Hello, I am on Mac OS 1.6 Snow Leopard and when I try to launch the game by double-clicking on it, the app quits immediately with an error message that says that "the app has unexpectedly quit". I've tried moving it to the application folder, but it doesn't change anything.

I think the problem comes from my OS (Snow Leopard is a bit old) but I am not an expert on the matter. Can you help me?

It may be because of Snow Leopard because I used El Capitan to build it. I just set it to OSX and it must've chosen the latest version by default. I don't think it's an issue with being blocked if you can get the app to open and crash. If resetting your computer and trying again fails, I'd assume I need to look into universal compatibility for the next build.

Here's another possible (but annoying) way to fix the compatibility problem found on the Unity Forums:

It seems to be a normal unity-mac problem. Right clicking the application> Show Package Contents> Contents> Mac OS> (BGP Pre-Alpha, or something similar for the app title)

Open Terminal and type "chmod +x"
hit space
Drag your file over to the terminal
hit Enter

If you did this correctly the file image should have changed and the game should now launch correctly.

Nope, still doesn't work. The terminal executes the command without any error popping, but nothing happens.

If the problem comes from Unity though, it's definitively my OS that is too old. The recent versions of Unity work only for Mac 10.8+.

Dang. I really hope that isn't it. A lot of people have older Macs and I'd hate for them to be blocked from playing. The game isn't even THAT complex. I'll try to see if Unity let's me build to at least as far back as 10.6.

Worst case, I'll have to put OSX 10.8 as the minimum specs.
