HLS won't start on Mac OSX Lion There are 5 replies
Original Message posted by clatoo on 26/02/2012 at 11:09:24AM
Hello all,

Just purchased the game from Gamersgate.
I played (and loved) the demo a while back, but the full version won't start.

The HSL icon will just jump on the dock for a while, until I click it which make it disappear (close).
I have tried to download the game again, but the same thing happened.

I am running Lion on a late 2009 iMac 27''.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Edit : Well, that was quick : There is no HackSlashLoot directory in application support.
Will try the demo, maybe it will create the required data there.

I'm having the same issue and would love to know a fix. I also downloaded from GamersGate and when i try to launch the icon just bounces for a bit but the application never launches. The current demo does work but its didnt help me to launch the full version. I went into the package contents and all i could find different was that in the full version the "hackslashloot" file in the MacOS folder was a document instead of an executable as it is in the demo, i tryed changing it using terminal commands but i got an illegal action error. Now im at a loss and would love to know how to fix this.

Thanks for the tip.

When I talked about the demo, I meant an EARLY one.
But if deleting the Application support stuff doesn't help, I'll try the current demo, just to see.

Thanks again, will keep you updated.

That's a bit odd. The code for the full version is exactly the same as the demo, the demo is just missing the extra content, so if the demo works then the full version should too.

The only thing I can think it could be is that one of the data files has become corrupt in some way. On Mac locate the folder '~/Library/Application Support/HackSlashLoot/Data' and delete or rename the files in it. Then restart the HackSlashLoot app.

If that doesn't help then email me contact@gooeyblob.com and I'll take a closer look.
