    Need Help Running Zelda Classic on Mac OS X

    My OS version is 10.5.8 (Leopard). I downloaded the Mac OS X version of Zelda Classic v2.50. I extracted the Zelda Classic folder and placed it on my desktop. Inside the folder are the following files:

    std.txt
    string.txt
    Zelda Classic (green icon with the original Zelda logo)
    ZQuest Editor (blue icon with the Triforce)
    zquest.txt
    zscript.txt
    zstrings.txt

    I try to open Zelda Classic and I get an error message. I try opening ZQuest Editor instead and the same thing happens. The error message is the following (replace Firefox with Zelda Classic or ZQuest Editor):

    Well, if you could click "Report..." and copy/paste the error details here, we might have a better idea of what the issue is. If I were to make a guess, though, I'd say the folder you downloaded is missing key files.

    I haven't touched anything, everything is as in the download I got from this website.

    I unfortunately don't know much about Mac, but there are definitely files missing (ZLaunch, 1st.qst, 2nd.qst, 3rd.qst, and 4th.qst from a quick glance). Perhaps @Saffith knows what's wrong.

    This is a link to Saffith's dropbox and the Max version of ZC 2.50.1 RC2 in particular; that version might work... it's worth a try at leastl.

    Why would the official download link be incomplete? Anyway, I sent a PM to Saffith. He's one of the programmers responsible for the application so you might be right about him being able to help me.

    It didn't make any difference. It also lacked all of the text files for some reason.

    You could take a screenshot of your whole monitor display and post it so everyone has a better and clearer view of how your Max version doesn't work at leastl.
    Que pasa con usted? Habla "Max," no habla "Mac." ""s aqui?

    I did some research last night on the error code posted:

    It seems that the Mac version of ZC was compiled using Snow Leopard. As a result, ZC is using a load command that Leopard doesn't understand. This blog post describes the problem.
    Apologies if I'm wrong (I also don't have a Mac...yet), but every place where I did research pointed to the same issue.

    Wow, you actually made sense out of that gibberish and found the exact problem. It seems like the programmer (Saffith?) in charge of the Mac OS X port did something wrong and that only him can fix this. This website explains the root cause:

    "Generally, if you are targeting your [application] to run on multiple versions of Mac OS X, you should use the 'least common denominator' approach of developing on the older OS version. This is because newer versions may have extended the base OS API but generally newer versions will maintain backwards compatibility."

    Anyway, now that the problem has been found thanks to you, it should be easy to fix. I just have to wait until Saffith logs in and starts working on it.

    I don't have access to an older version of OS X, but I can certainly give the compile options a shot. I'll try to get to that in the next day or two.

    Thank you very much. I'll tell you if it works or not.
