Some people fixed simply with changing the exported folder for another. Just moving the site.

Hey! This program is very nice, I'd love to utilize it in my work, but I'm running into an issue on OSX High Sierra 10.13.6.

This is an error message I'm getting when trying to add custom image:


Hope this gets fixed, thanks!

Mmm, we thought this message was fixed. Thanks for the resport we will look into it. To be sure are you using the 1.1.5.1 version? Please download again the last version for mac and try again.

I'm pretty sure I'm on the latest version. I've downloaded it today with itch.io app. 

I tried to download directly from the site, and it has the same problem.

I'm not sure, where can I check the version number, but I assume that it is the latest.

Hey,

I've downloaded demo version and in VISUALS tab I have empty spaces instead of library of shapes. 

I'm running macOS 10.12.6

Yep, the bug has been reported already, we are looking into it! Hope to fix in neext update. Sorry for the incovenience!.

Thanks! Looking forward to try fixed version!

When will this bug be fixed? I have the steam version, but can't select any visuals at all. I'm on Mac OS 10.14.1

You can att he moment add custom particles clicking on "sprite" button on the right to select one of the visuals have to appear there.

The problem was hard to solve due we wanted to people add custom folders with their particles, but due Mac filesystem was unable to do it right, so we changed and we gonna add that images inside the app no folders so can be acceses via Mac with no problem.

Sorry for delay, hope to release the new version with this and other bugs fixed!

Any news on when the mac version will be updated here/on steam?

It's been almost a year, are you still working on a fix for this?

None of the suggested items work on Mojave. I just purchased this and can't even run it. :/ 

They are super bad about updating/supporting the mac version. My entire dev environment is on mac, I hate having to switch over to my bootcamp partition just to use a single piece of software. Had I known about this in advance, I wouldn't have bought the software.


That said, I can get the software to start on Mojave (14.2) with the tips they give in this post. It immediately crashes out as I try to edit the base graphic though, so it's not super useful getting it to boot on mac.

That sucks. So I guess there's no way to get a refund. I can't figure out how to even ask for one.

First of all sorry the tool not works on your system but if you read the page:

"*Test DEMO and read the Limitations List before buying!!*"

This makes sure the game/tool works on your machine and it works perfectly with all the possible limitations or OS errors and give you an idea if worth purchase on your system. This is made to avoid scams like purchase and ask for refund due not works when they do.

Btw, about how to ask for a refund:

"This is made to avoid scams like purchase and ask for refund"

What about this scams, that sell program on Steam, and after while they don't release updates or respond to their customers? 

Huh, what about this SCAMS?
