Can't start the game!
« on: June 21, 2020, 01:59:36 AM »

Been dying to play it since watching Rarr's gameplay but my game just won't start...something about "read-only file system". Game is telling me to check starsector.log for more details, but for the love of me I cannot find it in my MacBook. Very anxious, please help!

Hi - sorry about the trouble! If you move the game out of the Downloads/ folder (say, into Applications/), that should resolve the issue.

Hey--
   I just had this problem, putting the Application in my Applications directory did not work, but I put it in a Folder inside the Applications directory and it did.

   I figured it out by looking at the starsector.sh inside the App bundle.
