Post SO6 Apple Mac trouble shooting.
The first release (1.0.957) of SO6 on the Apple Mac has a crash issue.

A fix has been uploaded and will be available once it has been through Apples submission process. Patching the Mac version takes much longer than the PC.

Important. Do not close your window to quit the game this could result in lost save games and/or lost settings. Exit the game via the in game quit buttons.

1.0.959 has been released on the app store.

Please note that if you launch the full game and the demo comes up you should delete the demo from your machine.

1.0.959 contains a crash problem on the combined schedule. We are also adding some other fixes and improvements.

Apple shut down over Christmas so it will be a few weeks before the next update is available.

Some people are getting a problem with the full version of SO6 on the Mac where they cannot save a game and/or cannot change any settings.

It seems this is due to a conflict with the demo. The odd thing is that even with the demo removed this problem continues. For now the demo link has been removed while we work out how to get around this. We will post any work around here asap.

If you cannot save games and/or change settings please try this fix. Apple do have the fix but due to Christmas closure etc. it may be a while before it get's released on the store:

* open a finder window
* from the Go menu select Computer
* now double click Macintosh HD
* go into the Users folder
* go into Your Name folder
* now from the Go menu select Go to folder
* type in 'Library/Containers/co.uk.strategicdesigns.so6' and press the ok button.
* go into the Data folder
* go into the Library folder
* go into the Application Support folder
* extract the following zip into this folder

zip (copy and paste this link): http://www.startersorders.com/downloads/so6macfix.zip

Note: You will need to go into options and turn on all the graphic settings as everything will now be low as default. Exit the game and restart. If the settings have not applied email support@startersorders.com.

IMPORTANT.

There is a bug in the Mac version of SO6 in all versions up to and including 1.1.0010 that means the backup game system does not work at all and if you attempt to revert to a backup you will lose your game.

Do not click on the revert to backup icon.

A fix has been uploaded but may take a week or two to filter through at Apple to the store.

If your game won't launch or start try browsing the SAVES location (described above) and delete the following files:

ATG.DAT
GENSET.IDX
BD.I


If this does not work try moving or deleting your exports file. Note that if you delete this file you will lose any horses you may have exported from the game. Your export file begins 'HDB_'. Delete or move any file beginning with 'HDB_'.
