being tracked down, but in a save file I sent to them they were able to fly using the Archangel armor with no problems. When I followed their instructions I got nothing, however. I'm going to try installing my Steam ...

The answer was taken from this FAQ over on GameFaqs: There's six secret bonus stages to be found in Dungeon Keeper, however, only five of them are accessible due to what seems to be an error in level 14: Sleepiburgh. Also some of the bonus levels designs are pretty messed up. Certain doors which are supposed to be locked are left open and some levels ...

Uninstalling anything from a Mac can be challenging. Here's how to do it, though. After going through the steps you've previously outlined of deleting the actual app itself, do the following: In finder: Hit shift-command-G. Type in ~/library/application support/minecraft Delete the entire Minecraft folder. Next you have to get rid of any Java prefs. ...

The Dualshock 4 works with some games. In some cases it works but only with the USB cable, but if you want to pair the controller over bluetooth anyway, follow this procedure from mactrast: Open Bluetooth preferences on your Mac. Put the DualShock 4 into Pairing mode by pressing and holding the PlayStation and Share buttons until the light bar blinks ...
