[TE4] [TE2013] Issue with MacOS version

Postby Guest » 21 Dec 2019, 21:01

I've bought both TE2013 and TE4 but I'm having trouble playing them on MacOS Catalina. When I try installing TE4 I get this message: '“TennisElbow4-Mac.pkg” can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software. This software needs to be updated. Contact the developer for more information.' And when I try opening the version of TE2013 I've already downloaded I get this message: '"Tennis Elbow 2013” needs to be updated. The developer of this app needs to update it to work with this version of macOS. Contact the developer for more information.'

Not sure why this happens because both games worked fine before I updated my macOS.

Guest,

1) TE2013
Unfortunately, there's no 64-bit version of TE2013, as it uses an old engine that doesn't support 64 bits.

You can either :
- try to downgrade your MacOS version (I don't know if it's possible)
- install Windows and dual boot to it to play the Windows version of TE2013

2) TE4,
2 solutions :

1 ) Right-click and select "Open". This may bring up the same dialog, but with an option to Open the file anyway.

2) You can get round this by removing the quarantine Extended Attribute on the file, within the terminal:
xattr -d com.apple.quarantine /path/to/file

manutoo, thanks. The second option (of opening with a right click) worked.

I've noticed you updated the Mac version with the Alpha version but I'm not sure how to play it, as the version I just downloaded again is I still the prototype. I've not been able to update it from the game, is there a way for me to get this version?

Guest,
ignore the message about the "Prototype", I had forgotten to update it.
You have the Alpha version if the version is 0.17 in the Credits screen.
