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 :)

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 ...

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 ...

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, ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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

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 ...

The driver uses dynamic performance levels depending on the card's load, which causes lag when switching from a lower level to a higher one or the other way around. But when you use 2 monitors, it sticks to the max level, so that's why you see improved performance. While I observed this on Linux, I'm fairly certain it applies to OS X too.

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

Please exit Steam and remove the Steam application from the location you installed it in (Applications by default) by dragging it to the Trash. Also go to the folder Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/Steam Note: If you are using Lion please do the following to access your Steam folder: Click "Go" in the menu bar Click "Go to Folder..."

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 ...

The game is called Museum Madness. From Wikipedia: The game starts in the bedroom of an American high school teenage boy who is seated at his computer, attempting to access the National Museum Interactive Service System, only to see that it is offline for repair. An interactive robot from the museum named MICK (Museum Interactive Computer Kiosk) ...

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.

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.

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

As DatEpicCoderGuyWhoPrograms points out, the error here is java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Too big view radius! You will need to locate your server.properties file. On Unix, this file is generated in the working directory, according to the wiki. Just search for it if you can't find it in the usual suspect folders (like the server folder, or your ...

I would try wine, which is essentially the basis of crossover. Cthulu Saves the World has a Gold Rating, but only for Gentoo Linux, which you can look up on the wine app database. Unfortunately, running games on Steam through wine is fairly hit and miss, and there are several hoops to jump through. The first step is to install a windows version of Steam. ...
