Note that if you have a slower Macbook Pro (2014 or older) you might want to launch the game at 720p instead of 1080p, it's more responsive for me this way -- I have a mid-2012 retina running MacOS  High Sierra 10.13.4 and the below runs best so far:

tell application "Terminal"
    activate
    do script "cd '/Users/dan/Library/Application Support/itch/apps/FPV Freerider Recharged' && open ./FPVFreerider_Recharged.app --args -screen-fullscreen 1 -screen-width 1280 -screen-height 720"
end tell

I created a simple AppleScript icon on the desktop to launch the game, modifying this can work for people. It opens a shell and launches the game UI. Open AppleScript Editor (in the Applications folder), and paste the following in (edit your home folder):

tell application "Terminal"
    activate
    do script "cd '/Users/dan/Library/Application Support/itch/apps/FPV Freerider Recharged' && open ./FPVFreerider_Recharged.app --args -screen-fullscreen 1 -screen-width 1920 -screen-height 1080"
end tell

OK I figured it out.  I think this should be the default for your app but in the meantime using the following syntax will work. For anyone having game display problems on a retina mac with High Sierra, you can try the following:

Change directory (cd) to the folder with the game in it. For me, my user home folder is "dan", you'll need to edit this for your use:

cd "/Users/dan/Library/Application Support/itch/apps/FPV Freerider Recharged"

Then open the game using the OSX open command and --args parameter, with the app arguments as follows:

open ./FPVFreerider_Recharged.app --args -screen-fullscreen 1 -screen-width 1920 -screen-height 1080

This launches the game properly for a normal experience, it's a workaround but it works!

Hi, I tried creating an alias from the command line as in the example, for example:

> alias FPVFree="./FPVFreerider_Recharged.app -screen-fullscreen 1 -screen-width 1920 -screen-height 1080" 

However I get this error when running "open FPVFree":

permission denied: ./FPVFreerider_Recharged.app

I tried with sudo and get 'command not found'.  So I'm not sure if I can start the app using parameters like this.

I have a problem on my macbook pro retina where everything is squeezed, unplayable --- see this screenshot (attached). It hasn't worked for a while. I purchased the Recharged version thinking this might fix it but both versions have this problem. Launched from Itch, latest versions.
