Hi everyone,

 

Is there a stable version that works for Mac? I tried downloading MacOZ v2.50.2 from ZeldaClassic.com but I can't even get it to open/load any quest files :( any ideas/thoughts?

 

Thanks!

I use a Mac and I got it to work. I do know you can only have ether Zelda Classic opened or ZQuest opened at a time. 

Maybe try 2.50 from ZeldaClassic.com? Link to the archives of ZeldaClassic.com: https://www.zeldacla...wnload-archive/

Tried it. I just get a black screen and when I tried loading a quest all I get is an error message saying "unable to open quest file" :(

Sounds like translocation. In Finder, move the ZC and ZQuest applications to another folder. That should be all it takes to disable it. You can move them back afterward.

Please note that the next OSX release will make ZC unusable. Period.

Apple are ceasing support for all 32-bit apps in the next OSX version, hence why a new Mac build has not been a priority, as ZC is firmly locked into being 32b, not 64b, for a version or three.

 

Other than that, I should probably update the OSX downloads on zc.com with a setup.txt file to explain translocation.

 

None of my Apple systems have the Gatekeeper 'feature': My latest OSX is Snow Leopard. :P

 

Rant follows:

Gatekeeper is Apple's way of forcing devs to use the iTunes Store and stifle open-source software, ans MS copied that into Windows 8/10 with their own store,with Windows Defender, which IMO is ransomware targeted at open-source and other low-budget developers. If you aren't a paid MS dev, you can't get whitelisted by WD, and if you aren't a paid Apple Dev, you can't be whitelisted by Gatekeeper.

"Gatekeeper" seems a fitting name then.
