[NEED HELP] Running On Mac

#1
Can someone point me to a guide to run xonotic Mac? I have not found what I am looking for yet. I tried the brief explanation on the FAQ, but could not get it to run. Any help is appreciated.

Currently running Monterey 12.7.2 on a MacBook Air.

Hey jpumroy.

Just running the app doesn't work for me as well, as I get the following error:

Code:
You have reached this menu due to missing or unlocatable content/data
You may consider adding -basedir /path/to/game to your launch commandline

If you get the same error, I managed to make it work by running the sdl binary from the terminal app:

Code:
$ ~/Applications/Xonotic/Xonotic.app/Contents/MacOS/xonotic-osx-sdl -basedir ~/Applications/Xonotic/

(In the command above, ~/Applications/Xonotic is the unpacked the Xonotic.zip.)

Thanks for the response. I gave it a few tries and unfortunately it keeps crashing my computer. Any other thoughts?
