I've recently gotten a new laptop, and am attempting to play Spiral Knights on it, however the game simply will not load. Every time I attempt to start it, I get a "This game is currently unavailable, please try again at another time" error. I've tried verifying the integrity of the game cache, deleting the local content and reinstalling, rebooting my computer... nothing works. Since this has persisted for a few days, I doubt it's on steam's end, is there any fix for this?
The OS X version of the game has some issues with permission handling. The solution is to add the permission via the terminal:
- Open "Terminal.app"
cd /Users/<username>/Library/Application\ Support/Steam/SteamApps/common/spiral knights
- Hit Enter
- Type: chmod +x run.sh
- Hit Enter
Then the game should run normally from steam.
The OS X distribution doesn't give the launch script execute permissions (source).
To fix, in Terminal:
cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/Steam/SteamApps/common/spiral knights chmod +x run.sh
(If that path doesn't work, try it without the tilde or with "Users/[your username]" instead)
(You must be running as superuser to do this. Use
sudo chmod +x run.sh if you're not an admin.)
