    Are you enquiring about help with downloading the game or with the instructions regarding installing/running the game?

    Oh that's okay no probs.

    So you're going to have to outline which steps you have taken exactly ... your User Account will need to be an Administrator account & I can't tell you for a fact it is even going to work on your MBP.

    Okay, so how are you going with the next steps?
    • Start a terminal browse to the folder where you extracted Amorous using cd
    • Make the Amorous.Unix script executable using chmod +x ./Amorous.Unix
    • Run the game by executing the script using ./Amorous.Unix

    Well firstly if you haven't already done so I strongly urge you to backup your computer before you continue as Terminal is very powerful & it's so easy to lose everything in a blink of the eye.

    Will need a screenshot of your Terminal window I think. Really hard otherwise to figure out what's going on. Shift Command 4 then place the cursor over the Terminal window & press the spacebar, followed by a mouseclick to take the shot. Cheers. SD

    Thanks but that window is missing the first part of the instructions, step one. We need to see step 1 then step 2

    Ah, I get it now ... cd is a basic change directory command used to navigate around from folder to folder.

    I think now I understand your issue, is this possibly one of your first times at using Terminal?

    Look to be perfectly honest benz animosus, I don't know a whole lot about Terminal. It's quite possible that the instructions I found for you on the internet could be incomplete ... your last post has made me realise that it's missing a vital first step for beginners, so who knows what other vital beginner steps are missing.

    The last step which is run the game by executing the script etc could be a 2 part step where they only provided the 2nd step ... "run the game" might require a terminal command in itself, I couldn't tell you for a fact if this is the case because I plainly don't use Terminal that much.

    As I wrote earlier it's extremely easy to totally screw up your Mac OS installation by using Terminal without a relatively good knowledge of what you are doing & a whole lot of diligence.

    I strongly advise you to educate yourself on Terminal as much as you need in order to carry out what you are attempting.
