Linux, Assimilate or (be)Exterminate(d)

When I first tried out OA, It was on an old machine (eMac) running an old system (10.5.6) Ran beautifully, Later I tried to run it on my slightly less fossilized machine (1st gen intel MacBook) on pretty much the same system (10.6.8 ), Didn't work, So With my 2002+ Macintosh/OS X experience, I figured it was an issue with architecture (CPU), That was not the problem, So I compared the File systems on both machine's internal Hard-drives, The eMac was using an older FS, The macbook was using a Crappy New one, So I formatted an FDD with Fat32, Moved the OpenArena folder there, Run it out of that, Finally ran, And much better than before, I would suggest formatting an FDD with Fat32 or something, (Also tried this on a sierra-running machine, Worked just as well)

That's pretty odd, given that there hasn't been a new Apple FS until this year, definitely not on 10.6.

However, perhaps you were using Case sensitive HFS+? A lot of applications have issues with that one and it's intended only for kernel development.

Strange, usually the tricks to allow OpenAena to run on OSX include setting correct file attributes and allowing unsigned apps (see (DO NOT LINK) h t t p s : / / openarena . wikia . com/wiki/Manual/Install#Mac
and (DO NOT LINK) h t t p s : / / openarena . wikia . com/wiki/Manual/Install#About_OA_0.8.8_on_Mac).. maybe the OS skips some checks, if the file is on a filesystem that does not support the required file attributes at all? Just trying to guess..


PS: FDD? Floppy Disk Drive? :-/

No, it might easily be a problem of case sensitiveness: traditionally on macOS and Windows UPPERCASE and lovercase fine names doesn't really matter for applications, but there i an option in macOS to have a case sensitive file system where "file" is different from "FILE".

As OpenArena also run on Linux, where case sensitiveness is normal, this shouldn't happen, but I guess it's not impossible it does, as almost nobody uses macOS on a case sensitive FS.
